Every USA Church, Synagogue Gets Militant Islam DVD

Every USA Church, Synagogue Gets Militant Islam DVD

Over 325,000 rabbis and pastors

Last update: 12:01 a.m. EDT Oct. 20, 2008
VISTA, Calif., Oct 20, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Over 325,000 rabbis, priests and pastors in every Jewish and Christian congregation in America just received the award-winning documentary Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West on DVD, according to the publisher of a new periodical for clerical leaders, The Judeo-Christian View, which included the film inside the first issue.
The publication — signed by dozens of rabbis and pastors who concur that U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s policies on same-sex unions and partial birth abortion tend to inflame U.S. tensions with Islamists and are at odds with their ancient Biblical faiths — went out by U.S. mail and is heading online ( http://www.thejudeo-christianview.com/) to another 10 million congregational leaders and laity as part of an ambitious subscription strategy. The new “multimedia opinion journal” also includes an “interfaith video sermon” on DVD and online that discusses Obama’s support for repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, which shields states from forced recognition of same-sex marriages originating in Massachusetts, California and now, Connecticut pursuant to a state Supreme Court ruling on October 10.
Clerical signers include: Rabbi Herzel Kranz from The Jewish Center of Silver Spring, Maryland; Rev. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Father Frank Pavone, Roman Catholic head of Priests for Life; Rev. Rosemary Schindler, San Francisco Board of the Anti-Defamation League and member of the Oscar Schindler family (of Schindler’s List); Dr. James M. Hutchens, Brigadier General and Deputy Chief of US Army Chaplains (Ret.); Rev. Ben Kinchlow, former co-host of The 700 Club; Dr. Bruce Fong, president, Michigan Theological Seminary; Dr. Kenneth L. Hutcherson, Antioch Bible Church, Kirkland, Washington; Dr. Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of Moody Memorial Church, Chicago; and Rabbi Yehuda Levin of the Rabbinical Alliance of America of Torah Loyal Jews and The Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada.
The publication links Jewish Scriptures (e.g., Leviticus 18:21) on child sacrifice to graphic video descriptions of partial birth abortion — a late-term procedure that involves piercing the skull and vacuuming the brain of the fetus, something Sen. John McCain would ban, but Obama would expand via taxpayer funding and the proposed “Freedom of Choice Act,” which eliminates all current U.S. restrictions on late-term abortion. The document’s signatories contend Obama’s policy to liberalize abortion, “combined with his effort to kill a bill that would protect babies who survive abortions, tends to gut the USA’s moral standing to condemn jihadic use of Muslim children as suicide bombers; both are horrific cases of child sacrifice that support a Culture of Death and demonstrate utter contempt for the Judeo-Christian Culture of Life.”
The rabbi, priest and pastor signers also state, “Full embrace of homosexual unions by our nation and the next administration would tell violent Islamists that the infidel USA has expressly rejected once-shared Abrahamic, Mosaic and Christian teaching regarding ‘sodomy’. So too would flagrant ‘gay integration’ of our overseas military forces [a policy Obama supports]. We advocate “love the sinner, hate the sin”; militant Islamists would murder our fellow Americans for sexual error, as well as us for offering them hope and forgiveness!” The online edition graphically condemns Islamist executions of gays, young girls and women domestically and abroad.
Dr. O’Neal Dozier, General Publisher, said the next issue will be The Judeo-Christian View on “The Free Exercise of Islamic Violence.” Dozier, an African-American pastor, attorney and former NFL player, said the Obsession DVD went out with the print edition to all U.S. congregations of Judeo-Christian heritage as a donation to the Clarion Fund, Inc. Clarion recently distributed the film to 28 million U.S. households and was harshly condemned for it by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an advocacy group linked by critics to radical Muslims and opposed to the 2006 documentary.
Although juxtaposing Bible passages with the two senators’ policies, the multiracial signers of Dozier’s new periodical reject “bigotry against peaceful Muslims”, racism, “any kind of hatred, mean-spiritedness or gay- bashing”, or mistreatment of “young mothers pressured by boyfriends, parents or society to abort their pre-born infants.” Urging “love the sinner, hate the sin”, the signers encourage the same “attitude toward erring politicians as well” and expressly reject discredited claims that Obama, whose father was Muslim, is today a Muslim.

Who’s Afraid of ‘Obsession

Who’s Afraid of ‘Obsession’?

17 October 2008 15:44 FOCUS News Agency

Los Angeles. The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) – an organization identified as a California-based Muslim Brotherhood front – convened a press conference today in Los Angeles with a senior representative of local law enforcement and members of other faiths, FrontPageMagazine.com reports. The stated purpose is to unveil a new “united front” initiative called the “Coalition for Renewing American Democracy” which MPAC has apparently conjured up in order to inveigh against “Obsession,” a documentary film that powerfully, and authoritatively, dissects radical Islam’s war against the West. Shortly after its 2005 premiere, the film won awards at three top international film festivals.

The problem for the Muslim Brotherhood is that millions of copies of “Obsession” have been distributed around the United States in recent weeks in national magazines, to several hundred college campuses, at both political conventions, and in local newspapers. As a result, many millions of Americans have had an opportunity to be educated about the ambitions of those who adhere to the Islamic political and legal system known as “Shariah” – namely, the realization through “jihad” of a world-wide and brutally repressive Islamic theocracy.

“Obsession” utilizes actual footage of radical Islamist rallies and calls to violent jihad against America, along with interviews of Muslim and non-Muslim experts on radical Islamism. It captures unabashed exhortations to violence and murder aimed at Americans, Jews and other Westerners that are shocking in their savagery, even to those familiar with the nature of contemporary Islamofascism; they tend to leave an even more lasting impression on those that are not.

Ignoring radical Islam will lead to peril

September 24, 2008

“Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West,” a Liberty Film Festival winner for best feature documentary film in DVD form, is a must-see movie for anyone.

The president of the Hudson Institute, a respected think tank, writes, “If you haven’t seen it, you should! And if you have seen it, you should insist that others see it as well. Our future may depend on it.” United States Naval War College Professor Jeffrey Norwitz sees it as “expertly produced with solid historic research; … every viewer regardless of background will learn something.”

The film is “about a radical worldview, and the threat it poses to us all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike,” according to the nonprofit, non-partisan organization that made the film. The organization’s mission is to educate Americans about national security issues through documentary films, Web sites and educational materials.

The one-hour film is especially valuable, as in it the radical jihadists tell the story themselves. Unedited footage from Arab television shows rare scenes, from the education and indoctrination of Arab children in the classroom, where they are taught to value jihad and “the love of fighting, … for the sake of Allah,” to a suicide-bomber induction ceremony and fiery speeches in Middle East mosques and in London and New York City streets, preaching the Islamization of the world and the destruction of the Jews, the Americans and the British.

What Wikipedia called “notable counter-terrorism figures” provide the analysis in the film. Among them are Egyptian-American writer Nonie Darwish, a graduate of the American University in Cairo, daughter of an Egyptian lieutenant general who headed Fadayeen terror operations against Israel, and was assassinated by the Israelis in 1956 when Darwish was 8; Bethlehem-born Walid Shoebat, with a Palestinian father and an American mother, an anti-Israeli activist turned supporter of Israel after Sep. 11, 2001, a controversial former Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorist; West-Bank-born Khaled Abu Toameh, with an Israeli Arab father and a Palestinian Arab mother, a graduate of the Hebrew University, and a senior reporter for the Jerusalem Post; Alfons Heck, a member of Hitler Youth who became a Nazi officer, described by Wikipedia as “a fanatical adherent of Nazism’s ideologies.”

The film contains footage of radical Muslims’ global jihad attacks in New York City, London, Madrid; in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe — “all fronts of a global jihad,” says one analyst.

Analysts were unanimous that “history repeats itself,” as the film reviews Hitler’s Mein Kampf of the German “Aryans” against the “Jewish peril,” connects “the dots” showing parallels between radical Islamists’ jihad and the Nazi holocaust, the similar propaganda techniques of continuously demonizing enemies, the remarkable resemblance in manipulating young minds toward fanatic hatred and training followers to accept death — the difference being death for the Fatherland was dictated by Hitler, a man, while death for the sake of Allah claims the sanction of the Almighty.

As the film shows, the 1998 Jordanian and Palestinian school book teaches, “This religion (Islam) will destroy all other religions through the Islamic Jihad fighters,” a final goal of the radical jihadists.

“I was an intense believer in the Nazi ideology,” says Heck in the film. “I know what a supreme dedication to an ideology can do.”

“We need to understand the culture that produces terrorism,” says Darwish. After 9/11, people asked “why do they hate us?” Some blame themselves and U.S. foreign policies. This “distracted” from the real reason of an “ideology that wants to destroy us.”

Professor Robert Wistrich of the Sassoon Center for Antisemitism thinks of a “particular strand” in Islam represented by the radicals that challenges the “sacredness of life” embraced by Western culture.

The film shows Sheik Ibrahim Mahdi speak on Palestinian TV: “We must educate our children on the love of Jihad for the sake of Allah. And the love of fighting ….” And Palestinian TV footage of 1998 shows children recite, “I march quickly toward my death.”

The former dean of Islamic Law at Qatar University laments, “We have not succeeded in making our children love life ….”

Analysts asked in the film: If radical jihadists dehumanize the West and preach every day that it is evil and must be destroyed, and if Palestine and Saudi TV preach kids to want to become suicide bombers,”what do you expect will happen?

Palestinian journalist Toameh says, “As a Muslim I feel pretty worried, … and I feel shamed; … Islam has been hijacked by different fanatic groups.” He hopes it is “out of fear and not out of sympathy” that the “silent majority” of Muslims don’t speak up.

Professor Wistrich asserts that that there is “No evil that simply has disappeared on its own accord.” He laments, evil triumphs “because there is not enough people who stand up” to defeat it.

You “can’t claim ignorance anymore,” says Darwish, and analysts in the film agree if we continue to ignore radical Islam, we do so “at our own peril,” and “risk our own demise.”

A. Gaffar Peang-Meth, Ph.D., is retired from the University of Guam, where he taught political science for 13 years.

You Must Watch ‘Obsession’ because CAIR doesn’t want you to know the truth about Radical Islam

Topics: Understanding Islam

Via Dan Riehl, I see that CAIR is once again “Outraged” – this time in Fla – and they want to shut down the distribution of copies of the movie, Obsession, being distributed in newspapers there. Apparently a few politically correct, highly ill informed, naive papers have refused to include the insert including one in North Carolina. Dan has the links to two videos to YouTube by CAIRtv in which the also obviously politically correct, highly ill-informed, naive newscasters play right into the hands of the Muslim activist group (with a highly dangerous agenda for America) and with proven ties to terrorists.

Dan has posted on the campaign and has done a review of Obsession here.

Now given that CAIR doesn’t want you to see the movie and just in case you haven’t received a free copy or somehow have failed to see it by now, please watch this 6 part youtube FoxNews film which Lionheart suggests is one of the best and most informative films you will see on the threat we in the civilized World face in relation to Islam’s Holy War against us (HT – Lionheart for posting the links to all six parts at YouTube): Fox News:The Threat of Radical Islam (Parts 1 – 6). I was fortunate enough to watch the entire Fox News special at the time of its airing and enjoyed every minute of it. And, of course, E.D. Hill as the announcer, made it all the more effective.

Middle East professor says controversial Obsession movie “straightforward” (Via Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch):

Always refreshing to see a member of that bastion of Islamic apologetics — academia — actually being objective. More on this story. “Swift dispute, radical Muslims DVD flare scrutiny of Islam,” by Chris Casey for the Tribune, September 21:

James Lindsay, an associate professor of Middle Eastern history at CSU, takes an opposite view on “Obsession.” He believes it’s a straightforward look at radical Islam.

He said the producers are explicit that film is about the radical ideology within Islam, which is advanced by the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida and other groups. The film’s introduction states that most Muslims are peaceful and don’t support terror.

The militant Islamic branch — which the film says makes up about 10 percent to 15 percent of a worldwide Muslim population of 1.2 billion, the world’s second-largest religion behind Christianity — has a conquest ideology, Lindsay said.

“It’s one of subjugating the world to their ideology. There is not room for another ideology, according to the radical Muslim ideology, and it’s frightening,” he said. “But it’s part and parcel of the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and the al-Qaida types that they want to impose their will on everyone.”[…]

Lindsay, the CSU professor, said the Muslims who flew the airplanes into the Twin Towers felt they were doing God’s work.

Muslims who say “jihad” means the struggle for personal betterment aren’t giving the full picture of what’s written in the classical text, he said. Rather, the text says the Islamic practitioner is preparing himself to be a better warrior.

“The idea of the jihad as laid out by extremists is one of the doctrines within the Quran itself,” Lindsay said. “It’s a fundamental tenet of Islamic religion and it has been in Islamic history — engaging in warfare against the enemies of Islam.”

Conflicts between the West and Islam are inevitable, Lindsay said, because the demands of Islamic law are in conflict with the West’s approach to law and religion. The Quran speaks of creating a society that’s obedient to God’s law, not obedient to men’s model, he said.

Lindsay believes the way to deal with Muslim immigrants — as in the case of the JBS Swift workers — is to explain how employment rules and policies operate in the United States. “I have no desire to make any accommodations to Islamic law, and that’s my opinion.”
