Obsession- Radical Islam's War against the West: Full Length DVD


"Muslim DVD rattles voters in key battleground states": CNN:

DENVER, Colorado (CNN) -- On a Sunday morning just weeks before the presidential election, Priscilla Linsley opened her local Denver newspaper and discovered a DVD inside.

Clarion Fund released "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West," in 70 newspapers in key swing states.

"I was shocked at the content and horrified that this had been in my Sunday paper," said Linsley, a 74-year-old Democrat, who watched about half of the video before throwing it in the trash.

"I have Muslim friends and respect Islam as a religion and felt that this was really hateful," said Linsley.

The hourlong film on DVD, "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West," was made by Israeli filmmaker Raphael Shore and shows disturbing, sometimes violent images.

Rima Barakat Sinclair, who is Muslim and a Republican, was so angry she called her local lawmakers in Denver. Video Watch voters reaction to the DVD »

"It is riddled not only with misleading facts but outright fabrication," said Barakat Sinclair.

In September, some 28 million of the "Obsession" DVD's were distributed as advertising inserts in 70 newspapers, primarily in critical swing states such as Colorado, Florida and Ohio.

Comment:

28 million copies distributed in newspaper inserts at election time?

Perhaps Obama is indeed an Arab!

Not that If Obama is or isn't makes any difference. But these people just wasted $28 million @$1 per DVD including distribution costs to make use of the middle name.

Pavo,

I don't think the persistent use of sophomoric Islamophobia like this to further the neo-con cause in the USA since 9/11 needs any further comment. So, I didn't think it was necessary to flog an oft flogged dead horse.

But your questions are interesting:

is it possible that this is done by republicans to malign obama ? No I do not. This is some other shadowy pressure group in action.

What I did find surprising was that the 70 newspapers which distributed this DVD includes the NY Times, considered the Admin's mouthpiece, and wouldn't have done it for the revenue alone.

do you think that the americans are stupid enough to believe this? Yes, some are indeed, like the old lady who told McCain during the last debate that Obama was an Arab and she didn't trust him. And he replied "No Ma'am, he's a decent family man, citizen" implying that Arabs can't be decent family men and US citizens.

do you think that the americans are stupid enough to believe this?

do you think that obama or mc cain are any different?

As far as dealings with Muslim areas of conflict are concerned, they're both the same. Though with the difference that Obama is a loudmouthed lout with a stick, while McCain is likely to do the same things but in a covert manner.

Your advice duly noted.
