so you know, sad thing is you already know. Get this out to people who do not know.

Remember the Nazis?
The few Muslims who should oppose radical Islam are keeping quiet. That is exactly what the German people did when the Nazis were growing into a power house. The average German thought that the Nazi party was a joke until it was too late and the Germans were trapped because they kept their mouths shut. We are seeing EXACTLY what happened in Germany except this time it is the ENTIRE PLANET which the so-called peaceful Muslims want. We know that we Jews are in the very center of their hate and we are all at risk, even in the United States. AND WE ARE REPEATING THE SAME THING THE GERMANS DID.
Right now over 50 shooting wars are going on...ALL OF THEM BY RADICAL ISLAM. According to their "holy" book, all people who are not Muslims should be killed where they stand. The world needs to get together and STOP THEM before they infect the entire planet with their hate.
Unfortunately, the "United Nations" isn't united...it is a garbage can that is filled with Islam. Make no mistake, this is a real threat to the world. Now is the time to stop them...NOW before we are all enslaved or murdered.

it is very sad to see this movie. truth is never pleasant. it is even worst to see someone like goldstone..... and those cameras in Hebron to show "poor" ppl - most of them are supplied by our own.......what about all those programs like "peace now" who are ready to give land for peace - they should watch it and see how history shown us and i hope taught us a lesson.
we have to stand with Muslims (not islamists) who are Abraham's children and ready for peace. we have to help them to speak up.
and btw, never fear - it looked very scary in ussr too (i am sure of it), but as you know now - not many ppl supported commis.
G-d is on the side of peace, peace will come no matter what those who oppose it do......

watching this video, one of the things that is so alarming is how careful the world is to be politically correct that they don't think at all. listening to radio coverage after the fort hood massacre, the media was so careful to down play the shooter's religious ideology even when survivors of the massacre reported his yelling allah akbar before shooting, as well as his known strong extremist views and instead focused only on the stress of the trauma of war. no doubt there is great trauma in going to war, but it is important and vital for the media to report with honesty and integrity about what was and is really happening in the world

Sadly, there are people who call themselves Muslims whose hate filled rhetoric is entirely venomous and evil in its intent. They give others who have no such feelings about Jews, and no such feeling about this diverse world, a bad name. It's important not to tar them all with the same brush because there is evil everywhere, and it lurks in all corners of the worlds, within those who have a need to find someone to hate, someone to eliminate, and that someone seems to fulfill a deep inner void, a need that is never satiated, because it's not about love at all, but about issues that are deep rooted and the routes taken to eliminate these issues, sadly, involve the elimination of others. It doesn't work. it will never work.
The carnage and terrible destruction must stop if this world is ever to become a place of compassion and truth.

a pity the world has yet to stand together on erasing this threat
if this film does not wake up the world, i do not know what will...these people through overpopulating and educating their children to hate from birth is the scurge of the Earth...I pray all governments stand together to eradicate these threats and together hunt down this evil...i fear that most people just walk around with their heads in the sand hoping it will go away...but these people will not...and like Goldie Meir said, "if they loved their children more than they hate Israel, the world would be a better place." however their quest is no different from hitler...to rule the world...taking a religion and turning it into hatred, cruelty, death, and poison...they are the scum of the Earth...and we all have to stop being afraid of them...instead we need to ban together and as said before...hunt them down...cut off the head of the snake...their money to fund their attacks/attack their camps when they are training...we watch them on satellites...let's do away with them and all of their opportunities by searching and infiltrating their mosques...because in each mosque they plan...and let's stop being afraid of profiling...we know who they are...and let's stop worrying about being poltiically correct or face death because we were trying to be fair...they aren't fair so let's play by their rules...and not those of us who are sane...

"Islam's War Against The West"
No one talks of Radical Nazism or Radical Communism

However, the problem is that there is a problem, and many Muslims are arguing for reform.

Wow. Compelling, and absolutely essential viewing for all ostriches who have their heads buried in the sand of political correctness! Thank you for your candor and your courage in making this critical DVD. All must see it. May G-d bless and protect you and all innocents in this cataclysmic struggle against the evil of terrorism.

Churchill once said something about riding the back of a tiger hoping he would eat you last. Radical Islam will kill so-called Christian crusaders as well as Jews

the opportunities it affords. I have seen the Obsession
