Sleep, my children. All this is pure rhetoric. They have your values and would not murder innocent women and children. They are like us, with the same values. So sleep on. Do not let their declamations make you afraid. Sleep on and sleep for eternity.

What are we to do ? Do not just show all this.

When there is a problem, there is an answer too. Do not just present the problem, we know that already. Give me an answer fast so that we can act upon it.

Also Eastern Culture

I just wanted everybody to know that not just Western culture but Eastern culture also faces this threat. Radical muslims have also caused great destruction in the Eastern countries such as India , Phillipines, Thailand etc. No other country has suffered more at the hands of islamic exterimism then India

The west needs to wake up!

It is imperative that we ALL realize that this is a threat against WESTERN CULTURE - not the Jews, Not the Christians, but against all of us. Please educate everyone you can about this video - also about Steve Emerson's JIHAD IN AMERICA (1994) about the 1993
World Trade Center bombings.

This is NOT new but has been spreading - insidiously - like a cancer, for many years. If we do not wake up, soon, I fear we are doomed.

It is 1938, and they are lacing their bootstraps. THE WEST NEEDS TO WAKE UP!

Great vid about radical islamists. This is Not about moderate peace loving muslims but about radicals who are brainwashed to kill.
Excellent job on informing us about the real danger.

Scared in the U,S

I'm a 15 year old Northwestern High school student in Rock Hill,SC whose name really isn't important and today and my 3rd block class I seen some things that made me want to cry and fight at the same time. In my 3rd block class my great teacher by the name of Ms. Landsman showed our class the special that she recorded off Fox which was the movie "Obsession". I'm so happy she showed it to us because I was completely unaware of how much the radical Islam hated us and for no reason at all just because we're not Islamic. Now I know why we're fighting in Iraq because if we are not over there fighting then we'll be over here fighting them. Either we were go come to them or they were go come to us and Bush protected us by going to Iraq to fight because if he didn't they would have bombed us again right after 9/11. My biggest fear and main concern is the fact that the Democrat party has taken over the House of Rep. and the Senate now don't get me wrong My family is democratic so of course that's what I'm go believe in it's just the fact that I'm afraid that the democrat party will pull us out of the war and as soon as they do that. The radical Islams are going to attack us again only this time worst than before please think about what I'm saying and not just think of me as some kid who don't know what's going on because I feel like obsession should be watched by every American and that our troops need to stay in Iraq. Around 30 minutes ago I would have thought that our troops needed to come home but after watching "Obsession" my opinion has did a whole 360 and I want to say thanks to Fox and Ms. Landsman for allowing me to watch this film and they you for making it.

Thanks for taking the time out to read

Terror in the name and FOR GOD???

I am a Punjabi by race and a Sikh by religion who has been taught that EVERY person is the SAME ...that ALL belong to ONE master...that GOD does not become any bigger if praises are directed to GOD and nor does GOD become any smaller if you choose to dispraise GOD... GOD I am taught is full of love and does not the least of all need human or any kind of protection!

I just viewed the film clip titled 'Obsession' and must say that the threat is indeed VERY REAL. Propogation of hatred by muslims againts non muslims in the NAME of GOD and for the PROTECTION GOD is very obvious even in the country that I live - Malaysia.

The WEST in particular and the rest must WAKE UP from their slumber and stop this evil from spreading it's twisted perception of GOD and the need to hate another being to "protect" GOD.

Review by Melanie Phillips, November 7, 2006

I have just viewed the film 'Obsession', the documentary about radical Islam's war on the west, which was also shown on Fox News in the US at the weekend and which you can read about on this website. It should be made compulsory viewing for every politician and pundit who clings to the misguided belief that all we face is terrorism rooted in various grievances around the world. It is the single most powerful and terrifying public exposition of the fact that a global Islamic jihad is now being waged from Bali to Istanbul, from Chechnya to Madrid, from Morocco to Manhattan, from Thailand to Bloomsbury – and that the world that is under attack is deeply in denial about what it is facing. More than that, this film shows in graphic and undeniable detail that this jihad is a direct descendant of Nazism. It has clear historical links – it was to the Nazi-supporting Mufti of Jerusalem in 1941 that Hitler vouchsafed that he intended first and foremost a war of extermination against world Jewry; it has the same agenda of genocide of the Jews and world domination, and the same techniques (and almost identical motifs and visual imagery) of whipping up a frenzy of murderous rage against America and the Jews through repeated hysterical claims of their purported and infernal intention to destroy the Islamic world, conveyed through truly diabolical imagery straight out of the infernal handbooks of medieval and Nazi blood-lust.

Some of the footage in this film leaves you speechless. The Shatat series on al Manar TV, for example, transmitted into millions of Muslim homes around the world, which purports to show a Jew kidnapping a Christian child and slitting his throat in order to use the blood to make Passover matzahs. This of course was the medieval blood libel against the Jews which caused unspeakable savagery to be meted out against them on the basis of a monstrous lie; and here is this same abominable lie, animated for TV and thus doubtless convincing millions of Muslims of the diabolical nature of the Jews. Just as horrifying are the children seen being indoctrinated to hate Jews and Americans, to kill them and to die. A three year old girl, asked why she doesn't like the Jews, answers 'because they are apes and pigs' (a common depiction) as was said by 'our God in the Koran'. The images of these young children, with their sweet and innocent faces, being programmed to hate and to kill are unspeakable. As a former member of the Hitler Youth observes, the techniques and iconography are identical to those used by the Nazis — because they were learned from the Nazis.

The similarities to the Nazis are indeed overwhelming. The screaming demagogues, the wholesale indoctrination of children into the cult of hatred and death, the repeated use of diabolical propaganda, the aims of genocide and global domination – and the fact that although such aims are constantly reiterated, although the deeds that follow plumb unimaginable depths of barbarity, although the lies are as transparent as they are systematic, the watching world still refuses to acknowledge that this is indeed a global war that is being waged. Just as in the thirties, it takes refuge in fantasies and excuses and refuses to act; worse than in the thirties, it elevates Islamic fascists to downtrodden martyrs and heroes. There are Muslims in this film who speak the truth plainly and unmistakably: the Palestinian correspondent for the Jerusalem Post Khaled abu Toameh, who says that the Islamic world has hijacked his religion and has declared holy war upon the west in order to destroy its civilisation and Christianity; or Nonie Darwish, born and brought up in Gaza, who relates how as a child she was taught jihad, to wage holy war and conquer the world for Islam, and how her classmates would cry with the emotion of declaring themselves ready to die as martyrs for the cause. And Nonie Darwish is a middle-aged woman. The widespread belief in the west that jihadism, suicide bombers and the rest of it are merely responses to recent actions by Israel or America, or to 'oppression' by Israeli occupiers, is demonstrably ridiculous.

This is a film about fanaticism. It does not make easy viewing. It destroys the fiction that Islamic terror is the product of 'grievances' about specific conflicts. It demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is instead the product of fanatical, hysterical, paranoid, medieval hatred, bigotry and power-mania. What it shows above all is that we are up against an ideology which turns millions towards madness and savagery – but we are totally failing to combat that ideology. Indeed, we don't even recognise it for what it is. This film goes a long way towards opening our eyes.

Thank you for letting me see a portion of this movie. I pray that God will bring all the darkness to light. This movie will prayfully open people's eyes to the truth about the Jihadists and then they need to pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
