Storyline

Obsession is a film about the threat of Radical Islam to Western civilization. Using unique footage from Arab television, it reveals an 'insider's view' of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. The film also traces the parallels between the Nazi movement of World War II, the Radicals of today, and the Western world's response to both threats. Featuring interviews with Daniel Pipes, Steve Emerson, Alan Dershowitz, a former PLO terrorist, and a former Hitler Youth Commander. Written by Anonymous

6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The worst abuse that one can inflict on a child is to teach hate.

This simple statement from the film stood out above all others. After you watch this documentary your eyes will be opened to the ugly truth regarding how religious and political propaganda can warp an entire generation. This must-see documentary exposes westerners, most of whom have never experienced true propaganda and hatred, to the truth by revealing one of radical Islam's most powerful tools. See first hand, uncensored clips from radical Islamic television, movies and music videos designed to teach one thing: hate. The film draws compelling parallels between Nazi Germany's propaganda, the Hitler Youth and radical Islam's methods use of filmed media to spread propaganda to their young that goes far beyond anti-Semitism. This is not just a stark reminder about the power of hate, but also the power of the television and movie medium.
