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
I agree with most of the comments here, except for certain ones by Aan, below. How perverse even to suggest there could be "another side to the story" that would possibly justify the *absolute* moral outrages documented in this film. If we can't even all agree that teaching and preaching hatred is inexcusable -- especially the vicious, institutionalized brand of it shown here -- then there is no hope for the planet.
The film makes many interesting observations that are compelling in their truthfulness. One is that our dumb obsession with political correctness -- look at our media's reluctance even to give the enemy a name -- is the very thing the radicals exploit. We are shown incredible footage of them openly plotting our doom right in our midst, exploiting not only American hospitality, but civil liberties such as freedom of speech, which would be the first thing they'd take away from us if they could. Don't think for a second they aren't laughing at the irony -- or at us!
This is an issue that, like global warming, should transcend US politics and any bickering between the Western Left and Right. People who offer excuses for what these psychopaths are doing and intend to keep on doing are, in the words of Lenin, "useful idiots" who help further their evil agenda.
For the record, I'm a Democrat.
