Four years ago, Ashraf Al-Khaled and his bride were celebrating what was supposed to be the happiest day of their lives, when an Al-Qaeda suicide bomber walked into their wedding and blew himself up, killing both of their fathers in front of their eyes. The couple lost 27 members of their family that day. It's a sad fact that stories like Ashraf's pepper the news almost daily. In the last 5 years, over 88,000 people have been killed or injured in terrorist attacks worldwide. The majority, like Ashraf, were Muslims. How can someone be so robbed of their humanity that they happily commit mass murder and suicide? It's one of the fundamental human questions of our era, one that has haunted Ashraf since his wedding day, and what is now driving him to rise from horrific tragedy to take an unprecedented step - breaking the silence in the Muslim community on this taboo subject by speaking out against terrorism.

Worst documentary ever
27 March 2016 | by tharar65See all my reviews

Without a doubt the worst documentary about terrorism I've ever seen. Muslims don't kill for their religion, they do it for other reasons. Carrie Lemack is actually exalting a beautiful misunderstood religion. I give this one star that's all. Carrie should just mind her own business as well. Not suitable enough for me to even consider watching either. Terrorist acts is really rare but they're a part of living in this world. I certainly wouldn't recommend this useless documentary to anyone. Like every other relative in that she's certainly not a terrorism expert. You want to stop terrorism fine get off your butt and actually fly out there to the Middle East to start a school or something Miss Lemack. Sorry to be so sharp but your film is not worth watching.
