Storyline

For three years a well-known Norwegian extremist gives unique access to his everyday life encouraging jihadists in Europe until he is arrested for supporting terrorism by recruiting for ISIS. This extremely timely film highlights the tension between free societies and those who take advantage of their values while seeking to undermine them. Recruiting for Jihad is especially resonant and newsworthy given the deadly incidents in Stockholm, London, Berlin, Nice, San Bernardino, Paris and elsewhere. Written by Curry Film

a good documentary
7 February 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

This norwegian documentary about the radical muslim forces, are well made but at times a bit unilaterally presented. they focus far too much on the male part of the muslim radicalists, and forgets completely the women and girls that also are a great part of the ummah-group, who also travels to syria and iraq to take part in the creation of the chaliphat. åsne seierstad has written a book called ''two sisters'', that elaborates the female position in the muslim society in norway, and their involment with the ummah group, and how they are radicalized,and join forces with the is in syria and iraq.

i remember very well when the film makers were fighting their rights in court when police seized unpublished material from them, and i recall that i thought the norwegian security police had violated the rights of free speech and protection of sources.

another impression from this film is that mr hussain has the same techniques and demeanors to recruit new members to the islamic faith, as radical norwegian christian movements does. it is said that there are 200000 muslim believers in norway, so it amazes me that the ''healthy'' and stout christian movements doesnt enter the track and starts mobilizing. its a fact that an increasing part of the norwegian population are off-baptizing themselves, becoming ateists, or simply converts to other religions.nothing wrong with that, its just a symptom that '' my '' norway are being internationalized,multiethnical and multireligous.

do see this film and take a seat in ubydullah hussains pocket,and judge yourself is he a lure or just a fake......and a great thanks to the film makers even though they forgot to mention ayan,leila and the others......
