Truly must-see TV for American voters: Fox News to broadcast 'Obsession' starting this afternoon
Center for Security Policy ^ | 28 Oct 06 | Center for Security Policy

Posted on 10/28/2006 12:31:32 PM PDT by LSUfan

At 5:00 p.m. EST today, Fox News will render perhaps its most important public service this election season: It will broadcast on "The Big Story" program the first half of an extraordinary documentary - Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West. The second half will be aired in the same time slot next week, four days before what promises to be a hugely consequential election.

Obsession's subject matter could hardly be more topical and the timing of these broadcasts more providential. The film describes the nature, objectives and ideological roots of the totalitarian movement that currently poses the most immediate and a potentially catastrophic threat to America and the rest of the Free World: Islamofascism. It does so in a way that not only informs its viewers of the danger we face but compels them to reflect upon the risks associated with inaction - or, worse yet, appeasement - in the face of such a threat.

The filmmakers combine three elements to make Obsession exceptionally compelling. First, an array of profoundly knowledgeable and articulate experts provide historical and strategic context to the phenomenon of this violent theo-ideology. They include: the Center for Security Policy's Senior Mideast Fellow, Caroline Glick; historian Sir Martin Gilbert; former Hitler Youth Group Leader Alfons Heck; columnist and researcher Daniel Pipes; investigator Steven Emerson; former federal prosecutor John Loftus; journalist Brigitte Gabriel; and Professor Robert Wistrich.

Second, anti-Islamist Muslims and former Muslims provide powerful first-hand testimonials about the nature of Islamofascism as seen through the eyes of those most immediately at risk from its violence and repression: the Islamists' peaceable, tolerant co-religionists. Among the incredibly powerful contributions from this group were comments by: Canadian professor and columnist Salim Mansur (a featured participant in the Center's Muslim Speak Out program); Nonie Darwish, the daughter of a suicide-bomber; Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist; Palestinian journalist Khaled Abu Toameh; Pakistani expat and editor Tashbiy Sayyed; and California-based Professor Khaleel Mohammed.

Perhaps the most evocative material of all, however, is provided by the Islamofascists themselves, in the form of footage taken directly from various television broadcasts from around the Muslim world. These scenes have been compiled by two formidable organizations, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and Palestinian Media Watch, and feature various imams, talking heads and political figures exhorting their audiences to bring "Death to America" and legitimizing the destruction of Christians and Jews and their societies. The point is unmistakable: Such virulent propaganda is being broadcast incessantly on such official outlets as Saudi, Iranian, Qatari and Palestinian television and Hezbollah's TV network, al Manar, cultivating among particularly young people the most extreme sorts of jihadist sentiment - including the notion of murderous self-sacrifice for Allah.

In a television advertisement aired in six states this Fall, the Center has urged every voter to cast his or her ballot as though their lives depend on it - for indeed they do. Viewing Obsession is a prerequisite to understanding just how literally that is the case, and to the evaluation of which candidates most clearly understand, and are best equipped to deal with, the danger posed by Islamofascism and its enablers.

Just Good Grief - how did they manage to slip this past the dimRats who would've surely demanded it not be shown - or at, the least, gutted beyond any meaning...

Just WOW - setting my automatic timer for both days -

The people who need to see this most would rather watch CNN's Broken Government or an AlGore movie. To them this is just FNC trying to scare people into voting GOP.

Most likely it will be a short segment (the movie is over 30 mins long) on the Big Story at 5PM EST... It's not listed on the WebSite, but they are talking about it on the FoxNews.

I am hoping this FR thread gets at least a third of the response Freepers devoted to the Dixie Broody hens thread - over 900 posts...

If not, I'm about ready to give up on FR - a great many of the serious Freepers seem to have left...

to see some clips from "Obsession"

http://www.obsessionthemovie.com/

Maybe the reason the lefties didn't get this banned is that it isn't billed on FOX as "Obsession" - but as "The Big Story" and so slipped under their radar. Watch for screaming and hollering after tonight to ban the second week - which will serve ? to give a heads up to those who didn't manage to catch the first episode tonight? That would be perfect - millions tune in for the last one - just before voting

So it IS available. It's not offered on netflix.

ATTN ALL FR NETFLIX CUSTOMERS: please go ask Netflix to carry this documentary! They have a "requests" section.

A freepworthy thing to do.

Just watched the 12 min version. Powerful. The indoctrination of little children, whipping them up to hate and into a frenzied desire to kill and be killed, should make Americans think.

The entire book is free to read on-line. It is outstanding. Also you can download the Audio Book, as read by the author, also for free.

I HIGHLY recommend this website.

No "Obsession," so far. After watching "The Big Story" so far, I'm starting to regret I recommended it to a couple of liberal friends I have lol

I have the TV playing in the background and no Obsession. Somebody jumped the gun, although it would have been very powerful addendum to the speech the President just gave.

My apologies.. I should have posed that as a question.. Haven't heard it mentioned yet. They might be saving it for the last segment.. if there is no breaking news to preempt it.
