Documentary Portrays Islamic Extremists' Call to Arms Against the Free World
Fox News ^ | 1 November 06 | Fox News

Posted on 11/02/2006 2:59:23 PM PST by LSUfan

According to a shocking new documentary called “Obsession,” the free world is still unprepared to face the unwavering commitment of those who have pledged their lives to our destruction. The film states that we suffer not so much from complacency, but from the naïve disbelief that we remain targets of thousands, perhaps millions of radical Muslims around the world.

How determined to kill you is radical Islam? This weekend, FOX News Channel examines the full scope of the threat to the United States, with the help of documentarian Wayne Kopping. This hour-long program exposes the stunning and explicit threats made against the West made by Islamic leaders. It features interviews with former terrorists, shocking Islamic news video never before broadcast in America, and undercover footage taken inside suicide bomber initiations and secret jihadist meetings.

The special will air Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET, and will be repeated Sunday at 1 a.m. ET, 5 a.m. ET and 10 p.m. ET.

Yippie!! Thanks for posting this info! I started to buy it a few months ago, but didn't really want to spend the money at the time!

This is great that it will air before the election. America needs to understand what we are truly up against!

Probably too late to affect the Nov. 7 election in which this country will place in power the Islamofacists' best allies in the west, namely leftscum.

I'm starting to think that the West, even America, is just too damn infested with leftscum leeches and idiots to survive the challenge...

I saw this movie pre-release. You will be shocked. If you have any doubts about what the intention of Islam is, you won't after you watch this movie.

America needs to understand what we are truly up against! Most Americans do understand that the Peaceful Religion of Islam has one aim - to kill all who disagree with them. It is the Democrats who fail to understand the peril - or if they do they won't mind a a little terrorism here and a little terrorism there as long as they can cut and run from Iraq. Democrats will simply appease terrorists; reduce the military; scuttle Home Land Security and keep the money for their agendas of Social Engineering. Keep America safe and free by voting Republican in all the races. Democrats have no solutions other than talktalktalktalktalk. They are self defeating and dangerous to the country.

Their goals are:

1. Subvert Iraq
2. Subvert/pressure Turkey into alliance.
3. Subvert the eastern Saudis
4. Attack the strait region, the Saudi peninsula and control it.
5. Attack the US from inside (bombs, hostages) and economic (oil control).

Any info as to which edit of the film this is? Is this the full length feature or the edited version?

I ask this because I saw it screened at a film festival earlier this year (and the director was in attendence). On the movie's website, they were still seeking a distributor but were offering an edited version (withholding some content for the full feature release which would actually be expanded with supplements).

I didn't know if they'd found the distribution deal they'd been seeking. I hope they keep at it and make another film (and that they make enough from this project to finance the next).

They even located film footage (not just photo stills) of Adolph Hitler with Arafat's uncle.

The Democrats know that they can always rely on the military which they loath to fall back on.

Also the left is oblivious to the fact that many of their numbers who have "alternative lifestyles" or unusual appearance and attitude would be the first to be eliminated by radical Islam. Atheists, gays, punks, secular intellectuals...all sword meat.

I saw this film with a Q&A afterwards. There was a leftist in the crowd who'd applauded with the Islamic rapper called Bush "Satan" repeatedly (this was the Dirty Kufir video in which he laughs as the footage of the plane hitting the WTC is shown). He also applauded and nodded his head when Michael Moore was shown in a clip insisting that there was no global threat of terrorism.

He refused to "see". Instead in the Q&A he said how Israel was "wrong" again and again. He also asked why Noam Chomsky wasn't given a chance to offer a different perspective (like conservatives get to counter the Leftist documentaries from within???). Needless to say he got booed and hissed (and I recognize him as a Pacifica Radio loving liberal) and the others in the audience hadn't even seen/heard him cheering on the jihadist rapper.

They are more anti-conservative than they are pro-Western World. I'm reminded of how the American Communists opposed war against socialist Nazi Germany until Hitler betrayed Stalin.

"I am afraid this will only be "Preaching to the choir"."

Well, if you are right...even the 'choir' sometimes need to practice....if you know what I mean.

We too, sometimes get wrapped up in the political ping pong of the day and forget why we entered the 'game' in the first place.

This special will be a timely reminder of what is at stake if our country is lulled back to sleep by the liberals of this world.

If that were only the extent of their intent it wouldn't be
so bad, but mark my words, if they should manage to come to power, the full might of the state will be brought to bear in the name of "Fighting Terrorism", but the target will be
all opposition to their political rule!!!

The choir needs to be sung to. Maybe this will wake up Repub voters who want to teach the Repub a lesson and let them lose.

Have you noticed that the media never reports anymore what the enemy is actually saying in their 'propaganda releases'?

Everytime Al Zawahiri or Al queda, et al release a tape, we have to going looking far and wide for accurate translations in full. We normally can not find full translation at any of the MSM outlets and they certainly don't report them in full.

The media loves to say thay they are not 'airing it in it's entirety because there may be coded messeges..blahblahblah'.....

THAT'S NOT WHY THEY DON'T AIR IT!! THEY DON'T WANT AMERICA TO HEAR IT, BECAUSE IT HURTS THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT CAUSE!!

You have that exactly right. Then when they suffer under terrorism they will wonder how that could have happened.All Socialism does is spread the misery.

The liberal response in order:

1. It's on Fox and we all know they are liars.

2. How do I know the translations are accurate.

3. This is totally taken out of context.

4. They are just trying to scare people into voting Republican.

5. We need to understand what we have done to make these people hate us.

6. Whatever, pass the bong dude......

FOX News rearranging weekend line-up to air terror film, scare jaded voters to polls

Reported by Chrish - November 2, 2006 - 147 comments

FOX News Channel has announced that it will air "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West,"

"(a) frightening new documentary by filmmaker Wayne Kopping ....

What he found, is something FOX News believes every American should know."

The film, which is actually a year old, will be shown four (4) times this weekend to help Republicans scare their base to the polls. Along with plenty of footage accusing Democrats of not getting it (an O'Reilly favorite) and Dick Morris' sickening new anti-Democrat smear commercial, FOX is pulling out all the stops to support their party.

Another article at FOXNews.com says that

"We often hear that 9/11 was a wake-up call for Americans. But have Americans really woken up to the truth of how much radical Islamists want us dead, and the lengths to which they are willing to go to fulfill their mission?

According to a shocking new (sic) documentary called “Obsession,” the free world is still unprepared to face the unwavering commitment of those who have pledged their lives to our destruction. The film states that we suffer not so much from complacency, but from the naïve disbelief that we remain targets of thousands, perhaps millions of radical Muslims around the world."

In other words, we're not scared enough (yet) to turn over ALL our rights to the executive branch. Maybe this'll do it - it's worth a shot, right?

From Libertas, "a forum for conservative thought on film":


"We’ve just received word that this weekend Fox News will be presenting a 40 minute version of the film Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West that had its World Premiere at the 2005 Liberty Film Festival.

Obsession was the Best Feature Film winner from last year’s festival, and will be playing on Fox News Saturday Nov. 4th at 8pm/1am/5am, and Sunday Nov. 5th at 10pm.

We’re told these will be Fox News special TV broadcasts, i.e., they redid their lineups to make this happen, and that they will be advertising the show on TV commercials in advance. Following the film will be an interview with director Wayne Kopping."

We’re extremely proud to have done the World Premiere of Obsession, and we’re thrilled that Fox News will be re-arranging its line-up - right at the height of election season - to air this important film. The purpose of The Liberty Film Festival is to discover such films and bring them to the public.

Clearly this is intended to reach the voters who still think that the Bush administration can keep us safer than Democrats and who conflate the war in Iraq with the so-called war on terror. This blatant electioneering by a so-called news channel erases for once and for all any pretense that FOX is fair or balanced - it is right-wing propaganda and nothing more.

Let FOX know what you think of their blatant Republican campaigning at:

Thanks to g-mailer Matt for the heads-up.

The Return of the Good Guys

By Judi McLeod

Wednesday, November 1, 2006

Saturday afternoon at the movies. Watching the silver-badged sheriff booting the bad guys out of Dodge while munching on real-butter popcorn and savoring your once-a-week Tootsie Roll.

Back in those days, the bad guy may as well have worn a shirt emblazoned with the word `Skunk!'. At the Saturday matinee, there was no need for second guessing, no political points, no propaganda and GI Joe was the undisputed hero.

Remember?

If only you could go back to the good days when American bashing would have got you popcorn boxes thrown at the silver screen.

You can go back, thanks to the passion of David Horowitz, President & Founder of the Horowitz Freedom Center, true patriot of The Liberty Film Festival...
