Posted on 10/26/2008 7:24:56 AM PDT by 3AngelaD
A New York-based organization has sent copies of a movie about Islamist extremism to more than 28 million houses and religious institutions in presidential election battleground states over the past several weeks...
Members of several Muslim groups have condemned the film, saying that it is inflammatory and that it could incite violence against them.
"It's a mind-boggling massive campaign. When you send material like this almost exclusively to presidential swing states that sends a message that you are trying to influence the election," said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. "It's inappropriate as a nonprofit for the Clarion Fund to do...."

I don’t think it’s targeted at battleground states. My realtives in California got it,too.
Insulting=inciting, need more coffee...
I watched it last night and it lays bare the fact that we are in a all-out war, where one side, the radical, jihadists want to destroy our way of life, civilization, freedom, and as many of us as they can.
...and they are planning just that and are in it for the long term unless we stop them.
All Americans should see this film which is what the producers are attempting.
When they do, the absolute majority will then weigh very carefully who they vote for.
I downloaded it from a P2P site myself....
I think it needs to be said that those who object to this film are the ones who are anti muslim.
Islamic radicals kill more muslims than any other force or power in the world today. Islamic radicals have proven they are willing to kill any subgroup of muslims in order to hold power over others.
The refusal to speak honestly about their fascism is anti muslim.
Is today "Opposite Day" or something? It's the rest of the world that has to worry about Muslims committing violent acts against anyone who isn't Muslim, not the other way around.
Did they do this by sending the DVD in the mail?
I have often thought of how a candidate could get around the lame-stream-media and without giving away my ideas, this comes close. Very interesting tactic....
That give me hope, I may find one in my mail in AL when I get home from Sweden in time to vote.
Perfect comparison! Have seen Obsession and it scares me. I wish it was mandatory for every American. It in no way damns all Muslim—ones who hate the radical Islam are speaking in it!
“When you send material like this almost exclusively to presidential swing states that sends a message that you are trying to influence the election”
Gosh! that’s terrible! /S
Mrs. Slim got a copy. Being unfamiliar with it she aksed if we whould watch it with dinner. I told her that might not be the best idea.
I’ve seen the DVD (sent to one of my “kids”) and really got nothing new from it.
You know, I can’t stand Obama either but I don’t get the people who constantly show pictures of him in native costume.
It doesn’t make any sense to me.
McCain is of Scottish ancestry, so, should we constantly show pictures of him wearing a kilt?
When president Bush went to China, he dressed in a traditional Chinese costume. Does that mean he’s a Chinese communist now?
LOL! I wonder what clued them in on such an insightful observation?
Believing in nonviolent moderate Muslims is not a popular belief I. These parts, FRiend
Does that mean hes a Chinese communist now?
He seems to agree with them more than he does with conservatives.
Trying to influence the election?
Like the biased reporting favoring ‘Ohno’ in the news media?
Muslims are talking about something being inappropriate??? Surely the masters of human butchery jest!
Yes, it comes in a mailer that leaves no doubt what it is. We got one a couple weeks ago and I was thrilled.
No kidding! What was his first clue?
But then he lies about it and says he had no involvement. The fact that he is dishonest and disengenousous about something so intrinsic to his make-up is a major concern.
When you add that to the fact that we are in a death strugle with Islamic Jihad, the concerns are all the more disconcerting.
You may not think it fair, but in World War II this country would never have considered electing a President who was schooled in Nazi Germany, a part of the Nazi youth, and who would then lie about that background. Sometimes common sense must over-ride emotional notions of fair play...particularly when you are being bamboozled.
Seems like it is saying, "this is a threat to the very existence of western civilization. Keep that in mind when you go to the polls."
I think it is a fine thing for a group to educate the voters like this. I don't know why CAIR has a problem with this unless they are on the side wanting to destroy western civilization.
Bush wearing a Chinese costume /garb is insulting to Americans since Bush is NOT Chinese.I expect my President to be above playing "dress-up".Why should anyone demand or desire their guest to wear clothing not usual in his own culture,unless said clothing is part of some sport ?
This from someone on FR for six months.
How long do I need to keep my mouth shut? How long before I am part of the community? I’ll pass on having you pass judgment on my credentials.
You are part of the community. I am not telling you to be quiet. I get your point.
I am just ribbing you a bit about your youthful credentials.
You are certainly welcome to be at FR. I am aware of the various dispositions about Islam. I want to state my opinion as well.
I hope you continue to post on FR.
Thanks. I was not condoning or condemning your stance, btw...just noting that it wasn’t the popular view. I personally don’t know enough (ok any) muslims so I don’t have an authoritative view on this. I do know that if I were Muslim popular opinion about my religion would be very disheartening.
Fair enough. I was probably being a bit too cheeky.
Yes, they believe the New York group’s members should be beheaded as a response to their portrayal of the violence of such a dominant part of Islam.
I got one too but have not seen it. I figured there really wasn’t anything new for me....they’re animals that need to be exterminated..’nuff said.
If McCain dressed in a kilt during a visit to Scotland, so what?
But if Obama proudly dresses in Muslim garb during a visit to Kenya, campaigns for his Communist/Muslim/terrorist brother, gives him a million dollars to help him in his church-burning activities, and then instructs the press never to show that picture again and never again to use his middle name, then that means something. People ought to see that picture.
If McCain were to visit Ireland and put on the costume of the IRA, that would be a bit more equivalent to what Obama was up to. Although frankly the IRA these days, since the truce, looks pretty pale next to Islamic terrorists.
Sorry, not brother, cousin.
When you send material like this almost exclusively to presidential swing states that sends a message that you are trying to influence the election,” said Ibrahim Hooper, YEAH LIKE ACORN DOES!
I know enough Islamic history and practices to know it is a dangerous religion/political/world domination group of people.
If you have any doubts, read the several articles about what they are up to in the UK. They demanded and HAVE BEEN GIVEN the right to “rule their own” via Sharia courts. What is going to happen to the women and children there? It’s a nightmare. The UK is down the tubes unless and until there’s a reversal of the sick multi-cultural PC surrender to Islam.
I wish I had a copy. My state isn’t a swing state, it’s a lost cause state.... :-(
I live in a red county in a sicko liberal state. Rural versus Portland and Eugene.
The DVD is about $12 and worth twice the price very scare and we can recognize it all around us!
