Ilan Sharon is the executive director of Minnesotans Against Terrorism. He writes to let us know that the group has arranged for one-week pre-release screenings of the film film “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against The West” in Minneapolis at the Oak Street Cinema on the east bank of the University of Minnesota campus. The screenings start tonight with weekday showings at 7:15 and 9:30 p.m., and weekend showings Saturday and Sunday at 5:15, 7:15, and 9:30 p.m.
The accompanying promotional material states:
“Obsession” was awarded Best Feature Film at the Liberty Film Festival and also received the Special Jury Award in the Houston Worldfest International Festival. It is also an official selection in the Newport Beach Film Festival. This fall it will be shown in the Great Lakes Film Festival and the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival as well.
The “Obsession” documentary uses images from Arab TV, rarely seen in the West. “Obsession” reveals an ‘insider’s view’ of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. The film also traces the parallels between the Nazi movement of World War II, the Radicals of today, and the Western world’s response to both threats. A peaceful religion is being hijacked by a dangerous foe, who seeks to destroy the shared values we stand for. The world should be very concerned.
I hope to see the film this weekend and add a brief report on the film after I have seen it.
