Two years ago, we wrote about “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against The West.” This awarding-winning flim uses images from Arab TV rarely seen in the West to provide an inside view of the hatred Islamic Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. It also pointed to parallels between the Islamic Radicals and the Nazi movement.
The folks who brought us “Obsession” are attempting to revive attention to the film and to the issues it raised. Their efforts are certainly timely. As Gregory Ross of the Clarion Fund, points out, recent events in Lebanon — including the hero’s welcome given Samir Kuntar, the murderer of a 4 year old girl, upon his return from an Israeli prison — confirm all too clearly the key points made in “Obsession.”
Ross also argues that our continued reliance on foreign oil, the cost of which has increased significantly since “Obsession” was made, makes the film all the more relevant. The economic leverage that this dependence provides Saudi Arabia and Iran makes it tempting not to notice the hatred being preached and subsidized there. Ross sees renewed attention to “Obsession” as a partial antidote.
