Obsession Film Distribution is Hateful Political Propaganda and Fearmongering

Tampa Radio show host and Human Rights Council President Ahmed Bedier debates the impact of the mass distribution of the anti-Muslim DVD "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" ahead of the 2008 presidential election. The film was distributed by the Clarion Fund a front organization for Israeli-based Aish HaTorah International

Great job Ahmed.....Nice to have someone like you at the forefront representing mainstream Islam....It's unfortunate that a foreign entity would spend so much money to try an influence Americans with a 28 million DVD mailout in an election year....Moderate Muslims, Christians, Jews and those of all faiths need constructive dialogue to bring us together so we can fight extremism in any form it presents itself.....

It is a shame that Ahmed Bedier was not given the chance to speak more in defense to the case he was presenting. They were constantly giving way for franco to speak. What has American Society come to exactly? We label Muslims as Terroists, yet we forget those like Hitler, Stalin and their followers who have commited even worse acts; yet they are not condemed as much as Muslims are. That dvd had no right to be sent to the public; that is considered a propoganda. Yet they want to cover it up and say it is simply an ad, who are they fooling exactly? Just like the Attorney had said, what happened to the Christian and Jew extremists? Why are they not labeled as terrorists also? They have committed more hateful and violent crimes than Muslims have and ever will.

Great job on that TV show, I found it while googling for "Obsession Aish HaTorah" after receiving a copy in the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch and two in the mail, one addressed to me, and one to my wife. If I get a fourth, I'll have a Hate Coaster Set! Apparently copies of this DVD have also been inserted in mailboxes here at Kenyon College in Knox County Ohio, where McCain is already favored, some polls show. Very discouraging. Thank you for strongly making the point that a foreign organization should not be able to hide behind the 501c3 section of the tax code and seek to influence American elections.
