“Obsession” DVD Raises Concerns Over Propaganda

One Newspaper In North Carolina Refused To Circulate The DVD

MIAMI (CBS4) ― The documentary, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West,” a DVD distributed nationally inside certain newspapers, is being alluded to as inflammatory by Muslim groups in South Florida, showing scenes encouraging children to become suicide bombers.
  
Altaf Ali was shocked when he opened his Sunday paper and found a copy of the DVD. He is the director of the Florida Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
 
He explained to CBS4 Reporter Ileana Varela that he has gotten numerous calls from Muslims worried the DVD will promote hate and bigotry against their community.

“Obsession” had been inserted into newspapers aimed at voters in the battleground states in order to raise security concerns ahead of all other issues in the election. 

There has been no traditional distributors picking up the film, and this month, it was distributed in more than 70 newspapers across the nation, including The Miami Herald.

The Clarion Fund paid millions of dollars to get the DVD out. It’s a non-profit organization that claims to focus on national security and is listed with contact information below the credits.

The DVD release was timed to coincide with the seventh anniversary of the terrorist strikes of Sept. 11, 2001.

  1. Obsession is a nice video. You should watch it. It shouldn’t be the only thing you see. Read some books, while you’re at it.

  2. I find it interesting that nothing is disbuted in the video, just that the Muslims are worried that now that the truth is getting out about them that people might not like them as much and do something about it. That is telling

  3. Why would anyone want to stop distribution of information? Even of opinions? You’re welcome to debate it, even reject it, but prevent it? CAIR is way off base on what it’s doing to blacklist Obsession. There’s freedom of speech. I’d say there should also be freedom of information.
