Product Description

An examination of Islam, violence, and the fate of the non-Muslim world.

Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public examination. Now, the question is finally being asked, "Is Islam itself violent?"

Through an examination of the Koran, other Islamic texts, and the example of the prophet Muhammad, this documentary establishes, through a sober and methodical presentation, that violence against non-Muslims is and has always been an integral aspect of Islam. "Jihad," while best translated as "struggle," as represented in the Koran and the life of Muhammad, means nothing less than organized warfare against unbelievers. Relying primarily on Islam's own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.

The documentary consists of original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, computer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts. Its tone is sober, methodical, and compelling.

Features interviews with noted experts on Islam including Robert Spencer, Serge Trifkovic, Bat Ye'or, Abdullah Al-Araby, and former terrorist Walid Shoebat.

Format: DVD
I rarely review things on Amazon, but this DVD practically inspired me to run to my computer. I've read several books and articles on Islam. I've seen a couple of documentaries. But this DVD blew me away.

The format is excellent. Throughout the video you are shown clips by world leaders, politicians, etc., who chant the "Islam as a religion of peace" mantra. Then you are shown interviews by leading authorities in the study of Islam (men and women whose credentials are unassailable). These interview clips clearly and convincingly refute what the cultural elites and media are saying. The interviews are punctuated with quotes from the Koran and Haddith. Occasionally they also show clips from Muslim sermons, rallies, etc., that are quite disturbing.

I can't imagine someone watching this DVD and not coming away convinced that Islam is inherently a political ideology akin to Communism--i.e., not a "personal religion" like us Westerners view every other religion--, with clearly distinguishable dogmas that advocate physical jihad (not "spiritual jihad against one's passions") against unbelievers, the goal of which is to usher in a global theocracy of Shariah Law.

This movie should be watched by every sober-minded Westerner. Our politicians need to wake up, study these issues, and become intellectually honest in their portrayal of Islam. We have for too long been led astray by the "Islam is a religion of peace" propaganda. It is not too late for America, though it is probably too late for Europe (which Bat Ye'or has rightly dubbed "Eurabia").

Format: DVD
Watching Islam: What the West Needs to Know without any previous knowledge of Muslims or the Koran is akin to going deep sea diving for the first time with no formal training, or, more realistically, like watching Michael Moore's Sicko without ever experiencing the American healthcare system first hand. A lot of information is thrown around and without the proper education to either agree with or dispute any of it, it all must be digested as factual. Depending on who you ask, this is the proper way to view this unbiased and revealing documentary or you are being tricked by this xenophobic and hateful piece of anti-muslim propaganda.

It's not surprising that a film whose sole purpose is to answer the question "Is Islam itself a violent religion?" with a resounding "Hell Yes!" should be just a tad controversial. Featuring interviews with several noted experts on Islam and indepth examinations of the Koran and other Islamic texts, the case against a peaceful Islam is slowly and methodically built throughout the film. Islam is presented as an intolerant and destructive ideology rather than the peaceful, yet misrepresented, religion that both Eastern and Western leaders purport it to be. "Like Nazism and Communism, in Islamism the end justifies the means... the whole idea is to promote their way of thinking and to promote their way of life throughout the world." says author and former terrorist Walid Shoebat. Candidly discussing his involvement in bombings and terroristic attacks, Shoebat provides a chilling description of life as a Muslim both in the Middle East and in the United States.

The film is split into six parts, with each part explaining a bit more about Islam. There is a section on the exclusiveness and intolerance of Islam ("There is No God But Allah...

This film (somewhat biased against Islam) teaches from the Koran and from former Muslims how Islam began and what it stands for. Americans will be surprised to find out that Islam is not only a religion, but a system of government which is focused on spreading its system throughout the whole world (which apparently belongs to Muhammad), converting people to the religion of Islam or making them second class individuals, and killing any Jews or Christians that they come accross along the way. The experts explain this from the Koran itself.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Absolutely stunning. Summarizes what an increasing number of critical scholars have been trying to tell the western public. Islam is & always has been an expansionist violence driven religion with a political agenda. That goal is dominance in the form of dar al Islam(the world of Islam) by the means of jihad. This is not new. It has been the bane of western civilization for the past 1400 years. It's regaining it's muscularity now because it can. Petro dollars & the west's preoccupation with the disasterous notion of post modern multiculturalism are the means. HOLGER BA's review is a case in point of disinformation by Islam's apologists. Any critical analysis of Islam & it's geopolitical goals allegedly represents a bias on the part of the reviewer.An approach nonsensical & foolhardy in it;s consequences. Islam is the enemy of the west & needs to be recognized as such.

Off and on since 1986, I've studied this religion and its jihad. My interest began when a client of mine, an Iranian immigrant, and a Ph. D., told me about jihad and its meaning. This production is accurate, to the point and tracks with his definiton of the word. He said this is a war in which the only winner will be the Free World or Islam. There is no middle ground. The documentary makes that clear.

Do you REALLY KNOW what you are?
I think you're absolutely correct. Most Muslims (and I assume people of other religions) follow what their parents teach them and identify it as their religion. I used to be a very devout muslim, which meant that I prayed on time and didn't do anything that was against my upbringing. I'm 22 now... Read More
