Editorial Reviews

Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center" and its companion documentary, "Muslims Against Jihad," tell the story of courageous anti-Islamist Muslims in Western Europe, Canada and the United States and the extraordinary challenges they face in taking on adherents to the theo-totalitarian ideology known as Islamism. What is happening to these moderates – who are being ostracized, bankrupted, intimidated and in some cases, threatened with death – offers critical insights into the dangers that both they and non-Muslims are facing. These films by acclaimed Director/Producer Martyn Burke also suggest steps that can and must be taken to help empower the anti-Islamist Muslims in the struggle for their faith.

I was about to give this dvd one star, but I thought hell, there is no reason to. Muslims feel threatened when they think their religion is being maligned, but there is nothing wrong with talking about the truth and I feel that this video does that. As a Muslim, I know that there is a need for a gut check for all Muslims in the world. This dvd will help you know what kind of insanity is happening in it. It shows us a lot of stuff about the dark side of Islam and how moderate Muslims are trying to fight the good fight. The only problem is that the dark side has some elements within it which are from the foundation of the religion of Islam. Islamism, which is defined as the belief that Islam should guide social and political as well as personal life, is seen as something evil. It is only evil when those who are trying to enforce it with criminal activity. Someone in the video said it perfectly when he gave us the example of someone who was rich and lost all his money. When that person went by his old house, someone saw him and told him he could get him back into that house, but he will have to break some laws or do some illegal things. And that is how Muslims have been thinking for the last 20 or so odd years. They want justice to prevail and they want to be guided by the moral principles of Islam, but they want to commit violence to achieve those ends.

Jihad is also portrayed as having a negative connotation. We dont think negatively when we think of self-defense, but jihad and self-defense are almost exactly the same. Jihad comes from the word Jahada, which means strive in Arabic. Muslims are to strive against evil, both inwardly and outwardly and sometimes that outward struggle requires force or fighting.

While interviewing Muslims who live in France, United States and Denmark; the viewer hears both sides of the story:
1- Muslims, who are proud of their faith, live in a democratic society and participate in building the society, while keeping their faith and spirituality. Imams, doctors, singers, journalists, and politicians are standing up to defend Islam and their newly chosen society against fundamentalists who are on a mission to destroy everybody else.
2- Extreme individuals, who claim to be real Muslims, moved to democratic countries that respect freedom of faith and speech, and used this granted freedom to try to replace these societies with a dictatorship, which these fundamentalists claim to be the word of Allah.

There is no religion that asks people to kill others, and this documentary reveals both sides of the story without bias and allows the viewers to explore the facts. One important fact reveals that Saudi Arabia funds these extremists, who belong to the fundamentalist Wahabi sect. They were sent out of Saudi Arabia to proselytize in other countries and funded with billions of dollars. Saudi Arabia guarantees peace to itself and destruction to others while still pretending to be a friendly country.

The simple and reasonable questions asked by the first group of Muslims are:
If extremists want an Islamic government, why move to a democratic country and trying to convert it? Why not going to Saudi or Iran?

By referring to the Quran and the real teachings of Islam, the first group proves that radical Islamists not Islam are the problem.

The only answers that extremists offer are death threats against everybody who disagrees with them.
