Islam: What the West Needs to Know
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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.

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").

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...Read more ›
