CAIR-OH: DVD Distribution Upsets Muslims (Columbus Disp)


A DVD about radical Islam distributed to millions of people in swing states ahead of the election has angered many Muslims, who say the film spreads hatred and fear.
Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West was first released in 2005. This month, a one-hour preview of the movie was distributed to millions of people through direct mailings and in 70 newspapers, including The Dispatch.
The movie, produced by the Clarion Fund, a nonprofit group that pushes "national security through education," shows images of terrorist attacks and training camps. It compares radical Islam and the Nazi movement.
Asma Mobin-Uddin, president of the Ohio chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said she was angered and disappointed when she saw the DVD. She called it a hate propaganda piece.
Mobin-Uddin and other local Muslims said the film plays on the public's fear of Islam. She said the film is attacking all Muslims, not just extremists. (MORE)
