Go See This Movie!

(This posting remains stuck toward the top through July 13. Scroll down for the latest postings by Always On Watch)

Right now, through July 13, Islam: What the West Needs to Know is playing in Atlanta, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. This web site gives more details.

The film opens with cries of "Allahu Akhbar!" and, after showing various world leaders proclaiming "Islam is a religion of peace," then proceeds to segments with Robert Spencer, Serge Trifkovic, Walid Shoebat, Bat Ye'or, and Abdullah Al-Araby, as each of these individuals addressed various aspects of the Islamic threat which the West today faces.

But the film does not consist merely of talking heads. Maps are included to show that the 1400-year history of Islam has been one of militant expansion, as is film footage of Muslim demonstrations in London and of a particularly strident imam in Baghdad; the latter ends his "sermon" by drawing a sword and calling for jihad against all infidels. For many in the audience, the most disturbing footage was that of children, one only twelve years old, expressing the desire to be martyrs for the cause.

Many quotations from the Koran and the Hadith are incorporated as appropriate to the specific topic under discussion in each of the six portions of the ninety-three minute film. Those interviewed explain that the Medinan verses, the most recent "revelation" of Allah, nullify the earlier, peaceful Meccan verses — a fact which Western leaders don't appear to recognize, perhaps because the Koran itself is not ordered chronologically but rather by length of chapter. In fact, the most recent "revelation" of Allah, "dictated" directly to Muhammad the Prophet by the angel Gabriel, is Sura 9 and is the one chapter of the Koran which doesn't begin with "Allah the Merciful." The instructions in Sura 9 are the most militant and the most violent in the Koran!

I found the portions in which Walid Shoebat spoke especially riveting because he himself was once a terrorist. He explained how, as a teenager, he yearned to be a martyr for Allah and indeed carried out missions. One reason that he was so eager to give his life is that, according to the teachings of Islam, dying while waging the ultimate jihad guarantees the one sure way to eternal life. Mr. Shoebat spoke about how he felt after his first bombing mission in Jerusalem and emotionally related how his conscience troubled him; toward the end of that particular portion, he mentioned that his cousins had died for the cause. "What a waste of life!" he said. Mr. Shoebat managed to hold back the tears. The audience was absolutely still and, I think, stunned.

This film was advertised as a documentary and fulfilled the requirements of that genre. The use of black and white in the poster for the film conveyed the obvious symbolism regarding good and evil, but the word evil was never mentioned during the film. Adding to the effect of the contrast between Westernism and Islamism was the director's use of black and white throughout the film, even though this movie is filmed in color. For example, each on-camera speaker sat in a black leather chair, and as the lighting played upon the back of the chair and upon the interviewees' clothing and, in some cases, eyeglasses, the symbolism could not have been clearer.

Islam: What the West Needs to Know doesn't demonize Islam, but it does uncover the whitewash which political correctness has foisted upon the West. Furthermore, the film explains why recognizing the dangers of Islam itself is of supreme importance for the survival of Western civilization. This film presents the explanation in simple and well-documented terms so that both the uninformed and the informed leave the theater in a somber mood.

When this film is released on DVD, I'll be buying my own copy.

"Another war-related documentary out this week is eminently censure-worthy, but I believe in a free country, where even deadly dull anti-Islam propaganda pieces can book a theater and try to attract an audience. "Islam: What the West Needs to Know" has one point to make: Islam is a bad, baaaaaaaaad religion, and it's a miracle you're even alive and reading this, so intent most Muslims are on your destruction.

The film comes from Quixotic Media, which "seeks to take on issues of social significance that major media will not." None of that treasonous New York Times bunk here. No, this is a different sort of bunk entirely. "What the West Needs to Know" relies on the same five talking heads parroting each other for 95 tedious minutes. One is Robert Spencer, who runs the Web site jihadwatch.org. Islam, Spencer asserts at one point, stands as the only big-league religion that "mandates violence against non-believers." Considering what has been done to whom in the name of other religions, that may well end up being the funniest line of 2006."

From this review:

The film is quietly persuasive in its arguments and if half of what these experts assert is true, the world is in for decades of bloody strife – whether through ignorance or manipulative design (one of the experts points out that terrorist acts have become the scare tactic replacement for Fascism and Communism of days gone by). This is a vision of the world that’s as terrifying as that envisioned by Christian Fundamentalists after the Rapture, their Day of Reckoning occurs. Calm and assured (though never smug), Islam: What the West Needs to Know is a poison pill of a movie with a dreadful warning. But are the filmmakers Cassandra’s, damned to predict an accurate future that no one believes or the opposite?

My unease about all of this comes not just from the fact that the first scenario is a possibility but also from the potential consequences of writing about this controversial movie that exposes that possibility in the first place. Then again, maybe that’s the best reason for the movie to be seen in the first place. Anything that can stimulate an audience into an intellectual, open and emotional discussion and get them to wrestle with such disturbing questions no matter the viewer’s belief – as this movie sure can – is worth seeing. Isn’t it?

Yep we're all going to be ROFL as Muslims try to play Conquistadors to our Inca. And as they put us all into missions to work their cotton gins, converting us from our backward savage animistic beliefs, stealing our children and destroying our culture, we will be able to have a good chuckle about how wrong Robert Spencer was.

i took the liberty awhile back of e-mailing these people to see about marketing their dvd when it comes out on the market - they said the movie will be out on dvd at the end of the year. perhaps bloggers who are interested could go to their site, e-mail them with an interest to sell this movie on their own blogs and that would surely get the ball rolling so more people could see this movie.

baby steps and it's never too early. i'll take three for whoever starts selling them first!

AOW - I am thrilled that you were able to make the showing. Wonderful review. I'm going to link this. I can hardly wait to see it and I do hope that it will come out on DVD. It is important for people to see the part that CAIR et al don't want to discuss openly. The nasty, ugly part. If it were up to Weezie and the islamofascists the debate would NEVER be allowed. Bring it all on out into the open and let's have a look.

"Those interviewed explain that the Medinan verses, the most recent "revelation" of Allah, nullify the earlier, peaceful Meccan verses"

This topic of 'abrogation' is one which needs to be given more publicity, for it demonstrates the human origin and fundamental flaws within the koran.

'Abrogation' implies that the author of the 'revelations' is
confused, inconsistent, contradictory, forgetful, illogical and possibly given to severe mood swings. Now what kind of Supreme Being is that?

Kaffirs need to learn a lot more about 'abrogation' in order to realise that the entire foundation of the cult is nothing but a record of Mohammed's bad-tempered and increasingly geriatric rants.

TMW,
Oh, I do hope that you can start such a class!

Islam: What the West Needs to Know is suitable for viewing in church, though the film is not Christian, per se.

Also, may I recommend a book which could be useful as an introduction to certain aspects of Islam? It's in essay format. See Mark Alexander's book, which is advertised at this web site. My review of Mark's book is posted at Amazon, BTW.

Jason,
Weezie's plagiarized view to the contrary, nobody in the audience moved around during the showing of the movie. In other words, nobody was bored.

The film is not flashy--no bells and whistles.

I cannot communicate how powerful the input from Walid Shoebat is! Of all the speakers at the symposium I attended, he might well have been the best. His orientation is Christian, of course (At the symposium, he started out by saying, "I was born in Bethlehem of Judea. No. I'm not the one"), but he has insights which others cannot bring because he was once a PLO terrorist. According to what Shoebat said in the film, recruitment for jihadists has been going on here in the States since the early '80s. The film was made prior to the recent arrests regarding the Holland Tunnel, and now his words have even more impact.

Check your site meter. If you have a hit from Finland Weezie is the infamous weasel. Weasie is the nickname I gave him but where Mr J and Lionel are is unknown. I wouldn't mind seeing a post from Mr Bentley either.

I understand the focus of the film but we are missing the broader historical implications. Islam is a colonial pathology with a 1400 year record of human rights abuses only exceeded by the Sons of Marx.

We will have to deal with the Marxist enablers. However the internet does make media malfeasence of the Vietnam era difficult.

ROP,
The film was very clear as to abrogation. Now, what kind of God keeps changing His mind?

Some in the audience reacted strongly to the portion about abrogation. I heard a few gasps of surprise when the verse supporting the abrogation of certain verses was cited. Now, I have to wonder if Western leaders have heard about this?

I agree, and that topic came up at the Symposium (Horowitz was there, after all), but one cannot cover so much in just 93 minutes.

From this source:

Before you go searching your Old Testament, please note: passages seeming to call for violence against localized groups in particular circumstances, and which have been understood in a spiritualized way for over two or three thousand years, are not exact analogies to the open-ended calls for literal warfare against unbelievers found in the Qur'an (cf. 9:29, 8:39, 3:121-126, 9:5, etc. etc. etc.).

Note also that to say that only Islam mandates violence against non-believers is not to say that people of other religions have never been violent...

 
At 7/10/2006 10:29 AM, Blogger Jason_Pappas said...

Spencer is eloquent and precise. Despite the reviewer taking Spencer's line out of context, I could still tell by the exact words that only Islam fit the bill. Of course, the reviewer's mistake and smug attitude only shows the reviewer’s ignorance and superficial thinking. Spencer's retort clearly shows the nuance that comes from an in-depth study. It’s worthwhile for everyone to read Spencer’s response (and I’m glad you gave us a sample and linked to it) as it shows how to prepare for and defend the truth in a calm manner that shows who really understands the subject.

Having seen Robert Spencer in person, I can vouch for the fact that he doesn't rant and rave. He presents well-sourced information, using words and references from the Koran and the Hadith. The man is difficult to argue against.

Film might have some merit. Noticed it opened on three Landmark screens. They are about the only largescale indie house left. My guess is that this is a test drive and it they can get some box office they'll hit a few more screens.

Landmark does have nation wide coverage. I suspect it won't draw that well but it is being given a fair shot with those venues.

Duck,
I went to the first matinee on a Sunday. The theater seats about 150, and 20 people were present. When the noon matinee released, several people were waiting to gain admittance even though at least 20 minutes remained before the 2:00 showing.

The theater was downtown in the tourist district, with little available parking. Still, a classy building, with some local history, I think. The biggest close-by draws are Ford's Theatre and The House Where Lincoln Died. I fought temptation and skipped going to Gifford's, which has the best ice-cream in the D.C. area.

The only criticism I would have is the movie will be largely preaching to the choir. It's up to us to spread the word, buy the DVD and get someone to watch it, call the cable networks and write the editors. There's a long way to go before we smash the lie of kitman or taqiyya.

Not to bring to much adulation to him, but, do you have any idea how many innocent people Dr. Cheesecutter Guevara had executed as Castro's stooge??

Any idea how poor a Dr. he actually was?

Any idea how he begged and screamed and cried like a little girl when justice finally caught him in the jungles where he and friends had been murdering defenseless natives for years???

Yeah bubbah, you should be REEEAL proud of that picture seeing as how a chickensh*t basic MORON like you would never have the guts do do ANYTHING dangerous to support their misbegotten beliefs!!!!

I had emailed the producers, exploring the idea of getting a print and renting some local theater space. They may have misunderstood my intent, but were nevertheless, unreceptive. This may yet be possible when they decide to release it to wider audiences.

After, seeing it Friday, I fully expected to be surveyed by the producers, as it seemed still a little rough in terms of production. The information is great, though perhaps a little too low key for the disinterested or even the choir that wished they'd been harder hitting.

Even with these slight critisms in mind, this film does have an audience.

In a low key manner, the right questions are raised.

You are correct AOW, about Walid Shoebat, He seems to be one of only two talented orators among these otherwise learned men and women featured in the film. Serge Trofovic would be the other, though his is a less expressive style than Shoebat's.

At 7/11/2006 7:39 AM, Blogger Always On Watch said...

Maccus Germanis,
I'm glad that you stopped by here to comment on the film, especially because you, too, have seen it.

I've seen Shoebat in person. He has charisma and is a very animated speaker. Perhaps because his orientation is evangelical? I found him more subdued on film, and I suspect that the demeanor I saw was deliberate on his part. Also, he was sitting down, which can also have an effect.

I mentioned this in an earlier comment: When I saw Shoebat in person at the Symposium, he started out by saying, "I was born in Bethlehem of Judea. No, I'm not the one." That opening was the only humor in what he had to say.

I agree with your statement about Trifkovic, author of The Sword of the Prophet. Never having seen him speak, I was impressed.

The information is great, though perhaps a little too low key for the disinterested or even the choir that wished they'd been harder hitting.

I suspect that the low-key approach is deliberate, in part to provide a contrast with the footage from Islamic demonstrations and Islamic speakers. One certainly cannot accuse Shoebat, Spencer, Bat Ye'or, Trifkovic, and Al-Araby of spouting hate as none of them were strident in what they had to say. The movie could have been harder hitting, but might have crossed a line resulting in no theater's showing the film. I read at Jihad Watch that the movie was originally scheduled to be aired in NYC but that the theater later refused. Hmmmm....

 
At 7/11/2006 7:45 AM, Blogger Always On Watch said...

Florian,
Most sections of D.C. are rough at night and parking downtown is always difficult. Therefore, I went to the Sunday matinee. In fact, my husband dropped me off and picked me up. Too bad that my husband didn't get to watch this movie! Had he seen it, he would better understand my focus on the computer these days.

Had the movie been playing in a rougher area of D.C., I might not have gone at all!

I checked the lobby of the theater to see if any materials were available--a DVD (I didn't really expect one), a book, additional information. Nothing.

BTW, two college students were present in the audience. They were frantically taking notes. Just guessing here...Asian Indians? I noted that they stayed for the second showing. Perhaps they had an assignment to complete.

It would be interesting to find out if and how many theaters refused to air the film.

I've emailed the producers. At first, I got an automated response. But when I pointed out my review, the producers read it and got back to me. I'm hoping that I'm now on their mailing list.

Another venue for this movie would be churches. Although the film is not Christian per se, it could be effectively shown to Christians who believe that Islam is "just another religion."

Movies like this tend to be easily dismissed as paranoia by the Left, who in turn will push propaganda that the US is turning into a fascist police state and last year's hurricane in NO was a part of an evil plot to wage war against minorities.

Yet no religion in modern times has such a world-wide mechanism for religious war like Jihad.

Anyone that harbors any doubt about the negative role that Jihad plays against civilization should listen to Shoebat speak.

The tone of the movie isn't one of paranoia, but rather one of reasoned discussion supported by facts and citations from the Koran and the Hadith. No ranting whatsoever.

As a member of the 'choir', I plan on seeing this film when it comes closer to my neck of the woods, preferably at home with my family on DVD or cable.

The severe limitation on venues for this type of documentary is vexing. An anti-jihad cable network station needs to be developed and encouraged. Though my skills are limited to raising my kids and running a household - I'd gladly volunteer my time and effort to secure that effort.

Ducky,
Leviticus is filled with all kinds of laws, many of which were for the Levites, the priesthood of the Israelites. As far as I know, many of the laws to which I'm guessing you're tacitly referring are not codified in any nation's governing laws. Islamic laws, however, also often apply to polity. Also, the Koran newest portions are the most militant--a stark contrast with the differences between the Old and New Testaments in the Christian Bible.

As far as regards the application of certain laws of the Old Testament, the protitiation through the sacrifice of Jesus has freed us from the law--as Nanc mentioned. We are now under the bounds of grace as opposed to the bonds of laws because Jesus came to fulfill those laws, many of which were types (special symbols).

Today, most Christians no longer observe any of the Old Testament's dietary laws. I'm sure your familiar with Peter's dream about the clean and unclean animals in the Book of Acts. There is nothing comparative in Islam.

The Duck is refering to a small chapter that regulates sexual behavior. However, Duncy seems to carefully forget that Jews do not attempt to place Talmudic law on others.

This is yet another example where Ducky talks out of his backside again. This is to be expected by a man who advocates the teachings of a racist genocidal philosopher whose followers have caused more misery then any other group in the planets history. This evil continues to this day. Do not expect logic from a person who seeks to DeMarxify Killing Fields, Gulags, Imperialism, Class Genocide, Etnic Deportations and planned starvations. A person with such a track record should be real concerned about the writings in Leviticus.

Mr. Suck should read more and be bored less. Based on interpretations of the Quran by important Imams, the sexual activities of compliant Muslims are rather interesting.

One of the more recent decisions I ran across is that a Man may have a "Wife" in another city so that he is not without sex when he visits there!!! Apparently sodomy is also OK between a man and wife.

(don't get excited now Mr. Sucky, real Christians and Jews still think it is a sin!! Probably why LEFTIES hate them so much!!)

Yes, the provision for the temporary wife. When MTP or the clamoring tribes wanted something, Allah would provide a new rule. Very convenient, huh?

I believe that this web site has details about some of Islam's "peculiarities." For example, this article has information about honor killings, as well as some internal links to other "peculiarities," including information about MTP's child-bride.

Happy to oblige.

Here is an excerpt from Yahoo! news, about two hours ago:

...The latest attack on the transit system of a major city -- after the 2004 Madrid train bombing and last July's London Underground attacks -- was "well-coordinated and well-planned" and backed by a "big power", anti-terror squad head K.P. Raghuvanshi told Indian television, without elaborating.

Local papers said police were probing links between the Students' Islamic Movement of India and Lashkar-e-Taiba, or Army of the Pious.

Two leading militant outfits denied involvement.

Lashkar spokesman Abdullah Ghaznavi told AFP that his group was not involved and in Pakistan Hizbul Mujahedin, a leading umbrella group of guerrilla outfits, issued a similar denial.

But Bharat Karnad, analyst at the New Delhi-based Centre for Policy Research, said: "It's fairly certain this is the result of the The latest attack on the transit system of a major city -- after the 2004 Madrid train bombing and last July's London Underground attacks -- was "well-coordinated and well-planned" and backed by a "big power", anti-terror squad head K.P.

The invesigation is still proceeding.

And here is a long article from Reuters, and it cites a terrorism expert who is not of Asian Indian extraction.

Make of the articles what you will, but they are hardly Freeper sources.

Ducky wants proof? Of course leftists always ask “how do you know it was Muslims?” One could point out that leftist terrorists, like the Weatherman, don’t exist anymore so who else could it be? They know someday some crazed person who is not Muslim will set of a bomb. But the odds are so low that one can safely assume it was an Islamic group and correct oneself on those few occasions when it isn’t.

But when that days comes, leftists will single out the one exception as if it overrides the other 1000 we’ve seen in the last few years (listed on the www.religionofpeace.com). I still laugh at leftists who post on yahoo.com and elsewhere when they punctuate every Islamic attack with the question: “How about McVeigh?” The vast majority of Muslims support bin Laden and almost no one supports McVeigh, yet leftists believe they’ve found all the proof they need in that lone example. For a leftist such crumbs are a meal that they will try to milk for years. At least the Duckman hasn’t pulled that one.

Yes, and also this (emphasis mine):

Correspondents say the government has publicly adopted a cautious approach, saying only that "terrorists" are to blame.

If there is intelligence tying any Islamic group(s) to the bombings yesterday, that intelligence operation must not be jeopardized. One of the links I left here earlier mentions something about an intelligence report.

In short, nothing is yet definitive with regard to the attacks yesterday in India. But previous precedents leave plenty of reason to make some guesses.

The tone of comments is not the same as featured blog-posts, as you know. A more informal forum, if you will.

Maybe my memory is faulty, but wasn't the same caution observed immediately following 9/11?

I just have to make another observation...

If Muslims did not carry out the recent terrorist attack in India, would this not merely be an exception to the rule?

Well MR Sucky Ducky whined,

"May I ask our memri quoter "anonymous" how he feels about the Israeli Apartheid Regime bombing seven children yesterday. I'm sure it was justified."

Since I am unaware that there IS an Israeli Apartheid Regime, it is a little difficult to answer.

Now, if I look into the Palis controlled areas of the ME I see that Jews have been completely purged. I see Christians and other minority groups leaving under terrorist treatment. I see that they are not allowed the same rights as the Muslims and Hamas and others claim they plan to implement Sharia, which happens to be a particularly vicious form of Apartheid.

All I can say to answer you is that if the Palis killed 7 children it is despicable whoever they belonged to.

The other half of your half brain, John Brown Stain, wanted to know what I thought about the 5 children killed in the attack on a Hamas terrorists home. I told him terrorists shouldn't keep their families close to them if they don't want them executed with them.

Of course, you glory in cowardly Imams and Arab leaders sending propagandised suicide bombers to kill nothing but INNOCENT people INCLUDING BABIES. No question at all that they were attempting to kill people taking action against their terrorist activities.

Sorry, your illogical equation of terrorists murdering innocents with rightous protection of Homeland simply shows that either I am wrong about you having even 1/4 a brain, or you are simply a lying piece of dirt that tries to cast doubt.

I really think you have about 1/4 of a brain so that means you are simply a lying piece of dirt who likes to try and cause trouble.

Spamming also includes posting vulgar or viscious messages over and over for the purpose of harrassing the forum moderator, for no purpose other than being harrassing and derailing interaction for everyone.

Given the leftist historical tradition of never having anything particularly enlightening to say, coupled with the intrinsic leftist calling to convince all audiences that leftists are, each and every single one of them, all blithering idiots, spamming is a natural tool.

Mr. Beamish,
There certainly has been harassment and probably some derailing as well. Having to use comment moderation cuts down on interaction and forces the blogmaster/blogmistress to babysit one's own blog.

Brooke,
Maybe. When I saw him wearing the shirt, his mother wasn't around.

Parents have to choose their battles, of course. All in all, this kid is a good one. Of course, he has yet to complete his high-school years, which are fraught with all sorts of dangerous temptations.

I once asked him, "Why are you wearing that [Che] shirt?"

He said, "Because he was a guy who stood up for what he believed in."

Nanc,
Funny that you should say that! I told my student the same thing. :)

Why do some human beings insist on an earthly utopia? Utopias are miserable failures!

utopias sound fine until you start looking for someONE to run one!

I've got a red Che-style t-shirt that actually has the face of Bruce Lee on it.

Mr Beamish,
Spamming also includes posting vulgar or viscious messages over and over for the purpose of harrassing the forum moderator, for no purpose other than being harrassing and derailing interaction for everyone.

Agreed fully.
And ..isn't 'leftism's ' vulgarity atracting vulgar people into it's ranks?
Isn't 'leftism' all about intimidation and terror?

Just behind the 'help the underdog' facade there is nothing else but horror, control freaks, and mass murder.

Nanc,
If you and Warner, ever feel like jumping on board with DF - just drop me a word. ;-)

Missing Link,
More of your kind offer? We might crowd you out. (not really)

So spake Robespierre, father of leftism.

AOW,

I wouldn't mind at all to get somwhat more organized.
I wouldn't at all.
The more of US the merrier.

One of my former piano students, a middle-schooler, proudly wore his Che shirt. He also had a Hugo Chavez shirt. The kicker here is that his mother is an uppity-up at the CIA, and she allows him to wear those shirts.

Can you imagine one of the Bush daughters wearing one? Wonder what kind of news that would make in the mainstream and in the blogosphere.

I've got a red Che-style t-shirt that actually has the face of Bruce Lee on it.

I actually made a video with an autistic boy who has one on at the beginning of the video

Wordsmith,
How about that? A shirt like Beamish's.

The Bush daughters occasionally appear in the gossip-column of the WaPo. Pretty dull stuff, though.

GOOD READ, EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THESE

Shalom!

I, too, am interested in the film. Walid Shoebat is in a nearby town speaking today. I really wanted to hear him, but, my schedule doesn't allow.

Thank you so much for the information! The movie "Relentless" was good, but this one sounds even more insightful.

Oh, "wordsmithfromnantucket"...(smile) I have a teen with PDD (autism) - thanks for including someone in your video!

It's on DVD now at Amazon.

Anonymous,
Yes, the film is now available on DVD and well worth the small fee to purchase it. Would that major TV networks would air Islam: What the West Needs to Know.
