After the last post, one of my Canadian readers emailed to say that she did not understand the hate. I replied that the Muslim fanatics dearly want to kill us all, Americans, Canadians, Europeans, Indians, Russians ... Read their words. It would not surprise me if their next massive attack occurred in Paris or Toronto or Tokyo, because another attack on America will result in Armageddon in the Muslim Middle East.

Yet there are many in America who do not or refuse to comprehend the threat. To those I recommend the documentary movie Obsession that will be aired on the Fox News Channel tonight at 8 p.m. PST and then again at 1:00 a.m.

From the Obsession web site is the following description of the movie.

Almost 70 years ago, Europe found itself at war with one of the most sinister figures in modern history: Adolf Hitler. When the last bullet of World War II was fired, over 50 million people were dead, and countless countries were both physically and economically devastated. Hitler’s bloody struggle sought to forge the world anew, in the crucible of Nazi values. How could such a disaster occur? How could the West have overlooked the evil staring it in the face, for so long, before standing forcefully against it? Today, we find ourselves confronted by a new enemy, also engaged in a violent struggle to transform our world. As we sleep in the comfort of our homes, a new evil rises against us. A new menace is threatening with all the means at its disposal to bow Western Civilization under the yoke of its values. That enemy is Radical Islam. Using images from Arab TV, rarely seen in the West, Obsession reveals an ‘insider's view' of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. With the help of experts, including first-hand accounts from a former PLO terrorist, a Nazi youth commander, and the daughter of a martyred guerilla leader, the film shows, clearly, that the threat is real. A peaceful religion is being hijacked by a dangerous foe, who seeks to destroy the shared values we stand for. The world should be very concerned.

On the Obsession web site check out the terror time line starting in 1977

Many who I respect a lot have praised the movie:

Obsession is one of the most powerful, expertly crafted and undeniably important films I've seen this year. This courageous, utterly gripping expose' deserves the attention of every American -- and merits serious consideration for the Academy Award for Best Feature Length Documentary.
Michael Medved

Obsession is both scary and riveting! Each and every one of us should feel obligated to show Obsession to as many people as we can. Obsession should serve as a wake-up call to the free world to confront the threat now, before it is too late."
Joel Surnow, Executive Producer “24”

Obsession demonstrates in the clearest possible terms that we must stand up and defend our way of life.
Mary Matalin, Former Assistant to the President

Viewing this documentary should hereafter be considered a prerequisite for participating in the debate about the national security challenges we face, and what must be done to address them.
Frank J. Gaffney Jr., Center for Security Policy

Obsession tells it like it is---or rather, allows the radical jihadists to tell it like it is without Western media editing. Anyone watching this film can conclude that Islamic terrorism is the main threat of our day...
Larry Schweikart, Professor of History, University of Dayton

The root of virtually all evil is lies. If the Germans were not told lies, there would not have been a Holocaust. The Islamic world is today also steeped in lies about the West. And that is the major source of the evils emanating from that world. Now, finally, thanks to Obsession , the West can see and hear those lies.
Dennis Prager

Dear friend Karen emailed to remind me of the showing tonight, attaching the following note from her friend Nancy:

It has been our Lord's doing to get this show (a documentary) into the United States because the liberal leftists and Muslim organizations have pulled out all the stops to keep it out, so that none of us can see the TRUTH about Islam and Islamists.

Thank God for Fox News Channel, because none of the "alphabet" channels will air it as they think like John Kerry thinks. Someone had to provide extraordinary funding in order for us to be able to view it. Thank God for whomever that is, too! Apparently, it's a mind-blower; please plan to record it if you can't watch at one of those 4 times. And please circulate this email to all the people you know, both for their sakes and America's.

My prayer now is that the Lord will remind you to watch or record "OBSESSION", plus alert others!

May God bless America, in spite of ourselves.

Amen, Nancy

Hey Bill,

Why'd you take my comment down? Afraid to answer some questions?

Is it true, as a PVE resident wrote on April 8 that "most of the defects were caused by local officials' eagerness to build an artistic edifice"? Was money from the County for library service and employee salaries "hidden and later used to buy $2,000 chairs and $1,000 chandeliers"?

Can't you answer a few questions big guy?

Hey dumdum.
What has this old library business got to do with murderous Islam?

When the library was expanded as an "artistic edifice " in 1994 I was still living in New York and had not even heard of Palos Verdes.

So, your point is what?

Thanks for the heads-up. I will watch it today.

Incidentally, supporting the troops but not the mission is a bit like being a fan of the players but not the game. "I support all our brave members of the varsity, but I just wish they would stay home on Saturday and go to the dance, and not subject themselves to potential injury and the possibility of a humiliating defeat."

With friends like that, who needs enemies?
