Who's Afraid of 'Obsession'?
By Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. and Alex Alexiev
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) – an organization identified as a California-based Muslim Brotherhood front – convened a press conference today in Los Angeles with a senior representative of local law enforcement and members of other faiths. The stated purpose is to unveil a new “united front” initiative called the “Coalition for Renewing American Democracy” which MPAC has apparently conjured up in order to inveigh against “Obsession,” a documentary film that powerfully, and authoritatively, dissects radical Islam’s war against the West. Shortly after its 2005 premiere, the film won awards at three top international film festivals.
The problem for the Muslim Brotherhood is that millions of copies of “Obsession” have been distributed around the United States in recent weeks in national magazines, to several hundred college campuses, at both political conventions, and in local newspapers. As a result, many millions of Americans have had an opportunity to be educated about the ambitions of those who adhere to the Islamic political and legal system known as “Shariah” – namely, the realization through “jihad” of a world-wide and brutally repressive Islamic theocracy.
