AmericanLife Network will give two controversial documentaries about
radical Islam their world TV premieres.
The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America will premiere first, on Sunday, Oct. 18,
at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT while Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West
will premiere Sunday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Obsession, in particular, prompted protests on college
campuses when it was screened there in 2007 after not being picked up by
traditional film distributors, The New York Times reported.
"It features scenes like the terrorist attacks on the World Trade
Center and Muslim
children being encouraged to become suicide bombers, interspersed with those of
Nazi rallies," the Times reported.
The films were produced by Raphael Shore,
a Canadian who lives in Israel,
and directed by Wayne Kopping, a South African, The Times said.
The Third Jihad is a documentary about the destructive
aims of Radical Islam and its mounting threat to America and the world, ALN said in
a release. The film centers on the FBI discovery of a Grand Jihad Manifesto
calling for a "cultural jihad" to undermine the U.S. from within and exposes this
impending force as rarely covered by mainstream media.
Obsession is described as a documentary that focuses on
the threat radical Islam poses to Western civilization. Utilizing rarely seen footage from Arab
television, eyewitness testimony, and expert interviews, it reveals an
"insider's view" of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of
global jihad, and their goal of world domination, ALN said. The film also
traces the parallels between the Nazi movement of World War II, the radicals of
today, and the Western world's response to both threats.
"We are pleased to bring the US premiere of The Third Jihad to
ALN," ALN CEO Chris Wyatt said in a release. "This is the first time
Obsession will be broadcast in its entirety in the U.S. We firmly believe every
American family should be educated on this subject which has become a matter of
Wyatt and the Rev. Robert A. Schuller bought ALN earlier
