OK that's nice to hear. Stay peaceful.

Now back on topic. Did somebody gas the people or not?

Is there proof McCain is behind this or are you just stirring things up with false allegations? It's a tactic that both Israelis and Muslim radicals have been using since the Balfour Declaration and British Mandate, even framing each other for acts committed by themselves.

It really doesn't help blaming, especially when there are no facts. A person is innocent until proven guilty. Overstepping that legal process is mob rule. It's exactly that kind of emotionalism that allowed Hitler to come into power.

We really should get beyond this false belief that "my" worldview is the correct worldview and if only everyone believed like "I" do, we'd all be saved. Democrats, Republicans, Muslims, Jews, Christians, etc. -- we're all to blame. No one is without sin. Saying otherwise is only deceit.

This DVD is being used as a scare tactic by the McCain campaign and is having the unintended consequences of violence against Arab Americans.

My opinion as an individual and thoroughly appalled human being:

John McCain has a moral obligation to publicly censure the Clarion Fund, the organization that produced Obsession and is distributing the DVDs; to denounce the inflammatory, anti-Muslim message of Obsession; and to do everything in his power to stop any further campaign activities by his supporters that have the potential to incite violence.


Violence against "Arab Americans"? First off, where do you begin with assuming that all of these Muslims are Arabs? There are just as many Asian Muslims in this country as well, and even American Muslims. Second, sad to say but the Muslim Community has brought the disgust, hatred, and violence upon themselves. The last time I checked Muslim Extremists were slicing the heads off infants, blowing up women in markets, and dissecting family pets to load them up with explosives and turn them into IED's. The Muslims have no one to blame but their fellow Muslims (albeit radical ones) for such biased attitudes towards themselves.

Also, you have absolutely NO proof whatsoever that Senator McCain has ANY involvement with this group. The first person to throw that allegation to the forefront was Ibrahim Hooper, the spokesman for the Council For American-Islamic Relations. He did so in his attempt to have the production group behind the Documentary shut-down, by legally having their status declared as "Politically Affiliated".

Not to mention that you have no right to call a factual documentary "Fear Mongering". If educating the public on the threats we truly face is "Fear Mongering", then Sticking Your Head In The Sand must be your skewed version of reality.

Muslim Children Gassed at Dayton Mosque After "Obsession" DVD Hits Ohio


www.dailykos.com

On Friday, September 26, the end of a week in which thousands of copies of Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West -- the fear-mongering, anti-Muslim documentary being distributed by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in major newspapers and through the U.S. mail -- were distributed by mail in Ohio, a "chemical irritant" was sprayed through a window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton, where 300 people were gathered for a Ramadan prayer service.
(visit the link for the full news article)


I watched the 12 minute version of that "Obsession" and, I must say, it could definitely spark some radical Americans...we all know we have them here too. Careless. True, we should be aware of what we're up against, but that video has a purpose and that purpose is to create a monster and the only reason to create a monster is to justify destroying that monster. Anyone with half a brain can figure that out.

How widespread are these DVD's? Did anybody here get one unsolicited in the mail?

I'm sure anyone can watch it on Google video, but that doesn't have the same publicity impact as direct mailings.

According to the article posted by frogs they are still investigating and are not sure what the irritant was, or where it came from.

I'm confused though is this a thread about the possible gassing of children, or is it a thread to bash a political candidate ? I do not understand your reference to McCain in regards to this.

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS
SPECIALIST DUSTIN CHALKER, and
MILITARY RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
FOUNDATION,
Plaintiffs,
vs. Case No. 08-CV-2467 KHV/JPO
ROBERT GATES, SECRETARY,
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE,
Defendant.
COMPLAINT FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF


In June, 2007, Brigitte Gabriel, author of Because They
Hate, delivered a lecture at the Joint Forces Staff College
(JFSC). During this lecture, which was part of the JFSC's
Islam elective, Gabriel said, among other things, that
American Muslims should not be allowed to hold public office
because the Koran tells them to lie, making their oaths of
office meaningless, and that American Muslims "are good at
nothing but complaining about every single thing." She also
instructed the students to call the F.B.I. if they saw a
mosque being built in their community, and included
derogatory comments such as referring to Dearborn, Michigan
as "Dearbornism" because of the city's large Muslim
community. One of the students subjected to these insulting
comments was a Muslim American who had been serving in the
U.S. Army for sixteen years.
Both Brigette Gabriel and Walid Shoebat appeared in the
2005 anti-Muslim documentary Obsession: Radical Islam's War
Against the West. This documentary, currently being
redistributed via DVDs inserted in major newspapers to
millions of voters in "swing" states, has been used by the
Department of the Navy, and has also been shown at U.S. Army
training events. The documentary has been endorsed by
Jeffrey H. Norwitz, Professor, U.S. Naval War College.
1) Constitutionally impermissible support for
religious organizations within the military, and those
organized by and comprised of members of the military, such
as Officers Christian Fellowship and CREDO Spiritual Fitness
Divisions, and Military Ministry;
Case 2:08-cv-02467-KHV-JPO Document 1 Filed 09/25/2008 Page 14 of 16
m) Constitutionally impermissible support for private
religious organizations that are granted access to military
installations, some of which are under D.O.D. contract.
These organizations include Military Ministry, Cadence
Ministries, Malachi Ministries and Military Community Youth
Ministries;
n) Constitutionally impermissible support for official
endorsement of private religious organizations by members of
the military and/or the Department of Defense. Endorsed
organizations include: Christian Embassy, Operation Straight
Up, and H.O.P.E. Ministries International;
0) Constitutionally impermissible support for blatant
displays of religious symbolism on military garb, fighter
aircraft and squadron buildings by the U.S. Air Force 523rd
Fighter Squadron;
p) Constitutionally impermissible support for
placement of a biblical quotation above the door of the Air
and Space Basic Course classroom at Maxwell Air Force Base;
q) Constitutionally impermissible support for illegal
use of official military e-mail accounts to send e-mails
containing religious rhetoric;

More Examples:

The link.




Omid Safi, a professor of Islamic studies at UNC-CH, has researched the video and the Clarion Fund. He says the producer of the video is a Canadian native who now is a rabbi and Zionist leader in Israel. Distribution was aided by a Christian Zionist organization headed by Texas evangelist John Hagee, he said, and a Clarion Fund Web site recently published, then removed, an article that endorsed John McCain over Barack Obama for president.

Safi noted that the DVD was placed in newspapers only in key election swing states, suggesting it's intended to scare voters into the McCain camp. "The whole premise of this film is that the West doesn't know what radical Islam represents," Safi said. "Fair enough. Tell us what you represent." My calls to the Clarion Fund were not returned.

I think newspapers have an obligation to be as transparent as possible with readers about the information they provide. In this case, I think the DVD fell short in two respects.

First, it should have been labeled as paid advertising content, as the newspaper would require of a political advertisement. Despite the story on the front page, it's clear from their comments that some readers perceived the video as somehow endorsed by The N&O. McClure said it's the first time he could recall that The N&O has distributed a DVD.

More important is the lack of information about the source of this controversial content. Without that, the readers were not in a position to make an informed judgment about the message they received.

Now this deeply saddens me. After 911 some kid in Cleveland took his mustang and sent it sailing thru a mosque at 80 mph. It was a wonder no one was killed.

This kind of reactionary foolishness is very depressing. And we wonder why aliens avoid us like a bad jerry springer episode.

I live in Columbus, Ohio and I have to learn waht is going on in my state through ATS. Go figure. This is the first I have heard of this and I watch the news as I am doing now and in the evening.

I'm not sure what happened exactly, but it is sad to say the least.

With all that is going on in the USA eight now you would think people would have more to worry about than some stupid maling they got.

By the way I never received anything in the mail like what was described. I wonder if it was sent to the voters of Dayton and not other cities.

From the Huffington Post





Pro-McCain Group Dumping 28 Million Terror Scare DVDs in Swing States

70 newspapers in swing states have been paid to distribute Obsession this weekend and next, which means not all the DVDs have been delivered yet. Check the list at the end of this post to see if your newspaper is one of them, and let them know how you feel about their participation in this shameless propaganda campaign.)

This week, 28 million copies of a right-wing, terror propaganda DVD are being mailed and bundled in newspaper deliveries to voters in swing states. The 60-minute DVDs, titled Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, are landing on doorsteps in a campaign coinciding with the 7th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Funding is coming from a New York-based group called the Clarion Fund, a shadowy outfit whose financial backers are unclear...

...(UPDATE 9/13 - Greg Mitchell of Editor & Publisher has more details. And here's a state-by-state list of most of the 70 newspapers in swing states that have agreed to deliver this garbage to their subscribers:

Colorado - Boulder Daily Camera, Centennial Citizen, Colorado Springs Gazette, Denver Post, Fort Collins Coloradoan, Greeley Tribune

Iowa - Daily Nonpareil, Des Moines Register, Iowa City Press Citizen, Quad City Times, Sioux City Journal

Indiana - South Bend Tribune

Florida - Daily Commercial, Florida Times-Union, Ft. Lauderdale El Sentinel, Ft. Myers News Press, Miami Herald, Ocala Star Banner, Orlando Sun Sentinel, Palm Beach Post, Tampa Tribune, Tallahassee Democrat, St. Petersburg Times, South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Michigan - Detroit Free-Press, Flint Journal, Grand Rapids Press, Lansing State Journal

Missouri - Springfield News-Leader

Nevada - Las Vegas Review-Journal/Sun, Nevada Appeal, Reno Gazette-Journal

New Hampshire - Portsmouth Herald News, Union Leader

New Mexico - Clovis News Journal, Hobbs News-Sun, Rio Rancho Observer

Ohio - Canton Repository, Columbus Dispatch, Dayton Daily News, Middletown Journal, Morning Journal, Toledo Blade, Youngstown Vindicator

North Carolina - Charlotte Observer, Raleigh News & Observer

Pennsylvania - Bucks Co. Courier Times, Erie Times-News, Morning Call, Philadelphia Inquirer, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Reading Eagle, The Patriot-News

Virginia - Sun-Gazette, Virginian-Pilot

Wisconsin - Green Bay Press-Gazette, Janesville Gazette, Journal Times, La Crosse Tribune, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)



The DVD's are being distributed coincidently in swing states...hmmm. Promoting religious hate intolerance and fear to get votes...classy! When do the the trucks filled with brownshirt thugs start driving around our neighborhoods spewing hate over loudspeakers???

McCain needs to make this right!

You get radical CHristian, Jewish muslim et al groups everywhere , who will use any reason/excuse/made up fantasy to cause mayhem and destruction - the epitome of terrorism.

what is of serious concern is that both Obama and McCain (and Palin now) have all been directly asociated with radical Chrisitanity - which as history shows is just as bloody as any other radical group.

are we seeing a new `crusade` ? where instead of knights on horseback going forth in the name of Jesus, we see knights in DU lined Chobham armour?

Most provacative stance Harleguin. I have thought the same many many times. I am a chronic pbs watcher. And some of the documentaries regarding to the churches philosophies have been disturbing at best.


Hahahaha. Why can't we just all get along?

What I can't understand is why don't people just leave each other alone?
I have my views of religion and other's have their's so what's the big deal?
I may or may not believe that If someone does not accept Jesus as there savior that they will go to hell, If i see someone searching for something religious to worship, sure I'll point them to my own, the one I know but in no means does someone else have any right what-so-ever to force a belief of a god on another. That is just pure ignorance or selfishness, I'm not sure which.
