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.

DAYTON — Officials from the Dayton fire department and HAZMAT have not determined what type of chemical was released during a Friday night service at the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton center, 26 Josie St., according to Dayton Fire Lt. John Strukamp.
The Society held the service to recognize and celebrate Ramadan, but the service was disrupted by a suspected chemical irritant that forced members out of the church and into the streets.
Dayton fire emergency personnel were dispatched to the Society's center at 26 Josie St., near downtown, about 9:45 p.m. on a report of a chemical irritant in the basement. When firefighters and HAZMAT personnel arrived, they noticed a bad odor, Strukamp said Saturday, Sept. 27.
HAZMAT officials reported to the fire department that "they had checked the structure for pepper spray, but nothing was detected," Strukamp said.
So far there is no indication that the incident was the result of a hate crime, according to Dayton police.
Society officials could not be reached for comment Saturday.
On Friday night, emergency medical personnel set up triage stations in at least two places — along South Keowee Street and at Josie and McLain streets — to treat those who complained of burning eyes and labored breathing.
On Friday night, Ismail Gula, ISGD secretary, said people were praying during the weekly service when some in the audience began to cough and experience breathing troubles, then left the building.
Once outside, one of them called 911, Gula said.
According to fire dispatch communications, a child reported seeing two men with a white can spraying something into a window.
Fire dispatch communications also revealed that one adult and one child were taken to area hospitals for treatment related to the irritant.
Emergency personnel used towels and saline to wipe the eyes of several of the people who had been in the building.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. During the month, Muslims fast (do not eat) from sunrise to sunset. In the evening and in the morning before the sun comes up, they eat small meals. During this month, they take extra time for family, inner reflection, and spiritual growth.
