On Sunday, September 14, 2008 nearly fifty major newspapers throughout the United States carried as

an insert in their Sunday edition, a free pre-release one hour edition of the controversial film,

"Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West."  The release of the film, considered by many to be very incendiary, insensitive, negative, and aggressively biased, has caused an elevation of community concern. Who is the responsible! And let them show the public any benefit for our national security!


A decision by The Charlotte Observer and other newspapers to distribute as paid advertising a

DVD about Islamic fundamentalism brought objections Friday from Muslims, who condemned the documentary as "hate speech." The DVD called "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" was inserted in about 200,000 copies of today's Observer.  More than 80 other U.S. newspapers, including the (Raleigh) News & Observer and Miami Herald, also are including the DVD in their deliveries.  According to reports in the Huffington Post, 28 million copies of the film are being delivered this week. The DVD has already been inserted into copies of The New York Times distributed in Midwestern states. This weekend and next, it is slated to be distributed in many newspapers in the electoral battleground states of Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Colorado, in addition to North Carolina.

Muslims interviewed by the Observer charged that the distribution, less than two months before Election Day, is a ploy by the New York-based Clarion Fund to assist GOP presidential candidate John McCain, who leads Democrat Barack Obama in polling on national security issues.

They are doing Da'wah (preaching) against Islam & Muslims.  We are the ones who are supposed to do Da'wah for Islam & Muslims.


Unfortunately, it is too late to call major newspapers to ask them why, when, and how... major newspapers have already distributed the DVD to poison the public's mind against Islam and Muslims and they have done the damage. 


The newspapers are partners with the DVD producers and instead of asking them about the reasons for distributing this harmful DVD or requesting them not to do it again, we should demand a sincere public apology that is available to all.  There is absolutely no excuse or logical reason for distributing a biased DVD of this nature when we consider all the hard work that both determined Muslims have been doing to encourage the message of tolerance and removing excessive fear from people's hearts.

The newspapers should also be held responsible for any increase of "Hate Crimes" against the Muslims, especially since they didn't have the common courtesy of considering such very possible harmful effects especially to Muslim children in America.

We should start to hire a team of lawyers to plan a group of law suits against the "Obsession" DVD movie producers, their financial supporters, and their promoters & distributors.


Dear Brothers and Sisters:


The American Muslims are the best resources in America. We have been working with all forces like the justice department, law enforcement, and Department of Homeland Security to protect our country from any future terrorist attacks.

The Obsession DVD movie has nothing to do with protecting our country from terrorism or even radicalism. It shows clearly that the goal of the makers is to bring more hate and discrimination and that will develop violence against Muslims. The terrorist attack of 9/11 also did the same by bringing hate and discrimination against Islam and Muslims. They (Terrorists and the Movie makers) both are partners to divide the American society and they both should be stopped.


9/11 did not benefit Islam and Muslims in America.  9/11 hurt us all and that is the reason it is the Muslims' war as well against terrorism and against extremists like the "Obsession Movie Makers".


The people who made this movie prove that their intention is to fight the American public by hurting and fighting the American Muslims.

The solution to deal with this evil campaign is by following the actions below:

1-  If you are subscribed to one of the newspapers that shared the distribution of the DVD, simply ask them to stop immediately the subscription of the newspaper until they write an apology.  Do not ask them why they did it rather explain to them why you are stopping the subscription. 

2-  If you are an owner of any grocery/retail stores, please ask them not to place their newspapers in their respective stands and refuse to carry them.  We have thousands of business stores owned by Muslims promoting their papers. Believe me that if the big advertisers discover that there are

no stands for the newspapers, those advertisers will complain more effectively than us.

3-  Open the newspaper and call each advertiser in the newspaper and/or send them e-mails and

faxes to complain about the newspapers blatant wrong doing and disregard against their customers

(that is us the American Muslims and others).

4-  For the American Muslim organizations, please we need to bring our issue to the Department of

Justice and I assure you with teamwork and cooperation we can win in the end and the makers

of the DVD will be exposed. We need to take them to court. Their evil action has nothing to do

with freedom of speech but rather it has to do with violating the very essence of religious tolerance in America.


5-  The most important action and I believe that it is also the most effective is to fight their Da'wah

against Islam and Muslims by doing our duties as Muslims and start to do a mass Da'wah for Islam & Muslims. I call upon all Muslims especially the Muslim organizations like ISNA, MAS, ICNA, CAIR, AMANA, the EEE &I, Discover Islam, IMPAC, IMAN, MANA, and all the Islamic Centers and all the

MSAs and the MSOs to start increasing their efforts to the maximum to buy all the public mailing lists, also through the same newspapers and door to door distribution to send CDs, DVDs, Brochures

and other materials on ISLAM, on Prophet MUHAMMAD (SAW), on SALAH, on RAMADAN, on HAJJ,

on WOMEN in Islam, and on CHARITY & GIVING, and other important issues to teach the public correctly about Islam and its harmonious message of peace.

Let us get the American public familiar with us. Let us teach them that Islam does not promote aggression and hate. Let us do our duties as Muslims by sending more than 100,000,000 Da'wah materials to the American Public. Our organization AMANA, the American Muslim Association of North America, have distributed for the past 11 years more that 100,000 thousand Qur'an and 100,000 books, brochures, & CDs, on Islam and Muslims.  Together we can send more than 100,000,000 and that way we will show the truth.  I am confident that the American public will not be misled if we react from today to practice our rights on defending the truth and continue to set good examples. 

It is the truth my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters that will bring a healthier society in this country.  It will reinforce the message that people of all faiths should live in peace without neglecting anybody's civil rights.


Without a tolerant, healthy society we will never be a stronger America against all the challenges we are facing.

It is a shame that in this age of education and in this diverse country of America, that we have to address such an issue.  But I hope you sincerely agree that we cannot afford to stay quiet or passive and let all of our hard work be overturned by a disgraceful decision such as of the distributing of this DVD.  If we do not take action, then you can imagine what to expect in the future.  Let's be proud American Muslims and let our voices be heard so that we can pave a bright future of hope for the next generation, not a future filled with unsupported fear and intolerance.  Finally, let us be the positive change and pray for the best. (PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THIS MESSAGE)
