What did you think about the DVD? Does it make you think that all Muslims are bad?

I threw it away. I wouldn't watch something the Klan inserted into my newspaper, why why would I watch this...

Local residents fearful after DVD. Was it that bad? The Blade said it was not which is why it was run in the paper.

I have just reviewed it and have found it to be truthful and accurate. Fear is not a reasonable response if the viewer understands the intent of the DVD. The intent of the DVD is to educate the public to lay down their code of "politically correct" sophistication and to look a new and emerging threat directly in the eye and to deal with it. How one "deals with it." will be as varied as the number of people who watch it with an open mind.

If at all possible, please review the DVD before posting comments as it will give you the information that you need to critically respond.

Does the DVD make you think that all Muslims are bad? The short answer - NO! The movie goes to great pains in the beginning to address that the issue is radical fundamentalist Islam, not Islam itself.

My only criticism of the movie was that it came close to stating the solution to radical fundamentalist Islam. It is my opinion, not the DVD, that neither the US, Europe, Christians nor Jews have the solution. Radical Islam may only be defeated by the Muslims themselves. Muslims Imams must stand in the mosques and denounce the radicals as being terrorist and criminals, Muslims must demand the revamping of their education system to teach their kids not to hate all Jews and all others, to not die for the Jihad but to live according to the Koran, and they must bring the radicals to trail and punishment.

Muslims must end the 24x7 demonetization of the Jews, America and the rest of the world. If Muslims of good faith do not soon wake up, they will find the fanatical Wahhabi fundamentalist will burn their world down around them and spit on their graves.

Read the Blade's letters to the editor in Sunday's newspaper - many people checked out the makers/marketers of this dvd - & it is connected with McCain, as a ruse to put fear in people's heads about Obama being Muslim (he's not, but that dvd doesn't represent most Muslims anyway). Just an ugly propaganda piece that was sent out to the swing states.

Wow. McCain decided to run for President in 2004!!! That was when the DVD was filmed and it was the 2005 Best Feature Film. As for an Ugly piece of popaganda, it is accurate and truthful. If anyone thinks the WW II connection is over the top, please read "Preachers of Hate" by Kenneth Timmerman. The book is also well researched but panned by the politically correct.

I would recommend the DVD be distributed to all non swing states. It is that good.

...and think for yourself and not let the Blade detract by their brand of Democratic propaganda. Please review the DVD and/ or the book as above and decide.

Is the call from Washington, but yet at the same time we support with arms and dollars regimes that give rise to the radicals, say Egypt for instance.

The country is repressing people and the radicals are stirring up trouble.

Why do we continue to support country's that repress their people and then we go and tamp down problems we have a hand in.

Why do we need a DVD to tell us that some people have violent interpretations of their religion? It's the same with every religion. Not exactly a big scoop

People like Pink Slip

Pink Slip

by the DVD simply have their head in the sand. Just because you want to pretend a storm is not coming...doesn't mean its not coming.

If you don't want to believe this video...then read their "holy" book the Koran. In it...you will find out exactly what Mohammed thinks should happen to those who are not muslim or don't covert to Islam.

One of Mohammed's teachings (to spread Islam) was to go into other nations and be quiet and humble...until accepted and tolerated...and then take it and rule by force. I fear this is exactly what is happening in America. Amazing...that Americans are so willing to hate a Christian religion that provides liberty...and tolerate Islam which promotes tyranny. The biggest lie going on right now is that its just muslim "extremists" when the truth is its all of Islam....again...just read the Koran...or better yet...have a discussion with a "moderate" muslim as to what they think of you and what should happen to you if you're not a muslim. You think Christians don't like gays....at least we don't stone them to death....You think Christians are annoying if you don't convert....at least we won't kill you.

This weekend...we are having a former muslim speak to a group of ours about how he had to flee the middle east because they will kill him for rejecting islam and turning to christianity. So much for religion of peace.

How foolish that we are giving away the freedoms we've enjoyed for two-hundred years all because of political/religious correctness.

Why then, are we not at war and constant attack by all the believers in the Koran?

It is just the radicals amongst them, that preach the message of hate, sorta like the extremists that kill people at abortion clinics, because taking a life is wrong, yet they take a life, all in the name of the disjointed view of their faith they hold.

Could it be that Infidels in the Koran were the polytheistic pagans in Mecca at the time of the handing down of the Koran?

Some Shia and Sunni see each other as infidels as they follow different paths, but follow the same text.

The big deal is that in this "Not exactly a big scoop" our nation is asked to support a long term and costly war. According to John Bryne's article the cost breaks down as this --
-- $435 million: Cost of Iraq war each day.
-- $526 billion: Cost of combat operations to date.
-- $1.2 trillion to $1.7 trillion: Estimated Afghanistan and Iraq combat costs through 2017.

And that is if we can get out by 2017 and assuming we are not fighting another major front.

I sense from your comments you haven't had a chance to review the DVD. Please do so. I think it may allow you to better re-frame your concerns.

the dollar figures associated with Iraq are justified in order to fight a war against muslim extremists, at least not any muslim extremists that were located there prior to March 2003. We created that mess ourselves.

Maybe we'd do better with this documentary in everyone's Blade...

The movie that has been astounding audiences in theaters around the world is now available on a high-quality, feature-packed DVD. Own the taboo-shattering documentary that Newsweek says "irreverently lays out the case that Jesus Christ never existed."

In this critically acclaimed film, you will discover:

The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus

The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults

Contemporary Christians are largely ignorant of the origins of their religion

Fundamentalism is as strong today as it ever has been, with an alarming 44% of Americans believing that Jesus will return to earth in their lifetimes

i just got the dvd in the mail. i don't subscribe to the blade so i thought id be one of the lucky ones not to get the disc, but here it is today, addressed to me.. why the hell did i get this sent my way????????
