February 21, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In response to a campaign of disinformation regarding the critically acclaimed film, The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America, the film's producers have released a video exposing the smear.
Most everyone interested in national security matters is by now aware that, The Third Jihad, has been subjected to intense vilification, led by the MSM [notably the New York Times] which now seems to be operating as a mouthpiece for the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Editor's note: Regarding CAIR's bona fides, the public record is clear. In post prosecution court proceedings, following the landmark conviction of all defendants in U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation, CAIR was specifically linked to Hamas by Federal judge Jorge Solis. "'The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling'" [source, The Investigative Project, Federal Dist. Court filing, http://www.investigativeproject.org/2340/federal-judge-agrees-cair-tied-to-hamas]
In the video, the film's producers charge, "...blatant inaccuracies, misquotes, omissions and innuendos of New York Times articles and editorials aimed at discrediting The Third Jihad as "hateful" and Islamophobic...Claims that The Third Jihad is an anti-Islam film are ignorant and misinformed...Those that have blasted the film are attempting to stifle an important debate about the internal state of the Muslim community in America, and whether politicized Islam and indoctrination pose tangible security threats..."
Third Jihad is narrated by Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim who intones at the film's beginning. "This not a film about Islam. It is about the threat of radical Islam. Only a small percentage of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims are radical.'"
Additionally the film's producers state, "The new video...demonstrates how the New York Times and CAIR campaign is a real-time example of cultural jihad, a strategy to use the banner of political correctness to manipulate American institutions and culture, the very subject of The Third Jihad."
