The National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC) has issued a statement condemning the film Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West. While the film, which equates Islam with terrorism, was originally released in 2006, 28 million free DVDs were sent to homes in September as part of an anti-Democratic, anti-Obama fear tactic.
“We are deeply troubled by the apparent intent of a film that presents a barrage of violent images, pieced together with the voices of commentators who move from speaking of “radical Islam” to impugning Islam and Muslims more generally and presenting fear-mongering parallels between today’s extremist terrorists and the Nazis. The National Council of Churches and its member churches consistently and adamantly denounce anti-Semitism in all its forms and condemn all forms of ethnic, racial, and religious hatred, including the Islamophobia typified in this film.”
The NCC brings together thirty-five national Protestant and Orthodox churches.
