The Third Jihad

Posted by Richard on October 24, 2008

Tonight, I attended a special Denver screening of the Clarion Fund's new film, The Third Jihad, along with members of the Jewish Republicans of Colorado, Colorado fans of Dennis Prager, and others like me concerned about the Islamists' war against Western Civilization.

I'm tired and not up for a detailed review, but I highly recommend this film. You can see a 30-minute version on the website and pre-order the full-length film, which ships Oct. 29. This film is more low-key than Obsession because it's focused on the "soft" or "political" jihad instead of violent jihad. But in many ways, it's even more compelling and disturbing.

The film is narrated by a real moderate — and heroic — Muslim, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser. I've posted about (and donated to) his organization, American Islamic Forum for Democracy in the past. The film also features Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Walid Phares, Joe Lieberman, Mark Steyn, Bernard Lewis, and Melanie Phillips. 

I suspect that viewers of The Third Jihad will fall into three groups: (1) those who go into denial, say to themselves that none of it is true or real, and just put it out of their heads; (2) those who get quite depressed, discouraged, and hopeless (this is an unfortunate, but understandable reaction; the film suggests that Western Civilization faces a grim future if things don't change); and (3) those who are motivated (or even more motivated) to take action to defend the values of liberty and democracy against barbarism.

I'm in the third group. As soon as I got home, I made online donations to the Clarion Fund, The Third Jihad, the new associated site,, and AIFD. Please check out these fine organizations and watch the short online version of The Third Jihad. See if there's a theatrical screening in your area — or contact them about scheduling one! Or order the full-length DVD and then have some friends over to watch it with you. 

I'd really like you to join me in the third group.

    I was at the same event, and I got to tell you, that film is really scary – it’s something every American needs to see – and I hope that people don’t fall into either of those to categoires you mentioned.

    Me? I consider myself quite a liberal person on most issues, but I recognize the treat we are facing with the radical Muslims and I think this film does a great job of getting the information across is a clear and accurate way.

    I hope more people see it.
