The This Goes to 11 Movie Review: The Third Jihad

Tonight I attended a screening of Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser's expose on radical Islam, The Third Jihad.

There wasn't a lot of new news me. I've read Mark Steyn's America Alone, Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Infidel, several books by Robert Spencer (and his blog Jihad Watch), and I'm a frequent visitor to the MEMRI website. I had seen many of the videos and interviews before, but there was one segment that frightened me, not because I am not aware of Iran's nuclear threat, but because of the reminder that if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon, they WILL use it:

Bernard Lewis:

During the Cold War both sides, the United States and the Soviet Union, had nuclear weapons but they never used them because of what we knew as M.A.D....Mutual Assured Destruction. Each side knew that if they used a nuclear weapon the other would respond in kind and everybody would be destroyed.

M.A.D. won't work with Ahmadinejad because Mutual Assured Destruction for one of his mindset is not a's an incentive.

The recent economic crisis has certainly had the effect of causing many Americans to take their eyes off of a more dangerous long-term threat...radical Islam. And do we really want a President who believes this?:

The DVD can be purchased here. It's a good investment for those uncertain of the true threat of Jihad, and the film does an excellent job of summing up ALL of the ways the West is being threatened by radical Islam.
