NEW YORK, September 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
The critically acclaimed documentary The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America, will be available for free online viewing the week of September 11, 2011 to mark ten years since the horrific 9/11 attacks. The film highlights the ongoing debate on the dangers posed to America by Radical Islam.
"While Americans have expressed a genuine willingness to embrace members of all faiths to practice religion freely without discrimination, there are radicals that are taking advantage of American sensitivities," said Raphael Shore, Executive Producer of The Third Jihad.
"Ten years after the 9/11 attacks, radical groups have launched a persistent campaign to exploit American freedoms and our democratic system. This campaign takes place daily in our courtrooms, our press, our banks, our prisons and even in our schools. Plus, there have been over thirty foiled terror plots and successful attacks on our homeland in the past ten years, including the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood," Shore added.
The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America, explores the growth of Radical Islam in America and the risk it poses to national security and the American way of life. The film centers on the FBI discovery of a Grand Jihad Manifesto calling for a 'cultural jihad' to undermine the U.S. from within.
The film features 19 interviews with leading experts including Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, Former Director of Central Intelligence Jim Woolsey, and Former CIA Officer Clare Lopez.
The Third Jihad follows American Muslim physician and activist M. Zuhdi Jasser on his campaign to fight militant political Islam in America.
Dr. Jasser is the founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and is a nationally recognized expert on political Islam and American Islamist organizations. He has testified before Congress on radicalization in the American Muslim community and has been featured prominently on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, BBC, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal.
The Third Jihad was produced by the Clarion Fund, makers of the award-winning documentaries Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West (2006) and Iranium (2011).
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and Clare Lopez are available for interviews.
