Islam vs. Islamists

The documentary titled “Islam vs. Islamists,” was produced by ABG Films with $675,000 in public funds from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was originally slated to run as part of PBS’ “America at a Crossroads” series. However, after viewing the film PBS executives told the filmmakers that it was “alarmist” and “overreaching” and that PBS would not run it.

    Many of us in the anti-Islamization spectrum think like fundamental Muslims, or buy into their propaganda. The Koran says X and since you don’t do X or believe X you are not Muslim and thus your voice is of no consequence. The Muslims in this film, heroes in my opinion, get something out of Islam, that I do not understand.
    They seem to have had a personal Islamic reformation, meshing democratic ideals with Islamic beliefs. Their words are not taqiya…they have placed themselves in extreme danger to speak them, and I for one think they are sincere.
    Thus many of the ideas put forth to deal with the Islamic dangers, (frustration and anger have led me to offer many) overlook the reality that there are perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands of such Muslims out there, who like us, are battling the same evil forces.
    Those evil forces are often their own families, neighbours, governments, and religious leaders. who wouldn’t hesitate to make their lives a living hell or to end them all together if they did, or said what we wish they would, and that many of them wish they could.
    So please keep that in mind as you wrestle with the demon of Islam.

    Great video, thank you for sharing!

    According to Wikipedia this video is a few years old and actually did air on “most” PBS stations across the country.
