etro Detroiters will have an
exclusive opportunity to
attend the Michigan premiere
of the documentary Third Jihad Tuesday,
May 12, and meet the narrator and guid-
ing force behind the film.
Former U.S. Navy lieutenant com-
mander Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a self-
described "anti-Islamist Muslim': will
be guest speaker and moderator at
the May 12 screening of Third Jihad at
Temple Israel in West Bloomfield.
The founder of the American Islamic
Forum for Democracy and former phy-
sician to the U.S. Congress, Dr. Jasser
is a devout Muslim who has dedicated
himself to warn Western societies about
the threats of political Islam. He is fea-
tured on CNN and other media outlets.
The newly released documentary
is a gripping expose of radical Islam
in America and the emerging risks
from cultural jihad's insidious pen-
etration of our society's educational,
legal, political and financial systems.
The film is largely inspired by the
FBI discovery of a disturbing Muslim
Brotherhood memorandum for opera-
tions in America detailing methods by
which radical Islamists should exploit
our open democracy to undermine
and subvert it from within.
Among the objectives outlined in the
Brotherhood manifesto and one that is
far advanced in implementation is the
establishment of "moderate" groups,
mosques and Islamic centers strategi-
cally positioned to weaken our culture
and promote the acceptance of Sharia,
or Islamic religious law.
The film is premised on the
assumption that most people do not
recognize or have a sufficient under-
standing of radical Islam. According
to its producers: "Most people are
oblivious to what is really going on
in the United States and around the
world. Violence due to radical Islam
is rising every year. We do not really
believe there's a need to defend the
core values of our civilization. We take
for granted that our civilization is safe.
The radicals know better."
The documentary, which features
interviews with such widely respected
experts on Islam as Bernard Lewis,
raises awareness about radical Islam's
harsh intolerance of basic human
rights and western freedoms. Third
Jihad drives home the dangers of
Sharia by spotlighting shocking foot-
age from around the Islamic world
capturing the persecution, violence
and murder of women, children,
homosexuals, Christians and other
The documentary is careful to dis-
tinguish between radical Islam and
Muslims worldwide. Assert the film's
producers: "We can speak up, while
still maintaining respect for different
cultures. Our problem is that we are
so worried about preserving multicul-
turalism that we have neglected basic
Ultimately, the film concludes that the
spread of Islamic fundamentalism and
homegrown terrorism is a challenge to
our way of life and national security that
can no longer be ignored. Following the
film, Dr. Jasser will field questions and
share his perspectives as to how citizens
can work effectively to repel the perils of
radical Islam in America. 7_
The event begins at 7 p.m. and is open to
the community at no charge. Advance reg-
istration is required; call Michelle Lichtman
at Temple Israel at (248) 661-5700 or
send her an e-mail message at michelle®
Most Michigan supporters of Israel
say,"I live 7,000 miles away from
Israel and am only one person. Israel
celebrated its 61st birthday last
week; what can I alone possibly do to
ensure that it celebrates its 62nd?"
Besides supporting the Jewish
Federation's Annual Campaign and
other Israel-focused charities, you
can write letters of complaint or
compliment to the news media;
tell your congressmen to support
Israel; and speak to your neighbors,
co-workers and friends about Israel.
