The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America, the newest offering from the producers of the captivating documentary film, Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, explores the existence of Radical Islam in America and the emerging risk that this "homegrown Jihad" poses to national security, western liberties and the "American way of life."
The film, which is narrated by devout Muslim American Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, opens with the following statement: "This is not a film about Islam. It is about the threat of Radical Islam. Only a small percentage of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims are radical. This film is about them."

The documentary's title is a reference to the history and roots of the religious war known as Jihad and the spread of Radical Islam. The first Jihad is traced back to 630 AD, and the second to 1453 AD. The Third Jihad is the war we face today.
In 72 minutes, the film reveals that radical Islamists driven by a religiously motivated rejection of western values cultures and religion are engaging in a multifaceted strategy to overcome the western world. In contrast to the use of "violent jihad" and terror to instill fear in "non-believers," The Third Jihad introduces the concept of "cultural jihad" as a means to infiltrate and undermine our society from within.
The film focuses on the recent FBI discovery of a Muslim Brotherhood memo, a Grand Jihad Manifesto, calling for the destruction of the U.S. and the establishment of a radical Islamist Theocracy in its place. The document outlines how radical Islamists are taking advantage of our country's democratic processes and using them to destroy our way of life.
The desire to replace western freedoms and rights with Sharia Law (Islamic religious law) is clearly captured in the film by means of interviews with and the speeches of several radical American Muslim leaders and activists. This idea is also portrayed through shocking TV footage that had been aired on Islamic broadcasting stations around the world. Some of the dangers of Sharia Law are exemplified by the human rights injustices that arise in Radical Islamic societies, including the persecution, and in some cases the murder, of women, children, homosexuals, and Christians.
With the help of experts on Radical Islam, including a first-hand account from a former terrorist and interviews with human rights activists and American security specialists, the film asserts that the spread of Islamic fundamentalism in America is a societal reality that cannot be ignored. The movement's infiltration of American society includes a variety of mediums, such as the recruitment of radical supporters in prisons, mosques and universities; the manipulation of academic institutions by way of large donations; the establishment of secretive communities and training camps; and the exploitation of the media.
The film is being made available to Haaretz readers for the special discount price of $12.95 (regularly $19.95). Plus, order today and receive a copy of the secret FBI document with the coupon code: topsecret
