Some of our newest approbations:
“[Obsession] should be mandatory viewing, not only for every one in our government at every level, but for the mainstream populace as well. If ever there was a fact-based education vehicle that could unite this country against its current foe, this is it. “
New Media Journal
“The history that’s represented in [Obsession shows] that radical Islam is spreading, and it’s spreading fast, and it’s here in the United States too. “
“Leaves you speechless… [Obsession] is the single most powerful and terrifying public exposition of the fact that a global Islamic jihad is now being waged from Bali to Istanbul, from Chechnya to Madrid, from Morocco to Manhattan, from Thailand to Bloomsbury – and that the world that is under attack is deeply in denial about what it is facing. “
