The Third Jihad Producer: 'Bin Laden's Message Does Not Reveal True Motivations Behind 9/11 Attacks'
September 15, 2009
PORTSMOUTH, NH, (christiansunite.com) -- The producers of The Third Jihad today responded to the audio tape published today in the name of Osama Bin Laden.
"Radical Islamists have for years abused religious sensitivities and the tools of democracy in an attempt to undermine the American way of life," stated Raphael Shore, Executive Producer of The Third Jihad. "Yet, most Americans understand that the motivations behind the 9/11 attacks and the continued operation of terrorist organizations have nothing to do with American domestic or foreign policy."
"The message attributed to Bin Laden claimed that American support for Israel was the primary cause for the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. This is a weak attempt to make Americans question the strength of our democracy at home and around the world," added Shore.
"I am certain that the American spirit is much stronger than the will of theocratic despots like Osama Bin Laden."
Shore has made the feature-length documentary film The Third Jihad available for free online viewing as part of an initiative to remember the motivations behind the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
Over 25,000 concerned citizens have watched the film online during the campaign.
The Third Jihad documents the contents of a Jihadi Manifesto revealing radical's plans within the U.S. discovered by the FBI. The film (regularly priced at $19.95) has been available for free streaming in its entirety since Wednesday September 9. The campaign will run until Tuesday, September 15 on the film's official website: www.TheThirdJihad.com.
"Tens of thousands of concerned citizens have already seen this important film. Together we need to educate thousands more if we are to stand up and mobilize against the threat of radical Islam in the U.S.," added Shore.
The Third Jihad, the newest offering from the producers of the award-winning documentary film, Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, explores the growth of radical Islam in America.
The film, narrated by devout Muslim American Dr. 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."
