2008/09/19: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, other Wisconsin papers distribute anti-islam DVD

Many readers of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel were shocked to find a DVD entitled "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" enclosed inside their Sunday newspapers. The film features the views of Walid Shoebat, an evangelical Christian who falsely claims to be a former Muslim terrorist. Last year, Shoebat told the Missouri Springfield News-Leader, "Islam is not the religion of God - Islam is the devil."

The film is being promoted by a right-wing group which is distributing the DVD's in so-called "swing states" where the Presidential race is expected to be close, including Wisconsin. Click "Read more" to see if your town is on the distribution list.

Email Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editor Martin Kaiser at: mkaiser@journalsentinel.com or call the editorial page editors at (414) 224-2143. Ask them to report on the shadowy right-wing group behind this campaign of hate and fear.
Other Wisconsin papers planning to distribute the film include: Green Bay Press-Gazette, Janesville Gazette, Journal Times and the La Crosse Tribune.
