"Islam: What the West Needs to Know" DVD Set for Release 10/17

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- Quixotic Media, LLC announced today the upcoming DVD release of the feature documentary, "Islam: What the West Needs to Know" -- An examination of Islam, Violence, and the Fate of the Non-Muslim World, following the limited theatrical release in July.

The DVD will be available nationwide on October 17.

As acts of Islamic terrorism have multiplied over the past years, numerous Western leaders have insisted that Islam is a "religion of peace," and that violence committed in its name contradicts the teachings of the Koran and the example of the prophet Muhammad. However, it's rare for this claim to receive serious scrutiny.

Now the question is finally being asked, "Is Islam itself violent?"

Through an examination of the Koran, other Islamic texts, and the example of the prophet Muhammad, this documentary establishes, through a sober and methodical presentation, that violence against non-Muslims is and has always been an integral aspect of Islam. 'Jihad,' while best translated as 'struggle,' as represented in the Koran and the life of Muhammad, means nothing less than organized warfare against unbelievers. Furthermore, Muhammad's life is the sacred and holy model that all faithful Muslims must follow today. Just as Muhammad waged war throughout Arabia in the 7th Century, his followers continued to conquer, enslave, and devastate other peoples and cultures on three continents.

An examination of Islam's doctrines is necessary now in order to understand the motivations of its faithful followers and the present violent conflicts around the globe.

Produced and directed by Gregory M. Davis and Bryan Daly, the film features interviews with noted experts on Islam including Robert Spencer, Serge Trifkovic, Bat Ye'or, Abdullah Al-Araby, and former terrorist Walid Shoebat.

The film running time is 98 minutes and is unrated but does not contain nudity, obscenity, or explicit violence.
