    Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is an Islamic supremacist. He never talks about the true nature of Islamic ideology and its threat to the world.

    Islam is the most genocidal ideology in human history. Muslims exterminated about 300 millions of innocent people: 120 million Africans, 90 million Christians, 80 million Hindus, 10 million Buddhists
    sources: http://www.politicalislam.com/tears/pages/tears-of-jihad//
    http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/eid/vol8no9/01-0536.htm

    The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are minor skirmishes. The real jihad is waged by Muslim invaders of the West who pretend to be immigrants. If the present trends continue, in 50 years European Muslim population will grow from 52 million to 370 million, while U.S. Muslim population will grow from 8 million to 147 million. Islam will bring rivers of blood into our cities. The sooner the civil war begins, the better are our odds of winning the war.

    “Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.” – Ali Gom’a (grand mufti of Egypt, the highest Muslim religious authority in the world, Al Ahram, April 7, 2008) source: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/8066

    “Muslims who share the same goals as Osama bin Laden but are pursuing them through non-violent means are celebrated by gullible Westerners as moderates.” – Robert Spencer

      How do you know this man is an Islamic supremacist?  Do you have any real documentation to back up your statement?  I honestly am interested to know.  I personally have never heard of this man prior to this film.

      • towelhead

        I read his articles posted on the Internet. I have absolutely no doubt that Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is an Islamic supremacist.

        • Natural One

          How does what you are attesting affect the points made about the subject matter in this documentary? You strike me as one of those jealous racist bigots that sees an educated muslim and just cant stomach the fact that this ‘towel-head’ has achieved in his life what you have not. An education, a position of responsibility, high esteem, money, A POSITIVE FRAME OF MIND? And most importantly, an altruistic outlook and a willingness to address the problems of the world. Maybe you should put down your petty perceptions and start living the good life, and love your fellow man.

          • Ugh!! Fuck Me Dad!!

             “ALL OF YOU……FUCK MY ASS!!”

            I just sprayed shit and cum at the same time

        • Imightberiding

          Thanks for your response to my inquiry.  It seems you & I have both attracted an enemy of sorts with our previous comments.  @ “Natural one” comes across as somewhat as a bigot or more strongly, racist with a short fuse.  Maybe he or she will take the time to fully read comments & watch the film prior to taking the piss out of the rest of us prior to commenting in the future.  Cheers!

       racist dickhead

  • some dude

    i was going to watch this but this guy ruined it from the intro, his face when talking is so smug, he looks like he’s enjoying his own fart and basking in the ambiance of his smug fart of shit..

    • Imightberiding

      Yes he does come across as a pretentious twat, but perhaps getting past his fart stink & actually watching the film might be a worthwhile endeavor. 

      • Natural one

        Both of you are ignorant morons. This is what an intelligent and educated human being looks like and speaks like.

        • Imightberiding

          Come on my friend.  Could you not understand that my comment was written tongue in cheek?  Obviously it has been “lost in translation” with the restrictions of type rather than tonal inflections that are heard in audible voices.  The presenter did honestly come across a wee bit full of himself.  That said, I was tugging/messing with the person I was responding to as to his obviously offensive comments towards the presenter’s digestive short comings.  I am sorry that I wasted your time with my dark sense of humour that perhaps in the end  I am the only person that it brings a smile to. 

          • Rhodesschneider

            ^actually that is what an intelligent human speaks like

  • Dpuck_99

    Hey guys. Why don’t you watch the film and engage with the mans Ideas instead of focussing on his looks like a immature teenager and writing racist comments. He is not an Islamic supremacist that is utter crap.

    • http://www.facebook.com/marvin.l.eason Marvin L Eason

      Exactly, leave it to the racist to miss the content and focus on a man’s skin color.

  • Jackmeoff

    Somedude and Towelhead need a serious education. Obviously they represent the problem that is put forth here in this well researched and enlightening documentary, albeit a bit boring at times. They attack with “personal lenses” and fail to see the “bigger picture”, exactly what Mr. Ahmed was trying to convey here. Somedouchebag and Towerhead”s views are racist and nearsighted to a point of ridiculousness. Towerhead provides right wing, biased, establishment “scholarly” articles as his source of ignorance. LAUGHABLE. And all Somedouchebag can offer is a rant about gas….as in farts. Childish. This should be watched as Mr Ahmed’s message was from the start….with an open mind dealing what we know as FACTUAL evidence, NOT personal opinions….WAKE UP Some Douchebags and Tower Heads in your neighborhood!! This doc is RICH with factual information on how things are now, and what’s coming along in the future of geopolitics….he’s a doctor on this shit….are you?

    lol no one is talking about the films content

  • Pegasuswindows

    Karl Marx said that consumerism would never work, I think the most pressing concern though is a lack of water in the future. Well this movie was made before the great drought in the U.S. in 2012.

  • kevdev

    more CO2 misinformation! we produce 3% of the worlds CO2, nature does the rest. that’s factual. one volcano can produce more CO2 than mankind since 1900. that’s also factual. look it up. this is just more bullshit. 

    • Brian

      Why do you say it if it just isn’t even close to being true? I don’t understand. Studies show that globally, volcanoes on land and under the sea release a total of about 200 million tonnes of CO2 annually. For us humans, the global fossil fuel CO2 emissions for 2003 tipped the scales at 26.8 billion tonnes. Thus, not only does volcanic CO2 not dwarf that of human activity, it actually comprises less than 1 percent of that value.
