Islam: What the West Needs to Know Photos

Movie Info

This documentary sets out to investigate the notion that Islam is a "religion of peace" and explore the widely circulated idea that those who commit violent acts in the name of Islam are a fanatic few. The filmmakers try to hold Islam's own sources to the light to make the controversial claim that the religion is actually driven by a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks to conquer any contradictory religion, culture, and, ultimately, government.

Critic Reviews for Islam: What the West Needs to Know

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

What viewers need to know -- if provoked by this film -- is there's far more nuance in Mary Habeck's book Knowing the Enemy: Jihadist Ideology and the War on Terror and Paul Berman's Terror and Liberalism.
