Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West, also called Obsession, is a 2005 American documentary movie about Islamist teachings and goals that uses extensive Arab and Iranian television footage. It compares the threat of Islamism with that of Nazism before World War II. It is the sequel to the documentary Relentless:The Struggle for Peace in Israel.
Obsession examines the origins of contemporary radical Islam and traces it back to the alliance between Islamists and the Nazi Party during World War II, specifically the relationship of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem with Adolf Hitler as an inspiration for radical Islamic movements in the Middle East today.
