The must-see documentary of the decade.

Obsession will literally blow your mind - forget what you've been told, this is where your education begins...


Edited and Directed by Wayne Kopping; produced by Raphael Shore

Wayne Kopping is no stranger to the South African media, especially MNET. He is probably best remembered as a KTV presenter in the days of old, but the passage of time has allowed this talented young man to pursue his avid interest in film and media and he has come up with another thought provoking documentary, entitled Obsession: Radical Islam's war against the West.

His first effort was entitled: Relentless: the Struggle for peace in Israel.

The former documentary is exceptionally graphic and frightening. It is not in any way an indictment of Islam, nor is it a public smear campaign against the Islamic faith. It is in effect a behind the scenes expose of the dangers of radicalism and fundamentalism. It goes to great lengths to promote tolerance and awareness by fostering an atmosphere of goodwill between the Muslims of the world and Western society. The dangers of indoctrination, where radical clerics preach for the destruction of the infidels; the State of Israel and all things non-Islamic are explored. The graphic nature of the documentary left the entire audience feeling uneasy, uncomfortable and shocked.

The demonisation of the great Satan 'America' took centre stage, as did calls for the elimination of the State of Israel. In essence it was the other side of what the media doesn't report; the side that exposes radicalism and extremism for the real threat it poses to the world at large. We must remember that Islam is being hi-jacked by certain elements, hell-bent on blood and iron. This is not reflective of the views of the overwhelmingly peace-loving Muslims, but only of the vociferous few, comprising an estimated ten to fifteen percent who call for the annihilation of all things Western.

I must re-iterate that this has been the most thought-provoking documentary I have ever seen; it is frighteningly gruesome and the reality of what really goes on is terrifying.

I managed to speak to Wayne Kopping after the screening and he has alluded that certain media channels have expressed an interest in screening the documentary. The problem is that the censorship board in South Africa may not be ready for national screening of this documentary. So frightening is this film that it has left me and everyone else in the audience feeling uneasy after our departure.
