Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is sponsoring a Capitol Hill screening of what his office deems a “controversial” film that labels the plan for the so-called Ground Zero mosque “yet another type of Islamic jihad.”
West’s office announced Tuesday that the Tea Party favorite would hold a press conference outside the Capitol building on Wednesday morning which would be followed by a screening of the film in the Rayburn House office building.
The film, titled “Sacrificed Survivors: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mega Mosque,” is produced by the Christian Action Network, which also released the movies “HOMEGROWN JIHAD: The Terrorist Camps Around U.S.” in 2009 and “ISLAM RISING: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West” featuring Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Widlers, who once called Islam the “ideology of a retarded culture.”
Sponsoring organizations of the event include The United West, ACT for America (Northern VA) and The Bravest.
Here’s a description of the film, from West’s press release:
As plans for a mosque move forward at Ground Zero, just steps away from the twin towers site, 9/11 survivors and family members are experiencing yet another type of Islamic jihad. PRB Films tells their poignant and shocking stories in this new film, “SACRIFICED SURVIVORS: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mega Mosque.”
Survivors fear after this week, the country will again become complacent and 9/11 will become a distant memory. They believe they must work to keep people vigilant and fighting against the march of radical Islam through attempts like the Ground Zero mosque. As retired New York City firefighter Tim Brown says, “If this mosque is built, it will be like 9/11 all over again for the families who lost loved ones.”
