Access Denied

accessdeniedTypically, we at RadicalIslam post about research and the opinions of others covering the topics related to stealth jihad and radical Islam. Today I am going to share with you one of yesterday's experiences at the Clarion Fund. As you may or may not know, Clarion Fund is the distributor of an important documentary, The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America.  We sell the DVD of the film online. To do that, like every other online merchant, we need to process credit card payments.  We recently decided to switch one of the applications that enables processing of the payments. We applied to a well-known service, and were denied.  Why?  Because the content we sell is considered to be "overly offensive". Our film features interviews with Rudy Guiliani, Former Homeland Security Tom Ridge, Senator Joseph Lieberman, former CIA Director James Woolsey, Princeton Professor Bernard Lewis, authors and experts, and has been hailed by Senators, Congressmen, and members of the media.  And this same film is considered too "offensive" for a company to process the credit card payments of the customers who want to buy the film and judge the issue for themselves. Today, our film is considered "offensive" because it addresses an issue--about a minority of vocal and often violent radicals that proclaim a deep hatred for American values--that is now being whitewashed in the media, and even in the commercial marketplace. We now live in a time when we need to be careful so that we don't arouse the sensativities of those who use our own sensativities against us.  Watch out Freedom of Speech.  And judge for yourself whether the film is "offensive".  Check out the DVD at
