Appeal for Local PBS Airings for Moderate Muslims' Expose of the Radicalizing of US Mosques

As awareness grows about the “parallel societies” Islamists are trying to insinuate into Western democracies for the purpose undermining and ultimately displacing them – the importance and timeliness of this film and its companion documentary, “Muslims Against Jihad,” become all the more apparent.

There is, arguably, no more important topic for American (and, we believe, foreign) audiences to understand about the post-9/11 world than the plight of moderate Muslims at the hands of their Islamist enemies – and ours.

CAMERA's campaign:

Thanks to all of you who have been calling/writing your local PBS station to encourage them to show the important film "Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center".

At least 31 stations are scheduled to run it. At the bottom of this alert is a list of those currently slated to show the film, along with the date and time. Note that nearly all dates are in August. Additional airings in September and later could be in the works.

We'd like to focus our efforts now on 10 large PBS stations that have not yet agreed to air the film. Working as a team, concentrating our letters and calls on these 10 stations, will hopefully accelerate the approval process.
For more info on the film, go to www.freethefilm.org


* Please call or write the following PBS stations. Write to them one at a time, not as a group e-mail.

Let them know that "Islam vs. Islamists" is about moderate anti-Islamist Muslims in the U.S., Canada and Western Europe, and the social, financial and physical dangers they face by speaking out against Muslim extremism. Remind them the documentary is now available for individual PBS stations to air and urge them to broadcast the inspirational film.

* Let CAMERA know if you contacted a station and what its response was.
Please contact as many of these stations as you can to request the film be shown!
