"Undercover Mosque"

This controversial documentary aired on the United Kingdom's Channel 4. It documents the "evangelistic" efforts of the Saudi religious establishment, and it confronts pluralistic secularism with a starkly different worldview.

Some subjects make statements so radical that the context doesn't matter—the claim that the AIDS epidemic in Africa came about because of intentionally contaminated vaccinations for example. But the documentary does not attempt to differentiate degrees of radicalization or explain what it means when individuals and organizations who publicly disavow terrorism advocate political jihad instead.
