I watched a documentary a few nights ago, entitled: "Islam: What the West needs to know". (A link to the video is included in the title.)
This video is not intended to spread hate or ignorance. In fact, it is just the opposite. The video is brought by professors, writers, and ex-muslims, (one of whom is an ex-jihadist @ time code 33:20) the subject matter experts on the topic.
*EDIT*: It's important to point out that this is not a video that is "pro-Judeo-Christian". It mentions Christianity and Judaism only when those religions play vital parts in the story that the video tells. There is no hidden agenda. The documentary simply tries to shed more light on the religion of Islam. It strives to clear up confusion, to educate, and to inform. It uses the Qur'an, interviews and testimony of those who have practiced the religion, and various video clips taken from different Muslim TV stations.
If you have an hour and a half, I invite you to watch the video, and decide for yourself.
