Obsession is an anti-islamic film featuring interviews with a selection of 'counter-terror' activists, including controversial figures such as Daniel Pipes, Steven Emerson and UK operative Glen Jenvey. An Interpress Service investigation revealed that:

"Obsession" features interviews with Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, investigative journalist Steve Emerson, Itimar Marcus of Israel-based Palestinian Media Watch, and Daniel Pipes, a controversial scholar of medieval Islamic history whose website campus-watch.org sparked criticism in 2002 for its alleged McCarthyesque attacks on Middle East studies professors.

In 2011, the same production crew launched The Third Jihad, a follow-up film, expounding the same theme: islamophobia and smearing of American muslims[citation needed].
