WASHINGTON – “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” a documentary of the phenomenal teaching of messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn about America following ancient Israel in the footsteps of judgment, was eclipsed after 67 weeks as the No. 1 faith movie or TV show in the country – by a documentary that hails “The Life of Muhammad.”
But it was a short-lived victory for Muhammad.
Yesterday, after the shock that a reverential bio-pic about Muhammad could ever be the top faith movie in the U.S., “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” was back on top.
Joseph Farah, the producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” said he knew his movie couldn’t possibly occupy the No. 1 spot on Amazon.com forever, but he’s shocked that a “pseudo-documentary about the life of Muhammad could be become the most purchased faith movie in America just 12 years after 9/11.”
“It’s revolting,” Farah said, “not that Isaiah was knocked out of the top spot after 67 weeks, but that it could be replaced by a movie that so distorts the twisted, murderous life of a megalomaniacal hate monger, oppressor of women and genocidal fiend whose teachings inspired the worst attack on American soil in the country’s history.”
The description of “The Life of Muhammad” says: “This is the extraordinary story of a man who, in little more than 20 years, changed the world forever. In a journey that is both literal and historical, host Rageh Omaar retraces the footsteps of the Prophet, from his humble beginnings in Mecca to his struggles with accepting his Prophetic role; from his flight to Medina to his subsequent military and political successes and failures-through to his death and his legacy.”
The movie was released Aug. 20 by PBS, a U.S. government-subsidized corporation.
“I’m sure all the money the federal government put into an advertising campaign for this tripe helped propel it to the top,” said Farah. “But I doubt it will have any longevity. I pray it doesn’t for the very future of our country. Whatever happened to the separation of church and state – or does that principle not apply to mosque and state.”
WND Films, which released the movie, has since produced a trilogy of shorter teachings by Jonathan Cahn – with more planned.
“The Life of Muhammad” was also the top documentary at Amazon for a short time. It now trails “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” in that category as well.
