The mass mailing of a controversial DVD "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" has sparked anger among many in South Florida.
The hour-long video began turning up in mailboxes last week as a direct mailing, and also as an advertising insert in dozens of newspapers, including The Miami Herald and the South-Florida Sun-Sentinel.
The DVD is promoted by Clarion Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to "educating the public about national security threats."
South Florida Muslims say it maligns their faith and fuels hysteria ahead of the fast-approaching US presidential vote.
"I think it's very irresponsible of the newspapers themselves to disseminate such propaganda," said Altaf Ali, executive director of the Florida chapter of The Council on American-Islamic Relations. "It's fueling hysteria."
