Many readers of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel were shocked to find a DVD entitled "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" enclosed inside their Sunday newspapers.

Last year, Shoebat told the Missouri Springfield News-Leader, "Islam is not the religion of God - Islam is the devil."

President Alvaro Uribe response was to order the military into the mills to remove striking workers. The mill owners have called upon the national police to stop and inspect mill workers. Paramilitary groups have threatened several workers.
