Iran’s nuclear program presents a threat to international stability. Yet successive American administrations-Republican and Democratic alike-have misread the intentions and actions of the Iranian regime.

How dangerous is a nuclear Iran, even if it never detonates a weapon? What are the guiding principles of the Iranian leadership? To what lengths would the regime go to carry out its agenda? How far have Iran’s leaders already gone to fund the world’s most powerful terrorist organizations? And why have American leaders failed to gain the upper hand in relations with Iran during the past 30 years?

In approximately 60 minutes, Iranium powerfully reports on the many aspects of the threat America and the world now faces using rarely-before seen footage of Iranian leaders, and interviews with 25 leading politicians, Iranian dissidents, and experts on: Middle East policy, terrorism, and nuclear proliferation.

  • Iranium documents the development of Iran’s nuclear threat, beginning with the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and the ideology installed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.
  • Iranium tracks Iran’s use of terror as a tool of policy, beginning with the 444 day seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, through Iran’s insurgent actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  • Iranium details the brutal nature of the Iranian regime to its own citizens, and the Iranian people’s desire to rejoin the international community.
  • Iranium outlines the various scenarios the greater Middle East and the Western world may face should Iran cross the nuclear threshold.


Car Bomb

Commissioning Editor Aaqil Ahmed

Forget about nuclear missiles, the decisive weapon of the twentieth century is the car bomb.

After Iraq we now know you can defeat a Superpower, start a civil war or just blow up your own Government with a trunk load of home-made explosives and a battered old car.

From the Middle East, Oklahoma, Ireland and the streets of the City of London the car bomb has shaped human conflict. Even today the car bomb remains the number one terrorist threat across the world.

In his startling new film Car Bomb ex-CIA agent Robert Baer, whose life was depicted by George Clooney in the Oscar-winning movie Syriana, for the first time uncovers the history of this extraordinary weapon.

With shocking footage of car bomb attacks and penetrating interviews with car bombers, Baer reveals how the century of the car turned into the century of the car bomb.

And how a dream of freedom turned nightmare.

Presented by Robert Baer
Produced and Directed by Kevin Toolis
Commissioning Editor Aaqil Ahmed

Britain is under siege. We live in the shadow of the suicide bomber.
Nightclubs, airports, even holiday resorts – all are targets. But can we ever defeat an adversary who longs only for death, martyrdom and the 72 virgins of ‘paradise’?

In the final film of the Emmy nominated Cult of the Suicide Bomber series, ex-CIA agent Robert Baer is on the intelligence trail to investigate how the West can stop the home-grown suicide bomber.

Baer, the real life basis for George Clooney’s character in the Oscar
winning Syriana movie, speaks to the hunters and the hunted from
Israeli intelligence chiefs to Afghan mujaheddin. In the UK Baer
follows the trail of the 21/7 bombers.

Baer’s journey takes him from shocking interviews with Afghan child suicide bombers in secret interrogation centres in Kabul to the grim back streets of refugee camps in the besieged city of Nablus in the Occupied Territories.

With unseen footage of actual suicide bombing attacks, Cult of the
Suicide Bomber III is the definitive television investigation of the enemy we all now fear – the suicide bomber.

Cult of the Suicide Bomber, Part 2


Presented with the kind permission of Kevin Toolis, Many Rivers Films

On July 7 2005 London was attacked by a new, deadly enemy – the home grown suicide bomber. How could four British citizens turn themselves into human bombs?

How can a woman like 29-year-old Palestinian lawyer Hanadi Jaradat eat lunch in an Israeli restaurant then deliberately stand between two families and blast them and herself to pieces?

For twenty years Robert Baer worked in the Middle East as an agent for the CIA’s Directorate of Operations.

… Robert Baer returns to investigate the rise of Western and female suicide bombers in a new sequel Cult of the Suicide Bomber II and finds out why the ‘virus’ of the cult of the suicide bomber has attracted a new generation of ever more deadly adherents, Westerners and women.

From the grim back streets of Beeston in Leeds – where the 7/7 bombers came from – to the Syrian capital Damascus, to the misery of the Gaza Strip, to the suffocating confines of the world’s only jail for failed female suicide bombers, Baer uncovers the psychology and motivation of individual bombers.


Cult of the Suicide Bomber, Part 1

Presented with the kind permission of Kevin Toolis, Many Rivers Films

Featuring Robert Baer (Case officer in the Directorate of Operations for the CIA from 1976 to 1997)
Produced & directed by David Batty and Kevin Toolis

In this fascinating award-winning documentary, ex-CIA agent Bob Baer traces suicide bombing from its origins on the southern battlefields of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war to the suicidal car bombers of the Lebanon, to the random terror of Jerusalem’s human bomb bus war, and on to the bloody carnage of the July 7th Underground bombings in London.

With extraordinary footage of actual suicide bomb attacks, and riveting interviews with failed suicide bombers and their families, The Cult of the Suicide Bomber is the definitive documentary history of the rise of an enemy against whom there is no real defence.

Cult of the Suicide Bomber has been broadcast all over the world and has been nominated for an Emmy and the prestigious British Grierson documentary award.

Cult of the Suicide Bomber was theatrically released in New York …

Child Hamas militant

… Presented by former CIA spy, Robert Baer, who returns to a former theatre of operations, the Middle East, to trace the origins of the modern day bomber.
There is no good news here for the fearful and uncertain in the West, but Baer does present a clear landscape of where and how the “pathological virus” has thrived and from whence its notions of honour and glory emerged.

The first film starts with the fascinating story of the world’s first suicide bomber, who arose in the Iran-Iraq war and is now a hero in Iran.

Hossein Fahmideh was a tender 13-year-old in 1980, when he threw himself under an Iraqi tank and blew up himself and the tank’s occupants. His highly decorated grave is in the graveyard of martyrs just outside Tehran, which Baer visits. “Like the city of the dead” he says.

Baer points out that the suicide of such martyrs was different from today’s in that it was a battlefield strategy in an often gruesome trench war. Those Iranians who knowingly killed themselves would have done so in conditions where death or serious injury was a likelihood anyway, and for a cause around which an entire nation was rallying.

That seems more comparable to the Kamikaze pilots of World War II than to Al-Qaeda style attacks today, where a bunch of middle-class students in Hamburg or in Leeds, who were not part of any war and who had everything to live for, spent months plotting their own suicides, planning spectacular attacks on Western targets such as on September 11 in New York and in London last July.

Murder in the Family: Honor Killing in America

Exposing Muslim Honor Killings in America

Special thanks to Brian Gaffney.

For two years, Fox News has been investigating the short lives and violent deaths of Texas teenagers Amina and Sarah Said.

The sisters were riddled with bullets in their dad’s borrowed taxi cab on New Year’s Day 2008. As 911 operators listened in, Sarah appeared to name her father as the killer — her dying words: “Help! Help! My dad shot me… and now I’m dying!”

This kind of crime isn’t supposed to happen in America’s heartland — an honor killing.

Honor killings are when a father, husband or brother kills a wife, daughter or sister because he thinks she has “shamed” the family. The United Nations has found such murders are all too common in Muslim lands. Now they are happening here.

How and why?

Through exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage, Fox News exposes the implications of this shocking case.

How good is this guy?

Well, here’s a tiny selection of audience feedback from a few people who Pat Condell says are “less than pleased with some of my opinions” … thereby demonstrating that he must be doing something right!

Message fo ryou.

Listen, BUDDY, you do not know Islam. Islam is a religion of peace. Prophet Mohammad ( … ) preached peace. He was all about peace. That is why he wrote Koran himself. The entire Koran was hand written by Mohammad, even though he was illiterate, but you see he was chosen by Allah, so he was the chosen one, the one and only true messenger of Allah. So it is in fact Allah\’s own words that are in Koran, and Koran is full of peaceful teachings, I know this because I am a follower of Koran and I read it like 15 times a day, so I know it well. You have insulated Islam and now I will have to KILL you. I wish death upon you for mocking such a peaceful religion. I will pray for a violent death for you.

Allah hu Akbar

Do You Know What Textbooks Your Children are Really Reading?

The Second grade reading curriculum now requires a book about gay penguins

The Second grade reading curriculum now requires a book about gay penguins

Presented with the kind permission of Fox News Channel.

Hosted by Tucker Carlson

Fox News Reporting investigated the $10 billion dollar-a-year textbook industry and how the drive to be politically correct might be taking over American schools.

Host Tucker Carlson, asked experts, teachers, publishers and parents the same question: “Do you know what is inside your children’s textbooks?” From kindergarten through college, we found staggering errors and omissions which may be pushing agendas, hidden and otherwise.

We spoke to the author of “The Language Police,” education historian Diane Ravitch, who said textbook publishers censor images or words they deem to be controversial in children’s textbooks. She told us that publishers pander to special interest groups, and assemble bias and sensitivity review committees. These committees decide what words to ban or redefine, and even what images are deemed offensive.

And we examined some college textbooks both in print and in digital forms. We found a glaring mistake in an expensive history book written by Alan Brinkley, Provost at New York’s Columbia University.

And in Fairfax County Virginia, questions remain about what textbooks are used in the private Islamic Saudi Academy. The ISA teaches about 1000 students each year pre-K — 12. Questions have been raised about its textbooks at least since 2006.

This summer, Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, ISA’s 1999 valedictorian, was sentenced to life in prison for his role in a 2002 Al Qaeda plot to assassinate President George W. Bush.

The ISA is wholly owned by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and teaches students from textbooks, which according to a report by a Saudi scholar interviewed by Fox News, continues to “propagate an ideology of hate to the unbeliever.” Fox News Reporting obtained some of their current 2008-2009 textbooks which were supposed to be purged of inflammatory language. We found proof otherwise.

We tracked down two American college professors who were paid by the ISA to review these textbooks. They signed a letter obtained by Fox News that the ISA’s 2008-2009 textbooks “do not contain inflammatory material…” One of them sat down for an interview; the other refused.

And in California’s Alameda County, our cameras were there as parents were embroiled in a heated debate over a mandatory curriculum designed to teach students from grades K-5 about different types of families, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lifestyles. After a vote by the Alameda Unified School District in May of this year, the second grade reading curriculum now requires a book about gay penguins.

Fox News Reporting examines what is really inside children’s textbooks.

Americans Held Hostage In Iran

Some of the 52 US citizens held hostage for 444 days by Iran

Presented with the kind permission of Fox News Channel.

“On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren hosts “Fox News Reporting: Americans Held Hostage in Iran” on Fox News Channel. This hour-long exclusive Fox News documentary commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis.

On November 4, 1979, America had its first showdown with radical Islam when the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran was stormed by students hoping to stage a three-day sit-in. Initially, the Islamist students’ intent was to protest America’s decision to allow the exiled Shah of Iran to enter the United States for medical treatment. Instead, the ordeal became 444 days of hostage hell for 52 Americans.

In this watershed moment in American history, Fox News talks to key players in the crisis and examines how President Jimmy Carter struggled to resolve the crisis in an election year. Among those interviewed include: Former Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher; Fox News contributor Bob Beckel, who was Deputy Assiatant to the President during the crisis; White House Chief of Staff James Baker. Several of the hostages, who were released as Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president in January 1981, also relive their frightening days in captivity.
