A must-see film addresses the growing threats to the West


Gloria Z. Greenfield

The new Central Florida Chapter of the Zionist Organization of America will host the screening of the hard-hitting documentary film, "Fight of Our Lives: Defeating the Ideological War Against the West," followed by Q&A with director/producer Gloria Z. Greenfield at its first community event on June 19, 7:30 p.m., at Congregation Ohev Shalom.

"The Fight of Our Lives" opens with a warning from historian Niall Ferguson, "Civilizations, empires, great powers can fall apart very fast. Collapse can come quickly, like a thief in the night."

The film addresses the threats-both internal and external-facing Western civilization today.

Greenfield's works center around anti-Semitism, history, Judeo-Christian values, freedom and democracy. Her previous work includes "Body and Soul-The State of the Jewish Nation" in 2014, "Unmasked Judeophobia" in 2011, and The Case for Israel-Democracy's Outpost" in 2009. She is the president of Doc Emet.

Mark Tapson, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and a featured speaker in the film, wrote in Frontpage Mag, "With 'The Fight of Our Lives,' Gloria Greenfield has created a riveting and disturbing, but ultimately enlightening and inspirational, clarion call for the Western world to wake up and reverse its decadent course before it's too late. Its urgent message is one that deserves as wide an audience as possible."

The documentary features observations and insights from well-known historians, journalists, and thinkers such as Ferguson, Alan Dershowitz, Melanie Phillips, Alan West, and many more respected commentators from academia, human rights organizations, and think tanks.

"In the film, Niall Ferguson recalls Edmund Burke's observation that civilization is a pact between the dead, the living, and the yet unborn," stated Tapson. "I cannot stress enough how important it is to view 'The Fight of Our Lives,' take its message to heart, and honor that pact by standing up when and where you can in defense of the West."   

This event is open to the public and free of charge. Congregation Ohev Shalom is located at 613 Concourse parkway S, Maitland.
