The social and economic changes taking place all over the world are spreading anxiety and fear among ordinary people everywhere. It is a fear that is being eagerly exploited by extremist forces on the right.

Powerful as they are, these newly established organizations are conducting hate campaigns against an entire religion, Islam, which they have singled out as their prime target. The result is racism, mayhem and even murder, not infrequently with innocent passers-by as the tragic victims. But who are these anti-Islamists?

Over the last few months an NRK team has undertaken a searching study of the principal protagonists in an endeavour to determine their aims and motivation

The team has covered attempts by the English Defence League and ideological leaders of equally virulent American organizations to organize rallies and demonstrations in Scandinavia.In this programme we meet anti-Islamists who, allegedly on behalf of Christianity and the white races, expend large sums of money on a range of measures expressly designed to stir up trouble. For the first time viewers are brought face to face with many of those responsible and afforded an unparalleled opportunity to hear what they have to say.
