The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America is part of a series of films produced by Rabbi Raphael Shore of the Clarion Fund, a front for the far right Aish HaTorah. According to investigative journalist Eli Clifton, the film was 'designed to stir up a climate of fear in the United States in the weeks before the presidential election' and its Islamophobic and conspiratorial undertones echo 'one of the most influential and persistent conspiracy theories of all time. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion'.[1]

In 2012 the film was shown during a counter-terrorism training session to New York City Police Department officers.
