About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Jasser, who served as a medical officer in the United States Navy, is the founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD). His organization attempts to hinder the attraction of young American Muslims to Islamic jihad while advocating the possibility of combining Islamic piety with acceptance of and support of American secular, constitutional law.
Jasser likes America, and his love of this country was passed on to him by his father and grandfather, who dreamed of freedom and democracy in their country of origin, Syria--dreams that were never realized. They imparted to Zuhdi an understanding of Islam that has room for reason and an acceptance of government that is not tied to Islam (i.e. Sharia law). He writes of being brought up with an Islam that emphasized kindness, tolerance, and the exercise of reason. He takes issue with the other Islam--that of the Salafi extremists and "Islamists"--which seeks to impose Sharia law on other societies by whatever means necessary, be they violent or more subtle forms of cultural invasion and transformation. He admits that many allegedly "moderate" Muslims are actually activists and revolutionaries who disingenuously pose as "reasonable" and culturally assimilated.Read more ›
