Format: Hardcover
Professor Ramadan is, in my view, a very good man. He is one of the strongest supporters of human rights in the western world, he is a major scholar contributing to a growing intellectual movement to reinterpret the Quran in light of such aspects as human rights, and though my description of him does not completely satisfy his persona, he is a major western intellectual, an intellectual who brings an interesting perspective to such fields such as western philosophy.

I strongly believe that virtually all current criticism of Professor Ramadan is severely undue and I believe it is quite harmful in perpetuating Islamophobic and indirectly racist stereotypes. In addition, the main premise of this book seems to be based around the accusation that Professor Ramadan is somehow a two tongued liar, when in reality he is a very kind and gentle man whose intentions are only to contribute to the good in the world.

Finally, I want to point out that the very values that individuals such as Caroline Fourest claim to defend, the so-called "Western values," they are not actually defending at all, but rather are contributing to the suffocation of these same values which they claim to cherish and protect. First of all, it is an established fact that civilizations are always changing, people will move in and people will move out, and the people who move in will of course bring their values along with them. Therein lies a key principle of what has contributed to the intellectual growth and flourishing of Western civilization: a proclivity towards openness and a desire to discover the truth.

TARIQ RAMADAN was interviewed and the results posted on a Pew research website.

[...]

If you get a chance, read Ramadan's answers -- they don't say much, and in some cases don't make sense. He seems to claim that Apostacy is not a crime punishable by death in the last few sentences, part of the obfuscation and word salad that this fellow spews out hoping nobody will challenge him, since his arguments are not logical, not even based on fact.

He is, in a word, an apologist for Islam, trying to befuddle those who see Islam as an intolerant religion.

76 of 116 people found the following review helpful By Seth J. Frantzman HALL OF FAME on February 10, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Tariq Ramadan is always shown to be the good face of 'moderate European Islam' and he is trotted out, or rather trots himself out, everytime there is some question about the ability of Europe to swallow and assimilate its millions of Muslim immigrants. A passionate defender of Muslims he pretends that Islamism is but a tiny minority and that Islam and European civilization can go hand in hand. But despite having been born in moderate and tolerant Switzerland he learned none of the nuetrality of that country. Instead as this book shows he speaks with two mouths: one to Europeans and Westerners and another to his fellow Muslims in Arabic

In fact Ramadan is a practitioner of 'Taqieh', the Muslim Shiite idea that is defined as "to hide the truth is the ultimate art of a Moslem" according to Interruptions. This book does the reader of the service of translating what he says in Arabic and showing that it does not jive with what he says in English and what is often quoted in English language media.

A fascinating expose that will surely startle anyone familiar with this influential individual.

Much needed book exposing Tariq Ramadan who is indeed doublespeak in different platforms. His first DISSERTATION JURY resigned and then his political friends found another jury to give him his so-called doctorate.

Format: Hardcover
*Tariq Ramadan is an adept at delivering reassuring speeches and interviews to the public at large: it gets to hear what it wants to hear.
*This while he promotes ideas harmful to liberty, equality, and fraternity the rest of the time!
*The book is very interesting and very complete. Lots of details.
*If you want some proof of his deceitful behavior before you buy this, Google him for his very recent (April 12, 2010) CNN television interview with Christiane Amanpour.
You can see and hear him dodging the outright condemnation of the stoning of women!!! (Also visit Wikipedia if you want more juice.)
*The ideology this guy promotes can only fracture a society in two, causing fatal enmity and conflict.

Should the reader be a person who does not care for Ramadan Tariq's Muslim Brotherhood split-tongued approach to the world you will enjoy this book. If you are a reader who believes he can do no wrong you won't enjoy discovering Tariq's slick underside as exposed to the world.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Michael on February 4, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Fourest exposes Tariq Ramadan and his deeply camuflated radicalism. Ramadan's intolerant and radical rhetoric is well known to any diligent observer of public debates. What he does is an attempt to demonize the West and idealization of Islam. The book catches all the radical stances of the Ramadan and confront them with his superficial posture of moderation and progressiveness.
