Patrick Sookhdeo is well aware of the global terror campaign. But he is also aware that there is much more to this struggle than just suicide bombers. There are theological, political, moral and ideological issues as well. Thus this book is not entitled "Global Terror," for that would give a misleading impression of what this battle is really all about. Terrorism is simply one facet of a multi-lateral approach to achieving Islamic supremacy around the world.

Sookhdeo is eminently qualified to speak on this subject. Indeed, he was born into a Muslim household in South America (although now he is a Christian residing in London). He has spent his life studying Islam and the jihadists. He is more than familiar with Islamic history, theology, culture and practice.

In this substantial volume of nearly 700 pages, Sookhdeo examines how the global Islamic challenge is being manifest, and how it can be withstood. He looks primarily at the theology and beliefs of Islam, and argues that only a major reform of Islam itself can really turn things around.

While many are happy to believe that "Islam is peace," the truth lies elsewhere. In fact, the radical Islamists are not some aberration to Islamic belief and practice, but are really an integral part of it. Many people nonetheless want to distinguish between Islamist terrorism and Islamic terrorism.

"However this is really a meaningless distinction," says Sookhdeo. "Islamism is simply the essence of classical Islam, and violence and terror are found within both of them." Although the major sources of Islam provide the inspiration for terror, that does not mean that all Muslims are terrorists. Most Muslims in fact reject the jihadists.

This book is highly recommended for anyone wanting a concise overview of the tight, inseparable relationship between the fascist Islamic ideology and Jihad - the form of Jihad that is most often referred to in the Islamic trilogy: violent, brutal, often suicidal Jihad against non-Muslim infidels and supposed apostate Muslims. There is also political, social, legal and economic jihad that rounds out the Islamic package of intolerant, supremacist incompatibility with the civilized world.

Jihad in Islam is a nuanced subject at the best of times. The fact that the vast majority of this book is an compendium of secondary and tertiary sources is a proof that Sookhdeo either is incapably of going back to the early sources of Islam, perhaps due to the fact that he does not understand the Arabic language, or because he knows that doing so will expose his agenda, which it seems is to demonise Muslims and misrepresent their religion. A case in point is his claim that Muslims demarcate the world into two basic spheres: darul islam (abode of Islam) and darul harb (abode of war). In his 600+ pages, however, he does not once mention the most well known and obvious category, which in reality is the correct opposite of darul Islam, and that is, darul kufr (abode of disbelief). He even mentions some of the more obscure and relatively unknown sub-categories, and yet fails to mention this. Why? The reason is quite obvious: the main thrust of the book is to give the false impression to readers that Islam is a violent religion that inculcates in its adherents a violent and war-like mindset. In showing that in reality Muslims view the world as either abodes of areas of Islam and non-Islam, exposes this. Being a so-called academic, it is unforgivable that he fails to mention this category when all it takes is a simple Google search for any non-academic to come across. There is an excellent refutation of this book by the journalist Hamza Bajwa of The Muslim Weekly at: [...], which I would strongly recommended everyone purchase before wasting their time in reading this third-rate and misrepresentative book.
