59 of 70 people found the following review helpful By M. A. Khan on February 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
I am listing a few comments from readers ( [...] ):

1. Prof. Sami Alrabaa (Germany), author of 'Karin in Saudi Arabia':

"I read your book and found it fascinating. It is one of those few books which everybody, Muslims and non-Muslims, must read. It is objective and balanced. For example, when you discuss how moderates interpret Jihad and how radical/militant Muslims interpret it.

"Islamic Jihad" is a comprehensive reference which entails in detail lots of facts about Islam and its prophet, in historical and current times. It is very well documented. All that makes it a must read to all of those who want to understand the driving force behind Jihad and terror."

2. Dr. Mervyn Brendle, James Cook University (Australia):

"I have read some sections and... look forward to reading it in some detail. It appears to be a substantial addition to the vital work underway in expanding our understanding of the history, nature, and danger of the global jihadi movement."

3. Ibn Warraq, author of 'Why I Am Not a Muslim':

"This book, I believe, will be a very important contribution for making a thorough understanding of the rising challenges both Muslim and non-Muslim world faces from Islamic extremists."

4. Nonie Darwish, author of 'Now They Call Me Infidel':

"This is a must read book, very important and eloquently written, that sheds light on the violent imperialist nature of jihad: a main doctrine in Islam that can only be accomplished at the expense of violating human rights of non-Muslims as well as Muslims."

With this book, M A Khan joins the ranks of luminaries like Ibn Warraq, Ali Sina, Bat Yeor and Geert Wilders.
Thank you, Mr. Khan.

Format: Paperback
Very good as either reference material or an eye-opener to those not already "islam-litterate". Should be required for those in the mainstream media reporting on anything involving islam, as typically they have no clue.

M. A. Kahn knows the culture and history, as he grew up in it, then got a taste of life outside the islamic world, and thus the freedom and opportunity tht is not present in the islamic world. I'ts also clear that English is not his 1st language, hence my observation that it is not well written. He also presents with a sledgehammer approach - example after example.

And the information is good enough to overlook those shortcomings. I recommend it.

I have studied a lot of history, but never had I been informed about this entire era of Islamic expansion by violent savagery. Why is it not taught in our schools? I found the book fascinating, and I did a lot of cross checking to make sure it was accurate. It appears to be correct!

Format: Hardcover
I've read a number of books on Islam, its history and the challenges it confronts to freedom and civilization. Khan's excellent, richly detailed account is one of the best. He artfully, carefully demolishes so many apologist myths it's as if one's left with a clear vision of this horrific warlord and his legacy of ruin for the first time. Just the histories of Islam's predations in India and the true scope of Islamic slavery are worth reading this as soon as possible. But there's so much more. Impeccably sourced. Thank you, Mr. Khan!

10 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Michael A. Johnson on April 20, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Generally very good. Lots of specifics, especially in the front where all the evil in the name of Allah is traced back directly to Mohammad. His rage at being persecuted (i.e. they ignored him) led to his wars and assasinations on everyone who disagreed with him on anything. Followed by hundreds of years of unprovoked invasions, slaughter, mass slavery and todays's massive coverups of said mass murder and slavery. However the writing style should have been edited by someone else. Every other page has syntax or grammar errors, or left out words. Most places you just glide on through, automatically filling in missing words or putting words in the right order in a sentence in your mind as you read. But once in a while you have to read a sentence two or three times to really get it. I also wonder which translation of the Bible he read to get the interpretation of Matthew 18:25. "For example, Jesus advised people in debt to sell themselves along with their family menbers into slavery to pay up."

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ego Sum Veritas on November 25, 2013
Format: Paperback
A truly eye-opening book. "The religion of peace"? Not so fast. Reality and the history of Islam completely destroy this and other false perceptions of Islam. Khan deftly peels back the thin facade of humanity covering Islam's theologically fascist core. He explains with clarity how the Qur'an, Haddiths, and the example of Mohammed have shaped Islam into an imperialistic oppressive beast since its founding. The theological imperatives of Islam are counter to any humanist/secular society. Islam aggressively seeks to create an Islamic world void of anything else, they will even destroy ancient non-Muslim sites to this end. This type of behavior is now being seen on a daily basis in most parts of the world. A large part of the book focuses on Islam's history in India, and the horrors and ruin it unleashed against the Hindus and Buddhists. A must read for anyone wishing to see the truth and not some watered-down fairy tale of the "theology"of Islam. It is time to understand that Islam is not our friend, but an invader which seeks to dominate. Are there Muslims who can be good friends? Yes, absolutely. But the tenets of the religion are intolerant and should not be tolerated by anyone.
