From the Inside Flap
In this shocking tell-all, Raymond Ibrahim documents the appalling sufferings of Christians from Morocco to Indonesia, from Turkey to Nigeriaeverywhere, in fact, that Islamic Sharia and the culture it has shaped hold sway. Ibrahim, a Coptic Christian born and raised in America by Egyptian parents, uses his fluent Arabic, his thorough knowledge of Muslim sources, and his contacts in Christian communities across the Islamic world to uncover the truth about the outrageous abuse Christians undergo on a daily basis and to expose and explain the otherwise unfathomable indifference of Western academia, media, and government to the greatest human rights abuse crisis of our time.
In Crucified Again, you'll learn:
The real source of Muslim violence toward Christians (it's not about race, nationality, or economics)
Why Muslims cannot tolerate Christian worship and Christian freedom
The remarkable consistency in the Muslim persecution of Christians across centuries and continents
The myth of historical Muslim "tolerance"and how it got started
Why Islamic persecution of Christians is getting worse
This gripping book tells the unreported story of Christians under Muslim oppression with passion and utterly convincing detail.

During the communist menace, Lenin famously spoke of the "useful idiots" in the West who do their work and become their apologists. We have plenty of those today when it comes to Islam. But fortunately we have had those who sounded the alarm about the ideology of bloodshed and death communism was.
Solzhenitsyn of course produced his famous Gulag Archipelago, documenting the hellhole of life in the Soviet Union for dissenters, non-conformists and political prisoners. And there was Armando Valladares' Against All Hope, the horrific account of his 22 years in Cuban prisons for standing up for freedom.
Fortunately we have the modern-day equivalent describing life under totalitarian Islam, and how Christians are being horribly persecuted by this political ideology. It should be a wakeup call to anyone under the illusion that Islam is a religion of peace, and that there are just a few bad eggs spoiling an otherwise nice religion.
Of course the useful idiots said the same thing about communism. They had their heads in the sand and refused to believe that communism was an evil ideology that can only be sustained by violence and murder. Islam is no different: it is a religion of the sword. It spread by military conquest and it exists by terror and oppression.
While there is plenty of ugly persecution going on in the world, it is Islam which leads the way. Says Ibrahim, "The ratio of Muslims to Christians in any given country is the primary factor explaining which countries see the most and the least Christian persecution."
And in this important book we find a blow by blow description of all the incessant and diabolical persecution of Christians taking place around the Islamic world. Although Christians have always felt the wrath of the followers of Islam, it seems that things have really hotted up in recent times.
Whether it is the Sudan, or Egypt, or Syria, or Nigeria, or Turkey, or Morocco, or Indonesia, the amount of suffering, persecution, torture and death is simply overwhelming. As such, this is not a pleasant book to read, but it is a most necessary book to read.
In 300 pages we find it all: the rapes, the beatings, the burnings, the bombings, the acid attacks, the honour killings, the lootings, the churches destroyed, the homes razed, the villages decimated, and countless lives lost. And what is so important about this book is the fact that most of this you will never hear about from the mainstream media in the West.
Not only do most media elites in the West share the same hatred of America, Israel and the West as do so many Muslims, but even if they did want to actually cover these stories, and report fairly, most of it is hidden from them. But Ibrahim, who is fluent in Arabic, is able to carefully and daily monitor the Arabic media to find out firsthand what is taking place.
He simply translates the stories from Arabic media outlets, and presents them on his website - and here - since most of the MSM refuses to cover this persecution. And of course Hollywood and academia are just as guilty of the deliberate whitewashing of Islam and its sustained assault on Christians and Christianity.
That is why you will hardly ever hear of imams calling for the death of Christians, the destruction of all churches, and the total take-over of the free West. These calls are being made all the time in Arabic, but our media is either unaware of them or chooses to ignore them.
So both the big picture (Islam's openly declared war against the West and Christianity) and the smaller picture (stories of individual persecution and terror) are routinely missed by the MSM. But ignorance of Arabic is no excuse here. There are getting to be almost as many atrocities committed in the West by Muslims as in Muslim lands.
As Ibrahim remarks, this manifests itself "wherever significant numbers of Muslims live side by side with non-Muslims". Thus he has plenty of horror stories from within the West as well. Consider the Muslim child-rape gang in the UK.
Islam views non-Muslim women and children as objects of sexual gratification, and so it should not be surprising that "pillars of their community" were recently found guilty of horrific child sex abuse. In Liverpool five victims (the youngest just thirteen) were plied with alcohol and drugs and "passed around" a group of men aged 24 to 59 for sex in apartments, taxis, and kebab shops.
But the bulk of this book deals with the mind-numbing violence and slaughter of believers in Muslim-majority countries. Sub-Saharan Africa is certainly a major site of jihad on churches, and Nigeria is especially a tragic place. In September 2011 for example, Muslims hacked to death thousands of Christians, including many children and pregnant women. A 79-year-old Christian woman had her throat slit in her home.
In April 2012 Muslim attackers set upon a church service, throwing explosives and opening fire as worshippers attempted to flee. In December of that year four more churches were torched and ten Christians murdered. Twenty houses were burned and other churches assaulted, all to the cries of "Allahu Akbar!"
I can recount such horror stories for hours on end here. But why should I, when it is all found in this book. You must get this book. You must read it. You must let it wake you to the tragic truth that there is a war going on, and your faith makes you the enemy of Islam.
Muslim activists have vowed to kill you and destroy your faith. It is simply not good enough to just sit by and pretend it is not happening. The truth is out there. It is clearly found in this vital book. And knowledge of this means you can no longer say, "I never knew".
On Amazon, the "view inside" feature should be available, however, at the time of this posting, it is just of the e-book Kindle version. This book is not a cut-and-paste posting of his various internet columns; this isn't just a collection of newspaper clippings regarding tormented Christians. Instead, it is a remarkably detailed and scholarly study [52 pages of notes alone!], of Christian persecution (and at times near genocidal assault) throughout the Islamic world (as well as in countries where Muslims have a strong presence).
In Part 1: "Lost History": the author noted how that within the first couple hundred years of Muhammad's jihad the Muslim umma islamiya had conquered half of the Christian world. The author purveys Muhammad's holy book, the Qur'an, for ayat that justify the superiority of Muslims to conquer non-Muslim al-dhimma.
Part 2: "Islam's War On Christian Worship": Here the author discusses the Islamic jurisprudence (usul al-fiqh) for justifying Islamist curtailment of non-Muslim houses of worship, as well as the chastisement of their congregation. Today's attacks against Christian churches can be traced back 1,400 years ago to the Muslim conqueror of Jerusalem `The Conditions of Omar' (p. 33), and as expounded upon by other 14th Century Islamist theologians (p. 35).
Part 3: "Islam's War On Christian Freedom": the author reviews the history of Muhammad (al-insan al-kamil) ordering the killing of those who mocked him (p. 101), and how this developed the notion of blasphemy (tashif), whereby those who publicly question Islamic beliefs can be killed, as well as Christian proselytizers (dai'ya). The author recounts many accounts of Islamist attacks against Christians throughout the world [Caution: not for the fain-of-heart: there are 14 pages of full-color photographs of burned churches and many brutally butchered Christians, pp. 130+].
Part 4: "Climate of Hate": Herein the author details how Muslim governments "plant and nourish the seeds of hate" against non-Muslims.
Part 5: "See No Evil, Hear No Evil": The author explains why liberal academia and media "whitewash Islam and blame the West" for Islamic attacks against non-Muslims. Not a book with a happy ending. [Also see an important companion book: "Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians" by P. Marshall, et. al. (March 2013)].
In Islam, there is no loving your neighbor as yourself or turning the other check where the “kafir” are involved (i.e., non-Muslims who have rejected Allah and Muhammad.) The “kafir” deserve punishment by Muslims in this life and by Allah in the next life. The persecution of Christians by Muslims isn’t a result of Western imperialism or colonialism as many Muslim apologists and self-hating Westerners think. Muslim persecution of Christians runs deeper than that. Muslims persecute Christians because the Christians are…Christians. They’re infidels, enemies of Allah, Muhammad, and the Islamic community, the result being that Christians and other "kafir” must be humiliated and feel themselves subdued under Sharia. Or worse.
That’s what this book is about: Muslim supremacy and Muslim persecution of Christians. Page after page after page. This reviewer could only read a few pages at a time. Again, it was painful to read. Page after page after page...
Readers would also like “Jenna’s Flaw,” a novel about the death of God, the crumbling of Western civilization, and how to save it.
