The Islamic concept of Jihad is discussed as well, which I believe will give a clearer picture to Muslims and non-Muslims because there are people who like to give only one opinion about Jihad based on their emotional leanings. On the one hand you have an extreme who view Jihad as only a war, including against innocent people and then you have the liberal extreme who only view Jihad as self improvement. There are many levels, the highest is indeed improving oneself and there is also a lesser Jihad, i.e. war against aggression and tyranny. Some Muslims tend to be apologetic about the war part, whereas if you look at the conditions laid down for Jihad, it is exceedingly humane and the book explains this.
It then talks about Islamic history when Islam was established as a political, social and legal system and spread and the justice which the Caliphs showed to the non-Muslim subjects and to the Crusaders. The justice was based on the Quran and Sunnah. The Ottoman Empire is mentioned as well where Jews lived in peace and security under the Millett System.
It then goes on to talk about some of the causes of terrorism, and that is based on mistaken ideologies such as Darwinism, Malthusian population control which gave rise to the First World War, Communism, Fascism which culminated in the slaughter of innocent people.
A stark contrast is given between Godless societies of today, which accelerates terrorism, and societies based on the Quran and Sunnah which respect people whoever they are (as was practised in the past). As we know, terrorism has no boundaries. Terrorists are found amongst Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus etc. They share a common trait which is Godlessness and rebellion against God and His messenger. Some will use religion to promote their brand of terrorism (as we see in some Muslim quarters), others fight religion and spread tyranny and oppression based on Atheism (or more accurately Darwinism...since not all Atheists are oppressors).
A compulsory read for Muslim and a challenging read for non-Muslims who view Islam to be an oppressive and barbaric system.

Also there can be no objections to the book, because it doesn't talk about an opinion, it is simply telling what Quran commands and it tells about historical facts, which can be verified by the references at the end of the book.
I hope all people who have wrong perceptions of Islam get to read this book as soon as possible and find out the truth.
We desperately need such works today, to bridge the gaps between different communities in the world, to build the peace.
It's a good book about how Islam differs from terrorism, and that the two are different (and hence it's good for non-muslims)... but I feel the author has put too simplified a view and taken two extremes... like that terrorists are people with no soul, and Islam is just a spiritual religion about morals. i.e. it seems like a very secular point of view, and that surely is a minority.
If asked if his books were credible, i would say that this particular book is not since he portrays a very apologetic and "watered down" version of Islam... but i wouldn't shrug off his other books since they are titled "Miracle of the Ant" and "Evolution Deceipt". Considering the only book of his i read was "Islam Denounces Terrorism"... i was bound to be stepping into the deep end of controversy...
Please, if you are looking for a good book to read, or brousing Harun Yahya's amazing list of books, looking for which one to read next, read this book.
It is worth every cent and has enriched my life beyond what many can imagine.
Read this book!
