If you are not a Muslim you should still know what the Sira and the Koran actually say. If you want to hold an informed opinion about Islam, terrorism, etc. knowing the Koran, Sira, and Hadith, is critical and the Center for Political Islam offers the easiest path to a solid understanding of Islam.
The great thing about the Simplified Koran is that it has excerpts from the life of Muhammad, this Sira, so you know the context of what was going on in his life when he got these revelations, and every paragraph is referenced, so you can look it up online. The references are critical. You will find yourself with many WTF moments when reading. Going to Wiki Islam or other online sources may only compound your sense that the prophet was perhaps a crazy megalomaniac. Islam requires a certain cognitive dissidence where you have to hold as true multiple contradictory ideas. There are also just plain bizarre things that are not explained like the two giant transparent women in paradise.
Know that most Muslims have a very sketchy understanding of Islam. Islam means submission and the only important thing is that Muslims all submit to Islam, and that we, non-Muslims, submit to Muslims.
Islam is both the peaceful Islam of Mecca, and the violent Islam of Median. Islam is a series of tactics to gain supremacy over the world. 1) Be peaceful and gain acceptance and tolerance, 2) Gradually get concessions to Islam, bit by bit. 3) Take over 4) Eliminate the Heretics and Apostates. This is the program Muhammad followed first in Median and then later in Mecca. In this way Muhammad became the richest and most powerful man in the region, had 11 wives including 9 year old Aisha, while breaking every one of the 10 commandments.
Know that Muhammad is the prophet of Allah, and the Ideal man, and you will be "The best of people". Rejecting this message makes you the "Worst of people", entitled to no rights under Islam.
If you know little about Islam a good place to start is:

If you really want to know about Islam read this Sira and read the Simplified Koran.
This book will be on my desk from not on. I will thumb through it often to find specific passages for referral. This little book has already helped me a lot.
