I wouldn't recommend that readers stop with just this book. There are many other readable books on the market that will round out the subject for newbies and make them into tolerably good defenders of Western philosophy, which is under attack by the Muslim hordes (and on American university campuses).
This is the sort of book that the youth of America should be reading (and which they are highly unlikely to be directed to at American universities). Many non-Muslims are prone to want to lump Islam with Christianity as one of the major religions to worship the one true God. However Islam is better described not as a religion but instead as a style of life taken up by 7th century denizens of the harsh Arabian Desert. Allah's messenger Muhammad despised Jews after they would not become his (Muhammad's) followers. That very same attitude prevails even into this present day in the minds of committed Muslims (who are legion in the world). Christians fared little better in the time of Muhammad. Westerners will be much the better and wiser for learning from Townsend and others of like mind, that Islam bears no meaningful relationship with Christianity.
Those Christians who want to believe that fellowship between them and Muslims is a reachable goal will, one hopes, be disabused of such naivety upon reading Townsend's <Nothing to do with Islam>.
Keep up the good work!!
This book, is in line with other authors investigating Islam and the many violent deeds done in its name, like Dr. Bill Warner, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Walid Shoebat, and more. In short, the truth is being revealed and none too soon.
Just three or so years ago it was easy for proponents of Islam to put on a nicey nicey program by essentially misleading the audience with quotes from the Mecca portion of the Quran, saying the word Islam comes from the same stem word as peace, etc. BS to schmooze the innocent. No longer.
Top international reviews
Kill those who do not practice the faith hard enough. Force those you don't kill into making payments and a life of humiliation / violence - the list goes on and on and on and Mr Townsend quotes it chapter and verse from the Muslims holy book and takes no prisoners from the apologists who would try to hide or cover these matters up.
He thereby draws the obvious conclusion that Islam is a violent invading religion and contains none of the live/let live, turn the other cheek verses or fables typical of almost all other religions. That jihad is repeatedly demanded of all good Muslims and this is apparent in there behaviour from national internal violence to bloody borders of muslim nations to their neighbours to global terrorism currently focused on the west. He is excellent at dismissing the older often quoted peaceful verses in the Qur'an (Muslim scholars ALL agree older verses are over ruled by newer ones.) None of the newer verses have any shred of peace or tolerance about them - not a single one.
An excellent read.
The governing authorities and reporting media in the west are terrified of tackling this problem as they do not want to break the rules of political correctness and like to portray themselves as “decent, compassionate human beings”.
Wake up western world and educate yourselves, learn all you can about the Islamic faith so you cannot be fooled and blinded by the spin from the cowards that run our countries. This book is a good place to start and remember knowledge is power.
This book is so truthful and factual that I’m surprised someone hasn’t tried to have it banned. This book is essential reading in my opinion.
But as is the case with Christianity, so the fundamentals are not the whole picture. There have been numerous periods when Christians (of varying sects), Muslims (ditto) and other faiths have lived harmoniously alongside one another without anyone wishing to immediately slaughter their neighbours. That proves there is an alternative Islamic tradition to the one portrayed here. Christians have happily slaughtered one another in the name of their versions of the very same teachings, and we know Muslims have very similar - and equally destructive - schisms. It is hardly new to observe that organised religions have been and presumably will continue to be the root causes of more wars and suffering than mere greed and territorial conflicts.
This is not examined, and nor are the periods of peace. Nevertheless, if one bears this in mind, this book does help one to understand in part why disturbed people will from time to time find in the Koran and allied works 'justification' for perpetrating horrific crimes against their fellow men.
I can hear it now..."You've taken it out of context" "You don't understand". What's easy to understand and hard to take out of context is the sheer hatred and contempt for non-believers at the very core of the whole religion.
islam is a totalitarian imperialist ideology, and should be viewed as such. Not welcomed into the west as if immigration without assimilation can be anything other than invasion.
