Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an important book because it helps the reader understand how the term 'Islam' is being bandied about to cover up, rather than to reveal, the truth of the global injustices that have created a culture of violence on this precious earth. I salute these women for their courage!"

Cheryl Benard, from the RAND Corporation said it well, I approached this volume with some hope. As an anthology compiled and edited by a scholar, and describing itself as containing a diversity of texts from a wide range of views and employing a wide range of media from editorials and religious musings to poetry, I hoped it might by virtue of range alone take us beyond the widespread tedious reiterations on this subject. If it did not shatter the stereotypes, at least it might break a cliché or two, I thought.

It was not to be.

We start with a foreword in which the prominent if somewhat overexposed Egyptian dissident, physician, author, and feminist Nawal el-Saadawi elaborates for us her fantasy: that she is a suicide bomber, killing George Bush and "all Arab leaders around him." She next shares her approach to newspapers she dislikes: "I spit on the first page." (I'll have to try that--usually I just cancel my subscription.)

Then, the editor opens the volume with her own essay, "Unholy Alliances: Zionism, U.S. Imperialism, and Islamic Fundamentalism." As she is a professor of English at Montclair University, she can be held accountable for her choice of words, which conform to a tractate but not to a serious volume. If you are planning to refute your opponents' arguments substantively, you do not refer to them with a phrase such as "the likes of." E.g.: "Many ... limited, and in my opinion spurious, analyses (written and promoted by the likes of Bernard Lewis, Daniel Pipes, etc.) need to be challenged for obvious reasons."
