First of all 2 Thumbs up and 5 Stars for this totally, TOTALLY veracious book! WE all must commend Mr. Findley for having the courage, the valor, and the indefatigableness to write indeed such an eye-opening book! I was hesitant at first, like many people to pick up and read this book. At that moment, I don't think I was ready to smash and break my old prejudice about Islam. But after reading the back of the book and the author I knew this book had something to offer. And after finally finishing the book I can proudly say that indeed now my eyes are opened and I hope, I SINCERELY HOPE this myth-shattering, very well articulated book is read by ALL of my fellow Americans. If we really consider overselves fair and open-minded, this book will be our test. IT SURE WAS MINE!! I mean there was an old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover!" And no where in my life has this saying applied more than NOW. I don't know May be, just maybe, WE will be able to judge more fairly and objectively one of the largest faith in the world after reading this book. Then we will also be able to answer "Is this great religion and its followers a bunch of terrorists?" more fairly.

Before I read this book, all I had thought was that many muslims were terrorists or supported terrorism.(I got most of these ideas from watching movies like Executive descision and others) After I read this book I was stunned, such a rich, diverse and extraordinary religion, the Veil or Hejab that women wear in my opinion was wrong I thought at the time, no more I see it so much differently after I read this book. It's about respect, I also read other books after this one about Sharia(Islamic Law) and I found more examples of respect towards women, such as rape, in Sharia a rapist is swiftly given death, no man can touch a woman without her consent. It got me thinking afterwards and I also read up on religions and world statistics, Islam is the second largest religion in the world today with 1.3billion followers, it is also the fastest growing, and soon will be the largest. Most of the converts in the U.S. are women. in the past 2 years there have been many great documentaries that clear up misconseptions of this religion. The most notable was Islam: Empire of faith, excellent film. I urge people not to judge this religion based on what you see in the movies, look into it, talk with muslim people, read the english translation of the Quran if you can. Get this book, it will teach you alot. I'd like to thank Mr. Findley for this excellent book.

As a Muslim growing up in the USA, it has always been hard for me to be named a terrorist everytime I read the paper or turn on the television.
Although many of these facts are known by the Islamic community, which has written about the prejudice and bias against Islam, no book until now was available for all Americans to read. In his book, Paul Findley, described as "First class" (Christian Science Monitor) and "Straightforward and valid" (Washington Post), confronts, as well as explains the false images of Islam and Muslims in America throughout the past few decades.
I certainly believe this is one of those books that must be read, not only for the Muslims that are desperate to get a brake, but also for the Americans who think to themselves after Headline News; "How can this religion have over one billion followers if it's about blowing up everything they see?"
Hopefully, this book will have great positive effect on Americans and their idea of Islam...

I recommend reading this book with an open mind. It is a real challenge to put the years of media and political bias aside and actually accept information that is different from the steady diet of pro-Israeli rhetoric that we are exposed to daily. We learn that Muslims are relatively new in the US and prior to that the only Muslims in the US were the black Muslims and perhaps that is why we know little to nothing of what is really going on in that part of the world. The Pro-Israeli Christian fundamentalists and the Israelis have had a huge head start to spread their views, virtually unchallenged until now. The book is excellent in explaining why this situation will take time to change but more importantly it presents very constructive and acute ways to expedite this needed change...otherwise seemingly normal headlines or words that were read or heard from the media will be exposed for what they really are, unjust and hurtful towards our fellow Muslim and Arab brothers and sisters. Unfortunately the major events of this last week has made time a luxury that no one can afford. An important and worthwhile book!

As an American Muslim, this book is a much needed resource for Muslims and Non Muslims in seeing the truth behind the constructed anti-Islam/anti-Muslim hysteria prevalent in America and the West. The best thing to combat misinformation and stereotypes is through correct knowledge and resources regarding the subject. This book written by a former Congressman of 22 years, has personally talked to and been in the political circle of United States with regards to Foriegn policy and other aspects. He tackles the Media, government's, and educational negative bias toward Islam and refutes it remarkably.
