As one raised in islam, I am amazed that a westerner finally gets islam & terrorist connections,
This review is from: The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (Hardcover)
As one who was raised in a muslim country in a muslim family and society, I often find books by westerners trying to describe islam through western paradigms to fail to grasp the reality of islam. Finally someone breaks through all the political correctness and presents true islam as clearly compatible with Jihad. To the surprise of many westerners, for 1300+ years, since the prophet of islam, mohammad himself practiced jihad as he took out 600+ Jews and beheaded them in front of the faithful muslim leaders following mohammad's understanding of God.
This author rightly presents the reality that many wonderful muslim neighbors do not want sharia law! They are muslim culturally because their parents were muslims, but they want to be able to walk in public with members of opposite sex, play chess, play soccer, have a drink every now & then, have fun and live a happy life. True Islamic sharia law practiced by muslims for centuries requires the mullahs or imams of the nation to tell all muslims what they can and cannot do. If mohammad can take a 6 year old girl as a bride along with his other teenage wives and concubines and slaves, then muslims are taught that it is right for all muslims. If mohammad told us to hate all nonmuslims, including his final words prior to his surprise death, that we are all to hate Christians and Jews and behead all who will not submit to sharia law, then all faithful muslims are supposed to accept mohamamad's words as divine and imitate his lifestyle.
Under modern nonrestrictive interpretations of first amendment, the author rightly points out that the mastermind of the 1993 NY bombing under Clinton, laid out his case that as a muslim religious ruler, he was free to issue Islamic fatwas to destroy the lives of innocent nonmuslims. Shockingly, ACLU & liberal westerners are falling for this argument now more than ever . Under President Bush, even the muslims who succeeded in blowing up the towers on 9/11 were given muslim freedoms to continue to read the quran and live by the islamic sharia law while in prison. Subsequently, when some of the muslims were released from American prisons, they immediately went back to fulfill their Islamic call to destroy all infidels. Sadly, under hussein obama , we have accelerated our downfall as president obama has opened the door for muslim terrorists to believe they now have the strong upper hand and multiple terrorist attacks in America only failed because of The Grace of God. Shockingly hussein obama told the world that America is one of the largest muslim nations in the world and disavowed all Christian connections of the early founders of America.
The author of this book lays out a strong logical case for the reality of islam and the fact that majority of all muslims around the world who would not personally murder others, are fully in support of the muslim jihad terrorists; and the few that do not support the Islamic sharia law but call themselves "muslim" are only culturally Islamic, while walking against Islamic law as practiced by mohammad and muslims for 1300+ years.
This book will trouble the politically correct and western minded intellectuals who do not understand islam or those who are fooled by quotes of earlier quran revelations that were abrogated/overruled by the prophet of islam himself once he had the power to establish sharia law.
Every American and westerner should read this book and look up quran and hadith and Islamic history to determine the real Islamic threat so we can deal with the problem of terrorism at its root, rather than make up false causes for muslim inspired terrorists like poverty or illiteracy. As everyone knows by now, muslim terrorists were engineers, doctors psychiatrists and professors of islam and often very well off. They simply followed the iman/faith where islam led them. For us to win the battle against terror, we must first agree on the honest root cause well documented in this book, so we can finally address the tough needed solution for peace in our lands for all people! To have our troops die on the battlefield only to then establish sharia law and even open a center to promote sharia law where 9/11 muslims succeeded is utter foolishness that will lead to the deaths of hundreds of millions of innocent around the world. Hope we wake up before that time! This book helps get us on the right starting point.

The review was interesting and useful. I don't like that Amazon does not allow us to look at contents index and index at end of book. That should be a part of all their marketing. I am relutant to buy a book without some notion of its sources of information and included information. Thanks for the good review, however.

Thanks Jim. Maybe they'll have the preview of the book up soon, but meanwhile, here is one of the greatest arabic scholars from Egypt who has documented the qur'an and islamic hadith and the wars of mohammad and islamic viewpoints better than all muslim scholars I have ever read: http://www.fatherzakaria.net/ download his books for free and look at links 35 on including 37 "Muhammad with the great ethics and assassination of his opponents" . Hope that helps complement this author's well researched understanding for you.

Is this really a review of the book in question? The book was not released until the day after this review was posted. How did the reviewer acquire and read the book?

I heard the author discussing the book yesterday in an interview and was very much intrigued. This review was the icing on the cake for me ... I'm getting the book ASAP. Having read "The Al Qaeda Reader" a few years ago, I am shocked at the ignorance of Western culture. We flat-out ignore everything ... even though terrorist groups are constanty referring to strict adherence of sharia law. They spell it out for us every step of the way. Al Qaeda states it quite simply in their doctrine: 1. convert to Islam 2. pay a Jizya or 3. face the sword. It can't be made any clearer ... you'd think SOMEONE would finally listen to what they are saying over and over again. Maybe, if more people would have read "Mein Kampf" prior to 1945 ...
I believe this over-the-top political correctness toward the issue of muslim extremism is a display of extreme arrogance ... akin to treating the issue of muslim extremism as petty and ridiculous. It also conveys an attitude that Western Society believes it can talk extremists out of their fanantical beliefs ... which one can assume would add more fuel to the fire.
Thank you for the compelling book review.

Reviews prior to publication are common as can be seen on book dust covers.

I only hope sources are cited and there is some credibility established about the claims. I only want to learn the truth, have no plans of actions being a satisfied Lutheran.

I have read the Koran and studied Islamic history from the prospective of a Catholic with a background in religious studies. I long ago concluded that if we were not careful, we would find ourselves in deep trouble with regard to Islam. If anyone is paying attention to what is happening in Europe regarding Islamic communities that managed to introduce Sharia, we should be afraid...very afraid!
I look forward to reading this book and I hope it is well documented. (Of course, we know that the "idiots" in DC are unable to read.) Then we need to let our elected representives know that we will not support any attempt by the hardcore muslim leaders to promote Sharia here in the United States of America. Freedom of religion...YES...Separation of Church and State...Yes...if the Imans want to live under Sharia Law....MOVE BACK TO THE MIDDLE EAST....we don't need you here in the United States of America.

Your review only addresses the author's discussion of Islam. What about the main premise - that Islam and the Left sabotage America? That lets you know where the author is coming from and it's obviously more of the same right-wing drivel.

Could be. Remains to be seen. Hate to buy the book to find out, that's why I wanted Index and browsing ability.

surprisingly the "left wing" in this book includes President George W. Bush , his Dad and a host of others not normally considered in the "left" camp. Muslim leaders are taking advantage of this "leftist" ideal of trying to force western paradigm on muslims and muslim leaders are taking great advantage of this. As George Bush and Hussein obama gave prisoners every positive muslim treatment, including times of prayers, halal foods, quran and imams/mullahs to treat terrorists, then released them, many immediately returned the "leftist westernized" niceness with bullets in the heads of innocents and cutting of throats of leftist loving reporters. hussein obama recited islamic prayers declaring allah as God and mohammad as his prophet for NY Times, and made himself a muslim in the eyes of all muslims. Then he traveled around the muslim world denouncing Christianity & exalting islamic America as one of largest muslim nations in the world (to the ridicule of all factual data). In return, he got terrorist after terrorist attack by muslims abroad and several at home. His softer westernized response to granting miranda rights to a terrorist who just tried to blow up hundred on the plane and on the gound cost him even the most leftist MA voters to give the former seat owned by the kennedys to a Republican promising a sounder security policy towards muslim terrorists.
The author's premise to think of the terms of islamists and the cooperative leftists is accurate from all the data and many deaths suffered by the western citizens.
