Two books you're not supposed to read

One is the compilation and the observations by Robert Spencer, titled: Politically incorrect guide to ISLAM, the other is the Qur'an itself, the final truth "from the horses mouth"! If you, despite my warnings will venture to read these scripts you will start to understand that Islam is a religion of violence since it's very conception, a religion based on warfare that only can end if all infidels are either converted to praise Allah, or simply become the under-cast part of a population obeying the laws of Dhimma. No Islamic apologist will ever wiggle his way out of this and content with the idea that also Islam is a religion of tolerance and peace. It simply is not. Eventually he (there is no she in Islam) will have to come to the same conclusion. (if any honesty is involved...)
A fairly readable and well done translation of the Qur'an in English is published by Penguin Books by N.J. Dawood. Muslims tend to dislike him because he was a non Muslim. So, the alternative translations are by Abdullah Yusuf Ali and Mohammed Maraduke Pickthall, but both are tedious to read because they are marred by using a pseudo-King James Bible english.
If you have further interest to read up on ISLAM, consider the books written by Bat Ye'or, "Islam and Dhimmitude" and the book "Eurabia".

I have just read a book titled The End of Faith, by Sam Harris. In it he argues it's time to go beyond religion if we want to survive and flourish. He also examines some of the major religions, what havoc they've wreaked over the years (think Inquisition for example) and what fundamental beliefs in them might wreak today. His analysis of Islam is interesting...similar conclusions to yours (at least for fundamental believers).

Christianity doesn't fare much better.

No, there is no such thing as "fundamentalists" or "fundamental believers" in Islam, that's a myth. You are either "with them" or against them. And if you don't support Islam, you are against Islam, even if you are a modest Arab living in Saudi Arabia trying to stay quiet and "just get by". Secular Islam is a fairy-tale and does not exist, a western misconception. The whole movement that Mohammed started, is a war machine with only one goal in mind: The "final solution" - namely the rule and or conversion of ALL infidels on this planet.
This is not my opinion, this is the teachings of Mohammed.
Read the Qur'an, and thy might be enlightened....
Yes, there are and were issues about Christianity - the Crusades surely don't leave a sweet flavor. But the bottom line is (and you don't even have to be "religious") Christianity never provoked the idea of a "final solution". (neither did Judaism by the way ... no punch intended).

Thanks for the book suggestions. I've already reserved a copy of The Politically Incorrect Guide to ISLAM from my local library, and I look forward to reading it. I know very little about Islam and it sounds like it may be a good introduction to it.

Hi Cym!
If you can handle it, borrow also a copy of the Qur'an, just as a reference sort to speak...
Take care, Zee.

Zee,

This is exactly the kind of low-grade reading material that informs a misguided understanding of islam... once again, please check out the reading list I left for you on the Mirvat post... Secular islam is not a fairy tale, Islam offers no 'final solution'... how can you say these things? It is really, really troubling...

What is "low grade" about it - did you read it?
