Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword is a study of Islam and the men leading it in the twenty-first century.
I am neither a preacher nor a politician. I am an author caught up in a sensitive subject most secular societies are unfamiliar with. This book is a rational explanation without bias. It is based on both historical fact and books written by modern Muslim leaders themselves, it is not an attack on the religion based on personal agenda.
My research told a different story than what has become common on the editorial pages of American newspapers and contradictory to what the leaders of the American Muslim community are saying. The fact however is, that, with limited exceptions, the term moderate is not compatible when used in a sentence with the word Islam, except to describe what Islam is not!
Challenge me if you will, but put rhetoric aside and research your own beliefs first.
"Islam is a revolutionary doctrine and system that overturns governments. It seeks to overturn the whole universal social order and to establish its structure anew. Islam seeks the world. It is not satisfied by a piece of land but demands the whole universe Jihad is at the same time offensive and defensive The Islamic party does not hesitate to utilize the means of war to implement its goal."
