    Noam Chomsky spoke to nearly 1,300 concerned citizens about the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the implications for U.S. foreign policy. Chomsky began with a review and analysis of the State of the Union Address and other necessary allusions. He wondered aloud when the U.S. will become a part of the world justice system instead of outside it. Chomsky pointed out how the U.S. government had opened a Pandora's Box with their loose interpretation of pre-emptive strike.

    The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas.

    Greg says: "Good book – poor narrator"
    "Same old stuff"
    Overall

    When I read the description, the book seemed exciting and new. It’s basically regurgitated spiritual stuff with scoring system to measure belief systems, documents and personalities. Churchill gets a pretty high score… I guess the author is unaware of colonial atrocities but the bad part is the sprinkle of opinionated segments containing ignorance and hate that have no reference or basis. I really wasted my money.

  • Islam and World Peace: Explanations of a Sufi

    Islam teaches that we must not kill each other. Instead we must wage war against evil qualities within ourselves. Islam seeks to join together as one, knowing that those who have not affirmed the Kalimah (the affirmation of Faith) are our neighbors, and that those who have affirmed the Kalimah become a part of us. Oneness is the most important aspect of Islam: Protecting our neighbors from danger is primary, and then we must embrace them.... That is Islam.

    Lou says: "Islam $ World Peace"
    "Our true enemy is ignorance."
    Overall

    Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, a Sufi mystic, can best be remembered for his efforts to bring unity through understanding to the faithful of all religions.
    In 1971 Bawa Muhaiyaddeen accepted an invitation to visit the United States. Here, once again, people from all religious, social and ethnic backgrounds would join to hear him speak. Across the United States, Canada and England, he won recognition from religious scholars, journalists, educators and world leaders. The United Nation's Assistant Secretary General, Robert Muller, asked for Bawa Muhaiyaddeen's guidance on behalf of all mankind. Time Magazine turned to him for clarification during the hostage crisis in 1980. Thousands more were touched by his wise words when interviewed in Psychology Today, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Pittsburgh Press.

    Our true enemy is ignorance.

    Best-selling author and renowned religious scholar Karen Armstrong presents a concise and articulate history of Islam, the world's fastest-growing faith. Beginning with the Prophet Muhammad's flight from Medina and concluding with an examination of modern Islamic practices and concerns, Armstrong delivers an unbiased overview. She contends that no religion is more feared and misunderstood by the Western world as Islam, and firmly challenges the notion that these two civilizations are on a collision course.

    Matthew says: "Slow & tedious"
    "short but accurate view"
    Overall

    Karen Armstrong has done a wonderful job offering an accurate view of Islam.

    Bernard Lewis examines the historical roots of the frustrations and resentments that dominate the Islamic world today and that are increasingly being expressed in acts of terrorism. He looks at the theological origins of political Islam and tells us what the Islamic doctrine of jihad has meant at different times in history.

    Frank says: "Absolutely Worth It, HIghly Recommended!"
    "An orientalist View"
    Overall

    Lewis admits he is an orientalist, viewing the world from that particular angle. The information is not balance but bias.

    In the tradition of Daniel Boorstin, the co-founder of Omni delivers an original work of history that demonstrates why modern science rests on a foundation built by ancient and medieval non-European societies. "If you think that modern science is rooted in the golden age of Greece, you owe it to yourself to [hear this] book," says Library Journal.

    Kevin says: "A worthwhile challenge"
    "Excellent!!!"
    Overall

    Amazing insight to the missing pieces of the puzzle; fills the vacuum left by European scholarship.
