  • Islam Unveiled: Disturbing Questions About the World's Fastest Growing Faith

    Going beyond the shallow distinction between a "true" peaceful Islam and the "hijacked" Islam of terrorist groups, Robert Spencer probes the Qur'an and other sacred documents, as well as Islamic traditions and history and the present-day situation of the Muslim world, to find out why the world's fastest-growing faith tends to arouse extremism.

    Overall

    After reading, and listening to, several books on Islam, this book, like some of the others, takes an unpopular view of Islam and its creation. The scary thing is that a great deal of the arguments ring true. They all agree that a large body of Muslims support the militant view that we often attribute only to terrorists. Islam as the one and only true religion is a central theme and how that is interpreted is discussed in detail. Very informative, requiring scrutiny and analysis.

    Like no book before it, Preachers of Hate uncovers an ancient hatred that threatens the life and livelihood of every American. The "new" anti-Semitism targets not only Jews, but Americans specifically and the West in general. It targets our values, our lifestyle, and our freedoms. It is the single most important issue we face when trying to make sense of the Arab world.

    Amir Taheri, an accomplished journalist born in Iran and educated in Tehran, London, and Paris; Raphael Israeli, Professor of Islamic, Middle Eastern, and Chinese history at Hebrew University in Jerusalem; and David Pryce-Jones, the Senior Editor of the National Review, spoke for the motion.

    "Excellent discussion"
    Overall

    An entertaining debate with a balanced discussion from many sides of the religion. The experts that agree that "Islam is Incompatible with Democracy" come away with the greatest credibility and the Jewish expert, Mr. Isreali, is very humorous while making his point. An informative listen for everyone.

  • Understanding Islam: An Introduction to the Muslim World

    Of the 1.3 billion people who today follow the Islamic faith, all are profoundly affected by the teachings of Muhammad and by Muslim traditions that have developed over the past thirteen hundred years. This comprehensive guide offers an informative and insightful introduction to Islam, both as a religion and as a political-economic force. This download has never been more timely!

    Overall

    Produced before 9/11, this primer on the religion of Islam doesn't really address some of the controversial issues that we face today in the world. A great deal of what is said is the "company line" of a peaceful religion. Yet, it tends to contridict itself when discussing historical roots of the religion. It serves the "peaceful" view of Islam, but you feel like there is something you are not being told.

  • The Death of Right and Wrong: Exposing the Left's Assault on Our Culture and Values

    A woman of contradictions, "a gun-toting, lesbian, feminist, voted-for-Reagan activist", Tammy Bruce is standing in line to become the next Ann Coulter. The "left wing" is engaged in an enormous conspiracy to make moral values relative, to undercut pride and patriotism in our country, to destroy Christian ideology at any cost, to pollute the minds of our youth by means of leftist professors who rewrite history, and to hijack the justice system through morally bankrupt trial lawyers.

    Overall

    She's good looking, a lesbian, she has a unique perspective on current events, and she can back it up with history. This is a Democrat that longs for what Democrats used to stand for. I would reccommend this to anyone, especially for my fellow conservatives who think that all liberals have lost it. There is hope for all of us, and Tammy Bruce shows that.
