Islam without Illusions by Ed Hotaling

Book Description

This is an entirely new introduction to Islam by a major American news correspondent versed in Islamic religion, culture and politics, one who has seen the course of war and upheaval, peace and prosperity. Unmasking the tie between Islam and modern terrorism, Ed Hotaling explores the radical challenge posed by terrorists to the religion they claim to follow and their threat to the world at large. Hotaling describes how Muhammad created the first Islamic state. He was an innovative general and diplomat who respected women's rights. Hotaling draws the stunning conclusion that if the Prophet were alive today, he would be an American. Hotaling explains, "Just as he did in the heat of persecution, embattled leadership and war, he would have stood up today for his principles, debated and negotiated with his rivals, tolerated their ideas until he could win them over ...and fought in the open". Here is the amazing story of how Muhammad's followers conquered half the world, exceeded early Christian Europe in the arts, sciences and government and won the bloody battles of the Crusades. Hotaling traces the path of Islam to modern times and the spread of Islamic revolution spurred by the Iranian Revolution. He reveals its connection to the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. With compelling precision, he uncovers alternatives to an impending cataclysmic clash of civilizations.
