Is the "War on Terror" Based on a False Hope?
In the days following 9/11, George W. Bush assured America and the world that Islam was a "religion of peace" and that the violent followers of Osama Bin Laden had twisted the true Muslim faith. Acting on this belief, President Bush and other Western leaders sent troops to the Middle East in an effort to bring freedom and democracy to the Muslim world.
But what if this "understanding" of Islam is based not on fact, but instead on equal parts wishful thinking and Islamic deceit? It would mean that the entire War on Terror is based on a faulty--and increasingly deadly--premise.
In Religion of Peace? Islam’s War Against the World, author and filmmaker Gregory M. Davis rebuts the notion that Islam is a great faith in desperate need of a Reformation. Instead, he exposes it as a form of totalitarianism, a belief system that orders its adherents not to baptize all nations, but to conquer and subdue them. Islamic law's governance of every aspect of religious, political, and personal action has far more in common with Nazism than with the tenets of Christianity or Judaism.
Davis details how Islamic thought divides the world into two spheres locked in perpetual combat: dar al-Islam ("House of Islam," where Islamic law predominates), and dar al-harb ("House of War," the rest of the world). This concise yet thorough book leaves no doubt as to why most of the world's modern conflicts are connected to Islam--and calls into question why Western elites refuse to acknowledge Islam's violent nature. Religion of Peace? Islam’s War Against the World is nothing less than a wake-up call to all civilized nations--and one they ignore at their peril.

All modern Westerners must read this book. It offers a short summary of Islam, its basic beliefs, its long and bloody history, and its goals for the world. The West, especially America, must wake up before it's too late. Highly recommended. Readers of this book would also like "Jenna's Flaw," a novel about the death of God, the crumbling of Western civilization, and what the West can do to stop it.
