Overview

WHAT EVERY AMERICAN NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE QUR'AN-A HISTORY OF ISLAM & THE UNITED STATES You will be fascinated by this fast-paced, objective history of the world from a perspective you have never imagined. Current events will come into focus in the back drop of 1,400 years of inconceivable yet true events and conflicts. Thousands of books, documents and articles have been researched for years in the compilation this book. In 2006, Keith Ellison became the first Muslim elected to Congress, swearing upon a Qur'an. Most Americans know little about the Qur'an, who wrote it and how Islam spread. Within 100 years of Mohammed's death, his followers conquered North Africa, the Holy Land, Persia, Spain-from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. President Barak Obama stated in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009: "Islam has always been a part of America's story." Indeed, Islam has affected the Western World from 622 AD to today's headlines. This book will give you a fascinating glimpse into captivating events and amazing stories- you won't want to put it down! Find answers to how Islam is connected to: •The stirrup for riding horses, who invented it and how Muslims used it to win military conquests? •What happened to Coptic Christian Egypt and the 250 Catholic dioceses that used exist along North Africa? •Santa Claus - how did Islam cause the story of Saint Nicholas to spread from the Byzantine Empire to Western Europe in 1087 AD? •How did Muslim Ottoman Turks invading the Byzantine Empire resulted in the Crusades, 1095-1272 AD? •What did Marco Polo say was the origin of the word "assassin"? •What happened to the Seven Churches of mentioned in the Book of Revelation? •How did the 1000 year old Byzantine Enpire get conquered? •What did Sultan Mehmet II do to Constantinople in 1453 that led Columbus to set sail in 1492? •Dracula - What is the real-life account of "Vlad the Impaler" in 1462, (not Bram Stoker's 1897 fiction novel)? •What did Martin Luther say in 1529 about Muslim Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent who was laying siege to Vienna, Austria? •Who did Captain John Smith fight in Hungary in 1600 before founding Virginia in 1607? •Who did James Oglethorpe fight in Serbia in 1717 before founding the Colony of Georgia? •What happened to a Pilgrim ship returning to England to trade for supplies in 1625 when they met a Moroccon pirate man-of-war? •September 11, 1683 - How the Muslims loss in the Battle of Vienna lead to coffee and croissant pastries spreading across Europe? •How was Islamic expansion funded by the slave trade of millions Africans and Europeans? •How did Thomas Jefferson and James Madison's fighting the North African Barbary Pirates, 1805-1815, lead to the U.S. Marine nickname "leathernecks,' Marine "mamluke" sword, Marine Anthem "From the halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli"? •What happened to over 1.5 million Armenian Christians when President Woodrow Wilson failed to convince the U.S. Senate in 1922 to adopt Armenia as a protectorate - similar to Puerto Rico? •What was the impact of oil being discovered in Saudi Arabia in 1938?

    Federer is a Good Scholar

    Federer has written several books. He concentrates on American History, looking mainly for what our secular history books have purposely, erroneously, not mentioned. To be "politically correct" (i.e., atheistic belief that no god exists, therefore don't encourage belief in the supernatural) most modern histories exclude God's involvement in the lives of our Founders & in events. Federer does the research & reports what actually happened. In this book he researched the history of Islam & how American leaders have dealt with this Church-State System with global conquest & inequality as its goals. Very enlightening & important for Americans to know: love the Arab but beware of Islam.

    Review vs. Insults

    The eloquent and detailed praise of the book in the first review contrasted with the panicked, baseless claim in the second review that just because a translator of the Koran translates the passage "We keel you infidels!" As "We keel you infidels", that no one who reads that translation by a linguistic and cultural expert not censored by Mulims, be allowed to believe it (we really mean "we keel you infidels" in the nicest way) without learning Arabic, is so ludicrous and such a blatant false flag that I of course bought it to see the truth the Muslim was so desperate to hide. I anticipate it being as important as "Secrets of the Koran" which was very enlightening. Having spent my career as a translator and analyst, I know non-natives can provide beautifully accurate translations and non-biased evaluations of cultural realities. I know the more insults hurled at a book by atheists and broken-English foreigners, the more I want to read that book.

    What Everyone should know about the Qur'an

    Twisting the facts would lead us nowhere! . It is a commonsense, in order to learn about a subject you have to learn the language of the subject or at least by someone who knows the language of the subject matter.
