Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword is a study of Islam and the men leading it in the twenty-first century.
I am neither a preacher nor a politician. I am an author caught up in a sensitive subject most secular societies are unfamiliar with. This book is a rational explanation without bias. It is based on both historical fact and books written by modern Muslim leaders themselves, it is not an attack on the religion based on personal agenda.
My research told a different story than what has become common on the editorial pages of American newspapers and contradictory to what the leaders of the American Muslim community are saying. The fact however is, that, with limited exceptions, the term moderate is not compatible when used in a sentence with the word Islam, except to describe what Islam is not!
Challenge me if you will, but put rhetoric aside and research your own beliefs first.
"Islam is a revolutionary doctrine and system that overturns governments. It seeks to overturn the whole universal social order and to establish its structure anew. Islam seeks the world. It is not satisfied by a piece of land but demands the whole universe Jihad is at the same time offensive and defensive The Islamic party does not hesitate to utilize the means of war to implement its goal." Sayyid Abdul-Ala Mawdudi - Jihad in Islam – This Pakistani / Islamic Leader / Teacher / Author died in Buffalo, New York.

If you are looking for a fictional novel with a great mystery story, this is not the book you want to read. If, however, you want to read about the danger that challenges the world every day by the Islam and Muslim religion, this is definitely your book. Mr. Pat has worked around this subject and studied it for many years, seeing how dominating they are and becoming even more so throughout the entire world. The Qur'an was written partially from the sayings and beliefs of the Prophet Muhammad with other influences added also. Mr. Pat takes the reader back many years before Christ was born. At that time the Muslim's were already controlling the parts of the world they entered. Even the Crusades were a part of their history. The most compelling writings of the Qur'an that have been interpreted by various scribes throughout the years but basically always filled with the desire to control the world no matter how this could be accomplished. Kill to control and take over if it was needed. Iraq, Iran, Israel, and most other Asian nations were and still all are on the controlling agenda of the Muslim religion. The United States suffered terribly on 9/11/2001 when Muslim terrorists killed around 3,000 humans including some of their own, but this was no problem for the leaders. A life means nothing to obtain control of all nations and the people within them. There are peaceful Muslims but those Muslims are living a lie if they do not want the entire world to become Muslims and follow the religion. A brief presentation from this book tells a person a lot. As per the Qur'an, after having been given their instructions by God, Jews and Christians were given choices by their Muslim conquerors: 1. To be executed. 2. Submit to the will of God and convert. 3. Be enslaved and maintain their religion in private but pay a tax to the Muslim rulers. Second-class status accompanied the offer. The people of the book who refused to convert but who were willing to pay the tax lived by specific rules: a. Always pass a Muslim on the left. b. They could ride a donkey, no camels or horses, and had to dismount when they came upon a Muslim. c. A Muslim's word took precedence over a non-Muslim. d. A non-Muslim could not testify in court against a Muslim. e. Muslim men could marry non-Muslim women, but Muslim women could not marry non-Muslim men. f. A Muslim could kill a non-Muslim with impunity. g. A non-Muslim who injured or killed a Muslim was executed. h. Specific dress was mandatory for Jews and Christians. If the above doesn't pique your desire to read this book, nothing will. If you are a peaceful Muslim you will no doubt say that the above is not true. Read your Qur'an.
Fear God and The Shadow of The Muslim Sword, is a brilliantly systematic exposition on the Muslim religions¿ Qur¿an, the history and customs. This is a timely, penetrating, and insightful expose of a volatile subject in our politically correct society. America is in apathetic crisis suffering from liberal media's religious brain washing concerning the Islamic-Muslim writings and teachings. With inimitable courage, Mr. Pat has boldly penned an important and starkly powerful reveal, sounding a very sobering alarm! A must read for anyone concerned about the future of this United States of America as a free country.
