Robert Morey's book is biased and negative at best

Reader comment on item: The Islamic Invasion: Confronting the World's Fastest Growing Religion

Submitted by Rev. Robert Woods (United States), Feb 21, 2006 at 11:37

Morey wants to scare us into fearing Muslims. He gives us statistics and then interprets those statistics to suit his premise of an evil religion. It is true that Muslims from Middle Eastern countries do have a great deal of difficulty understanding our separation of church and state and westerners freedom to critique religion and politics, even our leaders, of course Bush makes that easy.

Morey finds it easy to pick two of the most insane leaders of the Middle East Khadafy and Saddam and their pronouncements of Jihad against our soldiers. He insists it is a holy war against Christians; it couldn't have anything to do with western imperialism. He points out that in a survey of Arab Muslims in the US over half of them did not Support Bush and would not back America - and send their children in support a war in the Middle East, thank God, you can include Jesus in that survey.

His modern parable of George Washington is absurd. It makes no rational sense at all. In fact, the entire book is a farce with a few selective statistics to back it up, which he interprets to meet his own negative polemic. If you would like to learn about the Islamic faith take a look at Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's book "What's Right about America, is what's right about Islam"
