This is a wakeup call for all of you who believe that Islam is a religion of peace and that we are all the same in our daily lives. Nonie Darwish, an Egyptian woman, whose father was a Muslim Shahid, takes us deep into the world of Islam and its cultural and religious reality.
First I should explain the role of a Shahid or Shaheed—he is a fighter and martyr for the cause of Islam. The word itself means witness. To become a martyr you must, of course, kill infidels and then be dispatched in this fight.
Nonie’s father was an Egyptian military officer stationed in Gaza, making undeclared war against the Jews. He was very successful with his covert operations, killing many Jews, and was killed in retaliation. For that he was much revered as a shahid. Nonie and her siblings grew up fatherless; her mother remained a widow, although she was a young woman.
Nonie, a very intelligent woman, began to see early on that Islam intrinsically contains the seeds of war against all mankind, because of the stated call in the Koran that eventually all men must become Muslims or be annihilated.
It is impossible to impart all the subtle explanations for Muslim culture, thought and lives described in Darwish’s book. It is for the reader to find out for him- or herself how this culture and religion enslaves women and children, fosters suspicion between husband and wife, female friends and between husband’s family and the wife.
I highly encourage you to find this book and read for yourself what is hidden below the curtain of propaganda put forth for “ignorant infidel” foreigners.
