  • The book is nothing more than hate propaganda. There are SOOOOOOOOOOO many scholars who have point by point answered and dispoved her alligations. If you want I can suggest a whole list of unbiased texts to read about Islam and our history.

  • Sorry can't say that i've read it. Oh NC .. i would love have some links.. can you pm me some. Thanks.

    I can't say that some muslims haven't had hard lives within their cultures.. i can say though that i have experience a beautiful sisterhood in islam and i have a wonderful marriage to a muslim man and my islamic lifestyle is trying to live within the goodness of this world and leaving behind the evil.

    i began studying islam in 2001... after 9/11..and what i found there was what lead be to become muslim. will i read the book.. not sure.. maybe

  • Will i equate it with islam.. NO.. will i equate any man's actions with islam no.. because i don't judge islam by the man.. i judge the man by islam. and islam in it's purest form to me represents a complete instruction to the way of life...and a path striaght to paradise.

  • Not yet, it's on my list. OP have you read Muslim Mafia? The FBI is now investigating CAIR because of information obtained from the writing of the book.

  • Have not read it, but there are three detailed reviews of it on this Amazon page about her book:

    http://www.amazon.com/God-Who-Hates-Courageous-Inflamed/dp/0312538359/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1261006334&sr=8-1
    Brigitte Gabriel is also outspoken about the social practices obtaining in Islamic societies. When she came to America, she thought she was out of the reach of muslim tyrants. On Sept. 11, 2001, she realized that they recognize no boundaries, and she became active in raising consciousness. Her website is here: http://www.americancongressfortruth.com/

    Recently, the movie The Stoning of Soraya M has portrayed the true story of the inhumanity of Sharia law in Iran.

    We have no problem acknowledging that slavery in 1600's & 1700's America was WRONG and EVIL.
    So what if these monstrous men claim Islam gives them license to beat and kill women? Why do the blatantly evil practices in muslim cultures get a pass?

  • or this one?

    Publisher Notes: From Hurt to HealingA child is abused by a priest. Thirty years later, afraid of hurting her own children, she faces her past and begins to heal, only to discover that she is not the only victim in her family. She was the third; there would eventually be a fourth. This is her true story. Journey with her through her personal and spiritual reflections, journal entries, affirmations, and poetry. Experience her fears of abusing her own children, her struggles with anger and intimacy, her confrontation with her family, her re-creation of her image of God, and her re-commitment to her Catholic faith.

  • No, I haven't read it. But one person's story isn't going to convince me that all of Islam is bad.
