Inside Jihad – Review

“I’ve read and reviewed counter-jihad classics by bestselling experts including Robert Spencer, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Bernard Lewis, Andrew Bostom, Wafa Sultan, Brigitte Gabriel, Mosab Hassan Yousef, and Phyllis Chesler. I think highly of each. This is how good Inside Jihad is. If someone said to me, “I want to read just one book about jihad.” I’d give that reader Dr. Hamid’s book.

Inside Jihad is brief. Hamid’s style is direct and fast-paced. He says what he needs to say without sensationalism, emotionality, literary ambition, or apologies.

He pulls no punches.”

    Quranics – hmm.

    Here is a shorter counter-jihad primer: “NO!”.

    Just say NO to every demand and political projection of totalitarian islam that muslims try to foist upon us. Say NO to prayers and prayer rooms. Say NO to hijabs, niqabs and burqas. Say NO to any form of public funding/subsidy for any form of islamic institution. Say NO to mosques. Say NO to ramadan. Say NO to halal.

    Just say NO to totalitarian islam.

      You got. We will get there but it’s still going to take more of our blood.

    To win a war, you must exploit the enemy’s weak points, both materially and psychologically. That means 1) admitting you have an enemy and 2) fighting on non-traditional terms.

    We are willing to do neither.

    As much as I respect Pam Geller, she insists that Islamic radicals are the problem, not Islam. That may be smart PR, but it is wrong. Islam is the problem, period.

      The problem is taking the Quran and hadith literally.

      But more broadly the problem I’m afraid may also have to do with social psychology, and self esteem.

      I’m not a psychologist, but I think Hollywood can really help here by showing both positive and negative examples of stereotypical Muslims. Showing them in such polarizing ways that ordinary Muslims will choose for themselves the positive role models.

    Does he offer any other, more general strategy then Quranics, which thankfully helped him?

    By the way, Iran used sharia courts effectively to dissuade their own domestic terror groups by demonstrating in televised court cases that the offender was doomed to eternal hellfire.

    “…Another method used to Islamize recruits was “al-fikr kufr” – “one becomes an infidel by thinking critically.”

    No wonder they have so many recruits.
