Finnished Reading Wafa Sultan

Those who need this book like the bird brained Duck are the last to read this blunt assessment.

If you do not have the time to Read The Great Divide by Alvin Schmidtt Sultan in terse terms reminds us Mohammad is not and should never be confused with Jesus or Moses. From this starting point we see the imprint on the societies created by the followers of different religions.

The familiar refrain from the religious fanatics is about the decadent West. I am not bothered by pornography or a gay coworker. Smacking planes into office buildings and beheading people in snuff films is not exactly moral. The above is not a jab at Muslims like Stephen Schwartz who has never minced words about terrorism and gratuitous death as a publicity stunt.

The book is decent reading but you can likely do better with Falachi.

"The book is decent reading but you can likely do better with Oriana Fallaci."

Bovine excrement Beak! Fallaci is a drama queen, pain in the arse and attention whore. Or how does one desribe a woman who has a "passionate" affair with a man ten years her junior (and married elsewhere, if memory serves), a man who kicked her (and his) unborn child out of her womb, a woman who STILL did not leave that man but rather wrote two books about it?

Fallaci was a journalist, a word peddler, writing was her profession. Sultan is a doctor. She has been to hell and back. Do you think Fallaci knew Islam as, well, intimately as Sultan does? Sultan writes about Islam, Fallaci writes about how she (SHE SHE SHE) FINDS Islam. Big difference.

Sultan's strength is that she writes of the roots of Islam. Most reraders are apt better served by reading how Islam impacts a Western Society and the culture of leftist appeasement.

Sultan writes forceably and direct about what Islam is from the source.

Bruce Bawer whose book I am reading at the moment deals with the historical sweep. It is an easier reading experience and he conveys much more information is similar pages.

The book is excellent reading but if I were to pick one Bawer and Trifkovic would be better choices.

Finnished? Is this some Scandinavian socialist crap?

I blogged about Bawer here, here and here.

Actually, you left quite an interesting comment on one of them.

Bawer makes an more strident case than I do about similar themes. I discuss the social contract that governs immigration. Get a job, learn the laguage, stay off welfare, respect others, stay out of jail and show some loyalty for your host country.

Bawer talks about this phenomenon as an assault on the host culture
aided by the far left.

The Simon Mol case in Poland where a nasty hack leftist amatuer poet faked an asylum claim and infected
around 16 people with HIV illustrated the divide. To me Mol abused the hospitality of Poland and commited a serious crime. To the far left merely suggesting that maliciously transmitting AIDS was a racist expression.
