With all the Islamophiles in the UK and the constant positive propaganda pushed out by the mainstream UK media I decided to have a look at an alternative view, what I found was astounding- shocking - thought provoking and educational. The book to start with is heavy reading at the beginning for the layman and I found it difficult to get a grasp of all the religious pre-text and text for that matter in the 1st chapter, but, as I did, perceiver, the back ground is very important. It gets easier as you get through the chapters.
Basically, I will never look at Islam in the same light, the rhetoric that's gets pushed by our Goverments and Media of a peaceful, tolerant religion is all wrong, even if only 10% of the book is true (The book in my view is 100% correct) then we should be afraid, very afraid as Westerners and prepare for what is to come.

It's a shame that those who criticize Srdja Trifkovic and The Sword of the Prophet are not able to refute Trifkovic's work itself. As a matter of fact, many of the reviewers who reviewed this book negatively state that Trifkovic is an Islam hater and, because he isn't Muslim or because he's not an admirer of the Arab culture and Islamic religion, his opinion should be disregarded. Nothing could be further from the truth. Who would you want to get valid information from? Someone who studied and formed a valid opinion based on fact and history? Or, someone born into Islam-- a religion that, according to the Koran, it is blasphemous to critique and question? It's not that Trifkovic disliked Islam and then decided to condemn it, it's that he learned about it, studied it, and drew these conclusions based on what he learned. And, he learned it from history, from Islamic scholars and from the Koran.

Trifkovic's book is one of the best on the subject. He sources all of his material abundantly. He is concise. He states opposing viewpoints and common beliefs and refutes them irrefutably. He cites the Koran and sources the place. This isn't opinion Trifkovic shares. These are facts that he enlightens his readers with. There really isn't too much room for debate, because he is only citing facts that have happened in history and the Koran itself. And, as you can guess, he's not an apologist by any means.

The common belief that Islam is a "religion of peace" is false. According to Islam, we are always in the "house of war", but strive to be in the "house of peace". What's the house of peace, you ask? Well, according to Islam, we will be in the "house of peace" when the whole world is Muslim. And, the whole world will be Muslim by committing Jihad. These are the facts of Islam.

This excellent book pulls no punches in showing that Islam is not just a religion but an entire way of life whose fundamental basis is allegedly far from peaceful and where breaches of Islamic/Sharia law are subject to severe punishment.
Some readers may find this study to be contentious but the contents need to be read.
The book cites how many politicans & religious leaders purportedly admonish everyone not to condemn Islam due to the actions and attitudes of a supposed few who allegedly belong to a tiny fanatical majority.
While the book concurs that this approach should not be taken towards every Moslem, it also contends that to believe such about Islam itself is erroneous.
The book investigates what allegedly causes Moslems to exhort martyrdom in order to annihilate the Jews and the West.
Through a studied, sobering and well written approach, devoid of animousity, the writer shows that in fact the proponents of such are purportedly in fact following the precise instructions of Islam and are not the exceptions to the rule that many would describe them to be.
The writer addresses a plethora of such issues including for example, "why, with their immense oil related wealth, not a single Moslem nation is included amongst the top 30 of the World's richest nations". Also "why in the last 20 years, have over two million people been killed in conflicts involving Moslem communities".
The history of Islam is examined and is allegedly found to have been largely a 'religion of war', bent on Worldwide domination. Having been provided with the context surrounding these assertions the reader is left to draw his/her own opinions as to the veracity of such statements.
An issue of immediate concern is also addressed. That being "how our own freedom of speech and tolerant regimes are being purportedly exploited to further modern day Islamic expansionism and terrorism".
This is an excellent book which desperately needs to be read.

I must confess to being shocked by what I read about the Prophet Mohammed in this book. In my naive innocence, I had imagined that he was rather a Christ-like figure and that Allah was similar to the God of the Christians and Jews. If this book is true, that is not the case. I'm sure apologists would seek to explain away the distasteful aspects (murder, rape, child brides) but I must confess I cannot see how.

This book is not without its own prejudice - it makes frequent reference to Christian culture and figures as a kind of yard-stick (describing Mohammed as "not a prophet in his own city", an unacknowledged reference to the similar statement about Jesus in the New Testament), which is a flaw. Nonetheless, although I read this book with an open-minded liberal-leaning mind set, I could not afterwards get rid of the unpleasant taste in my mouth left by what I learned about this fast-growing religion.
