5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 4 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent product and exactly what I was looking for. Has tilt, swivel and is very solid. I must say it is very good quality but heavy too.

Loved the pull-out and push-in feature of the bracket. The swivel is very good as you can turn the TV round smoothly. This really is a sturdy bracket and at a very good price compared to the ones available on high street.

The built-in spirit level worked fine for me, although I checked it with my own spirit level too, as I usually do for working around the house.

I'm pretty pleased with my install; the only thing is that you will need another pair of hands to install the wall bracket and TV.

Delivery was very fast. I would certainly recommend this wall bracket.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nonsense, 29 Dec. 2007
The argument of the book does not make sense. The book itself states that Mahdi is a person who will "establish justice and righteousness throughout the world and eradicate tyranny and oppression" [page 50]. This clearly contradicts to the embodiment of evil, i.e. the Antichrist.

The following excerpt from Wikipedia (under topic "antichrist") provides much more accurate information regarding the Islamic viewpoint on this topic:

Antichrist is similar to the description of dajjal, who will appear as a powerful and corrupt leader and Isa (Arabic name for Jesus Christ) will kill him in an epic war near Jerusalem. Muslims also have expectations of the antichrist; they call him al-Masih al-Dajjal ("Messiah-Liar"). He will defy Christ and pervert the words of the true Messiah. He will appear towards the end of this civilization. Quite a few Muslims believe the dajjal or anti-christ will deceive people, perform "miracles" (in reality sorcery) allowed by the permission of God as a test for people and whether they believe, get people to join his false religion and eventually claim to be a prophet and then God. He will speak beautifully and fool people. Among the signs of the Hour will be the emergence of a beast from the earth. It will be very strange in appearance, and be extremely huge; one cannot even imagine what "it/he" will look like.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 27 Mar. 2007
Unfortunately this is not a book written with an open mind. The author approaches the topic with a very negative mindset, which seems to have distorted his judgment. This is demonstrated, for example, when he criticizes the first five verses of the Quran's 66th chapter. The author complains about the details being missing, but it is not too hard to see that the details do not really matter for lessons to be taken from this passage. In fact this is one of the key features of the Quran - insignificant matters are kept brief while significant issues are repeated frequently.

Interestingly, the book contains some good remarks about Muhammad, even though Spencer did not mean that, e.g.:

"Muhammad summoned his kinsmen, the Quraysh, climbing a mountain and calling the names of the various Quraysh clans. He asked them, 'Suppose I told you that there is an (enemy) cavalry in the valley intending to attack you, would you believe me?' They responded, 'Yes, for we have not found you telling anything other than the truth.' Muhammad's riposte to this was: 'I am a warner to you in face of a terrific punishment.' In other words, the dreadful judgment of Allah would be far worse than the enemy cavalry."

Spencer totally disregards this display of Muhammad's trustworthiness, and struggles to find a negative point.

Throughout the book, the author presents his interpretations as actual facts, for example: "But some of the Quran's stories and details about Biblical characters actually come from sources ..."

To sum up, I find this book full of prejudice, so would not recommend it.
