5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect gift for a 'muslim' girlfriend, 16 Dec. 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A God Who Hates: The Courageous Woman Who Inflamed the Muslim World Speaks Out Against the Evils of Radical Islam (Hardcover)
I don't know if anyone else has a girlfriend who states they are 'muslim' yet rejects what she sees as the misrepresented Islam practised by males all over the muslim world (and the West too). It is painfully heartbreaking trying to explain why Muhammad and his religion is a terrible role model for children to learn, and that muslims behave in an uncivillised manner only when they try to emulate their prophet.
Books that go through the Koran line by line or analyse Muhammads life can cause a muslim mind to go into defensive shutdown, blindly rejecting any of the vital information from the mind of someone who otherwise would reject Muhammads teachings due the simple matter of them being so terrible. However this book, by contrast, tells the life story of Wafa Sultan from her own perspective, a far more difficult voice to dismiss since she is both female and resident in an Islamic country for the first quarter century or more of her life. Her psychological analysis of the muslim mindset may well resonate with other muslim women in a way that a Western critique of Muhammads words and actions could never do, although his teachings and examples of behaviour are also discussed in this book as necesssary examples of how muslims program themselves and their children with Muhammads barbaric teachings and then act surprised when their laws permit men to beat their wives for disobedience.
No one book can help a muslim reject Muhammad's teachings all at once, but books like this may sow enough seeds of doubt to one day blossom into clarity about the danger of Islam to impressionable young children who grow up seeing women as inferiors who should obey men as commanded by Muhammad's conveniently invisible bully-monster Allah.
