Yes we know that Islam has similarities to Christianity and Judaism; Islam developed out of Christianity, which in turn developed out of Judaism so this is inevitable; although I was surprised that the early Sumerian origin of Judaism itself was not touched on. The fact of the matter however is that neither Christianity or Judaism divide the world into two houses:- the House of Submission(Where the faithful reside.) and the House of War(Which is to be conquered by the faithful.). As to the Islamic faith not having been "spread by the sword", this is historically untrue as any glance at the relevant history books will make clear. I also found it strange that no mention was made of Adolf Hitler having been so impressed by Islam's martial qualities that he designed SS indoctrination/training around them, concealed behind a suitably Nordic mythological veneer. Yes, we also realize that, in common with most of the world at that time, pre-Islamic Arabia could be quite a savage place; but whilst employed in modernday Arabia a few years ago, I watched an unfortunate woman stoned to death for adultery. For her, the idea of Islam as a 'liberating force' was laughable.
Ironically, as a man with inclination's toward the 'Victorian values' type of society; I found living under Sharia Law a genuine liberation; the fear it inspires in the weak, and most criminals are weak in character; enabled me to forget about locks, bolts and 'security'. After the first few weeks, I knew anything I left in the back of the pickup would still be there when I returned; which it would not have been in London. Similarly; I was impressed with how Islamic polygamy works in practice. Huge numbers of men in the West today simply lack the abilities necessary to make good husbands and fathers; which in turn condemns millions of women and children to failed marrages, single parenthood and the miseries of domestic chaos. This just does not happen in the Islamic world, where father is still Master in his own house by Law, with the final say on everything, including who his daughters marry. Overwhelmingly the choices made are the right one's.
To conclude, history is the story of man's inhumanity to his fellow man; inevitably the strong will dominate, exploit and often exterminate the weak; we see this in the natural world of which humanity is just a part, every day. Taken in it's entirety, I believe Islam to be a more vigorous, stronger and better faith, which seems for the moment at least, destined to overwhelm an ever more degenerate Christianity; but the nonesense written in this book would really be better ignored as the prattlings of a deluded woman.
