lazy and uninspired,
This review is from: Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran (Paperback)i have avidly consumed mr spencers previous books, and even though ive taken them with a few grains of salt...ive always found them interesting and informative.
ive had confirmed to my satisfaction much of what he's said through extensive study of many texts that cover the same subject.
this book however i find to be very dull and repetitive. it feels like he's either running out of steam, or dumbing down [with cartoon cover] for a redneck readership.
i hope this is a temporary lapse.
what i would like to see mr spencer write [-or any other author for that matter] is a book that reveals the mechanism of denial that is inculcated in muslims, that allows them to divide the world into us & them... ummah&kuffar.....and not see anything wrong with having one rule for US:the ummah....and one rule for them:kuffar.....and how this leads them to keep to a position where no criticism of islam/koran/mohammed can be acknowledged if it originates from non-muslims [including scholarly researches into the history of islam&the koran], and also leads to a culture prone to conspiracy theories and self defensive denials about anything blameworthy in their culture.
i suppose its the alien sharia ethics i want explained. our western evaluation of "good" and "bad" is purely based on the merit of the deed done. it is irrelevant which camp the do-er belongs to....but islam appears to accept, or is blind to hypocracy: ie: its ok for a muslim to marry a non-muslim woman, but not for a muslim woman to marry a non-muslim

so what about the special tax that people of other faiths had to pay muslims in order to be allowed to follow their religion , explain that to us then? doesnt sound equal to me? also explain why muslim women cannot marry non muslms but muslim men can?

In your own review of this book posted here on Amazon you claim that one of the most important aspects of Islam, for which the religion is not given suffiicient credit, is "gender equality", yet here you are in your comment on this review saying that the husband is the head of the family and the wife is under his authority.
It seems that in your religion, to paraphrase George Orwell, 'all genders are equal but some are more equal than others'.

In effect, what Jade is breathlessly assterting is that children in ALL "mixed" marriages must be brought up as Muslims. Jade thinks it so selfevident that all inconsistencies are ignored a priori.
It would be advisable for women in a relationship with a Muslim man to read the fine print first: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2006/05/fjordma
I too suggest a look at Jade's review above: her (?) comments are hilarious.

"non-Muslim places of worship have flourished all over the Islamic world."
