Product description

Review

Is Tariq Ramadan an Islamic liberal and reformer or a clever Islamist strategist who uses the language of liberalism to disguise a fundamentalist agenda. Read this book and judge for yourself. --Peter Tatchell, Human rights

Caroline Fourest's book is an essential guide to decoding Islamist rhetoric, exposing the political project which lies behind contived controversies such as the veil. --Joan Smith, Journalist and human rights activist

Synopsis

The name Tariq Ramadan is well known in the West. Thanks to his urbane manner and articulate way of expressing himself - in a number of languages - this Swiss-born 'academic' is a regular contributor to television and radio features dealing with Islam (and Islamism) and the West. In the UK, his reputation as a 'moderate' has won him praise. Meanwhile, as the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Ramadan enjoys a certain status in Islamic circles - as a kind of ambassador for his grandfather's brand of political Islam. So who actually is Tariq Ramadan and what does he really stand for? In this incisive and insightful study of the man, the well-known French writer and journalist Caroline Fourest dissects the public pronouncements of Tariq Ramadan. Drawing on his numerous books, articles and tapes as sources, she demonstrates with chilling clarity that the West has been beguiled by Ramadan's smooth talk. By his doublespeak. Tariq Ramadan has been portrayed as the Murtin Luther King of Islam. This study reveals that he is more the Pat Robertson of a political and reactionary Islam.
