Islam: Silencing the Critics

This book addresses the misinformation and misunderstanding about Islam spread by Islamophobes. This is an easy book to read. The explanations are presented in a way that is logical and easy to understand.

The author also explains many misunderstandings about Quran verses that are quoted out of context. For example, when a verse is taken on its own, it gives the impression that Islam condones violence. However, when you look at that verse in the context of other verses before and after it, the true context emerges and and it gives a completely different picture than the one painted by Islamophobes.

Regardless of whether you’re a Muslim or non-Muslim, “Islam: Silencing the Critics” provides a one-stop center that addresses the common misunderstanding about Islam.

I don’t understand the Palestinians. I don’t understand their strength and resilience. I don’t understand how they withstand decades of brutal occupation and oppression.

What is even more incomprehensible is silence of the international community. Why do so many of us choose to not see and let evil prevail?

This book is an account of what Dr. Mads Gilbert witnessed at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza in the summer of 2014 when, once again, Israel bombarded Gaza. The majority of the people injured and killed by Israel were children and women — unarmed civilians.

This book is important because it documents what happened when Israel attacked Gaza. Western main stream media would not tell this story, would not let you see the human cost of a war on unarmed civilians. May be they are afraid that if more people wake up to the brutal reality of Israel’s crime, our voice will become loud enough and strong enough to bring an end to the occupation and demand justice for the victims.
