06 Jan, 2009
- My new book "Cruel and Usual Punishment; the terrifying global implications of Islamic Law" (cover attached) is about to be released and can be ordered right now from Amazon.com and other bookstores.
I cannot stress how important this book will be in opening the eyes of the West to Sharia Islamic Law which the West is considering giving Muslims the right to practice in the West! Great Britain is already allowing it.
Please circulate this press release to your mailing list. Thank you all for your support and Happy New Year!
Following is the Press Release on "Cruel and Usual Punishment; the terrifying global implications of Islamic Law"
WHAT THE WEST MUST KNOW ABOUT SHARIA THE TERRIFYING THREAT THAT CANNOT BE IGNORED
(Washington) -- Nonie Darwish was a virtual slave to Islamic law for the first thirty years of her life. She never questioned or challenged her position — she never dared! “This is Allah’s law,” she was told, and she knew what awaited those who questioned it.
Like all Muslims, Darwish was told that Islamic law honored women, but that could not have been further from the truth; Sharia honor killed them. Darwish doesn’t believe the lies anymore. In her new book Cruel and Usual Punishment (Thomas Nelson, January 6, 2009) Darwish continues her personal mission to warn the West, exposing Muslim efforts to force and enforce Sharia law on unsuspecting nations everywhere.
What is Sharia? “It’s laws are based on the Qur’an and hadiths (reports of Muhammad's words and actions outside of the Qur’an) as well as centuries of debate, interpretation, and precedent,” says Darwish. “It subscribes to punishments such as stoning, flogging, and amputation of limbs — cruel and unusual by any human standards.”
The threat is here now. Throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, young Muslim women are being targeted for violence, often by their own relatives. So-called honor killings, whereby a Muslim male family member, typically the father, murders his daughter in order to defend the family's honor, is a growing problem.
Cruel and Usual Punishment is a bombshell, detailing how many Muslim’s sacrifice their humanity, their rights, and even their lives in the service of archaic and brutal laws handed down from their prophet centuries ago. No one can afford to be ignorant. When the American public is fully informed about Muslim beliefs and scriptures, a healthy level of fear of Islamic Sharia is only normal and actually needed, writes Darwish. Otherwise, she continues, the safety and security of American citizens is seriously threatened.
If we value our liberty, we must protect the soul of Western civilization. The soul of the Muslim world is also at stake. Islam will undergo a transformation if it rejects the use of Sharia and its CRUEL AND USUAL PUNISHMENT to enslave its followers.
