More About A Dictionary of Radical Islam by MR John Henry Cavendish
First published on Amazon as the Terror of Radical Islam now re-titled A Dictionary of Radical Islam is an updated version of that book including a number of additions. My mandate was to create a reference book of the names used in the media relating to Islamic terror groups. I have kept as far as possible a balanced view in the accompanying narratives but most importantly I want to clarify some misconceptions and misnomers. For example most people could not tell you the difference between a Sunni Muslim or a Shia or Shiite. Or tell you about Gaza or the Talaban, Al-Queda or Boco Harem (ISWAP). Or know that a third of the worlds 1.7 billion Muslims live in Africa. Or what Sharia law, a Jihad, a fatwa, Janna or Iblis is? And is there any truth in the belief that a jihad will be given 72 virgins after his death as a warrior? This a simple to understand book compiled in alphabetical order describing in plain language the meanings of the words. The Islamic terrorist is now a reality in our streets, theatres, planes and beaches. We are at war with them and they with us. They kill and wreck countries fragile economies. They hide in the west and attack the most vulnerable. They rape, torture and decapitate in their homelands anyone who opposes them or their beliefs. A working knowledge of the terms used and a basic understanding of what drives them is what this book is about. I take a balanced view in my narratives about ISIS, ISL, ISWAP and the multitude of other radical splinter groups that seek to dominate Islam. I describe a little of the history of Islam from Muhammad in a cave to a suicide vest in a concert hall some 700 years later. What would that alleged wise and gentle prophet think had he been alive today? What would he think of the violence? All Abrahamic scriptures, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, mutated by time and re-telling, preach death to its adversaries and non-believers. If we lived just a few hundred years ago or during biblical times we would fear Christianity and the church as much as the west now fear Islam and Sharia law. In sixteenth century England you could be put to death simply for reading the bible in English. Read on ..."
