Ali Sina’s book, Understanding Islam and the Muslim Mind

The courageous and insightful Ali Sina has written a book, and he needs people to show interest in buying it in order to encourage his publisher. Please take a look here and support Ali by signing up.

And here are some of the endorsements the book has received (there are more here):

The book is prefaced by the celebrated scholar [and Jihad Watch Board member] Ibn Warraq.

[…]

1- A blisteringly honest, thoroughly documented, and piercingly insightful investigation of the root causes within Islam of the fanaticism and violence that today threatens the entire world. Should be required reading at the State Department and the White House. — Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades (Regnery)

2- A powerful, no holds barred look at an ideology of hate and what must be done to eradicate it. This book pulls no punches. A must read for anyone seeking to understand Islamist terrorism” Professor Kim Ezra Shienbaum, Ph.D Dept. of Political Science, Rutgers University Camden, NJ. Chief Editor of Beyond Jihad.

[…]

9- The war against jihad can and must be won, in spite of the Western elite class that is instinctively prone to appeasement and betrayal. The first task is to analyze frankly the identity and character of the enemy and the nature of the threat. It is essential to discard the taboos and to discuss Islam without fear or guilt, or the shackles of mandated thinking. Ali Sina’s new book makes an important contribution to that objective.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles,” says Sun Tzu. Thanks to this book we know the jihadist enemy a little better — his core beliefs, his role models, his track-record, his mindset, his modus operandi, and his intentions. We also know his weaknesses, which are many, above all his inability to develop a prosperous economy or a functional, harmonious and good society.

The main problem remains with ourselves, however, with those among us who have the power to make policy and shape opinions, and who will reject and condemn Ali Sina’s diagnosis. Our own elite class treats the jihadist mindset as a pathology that can and should be treated by treating causes external to Islam itself. The result is a plethora of proposed multiculturalist “cures” that are as likely to succeed in making us safe from terrorism as snake oil is likely to cure leukemia. Dr. S. Trifkovic, Foreign Affairs Editor CHRONICLES

    Islam’s continued inability to develop a prosperous economy or a functional, harmonious and good society speaks volumes about their false god and plagarize-from-the-jews prophet. Their societies are violent, hate filled, terrorist societies.

    I have read some of Ali Sina’s material in the past…..she is a muslim gone mad.

    She says that Islam has a foundation built on sand …and a few quick nudges will push it over…topple it because it is rotten to the core.

    Ofcourse nothing could be further from this in reality…even if she is correct….who is going to read her book….the infedel…and only those “in the know”.

    The peoples that need to read it are those muslims in Afghanistan & Pakistan and the Saud….many who only read in urdu…others who don’t read at all!

    How are you gonna persuade those people to read her “material”.

    I will want to read her book…and have asked my son to get one for me in the UK…but I think this is much like in pissing in the wind….

    it will make little to no difference to Islam.

    naseem please forgive me if I suggest that you have missed the point here – the people who need to read this are the people in the west . Because only they can have the power to bring down Islam once they understand the true nature of the beast – we will be the people who eventually free the worlds muslims from Islam which has been a terrible load for them to have carried this past 1300 years – sincerely

    ALI SINA Your story touched my heart. I have friends who escaped Iran in 79……I will buy as many copies of your book as I can….Please scream louder about the evil of Islam.

  5. says

    Buy a copy for a dhimmi!

    Think of it like dentures. If you have teeth, be kind and purchase a set for someone still gumming ineffectually on the hard reality of the “religion of peace”.

    Thanks Ali Sina!

    Sink those intellectual choppers in Mohammad’s sorry dictatorial butt!

    (Naseem- the more common expression is “spitting in the wind“, not “pissing” -which, if you really are a “woman”, wouldn’t even make sense, aerodynamically. Or are you just as stupid as the “prophet” Mohammad said all women were? Worth only half of a man? He also noted that most of the inhabitants of Hell were female, because they are so flighty and weak in their faith compared to big, strong men.)

    I’ve ordered my copy of ‘Understanding Islam and the Muslim Mind’ by that crazy illusive author Alison Sinatra.
    BTW, Your beard needs trimming Naseem.

    Our “powerful” have become so entrenched in the doctrine of political correctness that rational discourse on any tendentious issue is utterly impossible. The current immigration debate is a good example. Republicans are selling their souls to appeal to minorities and prove that they are not “racists”, and for what? The minority special interest groups will always favor the socialist Democratic Party because it exists to encourage victimization, redistribute wealth, and cater to the “poor” at the expense of the middle class. If the horrible immigration bill passed by the traitors in the US Senate should be endorsed by the House, the middle class in the United States is history; the United States as we know it is history.

    This country desperately needs a third party to represent the marginalized majority that have been ignored while lawmakers curry favor with dozens of special interest groups. The current two-party domination of American politics has become a race to see who can fawn and cajole the minority electorate and potential electorate with the most finess, as they all but accuse the people who elected them of being “divisive” and “racist.” They are leading us to ruin.

    It is absolutely despicable that NOBODY within the halls of government or the military understand the threat of Islam despite ample evidence of its bloody history and doctrine, and a daily barrage of CLUES that clearly explicate its goal. I heard a General on Fox News this morning make this ridiculous comment about the war in Iraq (paraphrased): “The conflict in Iraq is like a “reverse” Crusades. The Christians went into the Middle East during the Middle Ages to forcibly convert muslims to Christianity and now this situation is reversed.”
    How pathetic is this ignorance? And it permeates our society and government. Children are being instructed in our pathetic, left-wing schools that only whites can be racists. All racial hate emanating from blacks or other ethnic groups toward whites doesn’t count as racism because it is justified. The liberals scream for peace but foment hate, resentment, and contention, and in their own societies no less!

    Susanp-

    This General should be cashiered for gross negligence of his duty to “know thy enemy”.

    And his formula is absurd, unless, by it, he means that our troops are in Iraq to be converted to Islam?

    The Crusaders never went to convert anyone, but to defend the Christian pilgrims trying to reach Jerusalam from the plundering Mohammedans. The Muslims, when they weren’t trying to extract hefty ransoms for the “Frankish” princes they captured, did try to forcibly convert Christian prisoners, and beheaded those who refused to bow to Allah (Saladin, that wonderful, peaceful, paragon of nobility included, according to an Arab historian of the period who fought by his side.)

    General nonsense, however you try to make something palatable from his scrambled ‘logic’.

    I guess they only teach the Classics comic book version of history to our military brass.

    Brass monkey, in this case.

    Since Cain killed Able this family of ours has been letting blood. Jacob gained the willful submission of Esau; Esau hugged Jacob instead of killing him, but no one seems to get the point. You do what you have to do to gain . . . willful submission. It takes time, trickery, cunning, hard work, perseverance . . . on and on . . . and eventually . . . with a little help from friends gained along the way . . . the opportunity comes. Overall the mind set must be the restoration of the family. Any thinking and planning without that motivation at the core is doomed to the same frustration as Islam’s attempts to develop a robust economy for the larger society.

    Summarize: With the restoration of the greater family at the core of our motivation we do whatever has to be done to get there.

    I am interested in Ali Sina’s Book. Of course my agenda is to find cohorts in the cause for family restoration.

    I used to have zero faith in Muslims to be capable of distinguishing good from evil, but after months of reading faithfreedom.com, I understood otherwise. Ali Sina has done yeoman’s service to mankind by encouraging so many to convert out of this death cult. His take no prisoners approach, and his willingness to denounce Islam as evil, is refreshing, given the political correctness one sees everywhere. I wonder what he’d think about the assertion about Islam being dangerous and violent? Oops…

    The book, from its title, seems to be for Infidels – why would Muslims need to understand Islam and the Muslim mind? They already do. The website is what he wants Muslims to read, and then conclude whether or not Islam is what they wish to be a part of. A number of them have concluded no, including, surprisingly, some Arabs, from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Syria.

    I read his testimony from a Palestinian woman the other day, and was touched by how he could unravel all her anti-Israeli arguments. Of course, it helps if one’s typing, and doesn’t get interrupted mid-sentence every other minute.

    P.S. Naseem, your lund is showing. Trying to “piss in the wind”? Face the direction of the wind while doing it, and don’t squat.

  11. says

    The citizens of the world can no longer afford the luxury of catering to the ‘sensibilities’ of religious folk – including Muslims.

    Instead of side-stepping in fear of giving ‘offense’, it needs to be demonstrated to Muslim believers that this Qur’an, this fountainhead of fervour and discord, is not worthy of their faith, not to mention their lives, and is NOT a word-for-word copy of tablets existing eternally in heaven.

    Undermine faith in the Qur’an as the word of God.

    There is no other way!

  12. says

    Ali Sina’s website, http://www.faithfreedom.org, and at that site, especially his own debates with Muslims, are of great value for those wishing to understand Islam, and in mentally preparing oneself to withstand the siren-songs of and taqiyya-and-tu-quoque masters who are everywhere, in the army of apologists for Islam who try whatever they can to keep what should be obvious truths from being apprehended. Ali Sina’s book should be bought, or rather several copies should be bought and distributed to those whose right comprehension of things means much to you. Libraries should be asked to purchase it. It should be mentioned in classes, in conversation, at work. Do what you can to publicize it, because there is no publicity budget for a book of this kind, despite its obvious merit. Start with that, but don’t end there. Make sure that it is published, and that it does not disappear.

    Hugh or Robert:

    After reading Naseem’s post earlier, I have a technical question… Should we refer to Ali Sina is “he” or “she” in our posts?

  14. says

    It was many weeks ago when a poster here first brought my attention to this and provided the link to Sina’s book. I signed up then and tried to sign up again today but double sign-ups are not permitted. IIRC the tally back then was 2,000+ something. I see its now crossed the 3,000 mark but that still strikes me as rather slow going so no reader genuinely concerned about the global jihad should assume that they don’t need to do their part to get that tally up to 5,000 (diffused responsibility or whatever that term that was coined to explain why no one came to the aid of Kitty Genovese). Because they do. And I appreciate the posters here who have been watching the tally and periodically reminding people to sign up because there’s a hit and miss aspect to people even being aware of the book, given so many comments threads on this site these days and how quickly they get shoved off into cyberspace.
