Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword
Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword is a study of Islam and the men leading it in the twenty-first century.
I am neither a preacher nor a politician. I am an author caught up in a sensitive subject most secular societies are unfamiliar with. This book is a rational explanation without bias. It is based on both historical fact and books written by modern Muslim leaders themselves, it is not an attack on the religion based on personal agenda.
My research told a different story than what has become common on the editorial pages of American newspapers and contradictory to what the leaders of the American Muslim community are saying. The fact however is, that, with limited exceptions, the term moderate is not compatible when used in a sentence with the word Islam, except to describe what Islam is not!
"Islam is a revolutionary doctrine and system that overturns governments. It seeks to overturn the whole universal social order and to establish its structure anew. Islam seeks the world. It is not satisfied by a piece of land but demands the whole universeJihad is at the same time offensive and defensiveThe Islamic party does not hesitate to utilize the means of war to implement its goal." Sayyid Abdul-Ala Mawdudi - Jihad in Islam This Pakistani / Islamic Leader / Teacher / Author died in Buffalo, New York.

This book should be mandatory reading for any free world leader who would wish to understand what the west is up against in the radical Islamic world. We Americans are painfully ignorant of the history of Islam and fail to understand the difference between how we view and pray to a merciful God and how the Muslim world only worships a God who demands the destruction of all who would not abandon their own faith for Islam.
Mr. Pat is to be commended for creating such a concise and easily understood treatise on a subject that very well may decide the future of western civilization.
