My Year Inside Radical Islam: A Critique
In 2007 Daveed Gartenstein-Ross wrote a memoir entitled: 'My Year Inside Radical Islam'. The book outlines a journey starting from a liberal Jewish background, to becoming a Muslim, and, finally, converting to Christianity. A critical fulcrum which leveraged his journey toward the latter conversion involved becoming entangled with a fundamentalist group of Muslims in Ashland, Oregon when he was still a Muslim. The present critique of Mr. Gartenstein-Ross's book takes issue not with the decisions he made at various junctures along his journey, but, rather, explores the manner in which Mr. Gartenstein-Ross came to permit a Muslim group of spiritual counterfeiters to distort his understanding concerning the actual nature of Islam.
