IDEALOGICAL JIHAD: COME MR ALY LET US REASON TOGETHER
by Vickie Janson

Ideological Jihad was written as an open letter to Waleed Aly in response to his book People Like Us; How Arrogance is Dividing Islam and the West. I believe it's so much more than arrogance or ignorance. Ideological Jihad just means 'struggle of ideas' and is a mixture of personal testimony and comparative theology in the very current and public debate about the so-called clash of civilisations. It primarily addresses the spiritual divide between what can be viewed as the Christian tradition of the West, which encompasses the separation of church and state, and the Islamist tradition which unifies mosque and state. The biggest takeaway is this: religious beliefs have political consequences.

While highlighting the rising Islamisation of Australian society, Ideological Jihad also responds to other issues raised by Mr Aly including secularism, women and Jihad.

A BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF ISLAM
by Dr Zuhdi Jasser

Among the unsettling social shifts in the wake of 9/11 was the global attention paid to Islam. Here in the United States, we became divided, often sadly along partisan lines, between those who believed every Muslim was a potential threat and those who believed no Muslim could do wrong.

For conservative Wisconsin native and former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, these radical times meant facing a new reality as a devout Muslim and a patriot—a certain betrayal within his faith, and a need to answer a question that crossed the minds of even the most sensitive and politically correct: “Can a good Muslim be a good American as well?”
Jasser founded the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) to instill in young American Muslims an appreciation for the distinctively positive impact that this nation’s ideals of liberty have had upon the world. As a nationally recognised expert on Muslim radicalisation, he offers non-Muslims a definitive comprehension of the difference between Islam and the spiritual cancer known as Islamism, or political Islam, and how violence and extremism run counter to Islam’s true teachings. As he persuasively argues, until we acknowledge the threat of Islamism in all its forms, the majority of Americans will be gulled into recognising only the most obvious: terrorism.

In A Battle for the Soul of Islam, Jasser embraces both his faith and his country while asking the hard questions.

THE HIDDEN HALF - WOMEN AND ISLAM
by Stuart Robinson

Almost half of the global population of 7.2 billion people in 2013-14 was estimated to be female. This book is about women. More specifically, it is about women and Islam.

It does not seek to sensationalise the subject matter, although some information may seem that way to any reader exposed to it for the first time. Nor should it be seen as an attempt to moralise about any practices within Islam or how followers of that religion may regard or treat non-Muslim women. It simply records widespread practice and the authoritative religious texts that validate many of these practices.

It also seeks to motivate the reader to engage with Muslims in society so that God’s love can heal and transform their world through practical actions of Christian grace.
What People are Saying:
"Stuart Robinson must be congratulated for giving voice to The Hidden Half. One can only weep at the systemic persecution, humiliation, deprivation, dehumanisation, ludicrous rulings and litany of injustices against those women steeped in this shame and honour culture. These accounts should compel us to speak up and reject the paralysing fear of ‘Islamophobia’ in order to unshackle and assist the brave women represented here. In multicultural Australia, this is a heart wrenching reminder that we must reject sacralising culture when it should be scrutinised." -Vickie Janson

"This book opens a window into Islam’s treatment of women. It is an essential resource for everyone concerned about human rights in our globally connected world." -Dr Mark Durie, Quranic Theology scholar
