    A sourcebook for misinformation

    One of a genre of books with the avowed mission of "destroying Islam", much as some members of the "new Atheist" movement show a confidence that they will "destroy religion". There is confirmation bias aplenty for those who feel they need it, but very little factual information about Islam or Muslims. This man is no Karen Armstrong, with her comprehensive knowledge of world religions, and certainly no Reza Aslan with his encyclopaedic knowledge of history, theology and world politics. If facts are what you're after, Warner will give you half truths and stereotypes, but also some insight into the world as viewed through the lens of Islamophobia, starting with the baffling statement that one of the most diverse religious groups on the planet, ethnically, linguistically, politically and doctrinally, was fully represented by 19 Arabs on September 11, 2001. In reality, the average Muslim isn't even an Arab. The introduction provides a measurement of the writer's ignorance in his "helpful" glossary of terms, stating, for instance that "Sharia" means "Islamic law" (it doesn't) among other inaccuracies. For an accurate knowledge of Islam, even if you want to take an adversarial stance, you'd be better off taking a course in religious studies. Warner is to understanding Islam that the thalidomide marketers were to fetal development.
