For Samuel P. Huntington, read THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS, passim, but particularly pages 109-120 and 183-266 (and most particularly the chapter entitled INCIDENCE: ISLAM'S BLOODY BORDERS, PP. 254-258). I quote a footnote from page 258:
No single statement in my FOREIGN AFFAIRS article attracted more critical attention than: "Islam has bloody borders." I made that judgment on the basis of a casual survey of intercivilizational conflicts. Quantitative evidence from every disinterested source conclusively demonstrates its validity.
Ibn Warraq was once a Muslim but has become a secular humanist. His book WHY I AM NOT A MUSLIM (a title that echoes Bertrand Russel's WHY I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN) earned him a death fatwa, a badge of honor he shares with the Bangladeshi doctor Taslima Nasrin (she earned it for her book SHAME), and, of course, Salman Rushdie. I HIGHLY recommend you avail yourself of several insiders' views as to the virulent, murderous and uncompromising toxicity of the Islamist memeplex by accessing the website of the Institute for the Secularization of Islamic Society, to be found at:
In particular, I recommend you read the articles that may be found in the upper left hand corner of this page.
