Review of rotten book by the Sookhdevil
Ben White of Fulcrum, a website for evangelical Anglican Christians, has drawn my attention to a review he has written of Patrick Sookhdeo’s 2007 book Global Jihad. While I’ve not read Sookhdevil’s book, this review examines a whole load of the distortions we used to regularly see in his articles for the Standard, the Spectator and even the Telegraph - accusing Muslims of taqiyya as some sort of religious principle, completely ignoring whole aspects of recent history, and basic and stupid historical errors (like describing Hizbullah as a Palestinian organisation). Even if you don’t have time to waste on reading hundreds of pages of Sookhdeo’s drivel, which I don’t, this review is a must-read.
