What do Muslims like Zuhdi Jasser, Raheel Raza, and Mike Mohamed Ghouse have in common? They play Fantasy Islam: Fantasy Islam: A game in which an audience of non-Muslims wish with all their hearts that Islam was a "Religion of Peace," and a Muslim strives to fulfill that wish by presenting a personal version of Islam that has little foundation in Islamic Doctrine. This is a game that is even played in the Kafir (disbeliever) edition by non-Muslims like John Esposito, Georgetown University's Professor of Islamic Studies. Have you ever wondered: do Christians, Jews and Muslims really believe in the same God? Does the Koran really praise Jews and command Muslims to treat the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) with respect? Is it really "radical" to stone adulterers and cut off the hands of thieves? Can Muslims really reject the Koran? Does the word "Jihad" really have nothing to do with a "Holy War"? Did the Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota really create a book describing its version of Islam that included an endorsement by an imam who appeared to be a Hamas supporter, who referred to Israelis as terrorists, and who believed that Shariah Law should be enforced in American communities where Muslims are the majority? In his fifth book about Islam Dr. Kirby examines these versions of Islam and others like them, and shows how far removed they are from the Islamic Doctrine found in the Koran and the teachings of Muhammad. This book gives you the information you need to counter many of today's popular myths about Islam while gaining a better understanding of that religion.
