Product Description
Al Qaeda and its sympathizers are often viewed as isolated fanatics outside of the mainstream Muslim population outlaws not only in the West but also in respectable Muslim nations. This book argues just the opposite: that in fact terrorism is the logical outgrowth of an international Islamic political agenda that is endorsed and funded by Islam’s major players Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Pakistan. Author Moorthy S. Muthuswamy labels these nations the “Axis of Jihad”. For decades, he says, they have been devoted to extending their spheres of influence in the name of religion.

Utilizing a recent groundbreaking statistical analysis of Islamic doctrines and an analysis based upon the outlook of Muslims, he discusses the possibility that Islam is less a religion and more an ideology of conquest.

Muthuswamy urges US policymakers to rethink the War on Terror along the lines of the successfully waged Cold War against communism. The nuclear physicist-author makes the following main point:

Like the Cold War, this war is more a contest of ideas than armed conflict. Rather than placing the emphasis on military might and costly wars abroad, the West should invest the bulk of its effort in a science-based ideological war, one that is directed at discrediting the simplistic, conquest-oriented theological roots of Islamist indoctrination and jihadist politics.

Muthuswamy also emphasizes the importance of a largely non-Muslim India in the War on Terror, in view of its location and size. The India-born author gives a fascinating description of modern Islamic conquest in South Asia. His insights into the Islamist siege and subversion of Indian democracy should be revealing for the citizens of western democracies.

The author asserts that the West needs India in dealing with the conundrum that is Pakistan, as they both share language, culture, and more with each other.

This fresh perspective on the ongoing threat from Islamist terrorism offers much to ponder about the future course of US foreign policy initiatives.

  1. This is not a book of facts and analysis, but of opinions and bias. Mutuswamy’s book is full of cliches and tired type-casting that have been repeated over and over. It says nothing new, and what is says lack credibility. His argument is simple Islam and Muslims are evil — I guess he wants them eradicated. The problem is not so much the bias of the book but that anyone with basic knowledge of the topic can see that he knows little about Islam and Muslims. What he is an expert in is hate-mongering. Do yourself a favor, skip this book and read something serious on the subject from someone who knows what they are talking about.

  2. Seeking Mr. Muthuswamy’s opinion on Islam would be akin to asking a Bolshevik to elucidate upon capitalism. You’re not going to get unbiased insight in either case. Muthuswamy has an agenda against several countries that he has attempted to use this book to achieve. This is a crass and transparent attempt at maligning people based simply on their adherence to a different faith. If you are interested in a highly biased and bigoted view of the world, please by all means, read this book. If, on the other hand, you are interested in a more balanced appraisal of reality you would be better served looking elsewhere.

  3. Most of the facts in the book are questionable at best, and on top of that, he even has his historic facts of near history (British colonial era) wrong. He also avoids talking about certain points and stresses on circumstantial evidence. You need to have alot of faith in his research to believe his ideas, which I can’t.

  4. Well written. Perhaps too much detail re the problems India is having with Islam and Pakistan but those problems may be foreshadowing problems we will have with Islam in the US (google CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood). I evaluate news stories about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan much differently now, as well as the atrocities perpetrated by ‘political islam’ in India, far too often based in Pakistan. Islam is certainly not a religion of peace if you’re not Islamic!

  5. This book dissects the deep psyche of Islam, one of the three powerful organized religions that emerged from Abrahamic faith. The book is well written and provides some powerful arguments about the invasive nature of Islamic faith. Many ancient and modern scholars including some of the greatest renaissance scholars studied organized religions, and were shocked to find how monotheistic faith could be easily manipulated by a few elites to control people and cause massive war/destruction. In ancient Greek,and India, monotheistic faith was therefore considered dangerous, and evil. So, I believe that what the author wrote about Islam could equally be applied to the other two monotheistic faiths of Judaism and Christianity. Thus, the real cold war should be played between polytheism and monotheism.
