Return to Book Page. Nonie Darwish lived for thirty years in a majority Muslim nation. Everything about her life? But Sharia isn't staying in majority Muslim nations.
Darwish now lives in the West and brings a warning; the goal of radical Nonie Darwish lived for thirty years in a majority Muslim nation. Darwish now lives in the West and brings a warning; the goal of radical Islam is to bring Sharia law to your country.
If that happens, the fabric of Western law and liberty will be ripped in two. Under Sharia law: A woman can be beaten for talking to men who are not her relatives and flogged for not wearing a headdress Daughters, sisters, and wives can be legally killed by the men in their family Non-Muslims can be beheaded, and their Muslim killers will not receive the death penalty Certain kinds of child molestation are allowed The husband of a "rebellious" wife can deny her medical care or place her under house arrest Think it can't happen?
In , England? When Muslim populations reach as little as 1 or 2 percent, says Darwish, they begin making demands of the larger community, such as foot-level faucets for washing before praying in public schools, businesses, and airports. These demands test how far Westerners will go in accommodating the Muslim minority. How far will they push? The Organization of the Islamic Conference works to Islamize international human rights laws and apply Sharia "standards" for blasphemy to all nations.
The penalty for blasphemy? Weaving personal experience together with extensive documentation and research, Darwish exposes the facts and reveals the global threat posed by Sharia law. Anyone concerned about Western rights and liberties ignores her warning and analysis at their peril.

Its interesting how every Muslim I chat with totally disagrees with the facts presented in this book. They say Islam is a religion of peace and freedom as well as love and generosity. After reading the Quran I can see how both parties believe they are correct. For one: the Quran is very vague and poetic; good luck trying to get a solid foundation out of it.
Every verse can be easily twisted to mean many things. Sharia Law is outside of the Quran, its laws are made to support what Islam stands fo Its interesting how every Muslim I chat with totally disagrees with the facts presented in this book.
Sharia Law is outside of the Quran, its laws are made to support what Islam stands for and to bring about the endgame of allah. There is nothing peaceful or loving about allah's eternity: basically allah will be burning alive all non-muslims in hell and replenishing their skin so they can suffer some more Everything in Sharia Law seems to feed this perversion and submission.
I fail to see the love and freedom. This book has all the facts. Is it true? Thats easy to figure out; just watch Islamic societies behave around the world to find the truth. IF Muslims are the most wonderful, loving, generous, forgiving, compassionate, tolerant, humble communities then Nonie Darwish is full of crap. If you want to test this for yourself: Its easy - just go on a Muslim chatroom and mention that you like Jews and Israel. Then sit back and watch the hatred fly.
OF course some Muslims are wonderful peaceful people these are the ones who know nothing about their religion or its history. Here's something I haven't tried yet: Ask some Muslims if its okay to go to Sudan or Iran or Afghanistan and convert some Islamic folks to another religion.
Sharia Law says you should be put to death for this. View all 4 comments. I first became aware of Islam when I met my Uncle Mike as an adult. By then, he had left Christianity behind, much to my immense sorrow, and converted to Islam. I had long conversations with him about it because I love him so, and he finally went and talked to his Imam and got a couple of book recommendations to "help me feel better about my Uncle Mike converting to Islam.
I wasn't comforted. I began to dig deeper: Learning the history of Islam, where the conflict and hatred be I first became aware of Islam when I met my Uncle Mike as an adult. I began to dig deeper: Learning the history of Islam, where the conflict and hatred began between Muslim, Jews and everyone else and why. What I learned wasn't confidence inspiring, I didn't like, at all, the rules by Muslims lived. Now, I'm a Mormon. I don't drink alcoholic drinks. I don't smoke. I believe in chastity, virtue and integrity.
I have remained faithful to my husband and will continue to do so throughout eternity. I believe in the golden rule of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and "Love your neighbor as yourself. One of the book's my uncle gave me had a terrifying chapter 6, Islam's United World Order.
In essence, the chapter spoke of every non-Muslim being forced to convert or die. They intend to take over every single nation and instill Sharia Law across the world. Nope, I wasn't comforted by this at all. All it did was make me mad.
I believe strongly in America's First Amendment Rights of freedom of religion, in other words, that we are able and allowed to worship according to dictates according to our consciences, within the bounds of the law. Meaning, you can't go out and commit an honor killing in American with having your butt thrown in jail for first degree murder.
Because of my beliefs, I abhor cruel, vicious and senseless violence toward anyone and yet, Islamic law seems to be the greatest proponent of the greatest cruelty toward women, children and those they deem to be apostates or infidels.
Having been born into and raised in a Muslim family, Noni shares with her readers her first hand experiences of being forced to live under Sharia Law and inner workings and machinations of Muslim faith. She does not do so out of anger or vengeance, but merely out of a desire to warn the rest of the world of what Islam has in store for us.
When Nonie Darwish was a girl of eight, her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. Yet at an early age, Darwish developed a skeptical eye about her own Muslim culture and upbringing.
Why the love of violence and hatred of Jews and Christians? Why the tolerance of glaring social injustices? Why blame America and Israel for everything? Today Darwish thrives as an American citizen, a Christian, a conservative Republican, and an advocate for Israel. To many, she is now an infidel. But she is risking her comfort and her safety to reveal the many politically incorrect truths about Muslim culture that she knows firsthand.
Living under Sharia law for the first thirty years of her life,a virtual slave to Islamic law, Darwish never questioned or challenged her rights--or dared to even think about the validity of Sharia laws. She didn't try to examine what Sharia was, how it came about or why she followed it. But she doesn't believe the lies anymore, and now she wants to share her experiences with the Western world. Cruel and Usual Punishment is an insider's look at how Muslims sacrifice their basic human rights to obey the archaic and brutal laws handed down to their prophet centuries ago.
Heed this warning: Sharia Law is attempting to infiltrate Western culture and destroy democracy.
