Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel, and…
No descriptions found.
When Darwish was eight, her father died leading a Fedayeen raid into Israel. Her family moved back to Cairo, where they were honored as survivors of a martyr for jihad. She grew up learning the same lessons as millions of Muslim children: to hate Jews, destroy Israel, oppose America, and submit to dictatorship. But Darwish became appalled by the anger and hatred in her culture, and in 1978 she emigrated to America, where she lectures and writes on behalf of moderate Arabs. Extremists have threatened her life. Here, she speaks out against the dark side of her native culture--women abused, the poor and uneducated mistreated by the elites, bribery and corruption as a way of life. Her former friends and neighbors blamed the their troubles on Jews and Americans, but Darwish rejects their bigotry and calls for the Arab world to make peace with the West.--From publisher description.
