Michael D. Berdine
Michael Denis Berdine (1945- ) was born in Los Angeles, California. The son of an American oil company executive, he was raised in the Middle East, England, India, Italy and Germany, before returning to the U.S. for university. He has a B.A. and M.A. in Modern British History, an M.A. in Near Eastern Studies, with a focus on the histories of Islam, the Middle East and the British Raj, and a Ph.D. in British Imperial History, with a focus on Britain in the Middle East. His current research is on Sir Mark Sykes, co-author of the Sykes-Picot Agreement, 'godfather' of the Balfour Declaration and man behind the scenes of much of Britain's Middle East strategy and policy during World War One, about whom he is currently writing a book. Since 2009, he has been principal of Cambridge Muslim College, in Cambridge, England (www.cambridgemuslimcollege.org) where, in addition to his administrative duties he also teaches history.

While there are some truths mentioned, most were half-baked, twisted or distorted and without the full story. Other despicable acts mentioned are the work of evil humans who call themselves Muslim, but hardly act as Islam teaches. This is just like the Christian Crusaders, who boiled, roasted and ate babies (documented facts) on the First Crusade, the Spanish Inquisitors who tortured, maimed and killed in the name of Jesus, or Adolf Hitler and his cohorts, ostensibly Christians all, who perpetrated the most heinous crimes against humanity in recorded hitrsoy. None of these acts had anything to do with what Christianity teaches either. So, why identify an entire religion with what a few of its so-called adherents did? Interestingly enough, Muslims wouldn't dream of condemning Christianity for the acts of the Crusaders, Inquisitors, or Hitler, or anyon
Si Michael ini ternyata begitu **** sehingga dia mualaf gara² adhan doank!! Kalo dia mualaf gara² menyadari kekuatan ngesex Muhammad = kekuatan 30 lelaki, naaah itu gw baru setuju!! Hahaha... malah jadi kepala sekolah madrasah di Cambridge lagi. Ampuuun... begitu blo'onnya kah dia?Michael D. Berdine wrote:e else. They believe that it's the individuals who are at fault, not the religion. That's how they see it. So, why can't we? If Muslims or Christians, or those from other faith traditions were to follow the teachings of their faith so similar among all the world's major faiths world over the world would be a much better place. Otherwise, what the author has done here is rehash old stories that have been disproved before and added one or two new ones (with one-sided explanations). This is a book for people who want to believe the worst about Islam and Muslims. As such, it is hardly historical, or factual. I've always found it interesting to see Christians so eager to attack Islam, while Muslims never attack Christianity in response. Perhaps that's because they've been told in the Qur'an not to do so, nor to argue with Christians (except kindly) and consider them closest in faith to themselves.
Some Christians, like the author of this work (if he is a Christian), all too often show Christianity at its worst. This is a trait too many Christians have shown, on behalf of Christianity, against all who disagreed with it since it became the religion of the Roman Empire at the end of the fourth century. This is not to say Muslims haven't done bad things, or been bad people, far from it. But it does say that just as those Christians mentioned earlier who didn't follow their faith and its teachings, so some Muslims not acting as Islam taught have done horrific things, too. As such, they are not considered Muslims like those who flew the hijacked planes into the Twin Towers. Knowledgeable Muslims believe they've gone to hell in a handcart as false martyrs. Whether or not they were actually practicing Muslims, or just using the religion as a cover for their heinous crimes as so many have done since time immemorial, will be left up to a higher authority than us to judge.
In conclusion, the publication of this book was a sad day for tolerance and understanding and, otherwise contributed nothing positive or good but only added immeasurably to ignorance about Muslims and Islam. Today, we are at war, but it's a war led by morally bankrupt and un-Christ-like neoconservative fundamentalist Christians against Islam. And this book has joined in the fray. Michael D. Berdine, Ph.D
