Democracy, Civic Virtue, & Islam: The Muslim-American Jihad Against Extremism
There is no greater struggle for Muslims than the fight for clear recognition of what Islam is and what it is committed to. The Qur'an prescribes a basic, sacred commitment to the preservation of Life.
Yet, among Muslims are groups which defile these teachings with horrific acts of violence against innocents while claiming to obey religious principles. These groups threaten all civilized notions of human society.
This book introduces an American community of Muslims and their guiding Islamic principle of citizenship responsibility. It presents Islam's true character and delivers a debilitating blow to schemes and ideologies of extremists.
