On Feb. 21, 2006, the Syrian-born and raised Wafa Sultan gave one of the most provocative interviews ever given by a Muslim woman on the Al Jazeera network. In the middle of the interview she told her male Muslim interviewer that it was her turn to speak. And, she did. She told him to "shut up". This simple, yet radical, act of a Muslim woman asserting herself in the face of a Muslim man, catapulted her to fame. Now, for the first time, Wafa Sultan tells her story and airs her provocativeviews in a book that pulls no punches in looking clearly at Islam and the threat it poses for the rest of the world. Her viewpoint and opinions were hard won: As an intelligent young girl who would someday become a psychiatrist, she grew up in Syria under the thumb of a culture ruled by a god who hates women and all they represent. It is from this kernel of female hatred at the heart of Islam that Wafa Sultan builds her case against the mullahs and their followers bent on destroying the West. A God Who Hates is a fiery book that will remind readers why, even at a time when we are reaching out to others, we must be ever-vigilant about the threat Islam poses towards the West.

Interesting insights into life in pre-war Syria and Islamic culture.

Apparently adoption doesn't occur in Muslim countries. Adoption occurred in pre-Islamic times but as documented in the Koran and Hadiths, Mohamed lusted over the wife of his step-son. To take this new wife from his step-son, bed, and marry her Mohamed disallowed adoption in Islam (having Allah "recite" though him rationale for this in the Koran). Thus, for example, apparently none of the orphan children from Muslim Bosnia were adopted by Muslims. They were adopted by Christians.

Islam was built on Arab raiding culture; justifying taking booty, slaves, killing. As recited in the Koran, Mohamed was due 1/5 of the booty. The author thinks this raiding culture continues to be the essence of Muslim thinking.

Along with Ayaan Hirsi Ali's books, Infidel and The Caged Virgin, both authors give a first hand woman's view of what it was like living in an Islamic theocracy.
