EXTREME ISLAM explores the fundamentalist current, whose strict interpretations of the Holy Qur'an has led it to declare war against secular nations, and even members of its own religion whose lenient ideas are considered apostate, a sin punishable by death.
Explosive as the views it presents, EXTREME ISLAM cuts to the chase, and allows the major voices of Islamic militancy to speak for themselves. A wide spectrum of interviews, essays, political cartoons, posters, poems and stories are collected together to confront the reader with important and rarely seen perspective of a movement that opposes almost everything considered holy by America and Western civilization.
Ground zero of the showdown is Jerusalem, where fundamentalists from Christianity and Judaism are joining the fray, plotting to destroy al-Aqsa, one of Islam's holiest shrines, to foment world war and Apocalypse.
