Summary
  • "When Nonie Darwish was a girl of eight, her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. A high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza, he was considered a "shahid, " a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society." "Educated by Catholic nuns in Cairo, Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing. Why the love of violence and hatred of Jews and Christians? Why the tolerance of glaring social injustices? Why blame America and Israel for every problem? Darwish was devastated to discover that even her own family - well educated and upper middle class - believed America had it coming on September 11."
  • "Today Darwish thrives as an American citizen, a Christian, a conservative Republican, and an advocate for Israel. To many, she is now an infidel. But she is risking her comfort and her safety to reveal the many politically incorrect truths about Muslim culture that she knows firsthand."--Back cover
Summary
A Cairo-raised daughter of an Egyptian military officer describes how she was raised to hate Americans and Jewish people and submit to dictatorship, her decision to relocate to America, and her efforts to promote peace and tolerance at the risk of her own safety
