Product Description

Islamic sharia law (primitive laws purported to have been given by Muhammad to his followers over a thousand years ago) is finding its way into non-Muslim countries as Islam spread throughout Asia and Europe. Many Westerners, unaware of the threat sharia and Islam pose, passively allow or actively endorse this radical religious system of governance, but Nonie Darwish knows better. Having lived under sharia for half of her life, she accepted it unquestioningly until shortly before becoming a Christian, and now can bring her experience within Islam to inform others about the dangers of this system and its implications for non-Muslims. Cruel and Usual Punishment shows how sharia advocates the revocation of basic human rights and the destruction of democracy and Western culture written by an author who knows what both sides of the veil look like.

Publisher's Description

Nonie Darwish lived for thirty years in a majority Muslim nation. Everything about her lifeⷕfamily, sexuality, hygiene, business, banking, contracts, economics, politics, social issues, everythingⷕwas dictated by the Islamic law code known as Sharia.

But Sharia isn't staying in majority Muslim nations. Darwish now lives in the West and brings a warning; the goal of radical Islam is to bring Sharia law to your country. If that happens, the fabric of Western law and liberty will be ripped in two. Under Sharia law:

  • A woman can be beaten for talking to men who are not her relatives and flogged for not wearing a headdress
  • Daughters, sisters, and wives can be legally killed by the men in their family
  • Non-Muslims can be beheaded, and their Muslim killers will not receive the death penalty
  • Certain kinds of child molestation are allowed
  • The husband of a "rebellious" wife can deny her medical care or place her under house arrest

Think it can't happen? In 2008, Englandⷕonce the seat of Western liberty and now the home of many Muslim immigrantsⷕdeclared that Sharia courts in Britain have the force of law.

When Muslim populations reach as little as 1 or 2 percent, says Darwish, they begin making demands of the larger community, such as foot-level faucets for washing before praying in public schools, businesses, and airports. "Airports in Kansas City, Phoenix, and Indianapolis are among those who have already installed foot baths for Muslim cab drivers," writes Darwish. These demands test how far Westerners will go in accommodating the Muslim minority. How far will they push? The Organization of the Islamic Conference works to Islamize international human rights laws and apply Sharia "standards" for blasphemy to all nations. The penalty for blasphemy? Death.

Weaving personal experience together with extensive documentation and research, Darwish exposes the facts and reveals the global threat posed by Sharia law. Anyone concerned about Western rights and liberties ignores her warning and analysis at their peril.

    I would highly recommend Cruel and Usual Punishment for every Christian in the western part of the world. There is so much that we do not know or understand about the Islam faith. Nonie Darwish, in an exceptional way opens our eyes to reveal the truth about Islam and Sharia. She has risked her life and that of her family in revealing the horrendous way the women and girls are treated. This book has shown me how these nations that follow Islam are locked in a prison of their own religion. The men and women alike are not free to search the truth about God. It is imperative in these last days that we understand this world that is so different from ours to minister to them the light and truth of the gospel. Many people are suffering and it breaks my heart. Please read this book and pray for these nations that are enslaved to Islam. Please also pray for Nonie and her family that God will keep them safe and reward her abundantly for her courage and hard work.

    Read this book NOW! You will learn more about Sharia law, and Muslim men and women than you ever knew before (and perhaps more than you ever wanted to know.) Nonie Darwish will speak powerfully to your mind and your heart. I often consider doing reviews on CBD's wonderful wealth of books but decide I am just too busy. With this book, I felt compelled to do so!
