From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9–This title poses a question that has been in the forefront of many peoples' minds in recent years. Eleven opinions are presented here. The book begins with Osama bin Laden's justification for his attacks on Americans. The portrayal of Islam as a predominantly peaceful religion by President George W. Bush is countered by evangelist Pat Robertson. Additional perspectives are offered by Islamic scholars, a former Muslim, a female Muslim reformer, and a rabbi who is an expert on Islam. Most of the contributors offer excerpts from the Koran to support their views, demonstrating that individual interpretation of religious texts is easily accomplished. Although the selections present both sides of the question, the belligerence and oppressive aspects of the religion and culture make the strongest impression. Two earlier volumes in the series present many of the same concepts expressed by contributors to this book. Auriana Ojeda's Islamic Fundamentalism (2003) and Lauri S. Friedman's What Motivates Suicide Bombers? (2005, both Gale) offer additional perspectives on Islamist values. All three volumes include reliable and substantial book and periodical bibliographies with little overlap in content. The annotated list of organizations to contact for further information in Einfeld's title is a blend of those in the earlier books with a few additions.–Ann G. Brouse, Steele Memorial Library, Elmira, NY
