A political and personal odyssey from hatred to love

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.

Yet at an early age, Darwish developed a skeptical eye about 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 everything?

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.

From the Back Cover:

"Nonie Darwish a woman of great courage with an amazing story to tell.... Readers who pick up her book will find their views of the world irrevocably changed before they put it down."
-David Horowitz, author of Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left

"All Americans should note well the reasons why Muslims now consider her an 'infidel' -- this could be the most important lesson non-Muslims in the West will ever learn."
-Robert Spencer, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)

"Indispensable insight into the world of Islamic radicalism and jihad.... This inspiring tale of redemption will serve as an uplifting reminder to proponents of democratic values in the Middle East that our message of equality and God-given freedom is inexorable and will yet penetrate the resistance of the jihadists to find its way into the hearts and minds of the people of the Arab World."
-Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, author of It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good

"Anyone who wants to understand the real meaning of the clash of civilizations between radical Islam and the West should read this book."
-Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado, author of In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security

"Now They Call Me Infidel is a book of great humanity, intelligence, and courage. If ever there is to be peace between Arabs and Israelis, it will have to be along the lines depicted by Nonie Darwish."
-David Pryce-Jones, senior editor, National Review

"This is a breakthrough book.... Nonie Darwish is one of the most compelling voices for moderate Islam and against extremist violence."
-John Loftus, President, the Intelligence Summit

"Nonie Darwish indicts the Middle Eastern and Islamic culture she left behind, exposing what she calls the 'rigid psychological wall' imposed by religious and political leaders, the 'giant machine of oppression' that dominates society, and the dysfunctional 'culture of arrogance, pride, and shame.' Fleeing to the United States, she found happiness - but also a growing infrastructure of radical Islam that she has bravely and effectively confronted."
-Daniel Pipes, author of Militant Islam Reaches America

"We should all be thankful to Nonie Darwish for writing this insightful book on jihad and the global war on terror. As Darwish states in this great exposŽ, nothing will change in the Islamic world until the voices in the mosques preach love and peace."
-Paul Vallely, major general, U.S. Army (Ret.), coauthor of Endgame

"This call for peace should be read by everyone and taught in schools.... The free world owes Darwish an invaluable debt for her struggles for freedom."
-Bat Ye'Or, author of Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis
