Title: The Third Jihad
Author: Michael Youssef
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
“The Third Jihad has already begun–a holy war conducted not only with terror and violence, but also by stealth and intimidation,” Michael Youssef writes at the beginning of his book, The Third Jihad: Overcoming Radical Islam’s Plan for the West.
~ What ~
This two-hundred-and-fifty-six-page paperback targets those who want to better understand Islam’s intentions and plans to conquer and rule the world. Using mainly the New International Version of the Holy Bible, its ending includes discussion questions, author’s biography, and notes. Due to topics of torture, mutilation, murder, and death, it may not be appropriate for immature readers.
Divided into twelve chapters, the book explains how our country could feasibly become the Islamic States of America. By dissecting how our forefathers dealt with extortion of Barbary pirates, the first jihad in the seventh century when Muhammad had his vision in an Arabian cave, and the lengthy Ottoman Empire that conquered Constantinople, the chapters contain riveting information how the next jihad has already begun around the world and is being established to absorb America. The ending offers ways Islam is interjected into our society and how we Christians can survive, revive, and be not afraid.
~ Why ~
As Ecclesiastes states, there is nothing new under the sun, and writer Youssef reminds us how history repeats itself with Satan being the ultimate terrorist. Well written, the book goes into detail on how Islam means surrender, jizya is the tax of submission, and dawa is a stealth form of jihad. I appreciated learning about the three types of Muslims (moderate, militant and political) and how each plays a part in jihads with the forced implementation of Sharia law, especially through current day indoctrination of the next generation, the exploited welfare state, liberal immigration policies, multiculturalism, and political correctness in our country.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may have no interest in this book nor want to consider thinking about how Islam is on a quest to have the world surrender to its global caliphate. Many Muslims will not approve of the book and consider the writer and readers as Islamophobic. Some Christians will not feel the call of action to stand up for Christ when they are persecuted for promoting the Gospel.
~ Wish ~
I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reverence.
~ Want ~
If you do not know the background or history of Islam and how a planned jihad manipulates society and religious beliefs throughout the centuries, this is an excellent, well-documented source that will make you question the daily news when it comes to America’s freedom in regard to the growing Islamic civilization.
