            Global Media Commentator Arsalan Iftikhar takes on Islamophobia through the lens of the brutal Christchurch slaughter. In March 2019, a heavily-armed white supremacist walked into two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and slaughtered fifty-one innocent Muslim worshippers while... broadcasting on Facebook Live for the world to see. After the Christchurch mosque massacre, authorities found the white supremacist's seventy-four-page racist manifesto called The Great Replacement, which railed against Muslims and the idea that brown Muslim folks were ultimately going to replace white people in his irrational Fear of Muslim Planet. Fear of a Muslim Planet begins with the treacherous legacy of the white supremacist Great Replacement theory in the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre. One of the heroes for the Christchurch shooter was the infamous Norwegian anti-Muslim terrorist named Anders Breivik, who brutally murdered seventy-seven people in 2011 in Norway's worst terrorist attack ever and whose own 1,500-page fascist manifesto promoted thr Great Replacement worldview that Muslim immigrants posed a danger to Western societies. As the book further illustrates, minority victims of the Great Replacement conspiracy theory are not limited to Muslims alone. In October 2018, the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh was devastated when a white supremacist brutally executed eleven innocent Jewish congregants in a horrific act of anti-Semitic terrorism (it was the single deadliest attack exclusively targeting Jews ever to happen in the United States). The shooter later told police that he was inspired to commit these murders because Donald Trump was not doing enough to stop immigration. Open your Eyes! the shooter posted on social media in a disjointed anti-Semitic and Islamophobic manifesto. It's the filthy EVIL jews Bringing the Filthy EVIL Muslims into the Country!! The presidency of Donald Trump has only exacerbated the growth of Islamophobia in America today. Fear of a Musl

Modern issues such as fundamentalism are discussed in context alongside the work of peaceful traditionalists, modernizers, and women's rights campaigners, among others. Packed with more than 80 inspiring quotations, and bold, intriguing illustrations, The Islam Book is an invaluable source of information both for members of one of the world's major religions and any interested reader who wants a clear unbiased guide to the meaning of this faith.

            Are You This? Or Are You This?: A Story of Identity and Worth (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            When Madian Al Jazerah came out to his Arab parents, his mother had one question. 'Are you this?' she asked, cupping her hand. 'Or are you this?' she motioned with a poking finger. If you're the poker, she said, you aren't a homosexual. For Madian, this opposition tells us less a...bout who he is than it does about patriarchy and power, and society's efforts to fit our identity into neat boxes. This kind of question has followed Madian all his life. He is Palestinian, but wasn't raised in Palestine. He was born in Kuwait, but he's not Kuwaiti. He's British-educated, but not a Westerner. He's a Muslim, but he can't embrace the Islam of today. He's a gay man, out of the closet but still living in the shade. As an adult Madian settled in Jordan, but he has left the country three times in fear of his life. He has moved around the world searching for acceptance and belonging, joining new communities in San Francisco and New York, yet always finding himself pulled back to Amman. This frank and moving memoir narrates his battles with adversity, racism and homophobia, and a rich life lived with humour, dignity and grace.
