    Why Muslims Come to the WestIslam is incompatible with Western culture, history, judicial system, and civilization. Remember, our judicial system based on Judeo-Christian values. Islam objects these values and Koran calls for extermination of Christians and Jews. Muslims objective is creation of global Caliphate and establishing Shariah Law. All this eventually leads to civil war, unless we will take care and deport all muslims from US and Europe. Look what is going in Britain, France and other countries where muslims clear declared their primary objective to overcome current social systems and replace it with Sharia law. Read below confessions of leading muslims around the world, including American and watch the Fitna on: Ahmad Co-founder of the Council of American-Islamic Relations:"Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam ... Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan makes clear Islam’s aggressive role in subordinating other worldly religions to it claiming,“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the believers our army.”Algerian leader Houari Boumédienne said at the United Nations in 1974:“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”Dr. Ja`far Sheikh Idris in article “Separation Of Church And State” said:“Secularism cannot be a solution for countries with a Muslim majority or even a sizeable minority, for it requires people to replace their God-given beliefs with an entirely different set of man-made beliefs. Separation of religion and state is not an option for Muslims because is requires us to abandon Allah's decree for that of a man.”Al-Jazeera’s Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi, who is widely hailed as a moderate reformer in the West, said:“Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and victor,” and “the conquest this time will not be by the sword but by preaching and ideology.”A Saudi Sheikh, Muhammad bin Abd Al-Rahman Al-‘Arifi, imam of the mosque of King Fahd Defense Academy, said:Muslims “will control the land of the Vatican; we will control Rome and introduce Islam in it”Also read article “Arab-American author outlines secret 20-year strategy to undermine country” by FROM JOSEPH FARAH'S G2 BULLETIN.Plus, remember, all muslim organizations have close ties to global terrorist organizations, like Hamas, Hezbullah, Brotherhood.Only total muslims deportation will save western countries and civilization from collapse.

    Dr. James Zogby is a highly qualified American voice to write this book: Arab Voices-What They Are Saying to Us, And Why It Matters. He has spent a great portion of his life supporting immigrants to America from Arab and Muslims countries in their transition into the American mainstream. The birth of the Arab American Institute came out of his own family's exposure to stereotyping of Middle Eastern looking people as terrorists following the Munich Olympic tragedy. AAI has supported Arab Americans to take their place in American politics.His own American experience mirrors this passage from being viewed as a stereotype to carving out a place in mainstream America. Dr. Zogby's life experience, educational background, and personality have produced a man of deep commitment to the needs of not only American-Arabs but to All Americans. With this book he has taken his positive commitment to understanding amongst human beings as the path to greater harmony beyond his native country to The Arab World. Through this book he opens many doors to us to allow us to hear not only what Arabs think about us but why they think the way they do.Although much of the Arab World is not labeled as democratic it has pragmatic thinkers who understand the wisdom of diplomacy and negotiating with their cousins. It is widely known that Saudi Arabia was a staunch ally against Saddam Hussein in the first Gulf War but is it so widely known that war averting talks were held by Saudi Arabia with concerned parties up to the initiation of conflict? His writings are not only based on personal beliefs and interactions with Arabs of The Middle East and North Africa but based on recent polls made to obtain a valid and unbiased look at Arab public opinion in The Middle East and North Africa on topics important to Americans and Arabs as well.This book and more like it are needed because positive or explanatory aspects of The Arab Voice is too often either absent, polarized, or muffled in our media and academic circles. This is in part too often the result of stereotypical views of Arabs held within our culture. Americans look for answers in a variety of sources and work to overcome their lack of knowledge. Some books do provide insight into The Arab Voice but our resources often become polarized views: a "choose one" type of mentality that makes us all the victim. At last with Zogby's book it is a more mainstream to authoritative Arab Voice you hear not just an author's opinion. There are not enough books like Dr. Zogby's, therefore, it is a must read if you ever want to understand the complexities of the Middle East.

    James Zogby speaks with a uniquely qualified voice about the Arab experience in both the Middle East and the USA. Son of a Lebanese immigrant of very modest fortune, he and his brother John (Zogby International polls) exemplify the American Dream of achieving success through competence and hard work. Straight-talking but never strident, he discusses prejudice against Arabs and the desperate need for basic understanding--too often deliberately discouraged by hostile domestic influences--about Arab peoples, their history, language, culture, aspirations.Zogby's analysis of cases where willful ignorance and bias have botched U.S. actions and interests--Iraq, Lebanon, Israel/Palestine--provides a concise education in what went wrong and why, supported by numerous references to actual, eye-opening polls of opinion in Arab countries. This book should be on the desk--and in the hands--of everyone involved with Middle East policy. It is also an immensely valuable source of information and insight for schools, libraries, and anyone who cares about the health of American civil society.

    Dr. Zogby provides a perspective that is all too rare in American commentary--a perspective from the Arab World. With decades of experience in the region and reams of polling data, Dr. Zogby provides a fresh account of what contemporary men and women of the Arab World think about their lives, their government, and, of course, the United States. I would strongly recommend the book to any curious reader, but, most of all, I really wish our current and future policy makers would give its content and its message serious consideration. It is clearly written and is a quick, enjoyable read. It also has a helpful recommended reading list, if you want to further explore the topic.
