Nonie Darwish lived for thirty years in a majority Muslim kingdom. every little thing approximately her existence? kin, sexuality, hygiene, enterprise, banking, contracts, economics, politics, social concerns, every little thing? was once dictated via the Islamic legislations code often called Sharia.
But Sharia isn't staying in majority Muslim countries. Darwish now lives within the West and brings a caution; the objective of radical Islam is to carry Sharia legislations in your nation. If that occurs, the cloth of Western legislations and liberty might be ripped in . lower than Sharia legislation:
â€¢ a girl will be overwhelmed for chatting with males who're no longer her kinfolk and flogged for no longer donning a headdress

Death.
Weaving own adventure including large documentation and study, Darwish exposes the evidence and divulges the worldwide hazard posed by way of Sharia legislation. someone fascinated about Western rights and liberties ignores her caution and research at their peril.
