The Jew is Not My Enemy: Unveiling the Myths that Fuel Muslim Anti-Semitism (Review)
reviews / August 18, 2011

I really loved the over-arching message in this book. Going against the widespread notion that Muslims should hate Jews is something that more people should be doing. I particularly enjoyed that Fatah used evidence from the Quran and the Hadith to back up his point is key, since lots of Muslims the world over (particularly the fundies) use these texts to justify their hatred.

Borderline (Review)
reviews / August 13, 2011

I originally wanted to read this book because it seemed to be one of the few YA novels that has a Muslim protagonist, and one of the even fewer YA novels that has a male Muslim protagonist. (I mean, I’m sure there are more, but this is one of the first that I’ve heard of.)

Then I started reading about how many awards this book has won over the past year. And you know what? They are entirely deserved.
