Hamed Abdel-Samed, Der Untergang der islamischen Welt: Eine Prognose [The fall of the Islamic world: a prognosis]
In 2011, a revolution rolled through the Arab world - from the Maghreb to the Nile, from Yemen to Syria. Political and sociological analysts of the Arab world were surprised by the drive for civil rights and democracy (rather than for the introduction of Islamic law) - and some said that even Western secret services were not prepared. The book under review was not intended as a scientific treatise. Much more, it is a personal confrontation with Islam by someone ‘from the region’ who has studied Islamic studies and participated at the international level on the dialogue of religions.
