      The book is divided into alternating chapters: one throughline tells the story of Hashem al-Souki's journey from Syria to Europe while the other half of the book is more big-picture.

The Arabic word 'Islam' simply means 'submission', and derives from a word meaning 'peace'. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God. 'Mohammedanism' is thus a misnomer because it suggests that Muslims worship Muhammad rather than God. 'Allah' is the Arabic name for God, which is used by Arab Muslims and Christians.

      In the great Professor of Near Eastern Studies, Emeritus, at Princeton University, Bernard Lewis, wrote the book The Muslim Discovery of Europe, which is described as a must-read for anyone interested in Middle Eastern history and ultimately Islam's spread to Europe. The Muslim Discovery of America is the new book by Frederick William 5/5(3). I explain it in my recent book: “China’s Belt and Road Initiative: Connecting Countries Saving Millions of Lives”. China is deeply involved in this tremendous project which I often describe as the final stage of global de-colonialization. Russia is increasingly participating, too; in various cases even taking the lead.

      Eastern Europeans are intimately acquainted with Islam. An event that occurred this week in history sheds much light on the current situation. There are 56 Muslim countries throughout the world. One may assume these are mainly Arab countries, existing solely in the Middle East. In reality, there are many predominantly Muslim countries in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Asia, and Africa. See all Muslim Countries.
