Since the 9/11 attacks the world has been led to believe that Muslims, encouraged by their religion, Islam, play a major part in terrorist acts around the world. It is alleged by numerous Western scholars that Islam creates a premise that allows Muslims to terrorise non-believers. This book provides knowledge and understanding by examining terrorism in Islam and the Quran. It examines how certain Muslims advocate and express their own fanatical version of Islam and believe that to kill oneself and other innocent individuals through suicide is justified in Islam. Neither of these positions are actually supported by Islam or the Quran, but are upheld by certain misled Muslims whose positions and practices have led to the downfall of the integrity and credibility of Muslims as followers of Islam amongst the international community.

The book also examines how Western media and governments mislead the world as to the true roots of terrorism and how numerous Western governments created an atmosphere of terrorism and fear by contributing to the increasing terrorism problem throughout the world through economic, political or social support to further their foreign policies.

This book provides an insight into how the stability in many Muslim countries, backed by Western governments, in reality 'hangs by a thread'. This is purely for the reason that many Muslim leaders obtain instructions from major powers in shaping their countries policies and do not listen to their own people or focus on their needs.
