560 pages7 hours


Keyboard Jihad is an attempt to rectify some of the misperceptions and misrepresentations of Islam and Muslims that resulted from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This book is a collection of original essays that were written over the years by Abdul Karim Bangura. These essays were not compiled to defend Islam–a deen, meaning in Arabic a complete way of life. Rather, Keyboard Jihad seeks to dispel common misperceptions and misrepresentations of Islam that can lead to prejudice and racism.

The essays in Keyboard Jihad cover a variety of Islamic topics:

Misused and/or Misrepresented Islamic Concepts that Can Impede Peacebuilding and Interfaith Dialogue Islam and Just War Theory Islamic Precepts on Gender Relations Islam on the Internet HIV/AIDS in Africa: Majority Muslim versus Non-Muslim Societies Challenges and Opportunities of Integrating New Muslim Immigrants into American Society Competing Approaches for Shaping the Iraqi Society The Debate on Arab Racism against Africans
