by George Braswell Jr.
Dan Panetti's assessment: Braswell
does a great job of touching on most of the important issues that most people would want to know - the difference between the Sunnis and the Shiites, the basic teachings of the Qur'an, the meaning of the controversial term jihad, and the historical and contemporary perspectives of Islam
