Press Release Body: RAVENNA, Ohio, -- Markus Aurelius' explosive new book, \"Bleeding for Allah: Why Islam will Conquer the Free World, What Americans Need to Know\" has Muslims from Turkey to Saudi Arabia blistering with rage. The new book, which took more than four years to research and write, scrutinizes Islam from its very birth. The Koran, the holy book of more than one billion people worldwide, is systematically analyzed by the author to reveal the true nature of its message. \"Bleeding for Allah\" goes the full distance in detailing the uncomfortable and painful truth of that message. Turkish news agencies have attacked the author as being a "Christian extremist" and of "promoting culture wars" (Ankara News 7/03/08). Dozens of websites in Turkey, Syria and Saudi Arabia have condemned the work as nothing more than propaganda of the Bush administration and insist on banning the sale of the book. The Turks appear particularly sensitive to Aurelius' gruesome account of the Turkish propagated Armenian Genocide. The Turkish news outlets reiterate that Islam is only a religion of peace. However, Markus Aurelius, who is not employed by any government agency, methodically articulates that Islam is anything but a peaceful religion by providing more than one hundred specific examples of Koranic verse that readily demonstrates its militancy and violence. While Aurelius is quite sensitive to the influence of cultural bias on interpretation, he finds it extremely difficult to dismiss the troubling tenor of so many of the Koran's verses, such as:
Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends.-- Koran, 5:51
Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and deal sternly with them. -- Koran, 66:9
When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. --Koran 9:5
In an effort to further reduce cultural bias but still illustrate the militancy of Islam, \"Bleeding for Allah\" includes a unique comparative analysis of specific words between the New Testament and the Koran. For example, the words \"punishment\" and \"torture\" appear 600 percent more in the Koran while the word \"love\" appears 500 percent less. Additionally, Aurelius carefully examines the Prophet Muhammad\'s life, including the gruesome details of his ruthless rise to power in the early seventh century. \"The shrewd Prophet creatively found divine support from Allah for his banditry and mass murder,\" Aurelius writes. \"Sadly, more than one billion people believe those words today.\" Americans are woefully in the dark regarding the Koran, but few have taken the time to read it. Aurelius challenges the American public to examine the Koran and draw their own conclusions. Markus Aurelius has been a lifelong student of history, science and religion as well as an avid collector of antiquities and antiquarian books. The author utilizes several of his centuries old texts in this work.
