“It is difficult to accept the idea that Islam is a religion of peace,” Joe David said, “when Muslims have consistently used cruel and barbaric methods to eliminate infidels for nearly two thousand years.” As one reader so succinctly wrote, after reading the article, “So where are all the supporters of Islam? Hard to argue with the truth, isn't it?”
In the book The Armenian Genocide, edited by Richard Hovannisian, Armenian scholar, Dr. Anahit Khosroeva, reveals the details of how the Turks massacred Christians during World War I. (The subject is the theme of Joe David’s latest novel, The Infidels.) “The skulls of small children were smashed with rocks; the bodies of girls and women, who resisted rape or conversion into Moslems, were chopped into pieces live; men were mostly beheaded or thrown into the nearby river; the clergy, monks and nuns were skinned or burned live.”
In the article, “Genocide in the Middle East: The Ottoman Empire, Iraq, and Sudan” (published Carolina Academic Press), Professor Hannibal Travis sums up the Turks’ techniques for imprinting their culture on Northern Cyprus after the invasion of 1974 through “…methodical and widespread … institutionalized obliteration of everything sacred to the Greek.”
Joe David will be in Los Angeles in early August to tape a national cable TV show in which he will discuss his latest book, The Infidels. Set 100 years ago during World War I, The Infidels is a story about the past – about a genocide, not unlike what is occurring today in the Middle East and Africa. ____ Author: Joe David’s first book, The Fire Within, because of its successful dramatization of important issues in education, made the reading list at two universities and received national public attention in the 1980s. For nearly nine years, he was a frequent radio and television talk show guest in major U.S. cities, where he candidly discussed issues in education. He is the author of six books and numerous articles.
