Judyth Piazza chats with Stephen Blanton, Author of 'The Heart of Islam'

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Stephen Blanton was born in the farmlands of western Carolina. At the tender age of thirteen he overheard members of his local church happily describing the fun they had enjoyed the previous evening--all of which was against their professed beliefs. Devastated, he decided at that moment to reject his church. He set out on what turned out to be a fifty-year search for God. He secured work overseas so he could study the great religions firsthand.

Stephen`s career work in satellite communications took him to twenty countries, where he delved into the beliefs and practices of Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Mormons and Muslims. He lived, worked and traveled with Muslims. He rose to the level of Senior Director in major corporations, specializing in earth station installation, operations and maintenance. During his search for God, Muslims murdered 3,000 of his compatriots. He knew then that he could not rest until he learned why any religious group could possibly kill so many unsuspecting and innocent strangers.

Stephen attributes his ability to write The Heart of Islam to his education and corporate training "but mostly to his life-long determination to learn all he can about the great religions. He currently lives in eastern Carolina with his wife Elizabeth. They have four children and eleven grandchildren.

The Heart of Islam

Islamic jihadists proudly proclaim they commit mass murder for the "Cause of Allah"-and Islamic armies are currently waging wars in twelve countries. Why? And why do most people still believe Islam is a religion of peace? The Heart of Islam answers these questions with hard-hitting and easily verifiable facts. While it is true that most Muslims prefer to live in peace, their devout Islamic brothers may show up at any time to remind them that it is their sacred duty to fight until every person in every country is Muslim; that the penalty for refusing to fight is death; and that the penalty for abandoning Islam is death. Islam is not comparable to any religion. With its goal of world conquest Islam can only be compared to fascism and communism. The Heart of Islam quotes Allah`s commands for Muslims to fight until they dominate the world; reveals their strategies for war; and lists their attacks and conquests from the founding of Islam to the present. The Heart of Islam is a must-read for anyone who truly wants to understand Islamic violence-and is a must-read for Muslims who would rather live in peace than fight in continuous wars. The hope for mankind is to reach Muslims of goodwill before their fundamentalist brothers force them to fight. Enlightening, compelling and frightening-this book exhorts readers to resist the spread of Islam`s ideology and encourages readers to help peace-loving Muslims escape Islam`s murderous trap.
