Hi, my name is Steven Danios (a.k.a. Danios of LoonWatch). I recently launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for the completion, publication, and promotion of my upcoming book, The J Word: Jihad, Between Hype and Reality.
Actual book design may vary.
The book focuses on refuting the fundamental premise of Islamophobia–that Islam is somehow the most violent religion on earth. Sadly, more white Americans than not believe this to be true, which is why it’s extremely important that a book of this type is written.
Robert Spencer is the director of JihadWatch.org, arguably the most well-known anti-Muslim hate site on the internet. Spencer authored a book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades). The ideas contained in this book are important to refute not just because they constitute Spencer’s attack on Islam, but because these ideas are universally shared by Islamophobes in general. Spencer’s book can be considered a collection of anti-Muslim myths that the Islamophobes rely on. Refuting Spencer’s book is therefore refuting all of Islamophobia.
The groundwork for this book is already done: I’ve written several articles on this topic, including the Understanding Jihad Series, which will give the reader an idea of what my book is all about:
Articles by Danios on Islam and Terrorism
All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 94% that Aren’t: According to the official FBI database from 1980 to 2005, Muslim extremists were responsible for only six percent of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.
Europol Report: All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 99.6% that Aren’t: According to Europol’s annual study of terrorism, Muslim extremists were responsible for less than 1% of terrorist attacks in Europe.
Updated Europol Data: Less Than 1% of Terrorist Attacks by Muslims

Articles by Danios on “Dhimmitude”
The Church’s Doctrine of “Perpetual Servitude” was Worse than “Dhimmitude”: This article is a direct refutation of chapter four of Robert Spencer’s book, entitled “Islam: Religion of Intolerance.” Here, I forever lay to rest the Islamophobic argument of “dhimmitude.”

Proof that Robert Spencer’s JihadWatch.org Relies on Bogus Translations: Robert Spencer uses bogus translation of Arabic to “prove” that a fatwa claims that it is permissible in Islam to have sex with a prepubescent girl.
Articles by Danios on Sharia
Muslim Americans Must Obey U.S. Laws: Nidal Hasan Disobeyed Islamic Doctrine: This article was written shortly after the Fort Hood Shooting. In it, I prove that Islamophobes are wrong to claim that the shooter was simply “obeying Islamic doctrine” when he shot and killed his fellow soldiers.
Christians Must Obey God’s Law Over the Constitution: Many right-wing Christians claim that American Muslims are trying to overthrow the Constitution with Sharia, yet oftentimes it is these same Christians who place their religious laws over the law of the land.
