Reviews

"Scapegoats is an important book that shows Islamophobia must be addressed urgently. Violence or hate speech against any community based on their faith is un-American and is against our founding principles." Because when a murderous psychopath goes on a killing spree, law enforcement officials and the media never make his religion the central issue--unless he happens to be a Muslim.--PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER

"My brother Arsalan Iftikhar is one of America's great champions of reason
and respect. His book is a stirring addition to the literature of American
pluralism. May it help to hold back the ugliness--the intolerance and the indecency--that is disfiguring our country."--LEON WIESELTIER

"Iftikhar writes with a deep love of his country, and profound anguish about
the betrayal of her cherished values of fairness and inclusiveness. This book is a wake-up call for America."--BOBBY GHOSH, GLOBAL NEWS ANALYST, CNN

"[Arsalan Iftikhar has] become a go-to voice in American media, playing a variety of roles--explaining Islam, decrying Islamic extremism and also what he sees as rising islamophobia. It is that last which concerns him in a new book, and the title sums up its mission. It's called Scapegoats: How Islamophobia Helps Our Enemies and Threatens Our Freedoms."
--MICHAEL MARTIN, ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO
