About the book:
‘Mos-lem … Distinguished by a lust for blood in the name of jihad … They pursue world domination through prolific procreation and they are coming—en masse … To castigate the entire Muslim civilization … and to insinuate that we are a type of archaic memento which will one day … break free of the shackles of the Islamic Middle Ages … is just downright childish’
‘I am Muslim, but even I get nervous when in the (rare) company of a burqa-chick … I often don’t know how to act … because no one teaches you what etiquette to follow when someone pitches a tent around her body’
Azad Essa is a young South African going places. A journalist with a wicked sense of humour, his take on world politics is engaging and insightful. The Moslems Are Coming tracks a changing world, tackles race and religion head-on, gives fresh insight into the Israel–Palestine conflict, casts new light on old stereotypes, vents the frustrations and fears of the next generation – and ultimately offers us hope for the future.
