Description
Summary:"The name of Tariq Ramadan is well known in the West. In this study of the man, the French writer and journalist Caroline Fourest dissects the public pronouncements of Tariq Ramadan. Drawing on his numerous books, articles and tapes as sources, she demonstrates with chilling clarity that the West has been beguiled by Ramadan's smooth talk, by his doublespeak." "Tariq Ramadan is slippery. He says one thing to his faithful Islamist followers and something else entirely to his Western audience. His choice of words, the formulations he uses - even his tone of voice - vary, chameleon-like, according to his audience." "Caroline Fourest does us an incalculable service. In this English translation of Brother Tariq she proves, once and for all, that Tariq Ramadan is not to be trusted." "Tariq Ramadan has been portrayed as the Martin Luther King of Islam. This study reveals that he is a far more sinister character at the forefront of a militant and reactionary Islam."--BOOK JACKET
