It is amazing to see that how Arabs mixed the verses in Quran after the death of Propet Muhammed. Although they call Christians and Jews as the destroyer of the original Gospels and books. We have a Turkish saying "Clever thief overcomes the house owner when he is caught!"
As for this book, this is magnificent work and a MUST READ for evey Turkish Muslim, to open their eyes and hearts on the topics that is not told, this will help all of us how we have been lied! I am truly impressed about this courages work.
When I see the average rating for this book which is 3 stars, I suprised because it should be higher than that. Then when I checked the reviews I see the reaon. There are two groups of reviews first one with 5 stars and second with 1 and so the average becomes 3 stars.
Please read and check the readers reviews, this second group with one star is the one that blinded our beliefs and hearts, they are the ones in my country who take us away fom the absolute truth.
Since if we do not know anything, will not suspect anything or think but keep following and respecting them. We will become easier to control and lead! This is what they want!
I am just suprised to see that how they reach so far to this site and TRY to conveince the new buyers NOT TO BUY and READ this wonderful material! Unbelievable!
Please, specially, if you are a Muslim go on an read this book to see the untold truths and do not LET OTHERS THINK FOR YOURSELVES but think with your own heart!
