In his book "Silent No More," Paul

Findley recounts how

Muslims first came to America. He speaks about how many famous American sportsmen have

turned to Islām. He observes

that although Muslims came to America before Columbus they are still living as

strangers among Christians in

America. This is due to the fact that the Western media represents Muslims as

violent backward people.



The book also sheds light on the way Islām is practiced in

Afghanistan and the ruling Taliban’s

misrepresentation of Islām. He observes that the Taliban associates

itself with Islām by referring to itself as the

Islamic Afghan province, while doing many things that are

totally against Islām. This has pushed the Americans, who

know little about Islām, to think that the Afghan

ruling Taliban is an example that all Islamic governments will

follow.
