“Sales of books on Islam rocket after France attacks” reports AFP:
Paris (AFP) – Books on Islam are selling out in France after deadly extreme”ist attacks in the capital raised uncomfortable questions about Europe’s fastest-growing religion.
A special magazine supplement focused on the Koran has flown off the shelves, and shops are selling more books on Islam than ever after the Paris attacks in January that left 17 dead.
“The French are asking more and more questions, and they feel less satisfied than ever by the answers they’re getting from the media,” said Fabrice Gerschel, director of Philosophie magazine, which published the supplement.
And it’s not ‘books on Islam’ in general that are spiking. Rather, it is candid books with a critical eye towards Islam that are spiking.
