Hashtag Islam

'Hashtag Islam' is officially out this week, in hardback, paperback and e-book formats (in some markets, different dates apply to some of these elements). The book is the culmination of several years research. I welcome feedback from readers via this website or through social media.

Book details

French police raid Centre Zahra France

Daily Star (Lebanon), French police raid Shiite center in counterterror swoop, 3 Oct 2018

"One Zahra France official cited in the order to freeze funds, Yahia Gouasmi, 68, told CNews TV channel that the weapons were solely “for the security of the center” and mainly belonged to Zahra France’s security detail.

"“Everything is false,” said Jamel Tahiri, 43, also among the four whose funds were being frozen.

"“We’re transparent. Everything is on internet.”"
