I do an editing gig on Fiverr and I get a lot of religious material. Recently, I got this 100,000 word book to edit which is the biggest order I’ve had in a long time. Good money. Still…
It is labeled and was described to me when the order was placed as “A history of Islam”. Cool. I’m a history nerd and I my knowledge of the subject is limited.
Now, I’m 100 pages into it and the last 20 pages have been a laundry list of all the crimes America and the west have committed against Islamic nations. I just finished reading a rather worrisome part where the guy listed someone who made homemade bombs and blew up some French people in Libya as a national hero. This no longer feels like a history. It feels like fundamentalist Islamic propaganda. It has a very hateful, angry vibe to it, full of rants that were not there the first 50 pages and demands for apologies from western nations.
I’m going to cancel the order but now I worry that I should report this to someone. This is very concerning. Someone let me know what I should do.
