Institute for the Secularisation of Islamic Society (ISIS)
Selv om sitet også anbefales på en del højrefløjssites, så er det faktisk et besøg værd. Sitet er kritisk over for islam både som religion og politik, og skrives og redigeres af ex-muslimske dissidenter (bl.a. Ibn Warraq og Anwar Shaikh). Though this site is appriciated by right wingers, it is worth a visit. The site is critical towards religious and political islam, and among writers and editors are ex-muslim dissidents (as Ibn Warrag and Anwar Shaikh)
