Review

""[An] excellent analysis of the threat the Islamic ideology poses to the West....not only identifies and analyzes the problem civilized democracies face with Islam, but he also aims to give possible ways to deal with it as well. This book is a must-read for everyone and an eye-opener for those who are not yet aware of the threat Islam poses to our Western civilization...." --Geert Wilders, a member of the Dutch Parliament and the political leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV).<br /><br />"Defeating Political Islam attacks and destroys the ideas of "war on terror" and a benign Islam that has been high jacked by extremists. He shows that our prime error is ignoring the fact that political Islam exists, that it has a detailed ideology and a history of conquest. If we do not engage in an ideological battle with political Islam, we are doomed to lose a war we refuse to recognize....If I were President, I would direct that every officer and diplomat that dealt with the Middle East and Asia read, study and comprehend Defeating Political Islam." --Bill Warner, Director--Center for the Study of Political Islam<br /><br />"Here is a thorough and provocative discussion of the threat of the global jihad and Islamic supremacism in all its dimensions. Moorthy Muthuswamy deserves our gratitude for presenting a solidly argued exposition of what must be done in order to fight, and win, this conflict on ideological and political grounds, defending human rights and religious freedom from the threat posed to them by the jihadists. We can only hope that our political leaders and those of all the nations that are threatened by the jihad will heed his wise counsel before it is too late." --Robert Spencer, author of the New York Times Bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad.

I purchased this book primarily to learn the views on political Islam and Jihad from a "non-white" European/North American. As the author points out, India has been victimized by Islam perhaps more than any other country on the planet with the exception of Arabia itself. However, unfortunately, all too often during the past several decades or so, Indians have, in the name of political correctness and "non-aligned" movement solidarity stemming from the Nehru/Nasser aliance, white washed the centuries of ethnic cleansing perpetrated on them by Islam, as well as the more recent predations. So, it was quite refreshing to learn that at least some Indians are beginning to re-examine their past so as to better understand the threat to their future. Whether one agrees with the author or not, one should read this book for the sections on India if nothing else.
His primary thesis is that militant Jihad can never be defeated unless the philosophical underpinnings of political Islam are discredited and eliminated. Unfortunately, he points out, that political Islam itself (and ultimately Jihad) can never be eliminated unless the theological underpinnings of Islam itself are discredited and proven to be false. Contrary to what certain intellectually challenged critics claim, he is not advocating the mass extermination of Muslims or any sort of persecution. In fact, he makes the point several times that military responses to Jihad are not the solution, though they may be needed from time to time to gain short term breathing room.

Author Moorthy Muthuswamy has applied scientific methods of statistical analysis combined with insightful policy analysis to the solution of one of the contemporary world's most urgent problems, namely the danger of an aggressive and expansionist political Islam.

Muthuswamy uses a ground breaking statistical analysis to demonstrate that Islam resembles more of an ideology of conquest than a religion. By examining the contexts in which the Islamist trilogy of scritures, Koran, Hadith and Sira speak of unbelievers, it was found that an overwhelming number of passages enjoin conquest, subjugation , dispossession, marginalization, enslavement , exploitation or outright massacre of non-Muslims.By examining patterns in Islamic history, the author has been able to demonstrate a pattern of conquest by design enshrined in its scriptural trilogy, replete with strategies to extend Islamic dominion worldwide. Even in the present when the traditional Islamic powers such as Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey have declined vis-a-vis the West and other civilizations, the jihadic pattern has been seen to persist in the strategies employed by political Islam to achieve conquest of non-believer lands.The nations of South and South East Asia are prime examples where these strategies are still being successfully employed.Moreover, the pattern of utilizing a potent mixture of terrorism and demographic conquest can be seen as imperilling even such countries as France, Britain and Denmark in the heart of democratic Europe.

I have read numerous books on the subject of Islam, trying to understand the history and why it appears to be so radical. FINALLY, an honest, open, in your face analysis of the history, what motivates & drives the Islam we see around the world today.

In this book, why the "West" doesn't understand Islam is clearly explained for all to see. The book is full of current events and examples of how it went wrong and what needs to be done. Clearly it takes a well educated author who is outside the dogmatic "think tanks", to give a clear and concise analysis of Islam.

Honestly, this is a MUST READ book by the person on the street and the government leaders of the word!! It will open your eyes in ways the entrenched religious and government institutions don't want you to know.

An outstanding review of the realities of Islam, with each chapter well-documented before the following chapter. Coupled with the eleven (11) -volume "Islamic Trilogy," by the Center for the Study of Political Islam [...], ignorance of Islamic doctrine and continuing bloody history is now a choice - a very dangerous choice!

Excellent work by Moorthy Muthuswamy.

The centrality and obsession of a strong ideology can create a civilizational whirlpool that grows at the expense of everything and everyone else. In the case of Islam, it does not produce wealth or creativity or freedom, but simply more Islam.

This hardcore belief is not compatible with disagreement and thus naturally has 'bloody edges'.

In the end, enemies (non-believers) and even followers (believers) become victims of the ideology.

I do not see any solution from warfare (whether nuclear or not) or from dialogue. The solution can only come from an internal awakening and revolution.

I think it is safe to say that this Cold War will last much longer than the one against Communism and will be much more painful - both for Muslims themselves and for the rest of the world.

Anyone concerned about living in a peaceful, multi-religious world should read this book.
