Book Description

This 16000-words essay provides a complete and definite answer to the challenges raised by the use of the duplicitous concept 'islamophobia'.

The first part, A Battle Cry, deals with the concept of islamophobia, its epistemology, its history, its offensive character and the people and institutions that use it: from activists posing as scientists in the West to the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Because of the amazing lack of media- and scientific attention for this organization, this part elaborates on the perfidious character of the OIC and the change it went through since a watershed occurrence in Turkey of 1996: the reburial of Enver Pasha. A momentous event, the consequences of which were ruled very unlikely by Samuel Huntington in his Clash of civilizations, the reason why this part includes a paragraph Samuel Huntington totally flunked. There is a staggering difference between the ‘definitions’ of the concept used by Runnymede, the British organzation that made the use of the term commonplace and the EU on the one hand, and the OIC on the other hand. The essay zooms in on this difference.

Part two, Protecting the innocent, starts with the statement that exposing and rejecting the notion of 'islamophobia' neither increases nor decreases the need to protect the people who call themselves Muslims. To guarantee their safety nothing has to be added to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or to western constitutions or laws. However, we must realise that facing a potential head-on collision of civilizations, we can not simply rely on the law: in the final analysis the political and ideological fight is of greater importance. The biggest, although not most acute danger for Mohammedans in countries not dominated by their ideology, is being accused of constituting a fifth column and treated accordingly. That is why surveys are included on what happened to the Japanese Americans in WW II and two other groups, the Volga Germans and the Bihari Mohammedans, that were brutally confronted with this accusation. A reference is included to the exemplary behaviour of the 100th battalion: while composed entirely of Japanese Americans this 'purple heart battalion' carried the slogan 'Remember Pearl Harbour'.

Part three is called Answering the threat. 'Defusing of mohammedanism' is what is called for by the author and an alternative formulation of Clausewitz's famous assertion about politics and war is introduced: "Those who refuse to fight the ideological and political struggle to cope with a hostile ideology, increase the risk of (civil) war". In this part it is further emphasized that a clash of civilizations can not be dealt with along judicial lines and most certainly not by rulings on intentions or 'hate-speech'. It contains considerations on the trial in 2011 of the most famous member of parliament in the Netherlands: Geert Wilders.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book may give heart to the brave November 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short book or long academic paper (depending on your point of view) has been well written and presented in layman's English so it is easily digested. It presents sound arguments and gives the reader an immediate appreciation of the topic and the problems being inflicted on a politically correct West. It gives understanding to anyone concerned enough about Islamism, and background to the kind of hostile irrational response anyone game enough to speak up can expect.
Australians once were credited with saying what other people thought. Today things are sadly different. We remain mute on this problematic subject. This book may give heart to the brave.

More About the Author


Frans Groenendijk has not seriously been threatened, although he openly states that during his life time he wants to see Mohammedanism defused worldwide.

He was born in 1953, the year that part of his country was temporarily reclaimed by the sea. His birthplace Schiedam suffered little damage, however.
He comes from a Catholic working class family and studied social sciences and then some.
Worked in ICT, later in education, as a math teacher mostly. Was involved in leftist political parties in the seventies, eighties and part of the nineties. He feels no shame or remorse about this, just some regret.

After the murder of Theo van Gogh by a devout young Mohammedan, he explored theory, practice and history of Mohammedanism. This led to his first book: "Islamophobia? A levelheaded answer".
The launching of it was accompanied by a stir. The manager of the conference center where this would take place, claimed that he could not guarantee the safety of those present and cancelled it. Two weeks later the manager of the international press center showed a little more spine. However the local police, alarmed by the left-wing cry baby managing the other venue, advised him to take special security steps, but did not provide any protection 'because the meeting was not in the public space'...
The first copy of the book was handed to a young ex-Muslim woman of Moroccan descent.

According to his facebook page Groenendijk admires South Park as well as Winston Churchill.
