Book Description

This study is the result of months of analysis, discussion and drafting by a group of top security policy experts concerned with the preeminent totalitarian threat of our time: the legal-political-military doctrine known within Islam as "shariah." It is designed to provide a comprehensive and articulate "second opinion" on the official characterizations and assessments of this threat as put forth by the United States government. The authors, under the sponsorship of the Center for Security Policy, have modeled this work on an earlier "exercise in competitive analysis" which came to be known as the "Team B" Report. The present Team B II report is based entirely on unclassified, readily available sources. As with the original Team B analysis, however, this study challenges the assumptions underpinning the official line in the conflict with today's totalitarian threat, which is currently euphemistically described as "violent extremism," and the policies of co-existence, accommodation and submission that are rooted in those assumptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory Reading to understand Jihad in America October 15, 2010
This is the seminal work that our nation needs. There is finally a single all-encompassing reference that details the modern Jihad threat to the Dar Al Harb (the "house of war"). It outlines the master plan being carried out by the Muslim Brotherhood to impose Shariah Law on the United States, and those people in our own government that are not only ignoring the threat, but in some cases are actually supporting the destruction of the U.S. Consitution by abdicating their professional duty to develop an appropriate national security response.

It clarifies how Islam is NOT just a religion, but an entire way of life that includes its own codified law called Shariah, which is meant to rule over the entire world and be enforced against ALL people, not just Muslims. It identifies how Shariah Law contradicts many of the protections in the Bill of Rights, and especially women's rights (specifically, such behavior as underage and forced marriages, honor killing, female genital mutilation, polygamy, and domestic abuse including marital rape--where's the National Organization for Women (NOW) when you need them?). It clarifies how senior government officials, as well as generals and admirals in the military, are failing their oath to protect and defend the Constitution. It highlights why anyone supporting Shariah in the United States is commiting sedition and treason. It identifies how the Muslim Brotherhood are secretly waging a "stealth Jihad" through scores of front organizations.

The West is led to believe that Jihad is nothing more than an "inner struggle" while there are in fact four types of Jihad: of the heart, the tongue, the pen, and the sword.

5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing read November 13, 2010
For some time now, the topics "Islam" and "Shariah", and similar terms have come up quite a lot not just in the media, but in electoral campaigns as well. Some preach that islam is quote: "A religion of peace", whilst others disagree with this notion.

And since these topics have crept up everywhere, both supporters and opponents of Shariah in particular, or Islam in general, have often accused the other side of lying, of manipulation and distoring the truth.

I myself have read a few books on the issue, and in both cases was dissapointed in finding general rants against the other side for not seeing the errors in their view.

However, I am very pleased to find this book refreshingly well written. It never gets boring, but is not written in obvious attention-grabbing language. It is mostly objective, and where needed, references are cited (which is a feature all too lacking in most books nowadays).

One may argue that the writers of the book are over-paranoid and exagerating when they name it "The threat", but the extensive research into the matter suggests that the accusations against the muslim brotherhood, which has its activies heavily analyzed here, are indeed valid. Without having to resort to petty namecalling or pseudo-theologist arguments, the book covers recent as well as past events. It argues against the engagement and adoptment to Shariah.

There are some who have claimed to me that this book was "racist", or "character-assasinating" all muslims and so on. Nothing could be further from the truth. The criticism and warning in this book is issued in respect to an ideologoy, in this case a religious ideology, and certain organizations following this religious ideology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the truth about Islamism October 30, 2010
This work should be considered the starting point for unravelling the double-talk coming out of the alphabet soup American Islamist groups such as CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, MSA and the rest.

This society and the West in general had better recognize the threat posed by the stealth jihadists, who feign moderation but at every opportunity attempt to enforce Shari'a compliance.

The work of Mr. Gaffney and his associates, in putting together this study is such a breath of fresh air that it should be required reading by the incoming Congress, which will hopefully jettison the destructive approach to Islamism that this administration has adopted.

When you hear charges of Islamophobia in the West, it simply means that someone has had the courage to tell the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars The single most important report of the decade November 12, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am probably an idealist to think that ours is a rational civilization and that once presented with all the facts most of the people would think rationally. This is why I believe that this book is the single most important book of the decade, and that once the facts are known people will pause and think and reassess what America's priorities should be.

Having read some three dozen books on Islam since 9/11, I was pleasantly surprised how this report managed in one volume to condense all the crucial relevant for us information on Islam I had learned in the last 9 years from various sources. The report builds an air tight case because it uses extensive quotes from the original Muslim sources as well as the writings of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams. No American will remain indifferent once he or she has read the report.

Almost all of the information presented in the report has been available on line for a long time, yet most people were either reluctant to look into this quite easily accessible information, did not know where to look or did not know its significance. This is now no longer the case since a plethora of security experts, among whom are former Director of CIA and a former Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Fleet, have put their names behind this report. This is the report you should read and it carries weight.

The report makes the point that it is the US President's constitutional duty to understand the threat: "It is, therefore, fair to ask of U.S. officials with national security responsibilities whether the failure to know an enemy violates not only professional rules of competency but their solemn oath of office? After all, if an officeholder must "protect and defend against all enemies" (N.B.
