From the Inside Flap
While our homeland security efforts are focused on preventing terrorist attacks, another jihadist threat is growing right here in America--in plain sight.In Stealth Jihad, Islam expert and New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer blows the whistle on a long-term plot by Islamic jihadists to undermine the United States. This effort aims not to bring America to its knees through attacks with guns or bombs, but to subvert the country from within--by gradually Islamizing America. The ultimate goal, the stealth jihadists themselves declare, is nothing less than the adoption of Islamic law in the United States.
Describing the disturbing ease with which stealth jihadists have already become ensconced in the American political and media landscapes, Spencer exposes the full modus operandi of the movement as revealed in a stunning document unveiled in a recent terrorism funding trial. In this unsettling book, he explains:
* Which Islamic fundamentalist organization is behind the stealth jihad
* How stealth jihadists have reinvented themselves as mainstream civil rights activists--despite their many past declarations of Islamic supremacism
* How stealth jihadists played a key role in formulating U.S. government guidelines for the War on Terror
* How insistence on "accommodating" Islamic cultural and religious practices in America is part of a calculated strategy to achieve a dangerous larger agenda
* The effort by stealth jihadists to whitewash the teaching of Islam in schools
* What can be done to defeat the stealth jihad and preserve America's liberty

One taxi driver refused to pick up passengers carrying alcoholic beverages at the Minneapolis airport because to do so would "insult Islam." Soon other drivers joined the embargo against passengers with alcohol. The city tried a system using different colored taxis to accommodate the drivers who were and weren't willing to transport alcohol, but the system broke down. Within three months 5,400 passengers were denied service. The drivers claimed that they were defending "freedom of religion." In fact, Spencer shows that no one was preventing the drivers from practicing Islam. What the drivers were doing was "asserting sharia norms over non-Muslims.Read more ›
But as the tireless, prolific Robert Spencer details in his latest book, the threat is no less real and isn't only about overt acts of terrorism. It's a decades-long subversive effort, on behalf of a totalitarian ideology, to tear down America and the West from within, using our own freedoms and cultural openness to erode those freedoms and literally subjugate us.
Sounds far-fetched? It's precisely such skepticism and overconfidence that keeps too many of us from acknowledging the imminent danger. Europe is already nearly a lost cause, and it's happening in America as well. It's only a question of whether we'll recognize the threat and push back, or keep giving gradual ground until our way of life is no longer. And that's the value of this book: to educate us about the implacable ideology of our enemy, to expose the various fronts on which this covert battle is being waged - legal, political, educational and cultural - and to offer suggestions as to how to take action.
The book's not long but covers a lot of ground. It's scholarly but a quick and compelling read. I can't recommend it enough, if only because its message is literally critical for America's survival. You'll be disturbed and outraged, but inspired as well.
In the coming months you will see the usual reviews here attempting to smear Mr. Spencer as a racist and "Islamophobe," and to trash the book as a pack of lies - reviews usually from customers who clearly haven't even read the book.Read more ›
This is and always has been the most insidious form of jihad against us, and we need to be aware of it, speak out against it, and defeat it.
Spencer lays it all out clearly, convincingly, and in his usual scholarly fashion.
DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK! Read it, pass it on to your family and friends, send copies of it to your Politicians and law enforcement.
