From the Inside Flap

Does America face a jihadist threat that's even bigger than terrorism?

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

America, Spencer demonstrates, is all but oblivious to a new kind of threat presented by a loosely organized movement whose activists are well funded, highly motivated, and relentless in pursuit of their agenda. This book is a wake-up call for a country so focused on foreign threats that it has left itself vulnerable to a growing danger much closer to home.

Robert Spencer describes an America that welcomes its mortal enemies into its midst, gives them equal time with our founders' ideals, and defends their right to hate us. Spencer is a veteran of the struggle against jihad; his previously published titles include "The Truth About Muhammad," "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, and the Crusades," "Religion of Peace, Why Christianity is and Islam isn't," "The Myth of Islamic Tolerance," and "Islam Unveiled..." Spencer adds his voice to Islam's courageous adversaries, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Brigitte Gabriel, Mark Steyn, Bruce Bawer, Carafano and Rosenweig, Benjamin and Simon, Efraim Karsh, Mary Habeck. Take the time to understand Spencer's and these other authors' warnings; distill their thoughts; and join the resistance to Islam's malevolent spread in America. France and Holland are already past the tipping point and will have some form of sharia law within 50 years. If you don't think it can happen here in America consider the Minnesota taxi incidents of 2006.

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.

After seven years, the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 are fading in the memory of many, and with no further attacks on U.S. soil, it's easy for too many Americans to dismiss the threat of radical Islam as "the politics of fear."

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.

Once again, Spencer delivers. Never has this topic been more important than now, when we are again becoming complacent about Islam, believing that because we have not been attacked again, we are safe.
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.

Yet another great contribution from Robert Spencer. He should receive America's highest award for service to the nation. The only way we will resist Islam's steadily increasing influence on and subversion of our culture is for a large grass roots movement to develop. Such a movement requires large numbers of people that are very well educated as to the full truth and danger of Islam, its history, and its votaries' goals and means of advancing their unholy cause through all overt and covert means. Mr. Spencer's latest book will, hopefully, help develop the general awareness needed to kick start the massive grass roots movement needed to oppose Islam's extremely motivated and ruthless adherents. Our leaders and institutions have failed us miserably. We must, as private citizens, take back control of our society and save our culture or, like all of Islam's past victims, see our culture destroyed. Just consider how much of a foothold Islam has gained in the West since the 1970's. Give it another 39 years and its advance may be irreversible. While he may not be aware of his own importance, the West needs Mr. Spencer and another one million people just like him. As with all of his other books I have read, in Stealth Jihad, Mr. Spencer exhibits his usual and natural talent for stating his case and proving it. He would have made a good attorney. Perhaps, metaphorically, he is a lawyer and his clients are all the people that want to avoid the physical and mental slavery inherent when Islam gains enough control of any society. If you want to leave the free society you enjoyed to your grandchildren, buy Stealth Jihad and join the community of Islamic critics fighting to oppose Islam in all of its guises.
