Our freedom is under assault as never before. For years, we’ve known about the Left’s campaign to undermine our constitutional liberties and about radical Islam’s campaign to destroy our way of life. What we now see, thanks to Andy McCarthy’s piercing eye and gripping narrative, is that these campaigns work together, seamlessly. The Grand Jihad tells a story America needs to hear.”
- Rush Limbaugh
"Once I opened the first page, I could not put it down. McCarthy has produced an unparalleled masterpiece that every American must read."

"When prosecution rather than war was our means of fighting terrorism, Andy McCarthy was the tip of the spear. Now that we are at war, a new set of challenges besets us (including going back to prosecution as a means of fighting). And, once again, Andy McCarthy is the tip of the spear--in educating and warning us both about the threat from radical Islam and the dangers of our own fecklessness in fighting it. Everything Andy writes is must-reading, and must-heeding."

"The threats to our freedom and our security are not separate. For years, statists and Islamists have made common cause in a civilizational war. Their target is our Constitution and the culture of individual liberty that makes America, America. In The Grand Jihad, Andy McCarthy unveils this conspiracy like it’s never been exposed before. This is a clarion call from a fearless fighter for freedom. Read this book and you’ll understand what we’re up against and why we have to stop it."
- Mark R. Levin, author of the Number One Bestseller Liberty & Tyranny; Radio Host
"Do you care about the survival of our country? Then you must read this book. The brilliant, brave, and stalwart Andy McCarthy exposes how our external Islamist enemies join with our internal Alinskyite enemies to destroy all that we hold dear. Every American must understand how the Grand Jihad of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Western civilization-undermining agenda of the Revolutionary Left operate in deadly sync. As McCarthy shows, this sabotage is taking place on our college campuses, in our courts, and with invaluable help from the enablers of the Obama White House. We must not submit."

The real threat to the United States is not terrorism. The real threat is the sophisticated forces of Islamism, which have collaborated with the American Left not only to undermine U.S. national security, but to shred the fabric of American constitutional democracyfreedom and individual liberty. In The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America, bestselling author Andrew C. McCarthy provides a harrowing account of how the global Islamist movement’s jihad involves far more than terrorist attacks, and how it has found the ideal partner in President Barack Obama, whose Islamist sympathies run deep.
McCarthy is the former federal prosecutor who convicted the notorious Blind Sheikh” and other jihadists for waging a terrorist war that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In his national bestseller, Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter 2008), he explored government’s conscious avoidance of the terrorist threat, which made the nation vulnerable to mass-murder attacks. In The Grand Jihad, he exposes a more insidious peril: government’s active suppression of the Islamist ideology that unabashedly vows to conquer America.” With the help of witting and unwitting accomplices in and out of government, Islamism doesn’t merely fuel terrorism but spawns America-hating Islamic enclaves in our midst and gradually foists Islam’s repressive law, sharia, on American life. The revolutionary doctrine has made common cause with an ascendant Left that also seeks radical transformation of our constitutional order. The prognosis for liberty could not be more dire.
Andrew C. McCarthy was a top federal prosecutor involved in some of the most significant cases in recent history. Decorated with the Justice Department’s highest honors, he retired from government in 2003, after helping launch the 9/11 investigation. He is one of America’s most persuasive voices on national security issues and author of the bestseller Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad. Currently, he is a senior fellow at the National Review Institute in Washington, D.C., and a contributing editor at National Review.
