This review is from: Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (Hardcover)
In plain, no-nonsense language Pam Geller lays out the Islamic Imperialist aims for the United States. Crossing the 'T's' and dotting the 'I's', she lays out a common sense approach to defending our way of life in steps and actions anyone can follow and implement. To follow her advice may be unpleasant at times, but you are not alone. What's more, Ms Geller explains she is not opposed to Muslims, as long as they abide by United States laws and customs.
Free speech is the issue. This is something Islam would, first curtail, then eliminate under the guise of 'freedom of speech'. This means, in a short answer, you are permitted to say what you will unless a Muslim takes exception to your words. The consequences are persecution and character assassination. This battle is fought out on an hourly basis on the web, the new battlefield.
Pay attention to her references to other works, web sites and persons who further elucidate the point she makes. One of her points is to be informed, up to date and to not let Muslims run over you. Use their facts to refute their claims.

Hollister - what you are missing is that Muslims say things which are incitements to violence under the guise of free speech and they are given a pass due to political correctness and cultural sensitivity. As Muslims speechify about killing jews, and establishing Islamic law in the US, replacing our constitutional laws - they are continually calling for speech that is negative about islam to be branded as hate speech and outlawed. It's sharia right before your eyes, under Islamic law it is blasphemy and forbidden to criticize Islam.

I'm happy you support free speech based on the U.S. Constitution. So do I. But Islam, as proclaimed by Muhammad, most definitely does seek to replace everything else with Islamic law, including the U.S. constitution. That is an indisputable element of the Muslim scriptures (Quran, Hadith, and Sira). Even the so-called secular Islamic states have sharia just behind the thin veil of secular law. Check out the reality of life for the few people of other religions in those places. It's not democracy, and it's not human rights.
In 2003, the European Court of Human Rights (not exactly Tea Partyers) ruled that sharia is incompatible with democracy. In 1948, the OIC (Islamic nations) rejected the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Why? Because it was incompatible with sharia, which is a core component of Islam, so they had to choose between Islam and human rights. Hmmm. What's a religion to do?... Much later (1990, I think it was) the OIC came up with a substitute-- the sick joke on humanity called the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights.
To reject sharia is very hard (impossible?) to accomplish without rejecting Muhammad's exalted leadership mandated by the Quran; and it's harder still when there's a radical wing who's very willing to intimidate or kill any Muslim who tries to reform Islam. Witness what happens to the scholars and artists who do. Islamic history has had plenty of reformers. They have accomplished close to nothing in the long run.
The Muslim Brotherhood planning documents discovered in Europe and the U.S.-- of which I have translations-- are not right-wing fantasies. Neither are a lot of other solid pieces of evidence, including a lot of material concerning CAIR, much of it from their own documents (see their lawsuit against the CAIR Watch web site). There most certainly is a push to establish Islamic law in the U.S.
The focus on terrorism is a bit of a red herring, much like the question of whether Islam is a religion of peace or not. Islam is an ideology of domination and control, and violence is just one end of the spectrum of its means to achieve its ends. If it can achieve domination and control without violence, it will be glad to do so. The end result is just as bad either way. Just study the plight of, e.g., the Christians in Egypt or Pakistan or [insert Islamic country name here].
Of course, most Muslims are not actively interested in this. They don't need to be. Totalitarian systems, from the Mafia to Nazism to Communism, only need a small committed core and an intimidated or passively cooperative mainstream to function, and Islam's committed core is relatively much larger than necessary. History shows Islam operating this way consistently, and it is happening again in the Arab Spring and in Turkey's slow regression from its pseudo-democracy. (Turkey never was a true democracy for non-Muslims.)
Iin the last few decades we have been and are emerging from the better part of a hundred years in which Islam has been forced, by the dominance of the Western colonial powers, etc., to lie largely dormant as the political ideology Muhammad designed it to be. This has given us a badly unrealistic picture of Islam. Islam has been on the mat of the boxing ring. Now it is getting up and shaking its head, so to speak, and it's starting to throw punches, while the Western world is swooning.
I hope things like the Internet and other mass communication media can undermine Islam and force it either to collapse or abandon Muhammad's political vision, but I doubt that it will do so without pressure. Would you dare wear a t-shirt with a cartoon of Muhammad on it? If so, you are really stupid. If not, please realize that Islam is not like Judaism or Christianity or Hinduism or Buddhism or anything else except maybe Scientology. If you think I am wrong, why not just go review the data from around the world and prove to me that Islam is not the religion that "does not play well with others." (The data won't support you.)

David Rasch says:
What is happening in the United States and Europe in another 'east meets est' scenario. What stands out is the 'east' in the form and shape of islam is islam's willingness to use violence with those who disagree and its reward of those who act in such manner. Islam is 'cultural imperialism'. They see the world from a 'tribal' view of us versus them. Anything goes in the effort to subdue, if not eradicate, the them in this equation. So, it behooves their (islam's) latest victims to just say no to any and all suggestions muslims make regarding change in western mores and values. This does not mean they cannot expres themselves ion the best western tradition of freedom of speech. It does draw the line when speech becomes violent reaction to criticism. A Brit may express this as muslims haviong 'bad manners'.

J.L. - thank you for elaborating. What you've laid out here is common knowledge anymore to persons who follow this kind of thing, who seek to be & remain informed - because it is CRUCIAL - but many still are NOT aware.
