Not just a guide but a wake-up call,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (Hardcover)
I had to get this book as soon as it became available.
This book lays out the danger that America now faces from islamofascism, or as the author puts it, Islamic Supremacists. In this book Pamela Geller discusses what is going on today, why mosques are going up in U.S. communities which have no large Muslim populations and how organizations which are sympathetic with Hamas and Hizbullah (if not working hand-in-hand with them) are trying to get special privileges and considerations in the United States... just as they have been doing in the UK, France and other European countries, where they ultimately intend to establish Shariah Law which will operate outside the existing civil legal networks.
As Americans we have a wonderful heritage of freedom and of liberty. In the past our history was marred by slavery and by attitudes towards women and minorities but the kernal of our founding principles made it possible to creat a nation which any American can be proud of regardless of their race, religion or creed.
But now we face a threat to those liberties and freedoms. Our media attempts to squelch any critical discussion of Islam, in effect to deny (or at least curtail) freedom of speech. This has already happened in Europe in some countries, where being critical of Islam, or even a subset of Islam, is treated as a hate crime.
In Muslim countries criticism of Islam is a crime, pure and simple. Not LIES about Islam, but any critical study of the religion. This is Shariah Law. If we accept this, are we not in effect accepting Shariah Law? Is this what our Revolution was for?
I have met and met people from the tiny Christian communities which exist in Egypt and Lebanon. Believe me, they are not treated the same as their Muslim brethren because Islam forbids treating them the same as Believers.
But this book has more, such as background into the Ground Zero Mosque and the corruption surrounding this deal to build a "triumphal" mosque on the site of the World Trade Center attacks. It talks about "legal jihad," where Islamicists (often with the aid of the ACLU) attempt to change standards in American life: everything from the proper attire for working at Disneyland to getting school textbooks rewritten to state that Muslims fought against "evil" when they expanded their religion across the Middle East (the Evil they discuss would of course include Coptic Christians in Egypt and the Eastern Church in Anatolia).
Ms. Geller tells you step-by-step how to deal with the islamist supremacists who are trying to destroy us from within, how to access public documents, how to identify radical Muslim groups who try to portray themselves as moderate (knowing that few Americans really know anything about these groups at all) and most important how to deal with the media. From a PR perspective I can tell you she is dead on. It's not easy to get your story out in this day of moral relativism and multicultural bias but if you follow these guidelines you will get your best shot at it.
If we wish to have freedom of religion and freedom of speech in America then men and women must stand up for these freedoms. They must stand up to the attempts of Islamofascists to change our society and create special privileges for themselves, as opposed to Muslims who are willing to live in this country on an equal footing with Jewish and Christian Americans. We must oppose the liberal left which hates the idea of Christian prayer in school, of crosses on public property but do not seem to have any problem with funding madrassahs (in controvention to seperation of Church and State). Ms. geller's book shows the way. We must get involved in our communities and to stand up for our rights... while we still have them.

Ms. Geller quotes the Society of Professional Journalists and their guidelines dated 6OCT01 on page 55 which, in the interests of "diversity" seeks to "understand the complexities of the events" which led to 9/11. The media also seek to rob concerned citizens of their voices by deliberately misstating the number of people who show up at pro-constitution/anti-Sharia events (like those at the Ground Zero Mosque protests) and I know from my own experience that media people on the ground look for five-second sound bites which make protestors look like racists or ignorant boobs.
The fact that the media is self-censoring when it comes to political correctness deny people their voice, but the traditional media is on its way out. Take a page from the islamofascists: use the new media to recruit! Use the new media to join others who see what is happening to our Constitutional rights in this country. Don't let political discourse become illegal "hate speech."

So it's a lie that the landing gear of one of the jetliners crashed on the site of the Ground Zero Mosque site? Look up Park51 on wikipedia and you can find a 3D map which shows how the landing gear crashed at the site (and an engine landed about a block away). Oh, and NYT yesterday that prayers have begun there since the 10th anniversary of the WTC attacks. But that's one way people like you try to get us to shut up: you redefine things.
Sorry. It IS the Ground Zero Mosque here and there's nothing you can do about it. You can call it Mohammed's-Super-Happy-Fun-Place if you want but it won't hold water with me.

I have no problem with anyone of any faith praying at Ground Zero... as long as they're not preaching the destruction of my country and the abandonment of rule of law as defined by the Constitution of the United States.

James D. Crabtree:
Then you have nothing to worry about.
Other than those Muslin markings on Southwest airplanes! Be afraid! Ms. Geller and her ilk want you stay scared!
Be very afraid!

You know, I strongly suspect that you haven't read the book. But don't let ignorance stop you from having an opinion.

James D. Crabtree:
Why would anything in this book be better than the lies and hate the author spews in interviews and on the Internets?
Do you believe the President of the United States is a Muslin? The son of Malcolm X? Do you believe it would make the slightest bit of difference if he were?
You swallow without critical thinking the whole "Ground Zero Mosque" lie. So you choose to read a book that reinforces your ignorance.

I do not believe your premise. Her book says nothing Obama other than his policies to undermine our country. Nice try. Maybe you should read the book to find something you don't like in it.
