From the Inside Flap

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 democracy—freedom 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.

“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."

- Steven Emerson, Bestselling author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us, and five other books; Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism

"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."

- William J. Bennett, Washington Fellow, The Claremont Institute; Radio Host

"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."

- Michelle Malkin, author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies

As one who was raised in a muslim country in a muslim family and society, I often find books by westerners trying to describe islam through western paradigms to fail to grasp the reality of islam. Finally someone breaks through all the political correctness and presents true islam as clearly compatible with Jihad. To the surprise of many westerners, for 1300+ years, since the prophet of islam, mohammad himself practiced jihad as he took out 600+ Jews and beheaded them in front of the faithful muslim leaders following mohammad's understanding of God.

This author rightly presents the reality that many wonderful muslim neighbors do not want sharia law! They are muslim culturally because their parents were muslims, but they want to be able to walk in public with members of opposite sex, play chess, play soccer, have a drink every now & then, have fun and live a happy life. True Islamic sharia law practiced by muslims for centuries requires the mullahs or imams of the nation to tell all muslims what they can and cannot do. If mohammad can take a 6 year old girl as a bride along with his other teenage wives and concubines and slaves, then muslims are taught that it is right for all muslims. If mohammad told us to hate all nonmuslims, including his final words prior to his surprise death, that we are all to hate Christians and Jews and behead all who will not submit to sharia law, then all faithful muslims are supposed to accept mohamamad's words as divine and imitate his lifestyle.

Under modern nonrestrictive interpretations of first amendment, the author rightly points out that the mastermind of the 1993 NY bombing under Clinton, laid out his case that as a muslim religious ruler, he was free to issue Islamic fatwas to destroy the lives of innocent nonmuslims.

The Koran instructs "Seek knowledge, in China, if necessary" (Sura 39:12) and in "The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America," erudite author Andrew C. McCarthy provides a cargo of interesting and disturbing information concerning Islamic terror and its partner on the Left. The Koran commands: "Slay the idolaters, wherever you find them ... ambush them" (Sura 9).

Remember that it was Muhammad himself, who led or ordered twenty-seven warring attacks against the "infidels." He, as their supreme lawgiver, gave the order to decapitate 900 Jewish men for opposing him and not receiving him as a prophet. The perennial threat to the West is Islamic terrorism along with its advancement and in "The Grand Jihah" McCarthy offers a vexing report regarding the Islamic aims for global conquest while much of the Left encourages such.

The Islamic moral code is an ethical system that sanctions death for verbal crimes and the repression of women. It is worth noting that Allah has 99 attributes ascribed to him in the Koran and not one of those traits is "love." Love is not part of his eternal nature. Moreover, love is the heart and motivation of true morality. The Islamic god cannot account for love since it is not an eternal attribute of Allah's nature. Many ancient and modern Muslims profess that Allah is a god, who has commanded his followers to pursue jihad against Jews, Christians, and all other "infidels" (see Sura 2:193; 8:12, 17, 41, 60; 9:5, 14, 29, 123; and Hadith 1:25; 4:196, etc.).

The title of Andrew McCarthy's new book isn't something he made up, it is taken from a 1990s document from a "mainstream" "non-violent" Muslim organization describing their long term goal of hollowing out Western culture using its own values of tolerance and religious freedom. Note that Islamic countries do NOT allow tolerance and religious freedom in anything like the Western manner. And their two holiest cities are closed to us non-Muslims because we are unworthy to enter such holy places. Once they have hollowed out Europe, America, and other nations, they can fill the void with Sharia, which is the Muslim law and turn these nations into Islamic countries and their Grand Jihad will have achieved victory. Note, that terror is not necessarily part of this strategy.

In fact, Al Qaeda and their brother terrorist groups are frowned at in some of this Salafi circles. Others see them as tools that supply cover for their "moderate" work. But make no mistake about it, McCarthy warns, the goal of the Islamist moderates and the terrorists is the same. They desire the collapse of the West and the rise of Islam as the ruling way of life throughout the world. To the extent that Sharia spreads into Western democracies the strategy of "Grand Jihad" is victorious.

Have you heard of the Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani? He is a very powerful Shia cleric and deemed by our U.S. government as a "moderate" and key ally in Iraq. He teaches that we non-Muslims should not be touched or even associated with. That we, as non-believers, are filth no different than feces, urine, pigs and the like. Does that sound like moderation and mutual respect to you?
