From the Inside Flap
THE TERRORIST NEXT DOOR
Erick Stakelbeck knows what makes radical Islamic terrorists tick. He knows what motivates them, how they plot, plan, and operate, and how they infiltrate our society to threaten our nation. Every American who cares about tomorrow needs to read The Terrorist Next Door now.”—Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, USMC (Ret.), bestselling author of American Heroes in Special Operations
The Terrorist Next Door could not be more timely. As the U.S. Congress, tasked by the American public, is attempting to identify the threat of jihadi penetration of the country, Erick Stakelbeck produces the ultimate reader on how jihadist enclaves are expanding inside the United States. The author uses his exclusive on-the-ground experiences as a correspondent in the U.S. and Europe to dish out the hard facts about the Islamists’ ideology and their infiltration of the very heartland of America. A must-read.”—Dr. Walid Phares, Congressional advisor on counter-terrorism and author of Future Jihad: Terrorist Strategies against America
In The Terrorist Next Door, Erick Stakelbeck has done a great job of capturing the essence of today’s threat to our liberties from the followers of authoritative Islam. His experience and research make this a very important book for every American at a critical time in our history. ” —Lieutenant General William G. Jerry” Boykin (Ret.), former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence

Some politicians will lead the American people to believe the Terrorism problem has been blown out of proportion in an attempt to strengthen our elite military to the extreme. Some will even coin Stackelbeck an alarmist. While librals pray for world peace and seek resolution through endless discussions with country leaders, we must look to elminate the problem by policy reformation and not hesistate to launch our military into action. Stackelbeck discusses how the failures to rise to such a task have already weakened our countries image in past and have led to Terrorist, such as bin Laden, calling the United States a "paper tiger."
If i were to summ up this book in one quote from Stackelbeck,it would be "American officials, crippled by political correctness, have chosen simply to ignore the fact that Islamist Terrorism does not occur just out of thin air, but is driven by a rigid, longstanding, and Koranically inspired ideological system (page 180). The reader is truly challenged with the question, has our security strengthened or weakened since the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Stackelbeck argues that our nation's security has indeed weakened. Therefore, this message must get delivered to the stakeholders in our Nations security, which includes every informed American, so that we can pick up on the many visible signs and red flags that exist right before our eyes. Please read this book, it will open your eyes as it did to me.
