By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 18 2006
Format: Hardcover
In this revealing work, Horowitz explores the hellish marriage between IslamoFascists and the highly networked American Left. These ideologues who once sided with the USSR and other repressive communist regimes have now wholeheartedly embraced radical Islam.

Their agenda emanates from the extreme left but their influence extends far beyond, also encompassing liberal discourse and the mass media. It seems that this radical agenda has now succeeded in capturing the heart and soul of the Democratic Party.

Unholy Alliance exposes and dissects the Left in fine detail, seeking for answers to why it has made an alliance with a reactionary and oppressive religious ideology. Also why it tried to undermine the War on Terror by opposing the liberation of Afghanitan and Iraq. The fracture of the consensus in American politics is another topic discussed here.

Part One, A Defining Moment, takes the investigation from 9/11, the response of the Administration, and the Left's response to that. It shows how the Left declared war on the War on Terror and started organising demonstrations long before any action was taken, becoming the vanguard for Saddam and the Jihad terrorists.

Part Two explores the Mind of the Left in a series that includes communist forerunners, the transition after the collapse of communism, the New Left, the Utopian Idea, the Nihilist Left and the Anti-American Cult. Throughout the book, prominent personalities are highlighted. Among them is Noam Chomsky, discussed with reference to a New Yorker profile where this nasty professor's malice and distortion of historical facts are pointed out. Chomsky's less strident but equally deceptive intellectual twin Howard Zinn also features.

As a former socialist, this book was an eye-opening glimpse into the true nature of the Left in the West today; its nihilistic devotion to the destruction of all civilization in order to replace it with they-know-not-what. The Left's view is that our society is so corrupted and evil that even the most noble nations in the world - the United States - is ultimately evil by nature, even though its own "crimes" against its people and "humanity" are far outstripped by those of Arab nations (eg. Sudan, where slave trading still goes on to this day, a fact overlooked by Jesse Jackson who demanded, just days before September 11, that the US pay out trillions of dollars in reparations to Black American families, even though the US ended slavery over 140 years ago...also failing to acknowledge that Arabs were trading in black slaves a thousand years before the West ever did, at a scale of nearly 15 to 1 in terms of actual slaves traded, and which is still going on at the hands of Sudanese Muslims.)

Vastly Illuminating Sept. 25 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.

Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.

This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air.

Should be read by anyone puzzled by the Bush phenomenon Oct. 3 2004
By BP - - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I think that anyone who is a supporter of Kerry who has lefty roots, who wants to understand why intelligent adults can support George Bush should read this book. This book has one flaw, and hence only 4 stars. But it is a great book that should also be read by anyone who carries their Chomsky around. A really good thing for young college students to read.

Hey, my mom was a Trotskyite in college. What Horowitz says is totally right on. I don't know that it means that making war on Iraq was the best chess move in this very serious war, but I found only one item that I thought was an error.

Horowitz states that the war on Iraq and the war on Afghanistan took a few weeks and didn't become a quagmire. However, applying the same logical razor as he used in his book: First, you can't tell if something has become a quagmire until years afterward. Second, there are definite signs of quagmire developing, and it worth noting that the US occupation of Afghanistan never has reached the level of dominance and security at any time that the Soviet Union had there for the early years of their acquisition.

But, aside from that, he really nails the center of the uneasiness, the political fulcrum which has become a core of the Bush administration. Fact is, the left and its leaders have supported far more terrorism and sold far more lies than anyone else, and that most definitely includes Chomsky, his endless revisionist history and blinkered apologist tracts.

Horowitz knows his subject like only an apostate can. Seriously, if you want to read a book that will help you understand this political mess we have in America today, read this.

Horowitz tells the truth July 19 2005
By Evelina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am a liberal. I recognize that Islam is not liberal. There is nothing liberal about it. I have often wondered how those who call themselves liberal can justify and even side with muslims who want to destroy the west. Horowitz does not know why, of course, but he does lay out how liberals, who consider the US to be a fascist nation, are actively supporting its destruction by a culture that really is a fascist culture. Is it that liberals think once we get rid of the powerful west, the rest of the world will be easily swayed to our way of thinking? This viewpoint is not only stupid it is insulting to non western peoples. It's also amazing that liberals never seem to notice how much muslims and other peoples hate what they regard as the manifestation of liberalsim. Muslims would rather kill their daughters than to have them have children out of wedlock. They hate the idea of children not obeying parents, of religion being mocked, of personal gratification being the end all of existence. The things that liberals want, more freedom of every kind, more sexual liberation, are what muslims abhor. If muslims every got enough power, the first thing they would do is destroy the liberals. So what are liberals thinking?

Ignore Mr. Horowitz at your own peril Oct. 18 2004
By M. Sevakis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Winston Churchill once said, "I have always felt that a politician is to be judged by the animosities he excites among his opponents." This is certainly true of President Bush. The same must be true of authors, at least in David Horowitz's case, judging by the animosities his critics exhibit. The book is fact. Fact that for anyone with modicum of knowledge regarding the history of radical socialism/leftism/communism will ring true. Mr. Horowitz knows whereof he speaks. Been there, done that. As a person who was once described as a former lefty who "knows where all the bodies are buried," he personally knows many of the players and the rules of the game better than most anyone else currently writing about those who believe that they know better than we what is good for us and all humanity.

Ladies and gentlemen, there is no free lunch. Mr. Horowitz elucidates the price to be paid if we accept the force-feeding of an illusory, earthly paradise that the radical socialist and jihadist are attempting to push down our throats. Swallow at your own peril. What David Horowitz has on the menu is well worth the price and infinitely more digestible.

Persuasive Sept. 29 2004
By T. Vaughan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An excellent read. Horowitz makes his case with unnerving facts and some excellent analysis.

An important book to read for any American. While not everyone will be as alarmed as Horowitz, it is difficult to not at least be troubled by the political sympathy of an entire "intellectual" movement in the U.S.

An important piece of work.
