"The 'Arab Spring' uncorked a jihadist genie in North Africa and the Middle East. It is about to wreak its mayhem here, with renewed terrorism. Americans need to inform themselves of the threat -- and ensure that their elected government in Washington takes action. Robert Spencer's ARAB WINTER COMES TO AMERICA sounds the alarm and shows what needs to be done." It is essential reading.
Apr. 17: Amazon is now providing a "Look Inside" feature that lists the chapter titles, with some limited "peaking" at a couple of chapters. Nonetheless, having the book in hand, I will provide some illumination about the contents of various chapters with my following summaries:
Discusses the foundations of the Islamic supremest beliefs of U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people and wounded 30 at Ft. Hood (Nov. 2009) - and describes how the Obama administration views his jihad act merely as normal "workplace violence".
Discusses the Islamic beliefs of the Boston Marathon bombers (July 2013): the Tsarnaev brothers - and how the Obama Feds avoided researching jihadis at mosques.
Discusses how Muslim groups cry "Islamophobia" to dissuade police/Feds from investigating jihadist theology.
Discusses how Muslim groups seek court protection from police investigation: CAIR vs NYPD. How American mosques provide cover and financial support for jihadists: Anwar al-Awlaki in Virginia; Faisal Shahzad in N.Y. Times Square (May 2010).
Discusses how Muslims try to stifle public inquiry by Islamo-realists about Islamism by claiming such inquiry is "hate speech"; and how Islamists failed to stifle Geert Wilders in Holland. Noted that in Oct. 2009, the UN Human Rights Council recognized "exceptions to the freedom of speech for `any negative racial and religious stereotyping' (p. 67) - and how Obama aides also supported an April 2011 UN resolution calling upon "members states to impose laws against `discriminatory' speech or speech involving `defamation of religion' - apparently, any questioning of Islam may be `illegal': so toss aside the U.S'. First Amendment. Mr. Spencer details instances whereby Islamists have misquoted him (and other Islamo-realists) in their denunciation of them as "hate speakers". Mr. Spencer discusses how jihad apologists falsely claim that he influenced the Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Breivik.
Discusses the origins of the Muslim Brotherhood (in Egypt), and how their fundamentalist followers are now immigrating and spreading their stifling sharia concepts across American. Mr. Spencer reveals how various conservative politicians have been duped into supporting supposedly `moderate' Muslim advocates.
Discusses Islamist support of various Democrats, and the Islamist witch-hunt of anti-Sharia Republicans.
Discusses how the Obama administration has "purged more than one thousand documents and presentations from counterterror training material for the FBI and other agencies. This material was discard at the demand of Muslim groups, which had deemed it inaccurate or offensive to Muslims" (p.131).
Discusses how the Obama administration is deflecting inquiry about Islamic terrorism by misdirecting such inquiry against Christian groups.
Reveals where in the Quran or ahadith that jihadists develop their terrorist theology against non-Muslims.
Oh, my, and so much more....
As the above subjects have NOT appeared in Mr. Spencer's prior books, this book is a totally new product. Some of the topics have been discussed in his daily online JIHAD WATCH website, but this book brings the daily updates together. True, in this book Mr. Spencer provides a couple of quotes from the Muslim holy book, the Quran, to show how the jihadi justify their terrorist attacks. However, to get a deep understanding of the jihadi/Islamikaze mentality, one needs to read his earlier books: "The Truth about Muhammad" and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam".
The Arab Spring cracked regimes that had sought a middle ground between the unfettered savagery of Islamic law and the modern world. The Arab Winter is trying to do the same in Western world. Current laws and political policies of Obama are designed to silence the critics of Sharia and blasphemy laws, and branding them as Islamophobia. The political and religious groups linked to Islamic terrorism silence scholars like Robert Spencer who would denounce them for what they are while using the threat of youth "radicalization" as blackmail. The author warns that the real struggle between Western civilization and the medieval terror theocracy (such as Sharia laws that enslave women, amputation, stoning-to-death, etc.) has left the deserts of Arabia and has firmly established in the Western World and it is here to stay for a long-hard fight for its supremacy. The Jihad attacks in Boston and New York by home grown jihadists is as bloody as the one in Pakistan, Egypt or Syria. Our future will be as bloody as these Islamic countries. The weather outside may carry the warmth of a balmy spring, but as long as a cold wind blows out of the desert where Islam was born, it will continue to freeze souls and minds and whenever a bomb goes off or a Muslim kills a non-Muslim in the name of Islam, a chilly strand of that wind blows through our minds and hearts, yet powerless to do much about it.
This is a highly readable book by an outstanding Islamic scholar knowledgeable about Islamic history; it is a very illuminating book. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the true nature of Islam and its ultimate goal in the Western World.
It's unfortunate, however, that his recommendations in the Epilogue such as telling the truth about Islamic jihad, enforcing existing laws, reclassifying Muslim organizations, ending Muslim immigration and reconfiguring our international alliances aren't likely to happen because of spineless politicians. Therefore, it's up to us ordinary citizens. Buying this book is a good step in that direction.
