Book Description

31 Jan 2005
This provocative and disturbing book is about the transformation of Europe into "Eurabia," a cultural and political appendage of the Arab/Muslim world. Eurabia is fundamentally anti-Christian, anti-Western, anti-American, and antisemitic, while striving for Israel's disappearance and the vilification and isolation of America. The institution responsible for this transformation, and that continues to propagate its ideological message, is the Euro-Arab Dialogue, developed by European and Arab politicians and intellectuals over the past thirty years. With all the drama of a master writer, Bat Ye'or presents a wide range of historical and contemporary documents and facts to tell the story of how the European Union is being subverted by Islamic hostility to the very ethics and values of Europe itself. Readers who seek a fair resolution of the Arab-Israel conflict will be shocked by the evidence produced in these pages of unfair pressures and deliberate distortions. Europe's independence of spirit is shown in the process of being undermined. This book challenges the current demonization of Israel and should be essential reading for everyone interested in true peace in the Middle East

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Courageous. Essential reading. 14 July 2005
By M. D Roberts VINE VOICE
The reader is provided with an excellent, well written, presentation which investigates how the European Union has allegedly become overtly anti-American and anti-Israel.
Particular emphasis being placed on what is described in this work as the "subversion" of the European Union towards what is cited herein as the "Islamization" of the continent.
Attention being drawn to the EU's perceived "need" of the Arab bloc of nations in order that the EU can "establish itself as a strategic rival to America".
The reader is presented with a succession of international agreements revealing an inferred European agreement to support the Arab/Islamic world's political aims - particularly its alleged anti-Israel stance - in exchange for "favoured" treatment in Arab/Islamic world markets.

The book discusses how the EU has allegedly made Israel the "cornerstone" of it's relations with the Arab world and the US.
Indeed, whilst a plethora of related subjects are dealt with, perhaps the core issues dealt with revolve around policies, attitudes, politics & even religion, pertaining to the Arab/Palestinian - Israeli issue.
Many questions are asked from the outset, that investigate such issues as the decision of the European Union to propose a constitution that renounces and denies it's Judeo-Christian roots.
Undoubtedly numerous readers will disagree with the views of the writer and find many of these issues to be extremely contentious indeed. However, to each question asked, an analysis is provided, with due reference to evidence which demands a verdict in itself.
Despite it's controversial nature, this is an absolute "must read".

4.0 out of 5 stars Timely warning 24 May 2006
Bat Ye'or, Daughter of the Nile, is the pseudonym of a Jewish woman born in Egypt, who was deprived of her citizenship and is now a British citizen living in Switzerland. Her speciality is dhimmitude, how Christians and Jews are tolerated as minorities by Muslims provided they accept the burdens Islam places upon them, paying a special tax, no church bells or processions, no evangelism, church buildings restricted, the testimony of a non-Muslim not accepted against the word of a Muslim etc, etc. By this tolerant Islam historically allowed monotheistic minority communities to live in Muslim lands. It is an attitude of resigned inferiority and subservience to Islam. She contends that Europe today is developing such an attitude to the Arab world. Europe is becoming Eurabia. Islam and its history are seen through rose tinted Muslim made spectacles. Anti-Americanism, anti-semitism and Anti-Zionism are rife. Even liberal Muslims aim to make Europe Muslim, ruled by the inequitable shari'a.

The leader of this compromise with Islam is France. Thanks to her, the E.U. is now hell bent on denying its Christian heritage pretending it owes as much to Islam as Christianity for the origins of European culture. She even manages to develop some vocabulary of her own and I do think the word Islamikaze deserves wide circulation, though it will not get it because we live in Eurabia. The cartoon controversy came after this book was published but the refusal to publish and offend Muslims is a prime example of the dhimmitude she portrays.

A detailed history of France and the E.U.'s alignment with the Arab world is given. Muslim minorities in Europe res not to be assimilated. Their demands are met in the name of multi-culturalism but it is really dhimmitude.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hate spawns out of Hatred's Kingdom 21 May 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After having read so many books on Islamic theology, history and politics (and continually seeing Bat Ye'or's Eurabia mentioned) I was amazed on receiving Eurabia reading the contents page; almost every chapter has spawned a complete book in itself by different authors, such is the richness of Bat Ye'or's writing. I wanted almost every sentence and every line to written IN BOLD so that people would get it.

Open this book on almost any page, and the way Ye'or ties history together will make you understand different historical events with a revelatory clarity.

Eurabia deals with France's desire, in being left out of the agreements between Britain, America and Russia post WWII, to create a separate empire consisting mostly of former Islamic French colonies in order to challenge America economically. This later turned into the Euro-Arab dialogue and now encompasses all major European countries.

But far from being a cultural exchange in order to better relations with the Middle East, it has become just a lobby for Arab Islamist countries to forward their covert jihad agenda (as fully revealed in Koranic texts), the centre piece of this manipulation of public opinion is conveying Islam as victims of the "demonic" America and Israel.

It is quite obvious that both parties of the Euro-Arab dialogue are using each other to their own ends, and the European politicians ignorant of history and with a disregard of antisemitism, allowing a devastating fate to befall on us all.

Reading Eurabia right after Dore Gold's "
