Product Description

Product Description

In 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeni, ruler of Islamic Iran issued a fatwa calling on all Muslims worldwide to murder the novelist Salman Rushdie for insulting the Prophet Muhammad and Islam. Rushdie’s crime? Blasphemy or “Islamophobia,” as it has come to be known. Since then we have seen worldwide violent Muslim protests over cartoons, blasphemy laws in Europe, prosecutions of notable opponents of Islamic terror like Oriana Fallaci and Geert Wilders, and the demonization of courageous opponents of Islamic imperialism and terror in the West. David Horowitz and Robert Spencer describe the origins of the word “Islamophobia” as a coinage of the Muslim Brotherhood and show how the Brotherhood launched a campaign, by ginning up “Islamophobia” as a hate crime, to stigmatize mention of such issues as radical Islam’s violence against women and murder of homosexuals, and the constant incitement of many imams to terrorism. The authors make the case that “Islamophobia” is a dagger aimed at the heart of free speech and also at the heart of our national security.

A very good read, a wake up call if you like. It makes sense what is written, it's going on all over the world

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is much better and more serious than the cover suggests. They should really change the cover, which looks rather sensationalist. That's the only reason I didn't give it five stars. The book itself is both thought-provoking and well-researched and explains how the accusation of 'Islamophobia' is being used to silence concerns expressed over the Islamisation of society in western countries. It explains the actual definition of 'Islamophobia' and you will be very surprised at how wide ranging that definition is.

All in all, a clear and concise assessment of how many people have been persuaded to self-censor when it comes to what they say and even what they allow themselves to think, and how this benefits the small number of Muslims who want to completely undermine and then replace western culture. It explains that using 'Islamohobia' to silence critics is not actually helpful to the vast majority of Muslims who want to live peacably in the western world. This is because, if all criticism is effectively silenced, these moderates will then themselves become the target of the Islamist extremists who regard them almost as collaborators.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but deeply troubling 28 Nov 2012
By RonnieC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book(let) cover to cover. Although it covers a lot of the intolerance to freedom of expression seen right across the western world, I was struck by how much of it was relevant to the UK at the present moment. Imams can give public addresses each Friday calling for the murder of Westerners, and nothing is done about it for years, but anyone who expresses concern about what is going on is instantly condemned as a bigot. Tomorrow sees the publication of the Leveson report into the future of British journalism, which is expected to call for state regulation of the press (presumably by supporters of multiculturalism). If such a report is enacted, goodbye freedom, it was nice knowing you.

Why only 4 stars? The formatting in the Kindle version was terrible. Was difficult to figure out what was the main text and what was a reference footnote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frightening 7 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is pretty scary - I wish it didn't ring true but it does. It's asking Westerners just exactly what we believe in and what would fight for. How seriously do we take Socrates? How seriously do we take Orwell?

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it! 17 Nov 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No wonder British muslims forced the Home Office to ban Robert Spencer
from entering UK.
This book is an eye opener. Everyone in UK should read it at least three times,
very slowly, to find out that he/she has been lied to every single day for a very
long time. It's a wake up call but it may be too late.
Read it before your government rules ''it is not inducive to public safety'' and bans
it too which may be much sooner than you think.

"Islamophobia" was a term designed as a weapon to advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them. &quote;

Because the tenets of Islamic belief are not open to question, and because as a religion Islam prescribes moral behavior for every aspect of individual and social life, Islamic law sharia is by its very nature totalitarian. &quote;
