Book 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 10 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How is freedom of speech eroded, very often when nobody notices? It is done very gradually of course, by chipping away at it, slowly and methodically, as described in this excellent book. An essential read for any lover of freedom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and troubling. 26 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A must read for the people of the awakening.
Empirically sound and backed up, Islam and it's followers are growing inside our respective country's like the Alien that eventually bursts free from John Hurts chest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine summary of the main threat to civilisation 1 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This pamphlet is prescient of the trend that leads to the Paris killing of cartoonists and ultimately ISIS. Well thanks to ISIS we now know clearly what we are up against.

Excellent and thought provoking. A must-read for anyone concerned about the rise of Islamic extremism but who approaches the subject with an open mind.

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 Islamophobia = fear of islam. 14 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Quite what anybody is supposed to do about someone being fearful, I don't know! Islam is a fragile belief that is vulnerable to any rational discussion: hence believers want to prevent any discussion by altering democracy in a way that demonises rational thought, rather than demonising islam, They have succeeded, and this book lists the things democracies have given up: free speech in order to satisfy a tiny bunch of madmen that democracies are frightened of. The rulers in the time of the Crusaders knew only too well the evils of islam and attempted to wipe it out for the wrong reasons. Sadly it is back, (though not in as big numbers as you might think, more islamic escapees come to the west to than are joining it). The happy-clappy evangelicals are growing faster, but do not want special laws to protect their ignorance. It is amazing that after 400 years of enlightenment (something that never touched the islamic lot), the west bend over backwards to placate them. This book lists all the liberal trouser dropping and sucking-up. It makes nauseating reading. Amazon's sucking up will be that the will delete this review out of fear of islam:
