This book describes how a mixture of government policies by successive Tory and Labour governments created a large and fierce fifth column of radical Muslim inside the UK's borders. The book points the finger of blame at four things. Firstly, is the human rights industry, which under the excuse of protecting human rights has enabled even very reasonable security and deportation measures to be struck down as alleged "human rights violations". Secondly, is the doctrine of multiculturalism, which forbids a frank discussion of the compatibility of Islam and liberal democracy as well as certain cultural practises like honour killings. Thirdly, is the collapse in Western cultural confidence engineered by the far left PC "elites", which makes radical Muslims view the UK as weak, decadent and deserving of conquest. Finally, is the way Israel is being viewed as a sacrificial lamb to appease radical Islam.
Phillips also show cases the peculiar alliance between the far left and radical Islam, exemplified by Ken Livingstone and George Galloway. she says that this alliance has led to two things, a growth in anti-Semitism and a vicious anti-Israel climate in the media and academia. She writes a spirited and extremely frank defence of Israel, and dispels a few myths in the process.
The book does not have any obvious weaknesses. Some readers may disagree with here views on Israel, even if they agree about the threat poses by radical Islam and the problems associated with multiculturalism. All in all, the book is a must read for anyone concerned about radical Islam and curious as to why our political elites fail to deal with it.
