I doubt very much that those giving the book one star have actually read this book. It's a very well researched work, accurate and well argued. The dangers of Islamification and the methods used to spread this evil cult in the UK are laid bare, so naturally Islamists and appeasers will not like this book.

Thank you, Melanie Phillips for a superb and courageous piece of writing. It is the mark of a good journalist to be able to seek out the truths which others either cannot or will not see. There is a deafening silence in 21st century Britain regarding the threat posed by militant Islam and a concerted attempt at refusing to understand from exactly where that threat comes. Melanie gives us the uncomfortable truth - that Islamic terrorism stems from deep within the religion itself and the nature of its followers. It cannot be merely put down to poverty, and a denial of opportunities to Muslims. She exposes what we possibly know in our hearts, that Islamic fundamentalism is about conquest and a determined attempt to reorganise society along Islamic lines. She highlights the hapless way that the authorities turn a blind eye to all forms of non-violent extremism and in so doing, tacitly help that extremism to take root here in Britain. It's a well-written, well researched book and Britain might - just might - be a safer place for the fact she's written it. I think this is a must read for all who want to understand the true nature of the threat our country faces.

Frightening. Isn't it funny how obvious things become once you can see the signs? I was a UK cop for 30 years and we were told to hold Islam in particular reverence, with no planned arrests during Ramadan fasting - for a whole month - and so on. Of course we were told not to make planned arrests on Christmas Day, but that is as it says, a single day, not a month. Why are they treated so specially, breaching every cop's oath to treat everyone the same? The answer of course is fear, plain and simple. UK police, and I suspect police forces across the Western world are fearful of Islam, of upsetting them, and of being called 'racist' in the process. So it's easier to let them get on with it than to do something about it and stir up a hornet's nest of trouble. It's a really dreadful situation and it's getting much, much worse.

We are all aware of the thin line we tread these days of not offending minorities of any sort - even though some of those 'minorities' are no longer minor and uninfluential. Nevertheless, the facts still have to be made available and this book may help Britain to refrain from continuing putting it's head in the sand and hoping that those issues which we seem to be fearful of talking about are discussed clearly without fear. There are many facts in this book which I wasn't aware of. I think a multicultural society ideal incorporating respect and tolerance is a fine and rich one but I have felt there is often little respect from many from the guests to this nation - and there seems to be a mentality of neglecting and ignoring issues which certainly aren't going to fade away overnight. It's strange how I found myself having to choose my words very carefully in this review. The cover of my version is different (updated?) and doesn't show the image of a person now deported who has shown no respect but contempt, I feel I have to add, for the nation which had given him a home, benefits and freedom to preach the poison which has helped to produce the terror within it.

I usually take Melanie Phillips' columns in the Daily Mail with a pinch of salt but I've got to hand it to her for writing a book that presents in rather stark terms the sinister agenda being pursed by the Islamists and their sympathisers on the left in Britain today. What is equally clear is how the Labour government completely hamstrung themselves with the Human Rights Act and various related EU directives, all of which compromised the security of this country. Anyone who is interested in the ideological threat to Britain should read it and then make up their own mind. The book is certainly a valid contribution to the debate.

As a man I have spent my life defending the rights of women. Once again a woman has the courage to wake us up to the incoming barbarians. This brilliantly politically incorrect book in the same vein as Oriana Fallaci and all those women who have testified and are still being treated like animals by this sect brings us the terrible truth that our media and political dwarfs try to ignore. Leonard of Vinci said "Neglecting to recognise and punish crime is akin to supporting it".

Format: Hardcover
This is a critical book that everyone interested in the fate of the world we live in must read. In this pivotal work Melanie Phillips explains how largely due to the appeasement policies of the liberal and left elites, Britain is becoming in international hub of Islamic terrorism, and how Islamic culture is destroying and pushing out the Judeo-Christian and British tradition in the United Kingdom.

Phillips explains how Britain "still doesn't grasp that it is facing a pincer attack from both terrorism and cultural infiltration and usurpation". Those who call attention to the threat of Islamic cultural takeover and the threat of sustained terrorism are accused of paranoia and 'Islamophobia' by Islamophiles who aim to silence any criticism of Islamism. Due to the fact that establishment of today is run by the post-modern Left that has given up the idea of economic or class equality and has instead focused on enforcing multiculturalism, political correctness and 'anti-racism', the last of which is basically a code for anti-White racism. When in 2006 Europe was gripped by the furor and violent Islamic rage due to a series of Danish cartoons likening Islam's prophet Mohammed to violence , the former British foreign secretary Jack Straw ignored the violence and instead condemned those newspapers that had published the cartoons. While declaring that free speech must be limited to avoid giving offense or insult to minorities, namely Muslims, the British elite seemed to believe it should be unlimited when it came to Muslims inciting violence.
In February 2006, Muslims demonstrating outside London's upmarket Knightsbridge suburb were allowed to call for bombings and decapitations, while the police benignly looked on.
