Book Description

Sep 2004
The bestselling Unholy Alliance-now in paperback! Former Leftist radical David Horowitz blows the lid off the dangerous liaison between U.S. liberals and Islamic radicals. With America's battle against the disastrous force of terrorism at hand, Horowitz takes us behind the curtain of the unholy alliance between liberals and the enemy-a force with malevolent intentions, and one that Americans can no longer ignore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Read 7 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
One of the mysteries of life is the alliance between Islamist extremists and leftists such as Trotskyist revolutionaries. According to their dogmas they are violently opposed to each other, but everywhere such extremists are to be found giving each other mutual support. This is disguised by the tactic of adopting organisation names which obscure their origins and instead invoke some universal good. For example they will claim to be Anti-War (who isn't?) whilst in reality supporting the most brutal war-makers around. Whatever the answer, understanding this 'Unholy Alliance' will shed light on what truly motivates these extremists.
Horowitz's book does not do too much to explore the causes of this bizarre phenomenon but it does a fantastic job of documenting it and will be an eye-opener to almost everyone who reads it, even if already rather well-informed.
In my opinion it would be foolish to be active in politics these days without a good understanding of the topic Horowitz covers. I recommend this book most highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring the heart of evil 14 Jun 2008
In this brilliant and extensive work , David Horowitz provides a dammning critique of the radical left in the USA , and their evil alliance , based on hatred of America and Western civilization , with Islamic terror.

"Unholy Alliance' is chilling in it's exploration of the depths to which the left will sink , Horowitz deals with the sick and twisted thinking that has led to the Hitler-Stalin Pact of the 20th century , the close alliance between the extreme left and Islamic radicals.

These are the same forces that supported the Soviet Union and it's proxies during the Cold War , denouncing the USA and the West as the source of all evil , and excusing the crimes of the Communist Bloc.

Despite the fact that on face value the Left and the Islamic fundamentalists differ diametrically on social issues , such as womens and gay rights , these differences fade into insignifficance as the two forces of evil are united by their hatred, defining the USA and of course , Israel, as the source of all that is wrong in the world today .He quotes leftists who claim that Islamic terrorists are 'basically forces of national liberation' or that 'the real terrorists have always been the United States of America'.

Horowitz presents a dammning critique of the so-called 'anti-war movement , which was created in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks to attack the USA after the USA was attacked , to defeat the war on terror , to prop up brutal dictatorships like that of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and the regimes of Iran , Syria, North Korea and Cuba.

5.0 out of 5 stars As gruesome as the Nazi-Soviet pact 18 Jun 2005
In this revealing work, Horowitz explores the hellish marriage between IslamoFascists and the highly networked American Left. These ideologues who once sided with the USSR and other repressive communist regimes have now wholeheartedly embraced radical Islam.

Their agenda emanates from the extreme left but their influence extends far beyond, also encompassing liberal discourse and the mass media. It seems that this radical agenda has now succeeded in capturing the heart and soul of the Democratic Party.

Unholy Alliance exposes and dissects the Left in fine detail, seeking for answers to why it has made an alliance with a reactionary and oppressive religious ideology. Also why it tried to undermine the War on Terror by opposing the liberation of Afghanistan and Iraq. The fracture of the consensus in American politics is another topic discussed here.

Part One, A Defining Moment, takes the investigation from 9/11, the response of the Administration, and the Left's response to that. It shows how the Left declared war on the War on Terror and started organising demonstrations long before any action was taken, becoming the vanguard for Saddam and the Jihad terrorists.

Part Two explores the Mind of the Left in a series that includes communist forerunners, the transition after the collapse of communism, the New Left, the Utopian Idea, the Nihilist Left and the Anti-American Cult. Throughout the book, prominent personalities are highlighted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining propaganda 25 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David Horowitz used to be a "loony lefty". Despite being White and Jewish, he belonged to the Black Panther Party during their *worst* phase, when the Panthers had degenerated and become a racketeering crime gang (they even murdered their own party treasurer, another White person, when she uncovered some illegal drug dealings).

Horowitz, to his credit, left the Panthers after this. Less creditably, he then joined forces with the loony right!

"Unholy alliance" is ostensibly a book about how the American left supports Muslim fundamentalism and opposes Israel. An interesting subject, to be sure. I'm one of those rare leftists loony enough to *oppose* Muslim fundamentalism. Horowitz, however, never really delivers. His book turns out to be a truly demented screed of Cold War propaganda, delivered decades too late. Indeed, the author is so bad at spinning lies and distortions, that the book actually becomes entertaining. Well, at least up to a point. Two-thirds through, I decided not to finish it...

It's a well-known fact, that the United States (in itself a democracy) supported a whole string of right-wing dictatorships during the Cold War. Sometimes, the US even supported Communist regimes or movements, provided these were anti-Soviet. Post-Mao China and the Khmer Rouge (!) after their fall from power comes to mind. Nor were all members of NATO democratic. Both Greece and Turkey were military dictatorships for a period, but neither was excluded from NATO. It's obvious that whatever the "Cold" War might have been, it certainly wasn't a conflict between "democracy" and "Communist totalitarianism".

How does Horowitz attempt to prove the opposite? He claims that the Korean War was a conflict between democracy and dictatorship.
