About the Author
Bat Ye'or, born in Cairo, became a stateless refugee in 1957 and a British citizen in 1959. She is the author of three best-selling books on relations between Muslims and non-Muslims: The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians under Islam, The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam: From Jihad to Dhimmitude, and Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilization Collide.

Open this book on almost any page, and the way Ye'or ties history together will make you understand different historical events with a revelatory clarity.
Eurabia deals with France's desire, in being left out of the agreements between Britain, America and Russia post WWII, to create a separate empire consisting mostly of former Islamic French colonies in order to challenge America economically. This later turned into the Euro-Arab dialogue and now encompasses all major European countries.
But far from being a cultural exchange in order to better relations with the Middle East, it has become just a lobby for Arab Islamist countries to forward their covert jihad agenda (as fully revealed in Koranic texts), the centre piece of this manipulation of public opinion is conveying Islam as victims of the "demonic" America and Israel.
It is quite obvious that both parties of the Euro-Arab dialogue are using each other to their own ends, and the European politicians ignorant of history and with a disregard of antisemitism, allowing a devastating fate to befall on us all.
Reading Eurabia right after Dore Gold's "Hatred's Kingdom: How Saudi Arabia Supports the New Global Terrorism" (which highlights Saudi Arabia's unique version of Islam (Wahabism) and its central role in creating, financing and nurturing terror world wide) everything made sense to me. Eurabia is simply another front, another part of 'the calling' to Islamise the world. With Saudi Arabian petro-dollars and European politicians devoid of any backbone, this mad proposition is becoming a reality.
The leader of this compromise with Islam is France. Thanks to her, the E.U. is now hell bent on denying its Christian heritage pretending it owes as much to Islam as Christianity for the origins of European culture. She even manages to develop some vocabulary of her own and I do think the word Islamikaze deserves wide circulation, though it will not get it because we live in Eurabia. The cartoon controversy came after this book was published but the refusal to publish and offend Muslims is a prime example of the dhimmitude she portrays.
A detailed history of France and the E.U.'s alignment with the Arab world is given. Muslim minorities in Europe res not to be assimilated. Their demands are met in the name of multi-culturalism but it is really dhimmitude. Perhaps she does not make enough of the exception to this rule, France's ban on religious dress in school. but the one sided capitulation of West to East is well evidenced in this work.
She shows how Arab Christians have compromised and become advocates of Muslim views. One begins to understand why Middle eastern churches have such a poor record on evangelism. She criticises replacement theology which teaches that the church has replaced the Jews in God's purposes for mankind. I think her thesis is well proved and gives a timely warning which is going unheeded in Europe. My one criticism is that she equates a denial of the God given right of the state of Israel to exist according to biblical prophecy as anti-semitic as well as anti-Zionist. She should realise that one can defend the right of Israel to exist as a state without being a Zionist or anti-semitic. After all the Lubavich are non-Zionist Jews.
Particular emphasis being placed on what is described in this work as the "subversion" of the European Union towards what is cited herein as the "Islamization" of the continent.
Attention being drawn to the EU's perceived "need" of the Arab bloc of nations in order that the EU can "establish itself as a strategic rival to America".
The reader is presented with a succession of international agreements revealing an inferred European agreement to support the Arab/Islamic world's political aims - particularly its alleged anti-Israel stance - in exchange for "favoured" treatment in Arab/Islamic world markets.
The book discusses how the EU has allegedly made Israel the "cornerstone" of it's relations with the Arab world and the US.
Indeed, whilst a plethora of related subjects are dealt with, perhaps the core issues dealt with revolve around policies, attitudes, politics & even religion, pertaining to the Arab/Palestinian - Israeli issue.
Many questions are asked from the outset, that investigate such issues as the decision of the European Union to propose a constitution that renounces and denies it's Judeo-Christian roots.
Undoubtedly numerous readers will disagree with the views of the writer and find many of these issues to be extremely contentious indeed. However, to each question asked, an analysis is provided, with due reference to evidence which demands a verdict in itself.
Despite it's controversial nature, this is an absolute "must read".
