In her review of Andy McCarthy’s excellent and essential book, The Grand Jihad, Pamela Geller graciously hat-tips my earlier contribution to the study of the Islamic supremacist effort in the U.S., Stealth Jihad: “The Grand Jihad is Worth Reading,” by Pamela Geller in Human Events, July 5:
I anxiously looked forward to the release of Andrew McCarthy’s new book, The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America, for several reasons. It was long overdue that a respected thinker, a senior fellow at National Review Institute and former prosecutor of the most heinous Muslim terrorists would address what Robert Spencer so brilliantly warned us of in his seminal work, Stealth Jihad.
Spencer is considered one of the world’s leading scholars on Islam and his take on the topic is from Islamic text. Andrew McCarthy, one the other hand, came to the subject matter from a court room.
McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, got the “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman locked up for his role masterminding the first World Trade Center jihad attack in 1993. And so respected was McCarthy by that killer, he referred to him as “Sheikh Andy.”
So when a man of McCarthy’s stature warns of the “grand jihad” or as Spencer coined it “the stealth jihad,” you can be sure the nation is in trouble. […]
The Grand Jihad covers a lot of the same ground that was covered by Islamic scholar Robert Spencer in his 2008 book Stealth Jihad. Spencer deserves props for being the first to examine in detail the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals in the United States, and the many ways their stealth jihad is advancing here. Spencer’s book reveals the Brotherhood’s activities in depth, as well as the international war on free speech that is being pursued by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).
McCarthy deserves kudos for confirming Spencer’s research, and furthering and updating it with vital information about the complicity of the Obama Administration in these efforts. Too few people know what the Muslim Brotherhood is doing in the United States, and fewer still realize just how thoroughly anti-American Obama really is and how that shows through in his policies. That makes The Grand Jihad one of the most important books of the year.
During our interview, McCarthy asked me: “You remember the CIA photographs they were going to release, the prisoner abuse photos? People rose up, they got angry about it. There was a lot of political backlash. And what happened? He reversed himself. So it’s not hopeless…It’s our courthouse, it’s our government and they get to serve it for a while, and I think that we should speak to them and let them know what we want.”
We don’t want the grand jihad advancing in America. We don’t want any more U.S. Presidents bowing to Islamic kings. Get Spencer’s Stealth Jihad and McCarthy’s Grand Jihad, and educate yourself–before it’s too late.
