Stephen K. Bannon, former Trump Administration Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor, said in 2016 that I was “one of the top two or three experts in the world on this great war…against fundamental Islam.”
Now, in my new book Confessions of an Islamophobe (pre-order here), I tell the story of how and why anyone would want to become such a thing. Both Steve Bannon and I, of course, have been relentlessly vilified as “Islamophobes” for calling attention to and attempting to deal with the threat of jihad terror. The establishment media and many people in the government swamp insist that Islam is a religion of peace, and that jihad terror is the province only of a few “extremists,” of the type that can be and are found in any religious tradition. Indeed, that is the majority view among Americans who have been regularly admonished to shun “Islamophobia” since 9/11 and before.
So are Bannon and I hate-filled kooks, or are we on to something? In Confessions of an Islamophobe, I make the case that there are numerous reasons to be concerned about Islam, and set out the evidence.
Do I prove the case? You be the judge. Pre-order Confessions of an Islamophobe here now.
