Militant Islam Reaches America

by

Militant Islam Reaches America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most far-reaching examinations of militant Islam written to date. Long before September 11, Daniel Pipes publicly warned Americans that militant Islam had gone to war against America. Drawing on his thirty years of intensive research on Islam, he shows the vital distinction between the faith of Islam and the ideology of militant Islam. Among his findings: militant Islam has much in common with fascism and communism; about one in every eight Muslims worldwide supports militant Islam; 70,000 Al-Qaeda accomplices remain at large in over fifty countries; Michael Jackson and Madonna are, in the eyes of militant Islam, "cultural terrorists" who should be brought to trial; militant Islamic groups have raised $1.3 million for the defense of indicted murder suspect Jamil Al-Amin (formerly H. Rap Brown). Militant Islam Reaches America is one of the important and readable books about the grave issues that now confront America.

Book News Annotation:

Pipes has a history at prestigious US universities and with the departments of State and Defense, and now directs the Middle East Forum in Philadelphia. Here he collects, updates, and systemizes 23 previous published essays that examine militant Islam in general and its manifestation in the US.
