The Islamic Enemy in America

First there was Daniel Pipes’ book, “Militant Islam Reaches America.” Pipes, the premier writer on Islamism, defines their intensions for America. Now comes Paul Sperry’s book, “Infiltration.” He exposes the “covert jihad” that is ignored by the hapless FBI, aided by terrorist apologist groups like CAIR, and even has influence in the White House. The silence of our leaders is not a sly tactical move. Sperry notes:
“But the officials in Washington leading the fight against this enemy still don’t get it. They still don’t understand the enemy’s motivation, or at least won’t talk candidly about it. A virtual taboo exists in official circles about Islam’s role in terrorism. It is treated as if it comes out of the blue, as if there is no religious pattern.”
Read a full review of this book on the Sixth Column. This is yet another must read to add to the core library.
