Andy McCarthy: Exposing the Grand JihadTopics: Political News and commentaries
We pointed to this book in our previous post, but it's important enough that it deserves extra attention.
"The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America" is out today, and as Michelle Malkin suggests, I urge you all to get a copy -- and then share it with all your friends and family.
If you care about the survival of our country, McCarthy's work is must-read. He thoroughly demonstrates how our external Muslim enemies join with out internal Alinskyite enemies to destroy all we hold dear.You'll find a review of McCarthy's book here.
In his latest piece at NRO, McCarthy asks: How long can a people remain a People when its leaders side with its foes?, and writes:
A number of years ago, at some risk to myself and my family, I prosecuted savage jihadists who had made themselves enemies of the United States. I was lauded for doing so by the Clinton administration. Though I disagreed with that administration philosophically, and particularly with its conception of international terrorism as a crime problem, I praised the much-needed overhaul by which it put teeth in our counterterrorism laws. Our disagreement was over the best way to protect the country, not over the imperative that the country be protected. Our debate was the traditional Right-Left debate.Here are some "quick take-aways" from McCarthy's interview with Sean Hannity:
Moreover, as a New York lawyer who made no secret of having conservative views, I was a decided minority, even among my fellow prosecutors. But that only mattered in the occasional, friendly joust over a beer. Day to day, our politics had nothing to do with how we went about our jobs. At the office, I had friends across the ideological spectrum. Most of them were from the political left, but we liked and respected one another. The bond we shared, the sense that we were doing something good for the nation we all loved, was stronger than any ideological divisions.
Why does that matter now? Because, for the first time in our history, we have a president who would be much more comfortable sitting in a room with Bill Ayers than sitting in a room with me. We have a governing class that is too often comfortable with anti-American radicals, with rogue and dysfunctional governments that blame America for their problems, and with Muslim Brotherhood ideologues who abhor individual liberty, capitalism, freedom of conscience, and, in general, Western enlightenment. To this president and his government, I am the problem.
-- Islam is NOT a religion. It is a business, cultural and judicial enterprise with some aspects of spiritualism (just enough to convince the sheeples in this country that Islam deserves the constitutional protection for religious organizations.)The Islamoapologist lamebrain media, the Left, and Islamists will consider this book to be controversial, everyone else in America will consider it essential reading.
-- Islam's stated goal is to take over the world and install Sharia law.
-- Islam does not just allow Muslims to lie to those outside Islam, it requires it. In other words, if they profess they are "peaceful" and do not mean to take over the world, they are lying. The Muslim telling you the lie may not yet have committed any terroristic act, and may not ever. Demand they denounce terrorist acts by radicalized Muslims. See what answer you get.
-- Muslims will tell you they believe in "women's rights" and "freedom." Their idea of "freedom" is much different than ours.
