Militant Islam Reaches America
Long before September 11, 2001, Daniel Pipes publicly warned Americans that militant Islam had declared war on America. Yet sadly, Americans failed to take heed. The publication of Militant Islam Reaches America, the product of over thirty years of research, helped bring the deserved attention to his ideas. Dividing his work into two subjects, Pipes first defines militant Islam, stressing the large and crucial difference between Islam the faith and the ideology of militant Islam. He then discusses Islam in the United States, and how this once distant religion has developed rapidly in the last decade. Among his findings: militant Islam has much in common with fascism and communism; about one in every eight Muslims worldwide supports militant Islam; and militant Islam is not spawned by poverty. With a new chapter (on how professors hide the meaning of jihad), plus a new afterword (about the war in Iraq), the paperback edition of Militant Islam Reaches America enhances what is already widely recognized as an incisive and definitive examination of Islam in politics.
