The author gave facts - names, places, and dates - to what I had already thought ... That jihad was flourishing in America.

His inquiry as to why this is happening is not very clear, however. Nor is there much to address about how to change this situation. Maybe it is all as simple as the fundamentalist Muslims hate the modernity and economic strength of the US and its' allies.

Muslims who enjoy the wealth, opportunities and progress of the West do not speak out against the radicals of their faith. Perhaps they are afraid, they want to keep themselves safe and quietly prosper.

The book was interesting much in the way an Almanac is. Bits and pieces here and there that pique your interests. For a more detailed answers go to the Bibliography at the end.

Though mostly history now, this book was an eye-opener and really makes me wonder what was going on in the shadows during the Obamination.

Great investigative journalism. Quite surprising how open the "Jihadists" he met were. And the info he presents is really shocking.

People need to read more of this kind of thing. The media lies.

Great Book and fast service. Thanks!
I'd like to think that a book like this would help Americans wake up, but I'm not that naive.
Emerson seems to have spent much time investigating the radical Islamic movement in America, and their links to terrorism. I applaud his research. Facts like these need to get out.
One comment he made troubled me, however: he stated that he was wrong when he initially connected the Oklahoma City bombing with Middle-Eastern terrorists. Maybe he was unaware of the Iraqi connections at the time of publication--I hope he has learned of this since. (It's clear now how the OKC bombing fit exactly into the scheme that he himself has unraveled, and included several of the same players involved in other terrorist plots.)
Most of Emerson's book tracks the flow of money and associations of the terrorists and terrorist sympathizers. He doesn't discuss a lot of the philosophical issues--I guess that could be another book in itself.
Emerson reveals how the international terrorist organizations have used America and her freedoms to fuel their hate crimes against America herself, and many others overseas. He shows how the radical Islamic movement has hijacked the more moderate, peaceful Muslim groups, and has almost completely drowned out their voices.
Unfortunately, this book doesn't have a happy ending. I hope real life turns out differently. But given the pluralistic, politically-correct quagmire our society has become encumbered in, I'm afraid that may not be the case.
