“What is the main point in the book that you want a reader to take away with him forever?”

“The main point is that the Islamist threat is much broader and more existentially threatening than its component part, the threat from Islamist terrorists. We are facing a movement that is very mainstream in the Muslim world, that sees itself as engaged in a “civilizational” war to destroy the West, and that employs as its main tactic sabotage – the long march through our institutions. The Islamist movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood is aligned with the hard Left because both parties want to destroy our freedom culture – they need to do so in order to impose their respective utopias. We cannot defend ourselves unless we recognize what is happening.”
