An excellent Jerry Gordon review of the new book by Bat Ye’or at New English Review.
Europe has lost its bet. A hostage to hatred of Israel, it thought it could salvage peace by its surrender to Palestinian terrorism since the late 1960’s. Burnishing the instruments of its own defeat, it has argued that terrorism will not be defeated through the military option, but rather through dialogue, multilateralism and multiculturalism, the main argument of the coming Caliphate.
The Palestinization of Europe has brought the Caliphate into the cities of Europe. . . It has moved forward on gilded carpets in the corridors of dialogue, the networks of the alliances and partnership, the corruption of its leaders, intellectuals and NGOs, particularly at the United Nations. The Caliphate is already alive and growing within Europe. In the extinction of the basic freedoms, control over thought, opinions and culture, subverting democratic laws by Shari’a, fatwas, selfcensorship and fear-inseparable companions of dhimmitude.
