I will assign two different reviews to this book as it is essentially two books in one. As an autobiography it is very interesting and the Egyptian parts including the visits are priceless. The parts where she becomes an activist in America are priceless if you do not read the blogs in our community.
The amusing part is that the people who really need to read this book are mired in an insular Marxist gulag The point our friendly bird brained poultry makes is that he views the works of Darwash, Pipes and Bat Yeor as political. The Duck seems to miss these points in Fanon, Chimpanzee, Finkelstein and Menchu. A Marxist is an accolyte of glass genocide with a reputation of anti-scholarship that spans decades.
Moreover, the plethora of new Middle Eastern Studies Departments paid for with Saudi and other Foreign money should be viewed with suspicion.
The book points out what most of us are aware of Islam seeks global domination like Communism. However, we should not accept this under the guise of Freedom of religion as global conquest is a political statement. The same rationale was given by Marxist who were working towards the violent over throw of the US government in colaberation with a hostile foreign power. Society used to deal with this under the charge of criminal syndicationalism and we should do so again. The second one talks about Jihad in America one should be in denaturalization proceedings. We should also make the flow of foreign money to US educational and religious institutions illegal. At the minimum people who are the recipients of Saudi money should have to register as agents of a hostile foreign power and be subject to constant scrutiny.
Great Book but one that is not apt to be read by those who need it most.
