Stealth Jihad


Stealth Jihad

The following quotes are taken from Robert Spencer’s 2008 book, entitled “Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America Without Guns or Bombs”. The book is published by Regnery Publishing Inc.

The following several paragraphs are quoted from the Introduction of Spencer’s book. His words should motivate responsible citizens and voters to learn more about the possibility that Stealth Jihad could, along with many other contemporary forces, destroy America as we know it.

Begin quote:

In this book, I offer evidence for the proposition that terror attacks involving bombings and shootings are not the sum total of terrorist aspirations, but are just one component of a larger initiative. The goal of that initiative is the imposition of jihadists’ ideology all over the world—over their fellow Muslims and non-Muslims alike. That ideology may be summed up by the phrase “radical Islam,” although that term is used in many different ways. Some use it to suggest that it is only radicals—those who distort those teachings into “radical Islam”—who are responsible for violence in Islam’s name.

I am not using the phrase in that way. Rather, I have long contended that Islam is unique among the major world religions in having a developed doctrine, theology, and legal system mandating warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers. There is no orthodox sect or school of Islam that teachers that Muslims must coexist peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis.  I use the term “radical Islam” merely to distinguish those Muslims who are actively working to advance this subjugation from the many millions who are not, as well as to emphasize that the stealth jihad program is truly radical: it aims at nothing less than the transformation of American society and the imposition of Islamic law here, subjugating women and non-Muslims to the status of legal inferiors.

Those who are working to advance the subjugation of non-Muslims are not doing it soly by violent means. The common distinction between “radical” and “moderate” Muslims has generally been made between those who are engaged in blowing things up or are plotting to do so, and those who are not. However, the evidence presented in this book shows that the distinction ought to be placed elsewhere: Between those Muslims who believe that Islamic law is the perfect system for human society and who are working by whatever means to impose that Islamic law, and those Muslims who support Western pluralistic governments and seek to live with non-Muslims as equals, under secular rule, on an indefinite basis (pps. 4, 5 & 6).

Next quote:

The West today faces the threat of stealth jihadists. By using this term, I am not implying that they operate in secret; to the contrary, one of the key characteristics distinguishing them from their violent counterparts is that they carry out their business openly, carefully constructing a facade of moderation. What is stealth about these operatives is their ultimate agenda—they are not seeking to protect Muslim’s “civil rights” from the rampant “Islamophobia” that ostensibly plagues Western societies, as they claim. Rather, they are leading a full-scale effort to transform pluralistic societies into Ilsamic states, and to sweep away Western notions of legal equality, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and more.

The stealth jihadists have already made significant inroads into American life. They are well-funded, well-organized, and persistent. They will not be pacified by negotiations, compromises, or concessions; they cannot be bought off. And every day, they are advancing their agenda—while most Americans don’t even know they exist.

In his controversial book “America Alone”, Mark Steyn suggests that:

Europe is falling to the Islamic Jihad, and that only America will be left as a bulwark against Islamization. But it is unclear how much of a bulwark we will be if we allow our freedoms and way of life to be eroded in the name of “getting along.” That is exactly what is happening today. The stealth jihadists are working energetically to wear away the very fabric of American culture.

Its happening right now , under our noses (pps. 6 & 7)..

    Frank, Thanks for the provocative question. In order to attempt to answer your question I will need some definitions. Robert Spencer has defined “stealth Jihadists” and I put that definition in my post. What are the definitions of a “stealth crusader” and a “non-evangelical Christian”?

    Also, what is the evidence that the stealth crusaders are unwilling to peacefully coexist with non-evangelical Christians?

    In what way are the stealth jihadists any different from the stealth crusaders who are also unwilling to coexist peacefully as equals with non-evangelical Christians on an indefinite basis?
