I anxiously looked forward to the release of Andrew McCarthy's new book, The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America, for several reasons. It was long overdue that a respected thinker, a senior fellow at National Review Institute and former prosecutor of the most heinous Muslim terrorists would address what Robert Spencer so brilliantly warned us of in his seminal work, Stealth Jihad.
Spencer is considered one of the world's leading scholars on Islam and his take on the topic is from Islamic text. Andrew McCarthy, one the other hand, came to the subject matter from a court room.
McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, got the "Blind Sheikh" Omar Abdel-Rahman locked up for his role masterminding the first World Trade Center jihad attack in 1993. And so respected was McCarthy by that killer, he referred to him as "Sheikh Andy."
So when a man of McCarthy's stature warns of the "grand jihad" or as Spencer coined it "the stealth jihad," you can be sure the nation is in trouble.
