How I Came to Write this Book

Intro to Islam is the result of research I did for a spy novel involving a nuclear terrorist plot that is discovered by a young ex-Muslim who smuggles forbidden books, films, & music into a post-Saudi Arabia.  When I began that project, I knew little about Islam, but had the general impression that it was pretty much the worst-case scenario, in terms of religion's potential to cause mischief & mayhem.  As an avowed religious skeptic, I had no trouble seeing the obvious & compelling evidence suggesting that Muhammad's legacy to mankind is a xenophobic, dysfunctional worldview that promotes hatred, hysteria, & violence, and keeps Islamic societies mired in a state of medieval barbarism.  But I didn't realize just how toxic it really is.  I didn't know why it continued to be such a retrograde influence in the 21st Century.  And I didn't understand how great a threat this ideology poses to the civilized world.  Like most people, I thought that terrorism was what we had to fear from Islam -- unaware that a much greater danger is posed by stealth jihadis and fast-breeding Muslim immigrants to the West, who use political agitation, intimidation, and incessant whining to undermine human rights and basic human freedoms. 

My initial research into the ideology that motivates my story's antagonists alerted me to the fact that things were much worse than I had imagined.  So I dug deeper.  And it seemed the deeper I dug, the scarier it got.  This religion appeared to be a bottomless pit of depravity, savagery, & civilization-imperiling ideas.  At the same time, I became painfully aware that many of my fellow progressives are compounding the problem -- significantly -- by aiding & abetting Islamists in Europe, the U.S., Canada, Australia, Israel, & elsewhere.  Somehow, politically-correct, mainstream liberals have not only failed to see that Islam is actively opposed to every ideal & agenda we're supposed to stand for, they've actually become determined champions of Islam --   continually making excuses for this barbaric ideology, denying its culpability in terrorism and other direct results of Islamic theology, and viciously attacking anyone who dares to criticize it.  It's absolutely surreal!  If I didn't have the scars to prove it (thanks, Daily Kos!), I wouldn't believe that a situation so unlikely, and so profoundly fucked-up, could possibly exist. 

Finally I became so alarmed by this state of affairs, I decided that I had to put aside the novel for a while, to focus on a nonfiction book designed to educate my fellow Lefties on this hostile ideology, by giving an honest, straightforward accounting of the world's fastest-growing, most intrinsically political, & most inherently imperialistic religion.  I realize that telling the PC Police to fuck off, in such a strident & unequivocal fashion, could be hazardous for a writer's relationships with publishers, and with the Islam-friendly suits calling the shots in Hollywood studios.  But prudence was never my strong suit.  And I figured that if Giordano Bruno, the bold 16th Century pantheist & religious skeptic, was willing to be burned at the stake, rather than sell out and kiss the crucifix, I could man up and do this book. 

So here it is -- the first edition rushed into publication as an eBook, because I felt that, in light of recent events, it just couldn't wait any longer.  Perhaps a courageous publisher will step forward to help produce & promote an expanded second edition, so the book can be brought more into the mainstream.  In the meantime, this eBook serves as a flag planted on the field -- a progressive taking a stand in the global War of Ideas -- confronting Islamists and PC liberals alike. 
British liberal Pat Condell gives politically correct appeasers of Islam a good talking-to.
Let's prove them wrong!  Let's do everything in our power to ensure that democracy, liberty, critical thinking, human rights,
and basic human decency will dominate the world -- instead of barbarism, misogyny, ignorance, and superstition.

a celebration of what's at stake, and a grim reminder of what's coming our way.
The Savvy Kafir Community

In the face of widespread, aggressive Islamism, we need to see the rise of a global community of "savvy kafirs".  Infidels who understand Islam and the threat it poses to the civilized world.  Freedom-loving progressives (and right-wingers) who are determined to resist religious fanatics promoting a vision of life straight out of Seventh Century Arabia

Intro to Islam is me doing my bit to help foster & encourage a bold new breed of savvy counter-jihadis.  Left-leaning people who reject the liberal community's hysterical, knee-jerk defense of the world's most ultra-conservative ideology.  Clear-eyed progressives who recognize a hostile ideology when they see it.  Strong, independent people who are able to break away from the herd when they see that the herd is racing towards a precipice. 

Maybe someday the liberal community as a whole will come to its senses regarding Islam.  That day seems a long way off, when you visit liberal venues such as Daily Kos, Salon, Huffington Post, NPR, BBC World News, or The Guardian.  But at some point, the truth regarding the "Religion of Peace" will simply become inescapable, as jihadis around the world engage in more & more shocking acts of savagery, and Muslim immigrants make more & more outrageous demands and create more & more chaos in their adopted countries.  My hope is that this realization won't come too late.     

In the meantime, please do what you can to help spread the word among your fellow progressives.  Use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs, podcasts, comments posted on liberal websites, Letters to the Editor of liberal newspapers, chats by the office watercooler, and any means available to educate your fellow Lefties.  Plugs for Intro to Islam are greatly appreciated!  Please put those Facebook "Like" buttons and "Tweet" buttons to good use!  That's a quick & easy way to make a real difference in the fight to preserve free speech & other progressive values. 

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give, and welcome to the savvy kafir community!

The European Migrant Crisis

November 25th, 2015  The massive flood of Muslims pouring into Europe in recent months has suddenly cast the threat posed by Islam in a dramatic new light.  For Islam-savvy Europeans (and Americans) who are concerned about the future well-being of Western civilization, this is a truly horrifying development.  The terrorist attacks carried out in Paris on November 13th have caused more people to begin questioning the wisdom of allowing hundreds of thousands of Muslim "refugees" to flood Western Europe, as there is no way to sort out Islamic State jihadis and other holy warriors from those simply looking for a better life.  And opening up Europe to these migrants will certainly lead to more & more terrorist attacks, just as the jihadis keep promising.

But, as always, terrorism is just the highly-visible tip of the iceberg.  A much greater threat is that of demographics.  These new Muslim immigrants -- like those that came before them -- will out-breed their non-Muslim neighbors, and bring about the Islamization of Europe much more quickly than anyone expected.  Many True Believers have openly announced their intention to conquer Europe in this manner.  But most Europeans (especially those on the political left) simply aren't listening. 

The behavior of clueless EU bureaucrats, national political "leaders", mainstream "journalists", and (in many cases) the European people themselves, looks absolutely suicidal.  And how do you save people, and their culture, when they seem determined to destroy themselves, as quickly as possible?  The evidence suggesting where this will inevitably lead is there for anyone to see.  But many still refuse to see it, and continue to deny the truth as adamantly as ever.  For many cultural counter-jihadis, I think it's tempting at this point to just call "Game over!" for Europe.  It was nice while it lasted. 

But it's not time to give up on Europe -- no matter how disgusted we might be by the actions of its sheeple.  It's time to get pissed off.  It's time to double-down in our efforts to stop the advancing forces of Islam -- focusing our energy on Europe, where it's most needed.  Time to take a friggin' flamethrower to political correctness, and kill that beast, before it kills us, by the hands of Islam.  We need to awaken our fellow progressives in Europe to the reality of Islam, whether they're ready or not. 

We can't afford to lose Europe.  Not now.  Not ever.  It's just too important. 

If you are a progressive who "gets it" regarding the true nature of Islam and the threat it poses, please do whatever you can to make yourself heard.  And do it NOW!  Use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, podcasts, blogs,etc.  We've got to make it socially acceptable for liberals to talk honestly about Islam, so that the necessary actions can be taken, before it's too late.
