While Europe Slept
How Radical Islam Is Destroying the West From WithinBook - 2006
An American living in Europe reports on the failure of European liberals to confront Islamic extremism in their own countries. Traveling and talking with people in trains, cafés, restaurants, and on street corners, Bawer came face-to-face with the mix of moralistic smugness and ignorance that feeds the rising tide of hatred toward the United States. He found, as well, a widespread refusal to grapple with problems caused by a growing Muslim presence in Europe--from the violation of immigration laws to honor killings and acts of terrorism, including the assassination of a prominent Dutch politician and the 2003 bombing in Madrid. Bawer warns that Europe can no longer ignore the clash of civilizations raging on its own territory. Failure to recognize the problems and react quickly, he predicts, will lead to a virulent right-wing nationalism of a kind not seen since the 1930s.--From publisher description.
