Descriptions du produit

Years have passed since 7/7. Alarmingly, however, even under Cameron Britain still continues to fan the radicalisation of its society. Britain's pretending to be tough on terrorism, as it continues to look the other way. This refusal to act goes back two decades, when a hub for terror throughout Europe and elsewhere was allowed access to British soil - Londonistan. In "Londonistan", Melanie Phillips interviews key politicians, moderate Muslims, academics and intelligence experts. She uncovers a persistent state of denial by the establishment entrusted with our security, both on the left and right. Hers is an acclaimed and gripping account of the failure of the way in which Britain is handling terrorism, and its own social crises.

A warning for us all 31 août 2006
Par Bill Muehlenberg - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a very important book. It is also a very frightening book. Its thesis is that Britain has largely created a culture which breeds Islamic terrorism. British authorities have certainly done very little to discourage it, and in many ways have actually aided and abetted home-grown terrorism.

Indeed, "London has become the epicentre of Islamic militancy in Europe". That is, it has "become the major European centre for the promotion, recruitment and financing of Islamic terror and extremism".

This book examines how and why this has happened. Two broad reasons are given: First, Britain no longer believes in itself, no longer cherishes its founding values, and no longer thinks it has a role to play in the world.

Second, British authorities have seriously misjudged the threat of Islamic terrorism. Therefore Britain is engaged in a policy of denial, appeasement, blaming itself, and hiding its head in the sand. These two major factors have led to London becoming the "hub of European terror networks".

Says Phillips, "Britain is currently locked into such a spiral of decadence, self-loathing and sentimentality that it is incapable of seeing that it is setting itself up for a cultural immolation." A nation that helped give the world such values as freedom, democracy and rule of law is now in the process of routing those very values.

In this volume well-documented chapters provide the evidence for this alarming situation. Phillips examines numerous factors that have contributed to the demoralisation of England. Large numbers of Muslim migrants, multiculturalism, rampant anti-Americanism, secularisation, the victim culture, and postcolonial guilt have all led to a loss of national self-belief. The Judeo-Christian heritage has largely been scuttled.

Coupled with this national social suicide is the inability of British authorities to comprehend Islamic extremism, and how it flourishes in such an environment. Even after 9/11, they have largely failed to appreciate the threat that is among them. Indeed, al Qaeda was actually formed as a movement in Britain. Yet the leadership and intelligentsia of the nation refuse to acknowledge that what they are up against is a religious ideology.

The ideology of holy war will not be appeased by turning Muslim immigrants into clients of the welfare state. In spite of tax-payer subsidised housing, health care and other social benefits, Muslim communities in Britain remain enclaves. Assimilation has been eschewed, while the maintenance of a separate identity, culture and lifestyle has been pursued.

British values have been rejected, and many Muslims seek to implement Sharia law across the land. While perhaps most Muslims just want a peaceful life in a peaceful country, Islamists in Britain are quite specific about their goal: turning it into a Muslim nation.

Phillips has very incisive chapters on some of the main culprits: the rights industry, multiculturalism, unchecked anti-Semitism, etc. Consider what she calls the human rights jihad. By denigrating the host nation, and granting every conceivable right to immigrants who often despise the British way of life, the rights ideology has contributed to the hollowing out of British society and has created conditions which breed Islamist extremism.

Commonsense security measure and anti-terrorism laws have been dismantled, weakened, or prevented from proceeding in the name of human rights. In the hope of not offending the Muslim minority, Muslim groups are treated with kid gloves, even as victims, and fear of Islamophobia has become the main obsession amongst Britain's' elite.

Phillips documents how the rise of judicial activism and the human rights culture has led to a diminution of British sovereignty, a self-loathing of British values and the collapse of national security. And concepts such as multiculturalism have simply compounded the problems. The reigning British thinking now is that all cultures and values are equal, and any attempt to impose the majority (host) culture and its values on the minorities is inherently `racist'.

Assimilation has been renounced as chauvinistic, racist and oppressive. The education system, for example, teaches the value and worth of all non-Western cultures, while the achievements of the West are ignored or ridiculed.

Anti-Semitism is indeed a big factor in all this, argues Phillips. The British have in the main swallowed the Arab/Muslim propaganda concerning Israel and the Jews. Instead of seeing Israel as the sole democracy in a part of the world filled with dictatorships and oppression, and the front line of defense in the war against the West, Israel is viewed as the enemy, the cause of the world's ills.

Taken together, the effect of all this has been to "create a climate in Britain that has alarming echoes of Weimar in the 1930s. There is the same combination of amorality and appeasement, of decadence and denial."

At bottom Britain in particular and the West in general are in a war against a fanatical religious ideology. The Islamist terrorists have a non-negotiable agenda: the destruction of Israel, America and the West. Until Britain and the West acknowledge and understand the ideological basis of the terrorism they face, they will never be able to successfully challenge it.

Religious extremism cannot be ignored, denied or appeased. It must be confronted. But an anaemic Britain which has abandoned it heritage and embraced its enemies is in no condition to fight. Fear of Islamophobia and a loss of belief in itself has paralysed Britain, preventing it from taking the sensible and necessary steps to defend itself.

Phillips concludes by offering some practical steps as to how Britain can turn things around. It is a nation at the crossroads. It can learn from its mistakes, regroup, and move on. Or is can continue down the past of appeasement and denial, and simply wither on the vine. A choice must be made, and a book like this helps us all to decide which way we will proceed.

Londistan capitol of Eurabia 23 mai 2006
Par Shalom Freedman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Author and journalist Melanie Phillips has written a searing exposure of the British political and educational establishment. In it she shows how a policy of appeasement has led to the growth of radical Islam within Great Britain itself. Her argument is that the Society as a whole has gone through a transformation of values in which the British deny their own national identity and traditional values and support a kind of multiculturalism which has fostered through benign neglect the growth of a kind of autonomous Islamic world within Britain.

Phillips has written in the past on the educational and moral crisis of British Society, and her knowledge of British social structures is strong. She also provides historical background and traces the whole policy of appeasement as it has intensified through the years.

This book is a warning cry like those of Baat- Yeor, Claire Berlinski, Bruce Bawer, Oriana Fallaci against the danger of an Islamic takeover of Europe. It is an effort to wake British society from its present slumber, and reenergize to defense of its own identity and culture.

Dispatches From A Dying Nation 24 août 2006
Par SusScrofa - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a young man I marched with the Anti-Nazi League in late 1970's England in opposition to organizations such as the National Front. Decades later and viewing my homeland from America it is quite apparent to me that a new plague of Nazis festers in Britain. These ones are Islamic, homicidal and they are gaining momentum with each passing day.
Phillips' book is a grim tale of a nation flushing its native culture, its past and its future down the toilet in an orgy of appeasement and supplicate apology towards a community segment that celebrates its destruction.
Many indigenous Britons neutered by white guilt and a steady diet of Neo-Liberalism in the popular culture persistently refuse to acknowledge the threat of Islam and many of its practitioners. British Muslim leaders and police officials assure them that Islamic terrorists are not real Muslims and that it is Islamophobic to say otherwise. It's the religion of peace after all right? Phillips points out how their ire is misdirected towards America, Israel and even Britain itself while home-grown Jihadis plan their next atrocity.
The nightmare that is Islamonazism was borne out of British officialdom's decades-long ostrich head in the sand approach to immigration, asylum and Muslim extremism. This impotent policy can now be measured: A quarter of the UK's Muslims consider the scum that committed the 7/7 massacre to be martyrs (two thirds feel this way for Muslims under 25).
I don't fully side with the author on several levels however. A revival of Christianity will not turn the tide nor will it necessarily encourage civility and decency. Americans regularly attend church in vast percentages, yet the US is addled with most of the same social ills, crimes and decadence that Phillips decries. She appears keen to present Britain, America and Israel as a type of triumvirate bulwark in the fight against global terrorism. I reject this notion. Though clearly detested by most Muslims Israel's border skirmishes and civil war with the Palestinians are essentially a localized issue, marginally connected to the efforts to crush international Islamo-fascism
Melanie Phillips conclusions in the book on what must be done are somewhat tepid in my opinion. She does not call for, as I would, the removal from Britain's shores those who champion sedition and slaughter...and that's an awfully large number of Muslims as the book makes clear. I do not believe there will ever be general assimilation amongst those who view the Koran as the law and the infidel as eternal enemy and it is therefore imperative that they be firmly encouraged to relocate to Islamic nations. An extremist ideology requires extreme measures to counteract it. Until or unless that happens the madhouse that is Londonistan can only become more lunatic.
Addendum: This review was posted for several days on the uk Amazon site before being pulled. When I enquired why, I received this response: "Please know that is a retail site and we are happy to post legitimate book reviews that meet our guidelines. All customer reviews submitted are subject to posting at our discretion and all decisions are final." Which is exactly the type of censorship taking place in Britain against those who are deemed to have offended Muslims that Londonistan cataloges.

An outstanding analysis of the radical Islamic threat 14 septembre 2006
Par Jerry Saperstein - Publié sur
Format: Relié
There have been a spate of books recently about Islam in Europe. "While Europe Slept", "Menace In Europe" and now "Londistan" by Melanie Phillips. Of the three, this is by far the best. Not that the other two titles are lacking anything. But where Melanie Phillips provides astoundingly extensive and documented evidence of the nature of radical Islam's pernicious invasion of British society, the other two titles are more anecdotal.

This is not a book to be skimmed. Phillips crams every chapter with one frightening fact after another. In "The Security Debacle", she examines how the British security establishment was caught unprepared for the radicalization of native born British boys who went on to explode bombs in London subways and buses. She goes on to detail how bureaucratic inertia, plain stupidity and multiculturalism blinded law enforcement and security agents to the threat growing before their very own blind eyes.

Some of her strongest criticism comes in the chapter titled "The Multicultural Paralysis". The Prince of Wales (Prince Charles) comes in for especial criticism because of his apparently strange views about Islam. The Prince claims, for example, that Islam is a solution to the problems of the "spiritual pcoery of the West". Phillips wryly notes that the late Princess Diana would have faced the death penalty under Sharia law for adultery. She goes on to recite examples of the see-no-evil multiculturalism that rules Britain and prevents effective response to radical Islam.

Each of Phillips' chapters would serve as a stand-alone essay on the dangers of radical Islam and how Britain is failing to counter it in any meaningful way. This is not a happy book. It is a frightening book to anyone concerned with survival of Western culture and indeed the survival of the West.

It may not be pleasant, but it is virtually a required read for every concerned citizen. It's happening in Britain and France and it can happen in the United States.

The UK is unwell and very vulnerable 19 décembre 2006
Par Peter Uys - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Since 2001 a number of authors have been warning the West of the twin perils of civilizational suicide and Islamic extremism. These books include America Alone by Mark Steyn, Menace In Europe by Claire Berlinski, While Europe Slept by Bruce Bawer, The Force Of Reason by the late Oriana Fallaci and this one from the epicentre of the Jihad in Europe.

Londonistan examines the state of the UK today from a political and cultural angle. It chronicles the almost unnoticed surrender of Britain's values as it is faced with a radical fifth column in its midst. Phillips shows how the prevailing mood in the UK today is similar to the 1930s and demonstrates how multiculturalism, relativism, political correctness and the spirit of appeasement are crippling the once proud nation.

The author backs up her claims with verifiable facts as she unmasks prominent personalities considered to be mainstream, like Iqbal Sacranie, secretary general of the Muslim Council of the UK. Propaganda from these sources has been granted legitimacy by the establishment. Even the British police suffer from the disease of political correctness while society in general does not want to know that a civilizational struggle is looming.

Having encouraged the notion of victim culture, the British state is partly responsible for the moral inversion that takes place after acts of terrorism. The communities from which it emanates immediately claim victim status. Even more disconcerting is the fact that Leftists have rallied to the Islamist cause. The author calls this the red-black alliance, and it is also thoroughly explored, in the US context, in the book Unholy Alliance by David Horowitz. Thus the British media and intellectual elites, in a pathological display of denial, blame the victims Israel and the USA for the very existence of Islamic terrorism.

Anti-Semitism in the Muslim world is ignored whilst the Left itself is becoming bolder in embracing this mental virus. The distinction between criticism of Israeli actions and blatant anti-Semitism is becoming blurry, with many a line having been crossed in the leftist media. Propagandistic reporting from the Middle East is increasing and whilst some of it has been exposed by intrepid bloggers, the attitude has become entrenched in media like for example the BBC, The Guardian and The Independent.

The author proposes some remedies for the dangerous state the UK finds itself in, like stricter immigration controls, monitoring of clerics and organizations that propagate extremism, and the abandonment of multiculturalism for a return to British culture. Time will tell if the UK has the guts to meet the challenges but no one will be able to say that the country hasn't been warned. The same goes for the West as a whole: Phillips is one of many voices raising the alarm. One can only pray that the warnings will be heeded. The hour is late for deaf ears too.
