Leave it to the politicians, scholars and business interests of Europe to show the ultimate in cowardice and greed. Fear of terrorism and the loss of oil imports and export markets prompted the ultimate infiltration of Europe with hate-filled, criminal and Jihadist elements, all under cover of a misguided immigration agreement and the diminishment of Western European culture. I know common Europeans are taking matters into their own hands since their politicians are determined to sell them out at any cost. Before Americans become too smug, they should look for similar patterns in our own country. This book has much to teach.

The reader is provided with an excellent, well written, presentation which investigates how the European Union has allegedly become overtly anti-American and anti-Israel. Particular emphasis being placed on what is cited as the subversion of the European Union through Islamic hostility, towards what is described as the 'Islamization' of the continent. Attention being drawn to the EU's perceived `need' of the Arab bloc of nations in order that the EU can 'establish itself as a strategic rival to America'. The reader is presented with a succession of international agreements revealing an inferred European agreement to support the Arab/Islamic world's political aims ¿ particularly its anti-Israel stance - in exchange for favoured treatment in Arab/Islamic world markets. Indeed, whilst a plethora of related subjects are dealt with, perhaps the core issue revolves around policies, attitudes and politics pertaining to the Arab/Palestinian - Israeli issue. The book discusses how the EU has made Israel the `cornerstone' of it's relations with the Arab world and the US - and even matters pertaining to the continent's own security. What is adjudged in this work to be the resulting 'Euro-Arab Judeophobia' is alleged to have permeated virtually all levels of West European society. Many questions are asked from the outset, that investigate such issues as the decision of the European Union to propose a constitution that renounces and denies it's Judeo-Christian roots. Not least of the issues dealt with is how the EU's perceived relations with the Arab/Islamic world have allegedly permitted the `dismissal' of what is described as a 'voluminous historical record of violations' to enable the EU to engagement in fruitful business and diplomatic ventures with what are termed 'dictatorial regimes'. The book in essence discusses what is described as a creeping `Islamicization' of a 'decadent European Christendom', where there is cited to have been a considerable shifting of European attitudes and politics into the Arab-Islamic sphere of influence. Such being purportedly based upon a repeated policy of appeasement, accommodation, and cultural abdication before Islam which has allegedly been embraced with the intention of isolating Israel. EU involvement in the Middle East is discussed in the context of how there appears to follow a 'well established pattern' whereby - to begin with - no interest is purportedly shown in calling on the Palestinian side to refrain from killing Israeli civilians and - secondly - the EU allegedly demonstrates no sympathy for the humanitarian and economic plight of Israeli civilians suffering from terrorism. The EU allegedly, instead, devoting itself to pronouncing extreme concern over the humanitarian situation in the 'West Bank' and Gaza - but not in relation to the plight of the Israelis themselves. (Page 258). Some analysis is also given to the alleged effect that such EU/Arab alliances have had upon the religious realm, under the title of 'Palestinianism', which has allegedly distorted the Biblical/Jewish roots of Scripture into a perceived 'moral justification' for the elimination of the State of Israel. (Chapter 14). A political and religious framework being demonstrated that allegedly 'demonizes' the Jews and discredits/undermines the Jewish roots of Christianity. Such pertinent issues being discussed are the place of 'Palestinian Liberation Theology' & 'Replacement Theology' within some elements of the professing Church today. Reference also being made as to how Palestinian politics and Christian theology have allegedly become inextricably linked in the Middle East. The effects that such have had upon the prevailing Islamic-Christian-Jewish relations in the region and the West itself are also examined. Many readers will undoubtedly disagree with the views of the writer and find many of these issues to be extremely contentious. However, to each question asked, an analysis
