Overview

The real threat to the United States is not terrorism. The real threat is the sophisticated forces of Islamism, which have collaborated with the American Left not only to undermine U.S. national security, but to shred the fabric of American constitutional democracy—freedom and individual liberty. In The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America, bestselling author Andrew C. McCarthy provides a harrowing account of how the global Islamist movement’s jihad involves far more than terrorist attacks, and how it has found the ideal partner in President Barack Obama, whose Islamist sympathies run deep.

McCarthy is the former federal prosecutor who convicted the notorious “Blind Sheikh” and other jihadists for waging a terrorist war that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In his national bestseller, Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter 2008), he explored government’s conscious avoidance of the terrorist threat, which made the nation vulnerable to mass-murder attacks. In The Grand Jihad, he exposes a more insidious peril: government’s active suppression of the Islamist ideology that unabashedly vows to “conquer America.” With the help of witting and unwitting accomplices in and out of government, Islamism doesn’t merely fuel terrorism but spawns America-hating Islamic enclaves in our midst and gradually foists Islam’s repressive law, sharia, on American life. The revolutionary doctrine has made common cause with an ascendant Left that also seeks radical transformation of our constitutional order. The prognosis for liberty could not be more dire.

Andrew C. McCarthy was a top federal prosecutor involved in some of the most significant cases in recent history. Decorated with the Justice Department’s highest honors, he retired from government in 2003, after helping launch the 9/11 investigation. He is one of America’s most persuasive voices on national security issues and author of the bestseller Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad. Currently, he is a senior fellow at the National Review Institute in Washington, D.C., and a contributing editor at National Review.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Our freedom is under assault as never before. For years, we’ve known about the Left’s campaign to undermine our constitutional liberties and about radical Islam’s campaign to destroy our way of life. What we now see, thanks to Andy McCarthy’s piercing eye and gripping narrative, is that these campaigns work together, seamlessly. The Grand Jihad tells a story America needs to hear.”

- Rush Limbaugh

"Once I opened the first page, I could not put it down. McCarthy has produced an unparalleled masterpiece that every American must read."

- Steven Emerson, Bestselling author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us, and five other books; Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism

"When prosecution rather than war was our means of fighting terrorism, Andy McCarthy was the tip of the spear. Now that we are at war, a new set of challenges besets us (including going back to prosecution as a means of fighting). And, once again, Andy McCarthy is the tip of the spear--in educating and warning us both about the threat from radical Islam and the dangers of our own fecklessness in fighting it. Everything Andy writes is must-reading, and must-heeding."

- William J. Bennett, Washington Fellow, The Claremont Institute; Radio Host

"The threats to our freedom and our security are not separate. For years, statists and Islamists have made common cause in a civilizational war. Their target is our Constitution and the culture of individual liberty that makes America, America. In The Grand Jihad, Andy McCarthy unveils this conspiracy like it’s never been exposed before. This is a clarion call from a fearless fighter for freedom. Read this book and you’ll understand what we’re up against and why we have to stop it."

- Mark R. Levin, author of the Number One Bestseller Liberty & Tyranny; Radio Host

"Do you care about the survival of our country? Then you must read this book. The brilliant, brave, and stalwart Andy McCarthy exposes how our external Islamist enemies join with our internal Alinskyite enemies to destroy all that we hold dear. Every American must understand how the Grand Jihad of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Western civilization-undermining agenda of the Revolutionary Left operate in deadly sync. As McCarthy shows, this sabotage is taking place on our college campuses, in our courts, and with invaluable help from the enablers of the Obama White House. We must not submit."

- Michelle Malkin, author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies

This book is a troubling eye-opener of how blatantly Islamists (he defines and describes them) are infiltrating free countries, including America, and how liberals are enabling them. There is overwhelming evidence of this, and McCarthy documents it very well. His writing style is a little edgy, a touch sarcastic, but I appreciated it since I agreed with him. Be open-minded of the way he phrases his conclusions!

Andrew C. McCarthy uses his prosecutor skills to lay out a convincing argument that Islam and Islamists pose a threat to our way of life and system of government. Helping them along the way is the liberal left and our politically correct government officials. This book is well researched and well documented. While the facts concerning the menace may be painful for some to accept, they are impossible to dispute. Whether you swing to the right, the left or hang around the center of the political spectrum, you should read this book. If you love your country and the fruits you enjoy by being a citizen of this great nation, you need to read this book - NOW. I guarantee it will open your eyes to many disturbing details about Islam, Islamists and the spread of Sharia Law through Jihad. It will also show how our apathy, ignorance and eagerness to appease will be our undoing as it plays into the hands our of enemies who want to defeat us from within.

In american society currently, the liberals (see reviews below) have become so open-minded that their brains have fallen out. Refusing to accept that anyone, anywhere would desire to harm us, they instead choose to live their comfortable lives of ignorance. The truth is not, and never really has been an easy pill to swallow. It is divisive and rough. For those desiring to better understand what's going on, read this book. For those liberals, may you enjoy your time in peace, and good luck when everything you "knew" comes crumbling around you.....

An author who has the backbone to tell the truth about the destructors of this once-great country. The truth of the islam/muslim cult with reference to the imbedded maggots that serve the evils of this vile group of murderous followers. For those of us who were never so gullable as to believe in Obama and his muslim ways nor his muslim agenda we are still on the receiving end of the destruction he has already propagated. This book tells the entire truth of who and what islam/muslim is, how it works, what will be the results and those who are part of the agenda. The author does NOT sugar coat the truth nor does he skirt the facts with mere implications he is clear on ALL points. This should be required reading for all students at all levels. This book should be purchased by all true Americans and Christians and given to everyone. Churches should bring this book into the pulpit for reading and review as an educational tool to protect the Christian religion and the country.

As someone who has lived in the Middle East, I expected the usual pap and sophistry from people unacquainted with life in this volatile and violent area of the world. Academia frequently attempts to explain the root causes of this never ending violence, but this book comes from one well acquainted with life/hatred/attitudes and the political climate that exists throughout the Middle East. This book cuts through the rhetoric, propaganda and politically correct pablum to explain why peace in the Middle East may never be possible. A must read for anyone who truly wants to understand the issues facing the Middle East and AMERICA in the 21st century. Vastly informative, predictive, thrilling, and terrifying. Should be prescribed reading for every American.

As usual liberal reviewers resort to name calling with no facts to back their accuations. As opposed to McCarthys well documented book. A must read for those seeking the truth about islam and the left's real agenda. But only for those who don't have their head buried in the sand or those seeking to pull their head out. (pun intended).
