Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left

Overview

David Horowitz confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror in Iraq. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the "Great Satan" with America's radical Islamic enemies. This Left, which once made common cause with Communists, has now joined forces with radical Islam in attacking America's defenses at home and its policies abroad. From their positions of influence in the university and media ...

Overview

David Horowitz confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror in Iraq. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the "Great Satan" with America's radical Islamic enemies. This Left, which once made common cause with Communists, has now joined forces with radical Islam in attacking America's defenses at home and its policies abroad. From their positions of influence in the university and media culture, leftists have defined America as the "root cause" of the attacks against it. In a remarkable exploration of the "Mind of the Left," Horowitz traces the evolution of American radicalism from its Communist past to its "anti-war" present. He then shows how this Left was able to turn the Democratic Party presidential campaign around and reshape its views on the War on Terror.

    Did You Ever See "Team America" World Police"?

    I think Horowitz wrote the book it's based on. While acknowledging that it's important to guard civil liberties in a time of war, Horowitz argues that the far Left's anti-Americanism is so deeply ingrained that they are playing right into the hands, either knowingly or unknowingly, of America's enemies. Horowitz believes that America's capitalist, Christian traditions are so at odds with the Far Left's radical, Marxist agenda that their goals dovetail perfectly with the goals of the Islamo-fascists. "Unholy Alliance" is a shocking book which will make you question the limits of dissent in a time of war. (Be sure to check out my recommendation for "The Peloponnesian War" by Donald Kagan. The historical parallels will surprise you.)

    Read it

    If one wants to see a clear example of how someone can twist facts to their own purposes, this is a clear example. Little if anything in this book is 'real.' A definite read if one wishes to see how things are interpreted if one is severely handicapped by ideology.
