Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America without Guns or Bombs by Robert Spencer

Does America face a jihadist threat that's even bigger than terrorism?
While our homeland security efforts are focused on preventing terrorist attacks, another jihadist threat is growing right here in America—in plain sight.

In Stealth Jihad, Islam expert and New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer blows the whistle on a long-term plot by Islamic jihadists to undermine the United States. This effort aims not to bring America to its knees through attacks with guns or bombs, but to subvert the country from within—by gradually Islamizing America. The ultimate goal, the stealth jihadists themselves declare, is nothing less than the adoption of Islamic law in the United States.
Describing the disturbing ease with which stealth jihadists have already become ensconced in the American political and media landscapes, Spencer exposes the full modus operandi of the movement as revealed in a stunning document unveiled in a recent terrorism funding trial. In this unsettling book, he explains:

* Which Islamic fundamentalist organization is behind the stealth jihad
* How stealth jihadists have reinvented themselves as mainstream civil rights activists—despite their many past declarations of Islamic supremacism
* How stealth jihadists played a key role in formulating U.S. government guidelines for the War on Terror
* How insistence on "accommodating" Islamic cultural and religious practices in America is part of a calculated strategy to achieve a dangerous larger agenda
* The effort by stealth jihadists to whitewash the teaching of Islam in schools
* What can be done to defeat the stealth jihad and preserve America's liberty

America, Spencer demonstrates, is all but oblivious to a new kind of threat presented by a loosely organized movement whose activists are well funded, highly motivated, and relentless in pursuit of their agenda. This book is a wake-up call for a country so focused on foreign threats that it has left itself vulnerable to a growing danger much closer to home.

What People are Saying About This

Daniel Pipes

"With his signature research, accuracy, and boldness, Robert Spencer has written a pioneering survey of the "stealth jihad" whose ambition and subtlety threaten the continuity of Western civilization."--(Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum and Taube distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University)

Geert Wilders

"Robert Spencer's Stealth Jihad proves that radical Muslims try to subvert America, not only by terror attacks but by a whole range of other tactics. Robert Spencer wrote an indispensable document for all people who want to know the truth about jihad and the Islamic strive to take over the West."--(Geert Wilders, member of Dutch parliament and producer of the short film Fitna)

Andrew C. McCarthy

"Legions of jihadists are determined to advance the cause of a universally dominant Islam-not just by violence, but by encroaching Islamic law and custom through litigation, political correctness, and exploitation of the West's crisis of confidence. In exposing this agenda, no writer has been more fearless, relentless, and effective than Robert Spencer. In Stealth Jihad he unfolds the comprehensive threat as well as it's ever been done."--(Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review legal affairs editor and bestselling author of Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad)

R. James Woolsey

"Robert Spencer makes a solid case that the major threat to our way of life does not come solely from those radical Islamists who embrace violence and terrorism. It also comes from those who do not accept that they must live side-by-side on a basis of equality with those of other faiths in a civil society and who instead work in multiple ways toward obtaining special standing for Islam in our society and, ultimately, toward theocracy. A vital wake-up call of a book."--(R. James Woolsey, former director of Central Intelligence)

Frank Gaffney

"In Stealth Jihad, Robert Spencer has performed an invaluable public service. He has 'connected the dots' on the enemy within, the Fifth Column that the Muslim Brotherhood and its foreign enablers have established in America-and other nations of the West-to advance the seditious program they call Sharia. This book should be required reading for every government official-and everyone else committed to the survival of our country in the face of this ominous threat."--(Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy)

Steven Emerson

"Robert Spencer has written the definitive book on radical jihadists. It's a brilliant and remarkable analysis and exposé of how Western society has succumbed corruptively to intimidation and appeasement and the demands of radical Islam. This book is a MUST READ for anyone wanting to know the truth about radical Islam's threat to the West and to moderate Muslims."--(Steven Emerson, author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living among Us)

John Bolton

"Stealth Jihad puts a provocative hypothesis to the test of empirical reality with forcefulness and clarity. Many will disagree with this-including our likely next president and vice president-but the burden is now on them to disprove this book."--(John Bolton, former U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations)

When I first picked up Stealth Jihad, I was somewhat skeptical. I had for years followed Robert Spencer's website,, yet had not always agreed with his fundamental beliefs in regard to Islam. However, although I still am not certain that Islam is primarily a violent religion as Spencer insists, his exhaustive research in Stealth Jihad illuminates the agendas of those who wish to implement Sharia in America. He exposes the connections between numerous major "moderate" Islamic organizations within America, including CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations, the Muslim Brotherhood, and ISNA (Islamic Society of North Amerca). And shows how each of them has also demonstrated that they are not moderate, as they proclaim themselves to be, but are actually radical. Stealth Jihad is a thoroughly researched and provocative book that should not be missed for anyone interested in maintaining America's integrity.

Is all I can say this book spells out frightening proposals for the future of our country

Robert Spencer has done a fine job of researching the information and presenting it in a very easy to read and understand format. This book should be a wake up call to all Americans that do not believe that Islam has a goal to take over the world and inflict Sharia law on all of us. Islam may be a religion of peace to most of this faith but, unfortunately, it's the extremist few that are ruling this religion and we should be more than concerned. Mr. Spencer puts this issue in context for all those that care for our future.

To be politically Correct America's media hesitates to challenge the uncomfortable truths about Jihad, its roots, history, and what it is doing inside our country today. Schools from elemenntary to university levels grant special priviliges to members of Jihad's tentacle arms. We allow Muslims to sensor our text books while Christians are not allowed. Interfaith Dialogs grant unearned respect. If you respect the truth on how Jihad is converting America as it has much of Europe, this is the best reference I have found available today.

Robert Spencer has written a fascinating book on "stealth" jihad. It shows how Islamists have infiltrated American institutions (military, government and educational) to try to subvert Western civilization...without guns or bombs. Hence, stealth jihad. The Islamists are using the American values of liberty and tolerance to sneak Sharia law in through the back door, thus bringing about the slow Islamization of American society. Readers of this book would also like "Jenna's Flaw," a novel about the death of God, the crumbling of Western civilization, and what modern Westerners can do to stop it.

Having read this book in the presence of today's gruesome rampage of muslim terrorists in the middle east, complete with beheadings, christian genocide, women raped and taken as sex slaves, children beheaded - the whole grisly parade of muslim terrorist organizations and  attacks worldwide - frankly, what's NOT to be believed? Also noteworthy is that Muslim Brotherhood members (6) are in the White House as ' advisers' another in a high position in Homeland Security; the muslim schools and mosques hotbeds of training to hate Jews and Christians -its unquestionable- ANOTHER CRUSADE, NOW!

Here he goes again. This time this ‘author’ leads those unaware about Islam, that Islam is intolerant, violent, and forceful. This is nothing but a soap opera being sung. Factually early Muslims were being threatened and warred against by the Jewish and Pagans, mainly who didn’t want the prophet to be in their way of business, for Makkah was a very important trade route. So, much of the warring actually had nothing to do with religion, it had to do with money. They couldn’t share the area and they wanted their edge on the market. That was the main contention. They wanted Makkah as theirs. It was strategic for world trade routes. As for being a violent, intolerant religion. This is hog wash too. The verses Spencer loves to use and take out of context—were Allah’s inspiration given to the Prophet when the new Muslim Ummah was being physically attacked. The Prophet’s life was endangered and threatened and warring ensued. The Battles Spencer speaks of were real and the Muslim Ummah won because of the inspiration sent them which is graphic and sounds cruel. But, hear this: In no way was Islam spread by the sword. If you want to still believe that hog wash western propaganda go ahead—but explain then why Muslims since then cling to and embrace Islam when everything is against them. There are no swords today and I’ve lived in the Middle East for 20 years and have never known of a single person here have their hands cut off for theft, although I’ve heard many of the so called, ‘maids’ here stealing Saudi jewelry. Africans come here with their hands already cut off, so perhaps in that country they do this form of punishment. But as with all Capital Punishment in Islam, even for murder: the victim’s family has a choice for the murderer’s punishment. They can forgive them and only fine them, or they can have them executed. So, if someone killed one of your loved ones purposely, would you forgive or have them executed. Even in the USA we practice death penalty so I don’t know how Spencer is spouting all of this nonsense and getting away with it. Secondly: the early Muslims levied a tax on non-Muslims who wanted to reside amongst Muslims but who did not want to embrace Islam. So take that truth with you to the bank and ask Spencer to step up to the batting mound. His work is insulting, it is inflammatory, and I wish I had known about him sooner for I would’ve spoken up much earlier. It is generating hate, fear and misinformation.

Stealth Jihad should be a required read by all college students no matter what college/university they attend. And for anyone who loves and believes in America

Sadly, most readers will take at face value the assertions by Spencer. He is little more than a voice for the corrupt version of events we are now experiencing in the so-called 'war on terror'. Regnery Publishing is not reliable for unbiased knowledge. Spencer is a self-proclaimed "jihadi-hunter", not unlike witch-hunters or other forms of persecution. The only outcome from Spencer's reasoning is a retro-grade social policy that would have Americans suspicious of one another. That's exactly what any 'power-elite' would want, and we should not be so easily duped. I'm afraid the existential threat to us is not from angry foreign young Muslims, but our own bad guys who possess the actual capabilities to kill 3,000 people in two massive towers on that sunny Tuesday morning. The evidence is in, 9/11 was an inside's no theory, it's a matter of history. I refer you to the library of books at Truth-Starved for a corrective to the nonsense we are subjected to with books like Stealth Jihad.
