Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War

I saw this comment from the author of Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War at Jihad Watch.

Is Islam radical or not?

This is from my forthcoming book, scheduled for release in a week:

“61 percent of the Koran either talks ills of unbelievers or calls for their violent conquest and subjugation, but only 2.6 percent of it talks about the overall good of humanity.”

These statistics tell us that at the fundamental level Islam is radical and the overwhelming nature of the above statistics implies that the extent of radicalism in Islam is beyond interpretation.

His name is Moorthy S. Muthuswamy and his book has earned high praise from Robert Spencer,

“Here is a thorough and provocative discussion of the threat of the global jihad and Islamic supremacism in all its dimensions. Moorthy Muthuswamy deserves our gratitude for presenting a solidly argued exposition of what must be done in order to fight, and win, this conflict on ideological and political grounds, defending human rights and religious freedom from the threat posed to them by the jihadists. We can only hope that our political leaders and those of all the nations that are threatened by the jihad will heed his wise counsel before it is too late.”

Geert Wilders,

“In his book Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War Moorthy Muthuswamy gives an excellent analysis of the threat the Islamic ideology poses to the West….With this book, Muthuswamy not only identifies and analyzes the problem civilized democracies face with Islam, but he also aims to give possible ways to deal with it as well. This book is a must-read for everyone and an eye-opener for those who are not yet aware of the threat Islam poses to our Western civilization.”

and Andrew Bostom.

“Muthuswamy’s lucid analysis identifies the axis of global jihadism – Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. His succinct discussion further elaborates a practical geopolitical strategy to thwart their odious political Islamic agenda. This thoughtful and frank book should be read by all concerned with preservation of free democratic societies threatened by a resurgent onslaught of totalitarian jihad.”

Here’s a synopsis.

Al Qaeda and its sympathizers are often viewed as isolated fanatics outside of the mainstream Muslim population—outlaws not only in the West but also in respectable Muslim nations. This book argues just the opposite: that in fact terrorism is the logical outgrowth of an international Islamic political agenda that is endorsed and funded by Islam’s major players—Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Pakistan. Author Moorthy S. Muthuswamy labels these nations the “Axis of Jihad”. For decades, he says, they have been devoted to extending their spheres of influence in the name of religion.
  
DefeatingPolIslam Utilizing a recent groundbreaking statistical analysis of Islamic doctrines and an analysis based upon the outlook of Muslims, he discusses the possibility that Islam is less a religion and more an ideology of conquest.

Muthuswamy urges US policymakers to rethink the War on Terror along the lines of the successfully waged Cold War against communism. The nuclear physicist-author makes the following main point:

Like the Cold War, this war is more a contest of ideas than armed conflict. Rather than placing the emphasis on military might and costly wars abroad, the West should invest the bulk of its effort in a science-based ideological war, one that is directed at discrediting the simplistic, conquest-oriented theological roots of Islamist indoctrination and jihadist politics.

Muthuswamy also emphasizes the importance of a largely non-Muslim India in the War on Terror, in view of its location and size. The India-born author gives a fascinating description of modern Islamic conquest in South Asia. His insights into the Islamist siege and subversion of Indian democracy should be revealing for the citizens of western democracies.

The author asserts that the West needs India in dealing with the conundrum that is Pakistan, as they both share language, culture, and more with each other.

This fresh perspective on the ongoing threat from Islamist terrorism offers much to ponder about the future course of US foreign policy initiatives.

It looks very promising.
