Synopsis: The Islamization of Europe is not just a matter of demography, but also a well-planned and masterfully executed Jihadist strategy. Both the United States and Russia are on the Islamist agenda, making it crucial for all nations to understand and address the grave implications of radical Islam. In The Dark Side of the Crescent Moon, Gounev provides readers with a detailed assessment of the people, countries, and global movements that factor into Islam?s growing threat, and its intended impacts, making it a required reading for anyone seeking a firm grasp on this all-important subject. Offering a comprehensive, incisive analysis, Gounev looks at the complex issues surrounding radical Islam from multiple perspectives, taking into account the divergent interests and shifting alignments of the super powers, Muslim states, and the religious leaders who directly influence Islamic dogma. In doing so, he assesses the underlying issues and tackles both current scholarship and conventional wisdom, surveying historical antecedents and modern-day geopolitics to reveal the true intent of radical Islamists. From the evolution and history of radical Islam to the role of the United States and Russia, the author lays out the factors contributing to this current global phenomenon. From Chechnya and Kosovo, to Sudan and Somalia, to Afghanistan and Iraq, Gounev explores the motivations that lurk beneath the surface of active conflict, while extending the threat to the shores of England, Russia, and even the United States, illuminating the vast network that is actively transmitting the political thought and religious dogma of radical Islam. Casting a cold eye on both the theocratic fundamentalism emanating out of Iran and Saudi Arabia, Gounev has sounded an alarm for us to reconsider our values and to reshape our objectives as we stand before a threat that is prepared to manifest itself without warning both outside and inside our borders.
