9781908096272: Londonistan

Years have passed since 7/7. Alarmingly, however, even under Cameron Britain still continues to fan the radicalisation of its society. Britain's pretending to be tough on terrorism, as it continues to look the other way. This refusal to act goes back two decades, when a hub for terror throughout Europe and elsewhere was allowed access to British soil - Londonistan. In "Londonistan", Melanie Phillips interviews key politicians, moderate Muslims, academics and intelligence experts. She uncovers a persistent state of denial by the establishment entrusted with our security, both on the left and right. Hers is an acclaimed and gripping account of the failure of the way in which Britain is handling terrorism, and its own social crises.

From the Publisher:

In this groundbreaking study, Melanie Phillips shows how Britain’s imperial policy of "benign neglect" towards radical Islamist groups in the 1980s and 1990s came close to malign complicity in the activities of some of the most determined terrorist organizations ever to emerge in Europe.

—Amir Taheri, author of Holy Terror and other books

"In contrast to the overwhelming majority of her British compatriots, who prefer to avert their eyes from the radical Islamic horror growing in their midst, Melanie Phillips has compiled a unique record that fearlessly, brilliantly and wittily exposes this problem. Londonistan builds on and goes beyond her prior work by showing the role of what she calls the British ‘spiral of decadence’ in permitting Islamist ideas and demands to ride roughshod over the UK’s traditional ways. Phillips rightly warns Americans of the acute dangers for them, too, from Britain’s being a source of Richard Reid–like terrorists to the ending of the two countries’ special relationship."

—Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum and author of Militant Islam Reaches America

"Londonistan is one of the most compelling books you will ever read on the ascendancy of Islamic fundamentalism, violence and intimidation in the West. Melanie Phillips exposes the scandalous appeasement of militant Islam by British officials, the media, even the Church of England, capturing in extraordinary detail how British society and institutions have either ignored or actively fostered the growth of extremist groups on British soil. This book will both enlighten and enrage. Although its story is focused on the United Kingdom, it could be applied to any European capital or to the United States."

—Steven Emerson, executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism and author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us
