In his arguable and seriously acclaimed While Europe Slept, Bruce Bawer defined the risk that Islamic immigration posed to conventional eu values. during this provocative follow-up, he's taking up the West's fresh pattern of silence and appeasement within the face of cultural intimidation through radical Islam.

From an exam of insurance of the stunning homicide of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh to the frequent denunciation of the Danish editors who released editorial cartoons mocking Mohammed, Bawer exhibits how radical Islam has cowed Western media, politicians, intellectuals, and spiritual leaders into believing that we needs to surrender the precise of unfastened expression to peacefully coexist with the Muslim international.
