A cultural jihad with books

Some dhimmis, (those infidels who are not Moslem but succumb to their will)  are helping their Moslem masters celebrate the holy month of Ramadan without even being asked. 

Last week a book publisher told Nancy Kobrin, a psychoanalyst and lecturer on counter—terrorism, that they were withdrawing the publication of her book, The Sheikh's New Clothes, because they were afraid of fundamentalist repercussions, according to Kobrin.

According to Kobrin, Mary Loughrey, a vice president with the book publisher, called to tell her that "because of security reasons they feared for the safety of the staff and themselves."

he said Loughrey mentioned Muslim reaction — including calls for assassination — following Pope Benedict XVI's recent speech as part of the reason they were concerned.

And what was in the book that would have triggered Moslem anger?  (Not that it takes much apparently.)

The book, subtitled "The Naked Truth about Islamic Suicide Terrorism," tackles the psychology of fundamentalist Islamic terrorists and tries to understand the roots of their radical behavior. 

Kobrin said, "I think it's sort of the third rail to look at Muslim violence as coming from the family."

"People are very uncomfortable with it," she said. In the book, Kobrin asserts that both family dynamics and the degradation of women in Muslim society, among other causes, have influenced the radical behavior of Muslim extremists.

Ironically the publisher,Looseleaf Law Publications, " specializes in law—enforcement and criminal justice titles for professional readers."

Noted psychologist and feminist Phyllis Chesler, who wrote the book's introduction and who has also had her troubles with Moslems after describing their society, refers to this as yet another example Moslem "cultural jihad," warning

If the Western world continues to give into and appease violence of jihadists, if we're afraid of violence against us for speaking the truth, then we're lost.

Thank goodness our country is not totally lost, not all  Americans have become dhimmis;   once the cancellation became known through some news organizations and blogs, two other publishers have expressed an interest in the manuscript.
