This book is uncomfortable for Americans to read, invested as we are in the ideas of freedom of religion and freedom from religion, which when taken together provide a reasonable degree of separation of Religion and the State. Western democracies also have the right of free speech, and are generally in favor of the acceptance of new immigrants. None of those values are acceptable under Islam, which seeks to control everyday life in a rather fascistic way. The book catalogs the multiple serious offenses that have occurred in Europe while journalists, growing up under generations of multiculturalist indoctrination, spewed out misinformation in an attempt to hide the facts, and deflect the ire of native Europeans.
The book catalogs the many serious offenses that have occurred in the name of Islam. Taken all together these revelations, now a decade old, inevitably produce the feeling that Islam and the Western liberal democracy are incompatible. One person found this helpful. This is one brave and much needed book. The author points out how the world has treated Islamic ideology with kid gloves.

No religion, be it Judaism, Christianity or Islam, should be treated in the public square in this way. We are not obligated to be apologists for any ideology at all. In painstaking detail, Bawer walks the reader how too many places in the world today have done just that when it comes to Islam. It's time to tell Muslims, just as we tell Christians and Jews, that religion is not off the table when it comes to criticism. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Author Bawer has done yeoman work in exposing the curtailment of free speech in the West and notably in the US in order not to offend Muslims.
Sometimes this is as a result of overt threats by Muslims, sometimes it occurs due to self-censorship to ward off such threats and criticism. In any case it is cowardly, and ultimately self-defeating. This work is replete with examples of such instances from beginning to end, but in spite of the author's courage in writing this book, I note that the publisher saw fit to omit the cartoons that brought the most direct threats from the Muslim world. It seems like self-censorship is alive and well. Frankly I have seen much worse anti-Christian "works of art" in the US, but these were allowed to be publically displayed.
I guess Christians aren't willing to murder people over such issues. Not only is the entire theme timely and important, but so are several side points. The author mentions "dhimmitude" -- a concept that should be loudly proclaimed on our Government-controlled media NBC and its various outlets and affiliates and taught in our schools until every American understands what it means. Non-Muslims are not merely 2nd class citizens in Muslim countries under Sharia law; they pay an tax for the privilege of not being a Muslim, cannot fight a Muslim, and their oaths are not valid.
Frankly their status is much lower than that of blacks in the US during the Jim Crow years. One must remember that the Qur'an definitely states that non-Muslims must be subordinate to Muslims and are not equal to Muslims in any sense.

Only the Muslims and the radical leftists in the US actually have free speech -- for the rest it is already a lost right. Bawer does well to prove this fact, and his scholarship is impressive. One would hope that more than a few are reading this book, but it doesn't look like it.
The hour is late. This book illustrates how politicians, journalists, and others in positions of influence urge, and often enforce, eggshell walking in relation to all things Islamic. Rather than tackling the unreasonable and often fearsome behaviour of Islamic elements in Western society, the onus is placed on us to keep our behaviour within narrow confines lest we set off a wave of rioting and violence at the hands of our cultural enrichers.
Those who have the courage to expose the danger facing the West are themselves vilified. Also, deceptive pictures of Islam and Islamic figures are painted to placate our healthy concern.
