Book: Arab Winter Arrives in America
He discussed the book on CBN Monday, the day of the book’s release.
There’s a lot to admire about Spencer’s scholarship, although he curiously didn’t mention diverse Muslim immigration as a major transporter of jihad around the world in his interview on CBN. How does he think it gets here? (Amazon does’t have its “look inside” feature hooked up yet, so the inquiring reader can’t check the index for listings of immigration.)
Robert Spencer has mentioned immigration as a jihad problem in previous books, albeit briefly, but not in Monday’s discussion.
Expert Warns of America’s Coming ‘Arab Winter’, CBN News, April 14, 2014
One year ago, Islamic terrorists set off two bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring nearly 300 people.
Author and Islam expert Robert Spencer says that attack marked a resurgence of Islamic jihad on American soil.
When the “Arab Spring” revolutions began in Tunisia and Egypt in 2011, many in the West hailed the uprisings as the beginning of a new era of democracy and pluralism in the Middle East.
But that didn’t happen. Instead, the region is less stable, more uncertain, and more violent than before.
On the anniversary of the Boston marathon bombing, Spencer has released his newest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About The War We’re In.
Spencer says the same radical Islamic groups that caused the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East are at work in America right now, exposing Americans to even more threats of jihad.
He warns that the country is shockingly unequipped to face this threat.
