"The entire Muslim world is going through a process of radicalization which, in the case of Europe, is blindly tolerated, and indeed magnified, by multiculturalism and a severe identity crisis among the native Europeans themselves. In Europe's Ghost, Michael Radu reveals that Europe's identity crisis does not lie in past or present racism or in a variety of largely invented or anachronistic crimes, but in self-inflicted renunciation of national traditions in favor of multiculturalism. In fact, most European elites see jihadism as nothing but a peculiar form of criminality, due to the social and economic problems inside Europe, rather than what it is: a peculiar form of warfare rooted in cultural developments imported from the Muslim world. The truth, Radu offers, is that most Muslims in most European countries, see themselves as visitors, rather than as citizens of Europe. Thus, the British media's outcry over the phenomenon of British-born Muslim terrorists murdering "fellow Britons" is dangerously misplaced. The terrorists did what they did precisely because they did not see themselves as Britons but as true Muslims at war with the infidel country in which they lived. For the United States, the fact that European territories now export and organize Islamist terrorism should be a wake-up call. European ghosts tend to cross the ocean, and if the European Islamic ghost has substance it is because the Europeans gave it to it."--Publisher's website.
