    One thought on “Surrender: Appeasing Islam, Sacrificing Freedom”

    1. I have mixed feelings on this book It is almost as if the author is screaming at the reader it should have been written with CAPS ON I am all for free speech but the author sees no limitations Is it really necessary to defend or even mention someone who would flush the Quran down a toilet to make a point There are rational and articulate ways to make a statement For instance, Time magazine had a horrific picture of a young girl who had been disfigured by Taliban extremists for leaving her abusi [...]

    2. There is now an entire genre of books warning about an incremental movement toward sharia law and the failure of the West to acknowledge the threat These books are routinely labeled alarmist by the press and by academics Well, counters Bruce Bawer, if some of us are fearful, it s because many influential persons have plainly decided the West s future lies in gradual accommodation with sharia law Bawer offers example after example of Western capitulation, in the United States but particularly in [...]

    3. This book is dangerous In it, it preaches for freedom to fight against Islamic appeasement I am frighten at how easily the U.K, Dutch, Norway, governments are trying to erode the rights of its citizens to criticize or even mention the relationship between fundamentalism and terrisom I plan to buy some of the books that the Islamic had requested to be banned, burned, or mashed to pulp to ensure that the heros and heroines of freedom of artistic expressions from Samuel Rushdie s The Satanic Verses [...]

    4. This book started fine with sharp criticism about the dynamics of Islam in the West badly integrated immigrants with their bullying attitude you draw cartoon i will bomb you and the politicians and the media who cowardly conform to those bullying and terrorizing gestures The second half of the book especially after he talks about portrayal in hollywood movies turns blah, blah, blah until I am really fed up.It is de ja vu for me On the other end of the world before 9 11, I read books like this Bi [...]

    5. A very densely packed book, but it is definitely worth the time to read it thoroughly There is a lot of important information in here and I would urge anyone who is interested in the civil rights of women and or gays, as well as those concerned with freedom of the press, freedom of speech and other essential first amendment rights to pick this book up Bawer known also for his writings on gay rights and Christian fundamentalism will tell you the stories and the details that the mainstream media m [...]

    6. Terrifying stuff in this book Even terrifying considering this book was written in 2009 and we, as a country, have become only determined to give away our free speech rights with both hands e.g trigger warnings, speech codes, antifa, etc As the author points out, ours is becoming an Orwellian world where bravery is cowardice, bullying is victimhood, and standing up for freedom in the face of religious totalitarians is a demonstration of racism However much I appreciated the author s expertise, [...]

    7. Bruce Bawer s follow up to While Europe Slept takes on many of the same ideas concerning the clash of Islamic and Western values, yet in a much larger sense I m a big fan of this man s work, and the way he speaks out plainly and unabashedly about the real teachings of Islam is inspiring Many times the book made me so frustrated at the PC inspired establishments of various countries and their incredibly cowardly position that free speech should be reformed so as not to insult Muslims that I actua [...]

    8. Bruce Bawer s Place at the Table was instrumental in changing my mindset about sexual orientation as it relates to political identity and advocacy A 2004 essay he authored in the Hudson Review Hating America is a must read His latest book, Surrender, picks up where his previous book While Europe Slept left off This is a well documented expose of the self censorship practiced by western media and cultural institutions on the subject of Islamofascism for fear of offending Muslims Bawer is an astut [...]

    9. This book focuses primarily on how Islam is being appeased in Europe through Creeping Sharia and Stealth Jihad An excellent warning for the U.S I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the current state of affairs between the U.S and the Islamic world.

    10. Bawer is an excellent writer and even though 90% of the material was familiar it was still a memorable experience.

    11. The post Enlightenment West isn t about respecting ideas or religions or ideologies it s about debating them What it respects is individual freedom including the freedom to criticize any idea, or religion, as much as one bloody well pleases p 139 to distinguish between having the right to express an idea and not having the right to express it in words of one s own choosing is to jettison the First Amendment p 171Bawer takes on the notion that the citizens of Western democracies ought to curb fre [...]
