Surrender: Appeasing Islam, Sacrificing Freedom by Bruce Bawer

By Bruce Bawer

In his arguable and seriously acclaimed While Europe Slept, Bruce Bawer defined the risk that Islamic immigration posed to standard ecu values. during this provocative follow-up, he is taking up the West's contemporary development of silence and appeasement within the face of cultural intimidation by means of radical Islam.

From an exam of insurance of the surprising homicide of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh to the frequent denunciation of the Danish editors who released editorial cartoons mocking Mohammed, Bawer indicates how radical Islam has cowed Western media, politicians, intellectuals, and non secular leaders into believing that we needs to quit definitely the right of loose expression to peacefully coexist with the Muslim global. Fearless and excoriating, Surrender is an unapologetic and uncompromising safety of unfastened speech that would stir conservatives and liberals alike.

And everyone agreed that it would be easier for her to emigrate there if she was already his legal wife. But within days her new husband left—without a word, without reason, and without her. She was crushed and humiliated, but it only got worse. Two weeks later, she was told that the cousin had divorced her when he got back to Germany. “It is so easy for a man,” Roshanna told me.

After she left Roshanna’s salon, she started asking around for further details about the girl. She liked what she heard.
