Europe’s Ghost
Tolerance, Jihadism, and the Crisis in the West

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 the 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.
