From the inside cover:
“America’s devotion to political correctness has crippled its ability to accurately interpret and respond to the motives of its fiercest enemies. Unless we change course and re-engage the fight, the costs of our tolerance will prove tragic and immeasurable.”
In “The Fight of Our Lives: Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth & Choosing to Win the War Against Radical Islam,” New York Times Best-Selling Author William J. Bennett and Seth Leibsohn directly take on our nation’s inability to recognize radical Islam for what it really is. It begins with the Fort Hood shooting, where a US military member who subscribed to the radical Islam ideology took many innocent lives in the name of his religion. Sadly, the report thereafter failed to mention anything near the word “Islam” or “terror” and stumbled all over itself to make sure that the military’s diversity didn’t become a causality as a result of the shooting.
From there, it takes you on an eye-opening journey at our country’s marriage with political correctness and how it has weakened us to the point where we can’t recognize evil for what it is, much less tell anybody that we think they are wrong about ANYTHING. The authors’ straight-shooting, no holds barred approach makes this an enjoyable read.
I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers and their Booksneeze Blog Book Review program. In turn, I agreed to write this review.
