Hidden Struggle: The Challenge of Sharia in the West examines the conflict between Muslim sharia law and Western law. European leaders have broadly accepted the claim of Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood that sharia is flexible, tolerant, and compatible with Western law and society. In fact, the opposite is true: sharia is not flexible but instead Western governments are bending Western law to accommodate sharia-related demands. The international Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the European Union (EU) also play a decisive role in shaping these outcomes. In the United States, the decisions of the federal government are a key battleground. Whether it is women’s rights or freedom of religion and speech, our vital interests are at stake – and we must defend them.
"Leslie S. Lebl’s book provides crucial insight into Islamic organizations’ political strategies and predatory methods to Islamize Western democratic countries. Her detailed account of the progress they have already achieved in Europe would hopefully sound the alarm to stop Sharia from subverting American constitutional freedoms and way of life."
Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, Director of the American Center for Democracy
"Since the later 20th century (early 15th century according to Islam), Islamic supremacists have engaged in a covert, invasive cognitive war against the West, demanding we stand down while they invade. Leslie S. Lebl has written an invaluable guide to the many facets of this theater of war. In clear and dispassionate language, she thoroughly documents the extensive successes that the Islamists have accomplished, even as those in charge of defending the West have done their best to ignore and deny the very existence of a threat. Everyone who cherishes freedom needs to read this book."
