February 17, 2005, 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
Author Bat Ye’or will discuss her new book Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2005). The book makes the controversial argument that Europe and the Arab world are drifting increasingly closer culturally and politically, forming an alliance that is anti-Christian, anti-Western, and anti-American.
Born in Egypt, author Bat Ye’or is a pioneer researcher of minority religious groups within the Arab Muslim world. Her three major books translated from French are: The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians under Islam (1985), The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam: From Jihad to Dhimmitude (1996), and Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide (2002).
“This is a provocative and disturbing book…Bat Ye’or presents a wide range of historical and contemporary documents and facts to tell the story of how the European Union is being subverted by Islamic hostility...Readers…will be shocked by the evidence produced in these pages of unfair pressures and deliberate distortions…This book…should be essential reading (and re-reading) for everyone interested in true peace in the Middle East.” – Sir Martin Gilbert
“No writer has done more than Bat Ye’or to draw attention to the menacing character of Islamic extremism. Future historians will one day regard her coinage of the term ‘Eurabia’ as prophetic. Those who wish to live in a free society must be eternally vigilant. Bat Ye’or’s vigilance is unrivalled.” – Niall Ferguson
