Al-Qaeda doesn’t care about Hope” and Change”
The threat of terrorism in America, the Obama administration assures us, is contained and controlled. Recent attempted attacks like the Times Square bombing, the underwear bombing” on a flight over Detroit, and the attack on a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon were all isolated plots that failed anyway. In the words of Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, The system worked.”
Don’t believe it. In The Terrorist Next Door, investigative reporter Erick Stakelbeck exposes the staggering truth about our national security: the Obama administration is concealing and whitewashing the enormous terrorist threat growing right here within America’s borders.
If you believe terrorism is only a problem for other countries, Stakelbeck’s on-the-ground reporting will open your eyes. He has been inside America’s radical mosques, visited U.S.-based Islamic enclaves, and learned about our enemies by going straight to the sourceinterviewing al-Qaeda-linked terrorists themselves. In this shocking book, Stakelbeck reveals:
- How Islamic radicals have established separatist compounds and even jihadist training camps throughout rural America
- That an overt disciple of Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini now leads one of the largest mosques in America
- How mega-mosques aren't just planned for Ground Zerothey're being built in the heart of the Bible Belt as part of a plan for Islamic domination
- What a former U.S. covert agent inside the Iranian regime says about Iran’s program to recruit Americans into terror groups
- How the Obama administration’s beguiling counter-terrorism policies are increasing the threat of another 9/11
The Terrorist Next Door sounds the alarm on a growing threat to every Americanone that the U.S. government refuses to face honestly or even to name. As we struggle against a relentless and adaptable Islamist enemy that is committed to destroying our nation, we can’t say we weren’t warned.

You are holding in your hands the unvarnished, invaluable reporting that the rest of the mainstream media” can’t or won’t do. My friend Erick has traveled the world to interview terrorists who are plotting the establishment of a global Islamic caliphate—and who have succeeded in Islamicizing large swaths of Europe. He has investigated fifth column organizations on our soil that pledge allegiance not to our Republic, but to sharia law. In The Terrorist Next Door, he also blows the whistle on how the same reckless, open-borders policies I exposed in Invasion nine years ago continue to aid and abet jihadi-sympathizers from Somalia and elsewhere.” —Michelle Malkin, author of the New York Times bestseller, Culture of Corruption
