Al Quaeda and its sympathisers are often viewed as isolated fanatics outside of the mainstream Muslim population not only in the West but also in respectable Muslim nations. This book argues just the opposite: that in fact terrorism is the logical outgrowth of an international Islamic political agenda that is endorsed and funded by Islam's major players - Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Pakistan. Moorthy S Muthuswamy labels these nations the 'Axis of Jihad'. For decades, he says, they have been devoted to extending their spheres of influence in the name of religion. Utilising a recent groundbreaking statistical analysis of Islamic doctrines and an analysis based upon the outlook of Muslims, he discusses the possibility that Islam is less a religion and more an ideology of conquest. He urges US policymakers to rethink the War on Terror along the lines of the successfully waged Cold War against communism. The nuclear physicist - author makes the following main point: Like the Cold War, this war is more a contest of ideas than armed conflict. Rather than placing the emphasis on military might and costly wars abroad, the West should invest the bulk of its effort in a science-based ideological war, one that is directed at discrediting the simplistic, conquest-oriented theological roots of Islamist indoctrination and jihadist politics. Muthuswamy also emphasises the importance of a largely non-Muslim India in the War on Terror, in view of its location and size. The India-born author gives a fascinating description of modern Islamic conquest in South Asia. His insights into the Islamist siege and subversion of Indian democracy should be revealing for the citizens of western democracies. The author asserts that the West needs India in dealing with the conundrum that is Pakistan, as they both share language, culture, and more with each other. This fresh perspective on the ongoing threat from Islamist terrorism offers much to ponder about the future course of US foreign policy initiatives.

"It is great luck to come across a book like Moorthy S. Muthuswamy's Defeating Political Islam. It contains all the answers to the questions looming over our widening and deepening presence in 'AfPak' and more. Mr. Muthuswamy's must-read chapter about India's debilitating fight against political Islam makes a compelling case for the United States to elevate India's role in fighting global jihad... It all makes perfect sense; in some ways, it's even obvious. Which isn't to say that [it] won't come as eye-popping revelation to its readers. I only hope they won't take the book's urgent message to heart too late." -- Washington Times, May 27, 2009 and Family Security Matters, June 1, 2009 "So what can Prime Minister Netanyahu expect from Egypt's creation, the PLO, now called the Palestinian Authority? He should seek the advice of Dr. Muthuswamy." -- American Congress for Truth blog, May 18, 2009
