Jamie Glazov. California: WND Books, ISBN On the face of it, a scholarly study of the relationship between the far left and political Islam is a worthwhile, if not urgent endeavour. There are of course striking similarities between these ostensibly disparate ideologies.

Each aspires towards a form of utopia. In practice, however, communist and Islamist regimes have produced highly repressive societies hallmarked by pervasive state control over daily life; freedom of speech and political association are non-existent whilst human rights violations are widespread. Historically, secular communist regimes and Islamic theocracies both regard Westernstyle liberal democracy with barely concealed contempt.

Thankfully most of the communist regimes that blighted the lives of billions of human beings during the past century no longer exist or exist in name only. Yet, just as a section of the Western Left turned a blind eye towards or, worse, excused the horrors of twentieth century communism, today some Leftists either support, or adopt an uncritical stance towards, radical Islamists.

Some depict Islamism as a form of anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist politics. For instance, Tad Tietze, writing for left-wing Australian journal Overland in argued that "building united fronts with Islamist currents around specific issues is an inescapable part of any potentially successful Left politics in the Middle East. So why would ostensibly anti-racist, pro-gay, pro-feminist leftists give succour to a political movement characterised by anti-Semitic racism, homophobia and misogyny, and thus opposed to core Left principles?

Jamie Glazov's United in Hate attempts to make sense of this incongruous state of affairs. Glazov is a Russian-born son of Soviet dissidents who fled to America in the early s. His politics are fiercely conservative, evinced by his editorship of the online Frontpage magazine, a publication of his mentor, one-time radical leftist David Horowitz.

Glazov's major task is to detail the gross hypocrisy of many Western, mainly American leftists who demonise their own societies yet fall silent on the subject of non-Western totalitarianism. Whether it is radical American Jewish intellectual Noam Chomsky cavorting with anti-Semitic organisations such as the militant Lebanese Shi'a Muslim group Hezbollah, or British politician George Galloway's admiration for various Arab dictatorships, a cavalcade of leftists have subscribed to "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" ethos.

Unfortunately United in Hate is undone by its polemical style, penchant for hyperbole and dubious historical interpretations. The book's first sentence declares: "Throughout the twentieth century, the Western Left supported one totalitarian killing machine after another. Does it include anti-totalitarian social democrats, or democratic socialists such as George Orwell, all fiercely opposed to fascism and communism? With the exception of Harry Truman, Glazov seems to believe that Democrat administrations have appeased totalitarian regimes.

Lyndon B. Johnson's prosecution of the Vietnam War would seem to contradict such a reading. An unknown error has occurred. Please click the button below to reload the page.

United in Hate analyzes the Left's contemporary romance with militant Islam as a continuation of the Left's love affair with communist totalitarianism in the twentieth century. Both the radical Left and radical Islam possess a profound hatred for Western culture, for a capitalist economic structure that recognizes individual achievement and for the Judeo-Christian heritage of the United States. Both seek to establish a new world order: leftists in the form of a classless communist society and Islamists in the form of a caliphate ruled by Sharia law. To achieve these goals, both are willing to wipe the slate clean by means of limitless carnage, with the ultimate goal of erecting their utopia upon the ruins of the system they have destroyed.
