Marked for Death by Geert Wilders

In Marked for Death:  Islam’s War Against the West and Me (Washington, DC:  Regnery Publishing, Inc., 2012), Geert Wilders relates his experience as a member of the Dutch Parliament fighting the Islamic attack on culture in the Netherlands while under police protection because of death threats he’s received for speaking about Islam.  He also covers the history of Islam and the current status of its “war” against the West.

The book is very readable, and I highly recommend it.
