How-to Book on Hating Your Islamic Neighbor/Enemy

It seems that Bruce Bawer believes that Islam is the worm that eats at the heart of Europe's superior culture. ...

According to this review of Bawer's book, While-Europe-Slept:

Bawer asserts that the reality — confirmed for him by the resistance of European Muslims to assimilation, and the marked presence in their communities of honor killings, homophobia, polygamy, marital rape, forced marriage, and intolerance of democracy and pluralism — is that European Muslim leaders, with demographics on their side, still harbor the millennial hope of taking power in Europe, and see the European attitude as both weak and hostile. It is “political correctness,” Bawer writes, that has “gotten Europe into its current mess.”
