Naivist – From a Danish social policy and current affairs book Islamists and Naivists by Karen Jespersen and Ralf Pittelkow warning of conquest by Islamic fundamentalists in Europe.A naivist is a European who ignore the threat posed by Islamists. Their book is bound to get more publicity as it compares Islamic fundamentalists with Nazis and Communists.

The book has become a bestseller in Denmark and received coverage in the European press. Kudos to the International Herald Tribune.
