In an exclusive interview with Accuracy in Media (AIM), Andy McCarthy claimed that what's happening in the Middle East "is not the spontaneous outbreak of democracy," but rather the ascendancy of Islamic supremacism. McCarthy, who prosecuted Omar Abdel-Rahman (the "Blind Sheikh) for the first World Trade Center bombing, also observed that the only countries that practice slavery today are Islamic countries.

McCarthy recently authored Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy. In the AIM interview, he pointed out that America and Islam are two different civilizations and that while we're a freedom culture, in Islam "liberty is subordinated to 'order'...sharia law." McCarthy also said that what the media largely ignore is the fact that there is serious persecution of religious minorities throughout the Middle East. He indicated that 0f the worst 50 countries that persecute religious minorities today, 36 of them are Muslim countries.
