"Allah has bought from the Umma-the true believers of Islam-their selves and their substance in return for Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah, killing and being killed. Their promise is written in the blood of the moon." -From the Koran, chap. 9, v. 112

Reread. In this brief book, George Grant digs into history to explain the roots of conflicts that bedevil the Middle East hundreds and in some cases thousands of years after their inception. For example, he suggests that the multiple invasions carried out against Kuwait by Saddam Hussein's Iraq have their roots in the ancient Babylonian/Sumerian rivalry. He does very persuasively argue that ancient empires continue to inspire Middle Eastern dictatorships to the present day. And his explanation o ...more

I really appreciated this introduction to the history of conflict between Islam and the West. It was especially fascinating to see the obsession with cultural history that seems to be a characteristic of many Middle Eastern countries. It's a bit like the nationalism that swept through Europe in the 19th century. My only complaint is that the book was too short and left me with too many question. I guess that just the nature of an introduction, though. There's a nice bibliography that I plan to p ...more

A history of the conflict between the two sons of Abraham - Isaac and Ishmael - and their seed. The point that I most appreciated about this book is that it rather forcibly demonstrated that the conflict in the Middle East is nothing new - Ishmaelites have fought against Jews and Christians since the B.C.'s.

Something that stuck out at me was that if the American school system taught history instead of social studies, we would understand the problems in the middle east and realize that even though Moses supposes erroneously, Moses still supposes his toses are roses. They fight for what they think is right, and you cannot crush conviction with force.

(read it for a self imposed challenge of completing reading this piece of junk)

Written with Grant's eloquent, speech-worthy prose, this is a clear, succinct telling of the clash between Isaac and Ishmael through the millennia.
