Timmerman, an investigative reporter who has written extensively about the Middle East for more than two decades, goes deep inside the Arab world to reveal the depth and extent of anti-Semitic hatred there—and to expose how the “new” anti-Semitism means not just hatred of Jews but also hatred of America and the West.

From Saudi Arabia to Egypt to Lebanon, vicious anti-Semi

Dangerously chilling. Timmerman is obviously writing out of a bias and with a pretty strong agenda, but I will leave it to the reader to determine how relevant that is to the source material. This was my first nonfiction exposure to any real analysis of radical Islam's effects and pracices. Timmerman gives some chilling descriptions of how anti-Semitism and violence are promoted within madrassas, and there's also some good-to-know history here about Islam's ideological (not just geographical) co ...more

Exhaustive account of Saudi influence in the world and how Sharia law is the vehicle of choice. Scary, scary, scary. The amount of money that the official Saudi government poors into fundamentalism abroad is stunning, and this is all counterbalanced by their public duplicity. Their alignment with several republican administrations and their oil wealth/economic clout, has shielded them from much of the public scrutiny they have received under less favorable circumstances.

A disturbing account of rising anti-semitism and anti-American attitudes in the Islamic world and Europe. The "international Jewish conspiracy" and the book "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" are ridiculous but widely accepted among millions of people. Hatred has become very pervasive throughout the world and it is something we are already facing.

Well told; I can only pray that there is a sequel that comes out in the future that will tell how/whether anything has changed to give hope that Islamist can reside peacefully in a world that is occupied by others than they. Some of the material is now aging, but there seems little real development to make it any less relevant.
Tim Painter
A very detailed look at life inside Saudi Arabia and the islamic sect called Wahabism (not sure on the spelling). An eye opener for those who think that Saudi Arabia is our ally. Gives detailed information on what Saudi Arabia is doing to spread their sect which is one of hatred and repression.
Grace Harrington
Well written, yet it gives a very biased look at the Arab and Islamic world's view on America. Very pro-Israel and anti the rest of the Middle East, which is ok, that is Trimmerman's choice, but strongly false in what it teaches concerning the views of Muslims.
Fredrick Danysh
An in-depth discussion of anti-American and anti-Jewish propaganda by Islamic religious leaders to encourage terrorist actions against America. The documented cases mirror the efforts of Adolph Hitler against Jews and other "undesirables".

I have read 78 pages till now... fast paced book.... Author is, no doubt, biased in his opinion and totally supports Israeli policies and actions...... All in all an interesting book till now... :)
Del Simmons
An interesting view into what makes the average Islamist Radical tick, and why they hate America with such passion. Well worth a read (or listen)
