Timmerman explores the roots of this hatred, examining its history, the religious sources upon which it draws, and how it is being transmitted to young people growing up in Arab societies by their leaders, their teachers, and their mosques. He documents how U.S. and European Union money has been used to finance hatred in Palestinian schools. He exposes the double-talk of Arab leaders and their supporters in the West. As it so often was throughout history, this new strain of Jew hatred is really about much more than Jews. They get attacked first, when the enemies of America can't attack Americans. However, what begins with the Jews never ends with the Jews.
As America reasserts her role in the Middle East and attempts to bring peace between Jews and Arabs, Preachers of Hate is an essential book that reframes a very complicated issue as a matter of life and death.

Don't Say They Didn't Warn You
After reading, and listening to, several books on Islam, this book, like some of the others, takes an unpopular view of Islam and its creation. The scary thing is that a great deal of the arguments ring true. They all agree that a large body of Muslims support the militant view that we often attribute only to terrorists. Islam as the one and only true religion is a central theme and how that is interpreted is discussed in detail. Very informative, requiring scrutiny and analysis.

We need to know about this...
I read this book BEFORE I seen Michael Moore's Farenheit 9/11, looks as if he did prior to making the film. This book makes an important contribution to western audiences ability to understand islam in the modern world, and the role of the House of Saud in spreading international terror. Some reviewers mistakenly feel that it is a polemic against islam; it is not, but it is an accurate description of a toxic vein that runs through the religion. I am very glad I don't have to live with the same level of threat that the Israelis do. After the cold war, elements within Islam seem to have put themselves on a collison course with other world views. We need to know about this.
