With strident confidence, American Congress for Truth founder Gabriel rebukes the American public for being "weak, asleep or careless" in the face of Muslim terrorism. A Christian survivor of the vicious civil war between Lebanese Christians and Muslims in the 1970s, Gabriel leans on her own terrifying experiences to condemn Muslims, without apparent regard for their ethnicity, ideology or historical role. Consistently using the words "Muslim" and "Arab" as if they were interchangeable, she concludes that the U.S. is "facing total destruction" at the hands of people who are uncultured and cruel, and prescribes such solutions as "profile, profile and profile," and banning "hate education" in Islamic institutions. Though her writing is eloquent and her passion tremendous, Gabriel's strict dichotomy between "evil versus goodness" is too extreme to be informative. Readers will be forced to decide whether or not to accept her heart-felt bias. (Oct.)

“[Brigitte Gabriel's] writing is a critical wake-up call to Americans as we face the threat of takeover by jihadists. We are glad to be able to help her share her story with God-fearing, patriotic Americans who care about the truth and want to learn about the threat every nation throughout the world is facing from radical Islam.” ―Paul F. Crouch, Jr., Vice President of Administration, Trinity Broadcasting Network
“A compelling and captivating personal story with a powerful lesson about threats to freedom in our time.” ―R. James Woolsey, Director of Central Intelligence, 1993-95
“Because They Hate should be read by all to understand radical Islam. . . This book gives dire warning of what is to come if the democratic and Western world does not take responsible action to protect its people and societies. The United States is the primary target as Islamic Radicalism attempts to spread its worldwide dominance.” ―Paul E. Vallely, Maj. General US Army (Ret.), FOX News Channel Military Analyst, and coauthor of Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror

“Gabriel makes her case, but also offers a sound and powerful program of what we have to do as a nation and as individuals to stave off defeat by radical Islam.” ―The Bulletin
“Gabriel believes the West is complacent about the threat posed by radical Islam. She learned while growing up Christian in Lebanon that Islamofascists are serious―and if we want to survive we better take them seriously. She speaks with the passion of a survivor who has seen death and destruction firsthand―and doesn't want America to suffer the same future as Lebanon. ” ―World MagazineSee all Product Description

This woman's life story most certainly helped me join the dots, of the what, why and how, of then and now.
You will learn without any political correctness, more than perhaps you wish to know.
Some reviewers stated the author has a bias, which she probably does and is certainly understandable, but.............. assuming there is a bias, and only one half of what she wrote is true, that half you need to know.
To quote the author's friend "When you bury your head in the sand, all you do is make a big fat target out of your behind".
Brigitte Gabriel grew up with a strong sense of purpose. This was due to her surviving the war in Lebanon as an only child born to aging parents in a culture that looks upon the birth of a girl with disdain. By adulthood, having lived like a rat in a bomb shelter for seven years, she emerged a determined woman destined to effect some change for the good. An act of courage got her her first job (p. 95.) An act of kindness led to her second job (p. 99.) Chance took care to hand her the third one (p. 104.) It was thus that this woman came out of obscurity all of a sudden as a young reporter of world news.Read more ›
It became a nightmare of murder, atrocity and destruction. She also witnessed at first hand how the terrorists manipulate the media, for example by launching missiles from Christian towns then blaming Israel for the retaliation that followed. They played the victim card very well, exploiting the clueless or complicit mass media at every turn. A good analysis of this phenomenon is available in The Other War by Stephanie Gutmann. When the Israelis invaded in 1982, the family finally managed to escape the horror by finding refuge in Israel. There they experienced kindness and compassion; she eventually became a journalist, married an American and moved to the USA.
The second part examines the history of the global jihad and how its hydra heads are sprouting in the West. The author considers Lebanon the early testing ground for the global ambitions of the Jihadis. In this section she delves into the Koran and compares the Western with the Islamist concepts of, among others: truth, life and human dignity. Pointing out the major differences, she shows how the radicals are using Western values like tolerance, the rule of law and free speech against the West.Read more ›
