Book Description

10 Mar 2008
A New York Times bestseller, "Because They Hate" is a political wake-up call told through a very personal memoir frame. Brigitte Gabriel lost her childhood to militant Islam. In 1975, she was ten years old and living in Southern Lebanon when militant Muslims from throughout the Middle East poured into her country and declared jihad against the Lebanese Christians. "Because They Hate" warns that the U.S. is threatened by fundamentalist Islamic theology in the same way Lebanon was - radical Islam will stop at nothing short of domination of all non-Muslim countries. Gabriel saw this mission start in Lebanon, and she refuses to stand by silently while it happens in America. Gabriel sees in the West a lack of understanding and a blatant ignorance of the ways and thinking of the Middle East. She also points out mistakes the West has made in consistently underestimating the single-mindedness with which fundamentalist Islam has pursued its goals over the past thirty years.Fiercely articulate and passionately committed, "Because They Hate" tells Gabriel's personal story as well as outlines the history, social movements, and religious divisions that have led to this critical historical conflict.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frightening but pertinent and timeous warning 19 Oct 2008
In this frightening but pertinent and timeous warning this courageous woman of truth and vision, Brigitte Gabriel, warns the USA and the world of the danger faced by Islamo-Fascism, and how ignoring or appeasing this threat will result in the ruthless and bloody islamification of the USA and other Western societies unless we face this cancer and act now.

Gabriel points out how "Today, radical Islam's war rages with varying degrees of intensity throughout the world, not only against Christians and Jews in the West but also against Hindus, Buddhists, Copts, indeed all non-Muslim infidels. The radical Islamists decree of zealotry even has them attacking other denominations within Islam itself. Islamic radicals are instigating and perpetuating terrorist campaigns, insurgencies, civil wars, minority suppression and ethnic cleansing and/or genocide in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Chad, Chechnya, Dagestan, Denmark, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gambia, Great Britain, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Kashmir, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, the Netherlands, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, territories administered by the Palestinian authority, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Somalia, Spain, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, the United States of America, Yemen and Zanzibar".

Brigitte Gabriel, lived as a ten year old girl through the terror as of Muslims from across the world flooded into Lebanon to wage a bloody and ruthless jihad against Lebanese Christians in which over 60 000 Lebanese Christian men, women and children were butchered. A horrific exercise in ethnic cleansing that was ignored by the world and by those who's self-proclaimed task was to stand up for human rights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave woman 23 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This lady is a Lebanese version of Ali Ayaan Hirsi. A brave woman indeed. Read of her life in Lebannon and how as a youth she was taught that Israel was the enemy and athreat to her and her family. Then the P.L.O moved in and Lebannon which was a little bit of Europe and democracy in the region was turned into a barbaric war zone. read how she ended up in Israel and saw that what she had been taught as a youth was all lies. A fascinating read and testimony of her life. How far she has come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Factually Correct Though Politically incorrect 30 Dec 2013
Ignore the one star reviews, these are from people who have never touched the book, there is a Muslim website telling them to review this one star to hide the truth!
This is without a doubt the most important thing you will ever read, Buy it for everyone for Christmas and birthdays, there should be one of these in every door of every house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave women 27 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not a comfortable read, but one that will open your eyes to what is behind the news. A lot of the violence and hate is ingrained in the cultures and the social pressure, that goes with it. This true story is like a sojourn and a survival of coming out from under the blanket of deception in her part of the Middle East, including her own Christian culture. This book will help you see a truer picture of what motivates Islam and the emptiness of that path and the danger that it is to the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons We Must Learn 28 Mar 2007
Lebanon used to be a bright spot in a very dark Middle East. It was a rare democracy with a Christian majority. Muslims and non-Muslims could live together in peace and calm, even at the political level. It was a beacon of hope and freedom to the surrounding Arab nations. The Lebanese had the highest standard of living in the area. In many ways it seemed more like a Western nation, and Beirut was known as the Paris of the Middle East.

But all that changed in 1975 when radical Muslims from surrounding nations declared jihad on the Lebanese Christians, and poured into Southern Lebanon to set up a Muslim state. Radical Muslims who hated democracy and wanted to impose Sharia law turned the Lebanese oasis into a hell hole.

Among those who lived through the terror was one young Maronite Christian girl, Brigitte Gabriel. She was ten years old when the rape of Lebanon began. For the next seven years she and her family would spend most of their time living in an underground bomb shelter, enduring the onslaught of Islamist anger and fury.

She witnessed firsthand the murder, rape, hatred and genocide of a once-great land. She experienced the terror, ethnic cleansing, and dictatorship of Muslim radicals. And she also saw how these Islamists masterfully controlled and manipulated the media, to make it look like they were the good guys, and the Christians and Jews were the source of evil in the region.

This book tells her story in chilling and moving detail. But the book is much more than a personal story. It is also a warning. It is a warning to America and the West that the very thing that happened to Lebanon is now happening to all Western democracies. Radical Muslims have declared a holy war against the West, and made clear their intention of destroying it.
