Product Description

From the Inside Flap

The most powerfu and authoritative book written on the causes of terrorism. Walid Shoebat, who is a self-confessed, former Islamic-inspired terrorist, reveals all the reasons why he and his former colleagues commit these acts of violence and genocide while they 'lay in wait' for the next opportunities.

In this book, Shoebat not only gives insight into his own thinking but carefully analyzes the mindset of many intellectuals on the cause of terrorism. He also explain the key problems and how to defeat terrorism; he substantiates his argument from a fascinating and unique perspective.

A MUST READ for out political leaders, as well as Americans and people of the Western world who believe in our way of life and freedom.

About the Author

Walid Shoebat was born in Bethlehem of Judea, Israel. As a young man, he became a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel. He was later imprisoned in the Russian Compound, Jerusalem's central prison for incitement and violence against Israel. In 1993, he read the Bible at the behest of his wife and converted to Christianity. Ever since, he has been educating his former enemies about the Jihadist threat they face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why We want To Kill You 25 May 2007
By Fafarafa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A Great Follow Up to Mr. Shoebat's previous book. It has fascinating incites to the thinking of terrorists and terror sympathizers.

It clearly defines Islamic fundamenatlist goals and makes arguments that need to be taken very seriously concerning the the number one problem concerning the freedoms we now enjoy but are under serious threat.

The number one book to read on understanding the threat of Islamic fundamentalist inspired terror.

A former terrorist now on our side is a must read for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential 14 Jun. 2007
By English Teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is authored by that rarest of breeds, the reformed terrorist. It offers an absolutely essential insider's look into the world of terrorism. This may be one of our few glimpses into this world and the lessons we can learn from it are invaluable. A must-read for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The #1 book to understand what we are facing 16 Jun. 2007
By Deborah Davies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Shoebat gives the most credible insight to what the world faces from the threat of the Islamic ideology that drives young Muslims all over the world to carry out world Islamic domination. It also exposes the agenda of "moderate Muslims" who are in a giant scheme of deception and propaganda to disguise the threat.

A book that the main stream media seems to want to avoid because it completely bursts their bubble with someone who has the real credibilty to undermine their positions of political correctness.

4.0 out of 5 stars An eye-opening read 15 July 2007
By Cheryl D. Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I thought this was a real eye opener. It is a counter balance to the current news, the viewpoints of liberals and the position taken by our government.

Mr. Shoebat's view is taken from the position of an ex-terrorist/jihadist. He was raised in the Middle East with the training & indoctrination given to many Muslim kids. His mother is Christian and kept under the bondage of sharia law. His father and brothers carried on the tradition of Islam.

I was intrigued by the title and picked it up because I was looking for a book to balance the generally accepted view (which I questioned) that Islam is a peaceful, generous and pious faith of the God of both Judaism and Christianity.

Since there is no credible translation of the Quran -- the truth of it is only found in the Original Arabic -- I was interested in Mr. Shoebat's expose' of the teachings and truths written there. His opening the Quran and showing us Allah's character, teachings and warnings was fascinating. The ideology of Islam is chilling to those who know that "something is just not right" between what the Muslim clerics declare as jihad's "inner struggle" vs. others call to jihad with death to all those who will not accept their god and who live contrary to the teachings of Allah & Mohammed.

When you read this, consider that in this author's message we who are not following Islam are infidels, the unfaithful, and in their world view and plan we must either convert or become their slaves or die. There is no freedom of religion or choice in Islam's plan for world domination. Unlike Christianity which allows for choice and the consequences being divied out by God/Jehovah, Islam demands faith or else in the here and now.

He also discusses the fact of shaheeds: martyrs (often experienced as suicide bombers). There is chilling information gleaned from our government records on statistics, speculations and concerns that have not been reported widely in the press to the American public.

Read it. Argue it. Think. And then watch what is going on in the Middle East and within our own borders. Life is getting interesting to say the least.

At the very least you will have something to think about and a good summer read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great insights on a warped death cult 12 Nov. 2007
By F. Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mr. Shoebat describes a frightening "death cult" that has emerged from Islam. A nice analogy I use is that the Jihadis are to Islam as the Inquisitors were to Christianity. There are ways to interpret religious texts in such a way to justify great cruelty in the service of human lust for power. Shoebat describes this phenomenon in Islam. What is scary is that most Islam in the Middle East is under the sway of these Jihadis, either to preserve the political order where loyalty and connections trump merit, or as a reaction to the speed of change in a modernizing world. Shoebat has converted to Christianity, so has a convert's zeal in seeing the flaws of his previous belief system. However, he details the abuse of women and non-Moslems, and the demonization of all who do not follow the path of whichever charismatic leader has killed his way to the top of the heap. To paraphrase him, evangelical Christians annoy you by wanting to change your head. Islamists want to cut off your head. There are other more scholarly works about the dysfunction in Islam, but Shoebat provides a raw insider's view that makes this danger very clear.
