Title: Hatred's Kingdom
Author: Dore Gold
From New York City to Bali, Indonesia, ideologically motivated terrorist groups have chillingly demonstrated their global reach. And terrorism is now far more lethal than before.
But what is causing it? Only as new reports have emerged about Saudi Arabia’s links to terror has the United States begun to look closely at the Saudi kingdom, America’s purported ally. Now, in Hatred’s Kingdom, Middle East expert Dore Gold provides the startling evidence of how Saudi Arabia not only is linked to terror, but in fact has spawned the current wave of global terrorism.
Using previously unpublished documents, Gold, the former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, exposes how the deeply ingrained hatred that has provoked the new terrorism has its roots in Saudi Arabia’s dominant religious creed, a radical Islamic offshoot known as Wahhabism.
My Thoughts: Really good read. Pretty similar to sleeping with the devil and Crisis in Islam. This focus on the House of Saud is pretty illuminating to say the least.
