Middle East Rules of Thumb

A review of Middle East Rules of Thumb: Understanding the Complexities of the Middle East—A Handbook by Steven Carol. iUniverse, Inc., New York (2008), publisher.

Middle East Rules of Thumb  is an appropriate title of an extraordinary book authored by historian Professor Steven Carol. This handbook clarifies the complexities of Arab-Islamic history during the past 1,400 years with an array of current facts comprehensible to students even at the high school level. Carol’s book should also be read, however, by college and university students so many of whom are misled by “politically correct” academics and journalists as well as by Arab propagandists.

This reader-friendly volume provides much needed factual data about the Israel-Israeli conflict. It should be on the bookshelves of Hillel Houses and Jewish Community Centers, and it should be brought to the attention of all friends of Israel, so often in need of solid facts to defend the one and only Jewish homeland.


Brigitte Gabriel’s They Must Be Stopped

Urgent: An unsolicited message.

I have read scores of books on Islam, including several by Bernard Lewis, the dean of Islamic scholarship, but none has so deeply impressed me as Brigitte Gabriel’s They Must Be Stopped (September 2008). This gallant Lebanese-born and now American author and lecturer has an extraordinary mission: to save America and the cherished values of the Judeo-Christian tradition. You can help Brigitte in this mission by reading and promoting her book. Make sure your local bookstores have a goodly supply of this spellbinding book. Recommend it to your PTA and all other organizations to which you belong.

Sadat’s Strategy was published in Hebrew in December 1978, four months before the signing of the March 26, 1979 Israel-Egypt peace treaty. During the two weeks preceding the signing of that treaty in Washington, D.C., I was on a lecture tour in the United States warning various audiences—as I had personally warned Prime Minister Menachem Begin in September 1977—against signing any agreement with Sadat.

It took intellectual courage and integrity on the part of Dr. Daniel Pipes, a renowned expert on the Middle East, to admit he had erred in supporting that treaty. (more…)
