A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America
by Brigitte Gabriel
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. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
