Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book presents a disturbing picture of Saudi Arabia and of U.S. policy in the Persian Gulf.It challenges widely-held views about the moderation, stability and cooperativeness of the Saudi government.It highlights the anti-Christian and antisemitic bigotry of the instruction in Saudi schools, the violence inherent in the Islamist doctrines taught in foreign schools financed from Saudi Arabia, the influence that such doctrines exert among Muslim groups in the United States, the longstanding obsequiousness ofU.S. officials toward the Kingdom and the distorted lenses through which many Americans perceive Saudi Arabia and Islam.Sarah Stern has put together a volume of provocative, controversial essays.They should be read and debated, for they raise important questions that have long received inadequate inattention." - Douglas J.Feith, Senior Fellow and Director, Center for National Security Strategies, Hudson Institute, Former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, author of War and Decision: Inside the Pentagon at the Dawn of the War on Terrorism

"This book makes an important contribution toward exposing the dangers posed by the Saudi royal family and their global network.For decades, we have turned a blind eye while the Saudis funded terrorists and radical schools throughout the world, and I am pleased that this group of experts is revealing the goals and tactics of the Saudi regime so we can understand them better and prevent them from doing even more harm to us and our way of life." - U.S. Congresswoman Shelley Berkley

"Understanding the sources of funding for terrorism is critical to defeating this threat to our way of life. Sarah Stern’s book is required reading on this issue." - John Bolton, Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations

"Few people know as much, see as much and can communicate the truth about the Middle East as much as Sarah Stern. You will be amazed at what you read." - Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist

About the Author

Sarah N. Stern is the founder and president of EMET, The Endowment for Middle East Truth, an unabashedly pro-Israel and pro-American think tank and policy shop in Washington, DC. Previously she was the director of governmental and legislative affairs of the American Jewish Congress, and prior to that she was the national policy coordinator of the Zionist Organization of America. Sarah and her organization have been at the helm of pro-Israel advocacy for many years. Her efforts have resulted in the establishment in the Department of Justice of an Office for Victims of Overseas Terrorism to ensure equal justice under the law for American victims of Palestinian terrorism, the passage of the Syrian Accountability Act, the passage of a resolution in defense of Israel's right to build a security fence, and the passage of a law that calls for a more balanced curriculum in Middle Eastern Studies Departments throughout America. She has written for The New Republic, InFocus, the Middle East Quarterly, the Jewish Post and the Washington Jewish Week. She also contributed a chapter to Frank Gaffney's book War Footing and is the author of one novel Cherished Illusions. Sarah is married to Buddy, a physician, and is the mother of Bezalel, Noam and Rachel. She and her husband reside in suburban Washington.

Format: Hardcover
This book is as scary as Stephen King and as brilliant as Stephen Hawking. Prepare to be flabbergasted and appalled at the extraordinary power and influence of extremist Saudi terror-mongers. This book is written by a who's who of experts on the Middle East and terrorism. The portrait that they draw is more disturbing than anything you will see in the mainstream media. This book is not cheap, but it is totally worth the price. It is amazing that this book has not yet received broader coverage. The editor, Sarah Stern, is a long-time Washington insider, so the book tends to be skewed more towards policy than most.

Format: Hardcover
This collection of essays edited by Sarah Stern centers on Saudi Arabia's actions against fundamental values of Western democratic society. It gives a portrait of an extremely anti- democratic society which is working to infiltrate and undermine the educational and political system of the West. It tells of the long- standing unholy alliance between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. It shows how Saudi funds have promoted Terror globally. It presents the picture of an extremely corrupt society whose principal activity externally is in corrupting others. One only has to know a bit about the way Middle Eastern Studies Program have been made into anti- Israel and even anti- American propaganda forums through large gifts of Title Six Money by Saudi Arabia to such schools as Harvard Georgetown Cornell New Mexico and a host of others.
Stern has assembled an outstanding group of writers and scholars James Woolsey, Daniel Pipes, Frank Gaffney, Steven Emerson, Rachel Ehrenfeld among others. They provide us details of a story which should be front- page but somehow is not very much written about and discussed.
A very troubling but extremely important book.

The tentacles of Saudi Arabia are exposed in this well written collection of essays. It is an important read for every student of the middle east, and especially every policy maker in Washington and their staff. Kudos to Ms. Stern for bringing this to light.
