'In eloquent and passionate prose, Caroline Glick examines some of the most important and troubling issues facing Israel and the world. Her message is clear and coherent: Islamic fundamentalism is the greatest challenge facing the West today.' --Benjamin Netanyahu, Former Minister of Finance and Former Prime Minister of Israel
'In a world of self-deception and the desire to find false comfort by escaping the challenges facing the free world and Israel, it is important to hear the sober voice of Caroline Glick which reminds us that the real answers to building a secure world are based on values and not in immediate political gratification.' --Natan Sharansky, Distinguished Senior Fellow, the Shalem Center, Jerusalem, Israel
'Caroline is the sharpest of commentators on Israel and the region - withering in her critique, and all too often vindicated.' --David Horovitz, Editor in Chief, The Jerusalem Post
