From the Inside Flap

"Death to America!"

Years before September 11, our enemy warned us--and we weren't listening. We are being warned today--by enemies like Iran, North Korea, and radicals and terrorists across the globe--but we are still not listening.

Sounding the alarm is bestselling author Jed Babbin (former deputy undersecretary of defense), who exposes the demagogues, dictators, and death squads openly threatening America--with potentially devastating consequences, if we aren't alert to the danger.

Full of stunning detail, In the Words of Our Enemies reveals:

* What the Islamists themselves are saying about their plans for America--mass murder followed by imposition of Islamic sharia law

* How Venezuela's Hugo Chavez is leading a radical anti-American revolution that aims to organize the world's oil supplies against America

* Why China's plans go beyond regional hegemony to driving the United States out of the Pacific

* How even so-called "friendly" countries, like Russia, are conspiring against us

* How many countries have threatened to use nuclear weapons against America (it's more than you think)

Highlighting our enemies' own words, Jed Babbin gives you, the reader, an insider's intelligence report on the dangers we face. In the Words of Our Enemies gives you the knowledge you need to be forewarned and forearmed in defending America.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for those wanting to understand our enemies, their goals and the means they are willing to employ to achieve them. From South American dictators to China and the Middle East, this is the first book I have read that lets our enemies speak for themselves, and what they have to say should be a wake up call for all Americans. Rather than listen to the rants of the left or the right, listen to our enemies, they are clear, consise and dedicated in their cause of killing the American way of life. A great read all around.

44 of 49 people found the following review helpful By Craig Matteson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on June 26, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This chilling book simply presents English translations of what the Islamofacists (or Jihadists, or whatever you want to call them) are saying to each other and what they are preaching to their people. It is quite different than much of what they say to us when they speak in English. True, there are some of the extremists who are quite forthright about their desire to bring about the collapse of America, Britain, and Israel, but rarely will you hear the kind of plain speaking one can read in these pages.

The anti-Americanism is deep and profound as is the anti-Jewish sentiment. Some say that they don't hate Christians and Jews because they are the people of the Book. Well, what is said here certainly raises some questions about that hyperbole. They cannot both be true and I think one can trust what they say at home more than what they say to us.

This also raises questions about our own media and why we rarely get these hate filled words reported to us more regularly and more honestly. Are our media trying to coddle us into their preferred point of view? Rather, shouldn't they report the news and views from around the world and let us decide what to think about what is being said to and about us?

However, the Jihadists only occupy the first seven chapters. China, Putin's Russia, North Korea, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez each get their own chapters. Again, their words for home consumption are much more frank about their intentions than we usually get in our own newspapers and television news.

Get this book, read it, and then talk about it with your friends. Once you are aware of this material, you will view the news coverage you watch and read somewhat differently. Jed Babbin also provides good web sources such as MEMRI that provide material from the Jihadist sites and often provide us with English translations.

36 of 40 people found the following review helpful By Caesar M. Warrington on July 11, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Over the last several years books like Babbin's have been popping up like cousins at a lottery winner's home. The message is the same with most of them:
"America stands alone in a global struggle for freedom and 'Judeo-Christian' civilization (whatever that means) against the forces of evil Islamo-fascism (again, whatever that means)!"
There is much truth in the sentiments of that statement, but there is also much fear-mongering. The end result of such a deluge of books like these leaves most people, unfortunately, susceptible to cynicism and wary of the motivations (and funding) of whoever writes them.

Jed Babbin's book is different. Babbin's book concentrates on the writings and transcripts of a host of folks whose opinions of the United States runs from mild disdain to passionate hatred.

What should be most appreciated about IN The WORDS Of OUR ENEMIES is that --unlike someone such as Mark Steyn, for example-- Babbin doesn't merely harp on Islamist fanaticism. There are chapters devoted to the Russians, Latin Americans, Koreans and Chinese. Babbin's reporting on the anti-Americanism of the Chinese is really what won me over in the end. He is one of the few right-wing commentators out there who has the foresight and guts to call the Chinese what they truly are: A people and nation who hold little if any appreciation for America, its people, or culture. He makes it quite clear that China is an expansionist rival for political and economic dominance, a nation which will be the cause of many of our problems in the near future. As someone who feels that the true threat to our way of life is China, I appreciate his position on this matter.

Whether you are of the Left or Right, or any shade in between, this is a book worth reading.

Format: Hardcover
Mr. Babbin has given us another literary gift - a blueprint for what all Americans who care about safety and security must know for our long-term survival - understanding and carefully studing our adversaries. Trust me, the bad guys and our enemies know more about us than we do. So, while the elites in our country continue to support living in a fantasy land the enemies have crossed the borders, broken into our computer systems, and are killing us economically. Read Jed Babbin's book if you care about the roof over your head, being taken seriously as a woman, and appreciate all the gifts this great nation has to offer.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides a valuable insight into people whose every waking moment is dedicated to the destruction of America and the American way of life, and its value comes from the fact that it is unfiltered. What you get in this book is from the mouths of those who said it. You can choose to ignore this book but you do so at your and our peril. In this book Mr. Babbin is telling us what our enemies are plotting against us by writing down what they have said--not what he says they said. All too often warnings of threats are not heeded because the source was biased or dubious. Here the sources are unimpeachable, which makes this a must read.
