MUST READ--Fair and Balanced Analysis, not Pakistan-bashing,
By A Customer
This review is from: Who Killed Daniel Pearl? (Hardcover)
I don't usually write reviews on here, but I'm very confused and surprised by another review that accuses this author of Pakistan-bashing and I have to come to his defense. Clearly, when Levy talks about Pakistan as a politically dangerous ally for the US, he is pointing toward verifiable evidence that officials in the Pakistani secret service have connections with Al Qaida and with nuclear arms trading. He isn't condemning the average hardworking Pakistani who wants to make a good life for his family . . . he is condemning the extreme Islamic fundamentalists who preach hatred not only of the West, but also of moderate, peace-loving Muslims.
BH Levy is one of today's most stimulating philosophers and it's shocking to me that he isn't more well known in this country. Europe has long recognized this great mind. Whether or not you agree with his conclusions about the Pearl murder, Levy's work must be taken seriously by policy makers and by anyone who actually cares about the future of our country. In this age of terrorsm, political alliances cannot be taken lightly.
