Reversing a downward trend,
This review is from: The Fight of Our Lives: Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth, and Choosing to Win the War Against Radical Islam (Hardcover)
Ten years ago, when radical Islamist terrorist used three U.S. airplanes to kill nearly three thousand of our countrymen, America was angry. It was a justified anger that gave focus and generated clear objectives and a willingness to meet them. Through ten years of practiced tolerance, political correctness, appeasement, and complacency, many of our nation's top political and military leaders will scarcely utter the word "terrorism" or the ideology that fuels it, "radical Islam."As Bennett and Leibsohn explain, that conviction is what prompted them to write their latest book.
The book sounds a wakeup call alerting America to the danger in our midst. The authors weave three primary goals throughout the book. The first is to be clear about whom they describe is our enemy. Using current events, quotes from journalists, politicians, and military leaders, the authors describe the nature and goals of radical Islam. The second goal is to generate some anger. Not rage or violence, but rather an anger that forces a certain clarity. Their third goal is to call people to rediscover their American heritage. By regaining these three things, the authors believe we can win this war.
The book is strong, direct, and hard hitting. You may not agree with everything the authors say, but they will open your eyes and make you think.
