Editorial Reviews

Review

"Understanding the sources of funding for terrorism is critical to defeating this threat to our way of life. Sarah N. Stern's book is required reading on this issue."

- John Bolton, former US ambassador to the United Nations

"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."

- Shelley Berkley, US Congresswoman

"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

"This book presents a disturbing picture of Saudi Arabia and of US 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 anti-Semitic 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 of US 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, and author of War and Decision: Inside the Pentagon at the Dawn of the War on Terrorism

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.

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.

No, this is not Islamophobia. Nor is it scare-mongering. This is the subject of a book, Saudi Arabia and the Global Islamic Terrorist Network-America and the West's Fatal Embrace, edited by Sarah N. Stern. The book comprises a series of essays by a number of Middle East experts, such as R. James Woolsey, Steven Emerson, Bat Ye'or, Sarah Stern herself and many more. The authors of these essays describe and meticulously document the financial support for radical Islamic ideas that are subverting our democracy, creating home grown terrorists and influencing the minds of our children.
These essays demonstrate how the tentacles of Saudi Arabian radical Islamic culture penetrate our culture. The preface of the book notes that a memo written by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton, says that Saudi Arabian donors `constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.' Yet many of our politicians describe Saudi Arabia as our `moderate ally.' Saudi funding for present and past politicians may provide the answer for this.
More insidious, though, is the funding that Harvard University received, $20 million, from the Saudi donors. The donors demand that the Middle Eastern studies programs are taught by Middle Easterners, but not Israelis or Jews. Islamic organizations also fund materials and study centers which develop the materials for K through 12 teachers. How did this happen? Through the National Defense Education Act (aka Title VI of the Higher Education Act), regional study centers are required to provide teacher training workshops. These training workshops enable many teachers to receive continuing education credits and thereby, higher salaries.
