The second little gem that emerged from this important book is this question: what standards of scholarship exist in the Muslim world that would allow men of advanced degrees, academicians, professors, journalists, heads of state and leaders of the most important institutions of society to believe and disseminate such an absurd collection of wacko, lunatic theories that now consume the fetid minds of the Islamic world. From the utterly stupid, but widely reported stories of Jews distributing AIDS laced chewing gum to children; to the foolish notion of Jewish blood pastries; to the newest idiocy to sweep the universities of Islam: Holocaust Denial. It is as if entire nations were being led by the most ignorant collections of back-woods, hood-wearing, good old boys who, instead of being rejected utterly for their racism and stupidity are given credence and legitimacy on the world's stage. Does the King of Saudi Arabia also believe that the moon is made of cheese? Are the Universities of Egypt convening symposia to discuss why ships don't fall when they reach the edge of the flat earth? And exactly how many Syrian Generals does it take to screw in a light bulb?
The Truth matters and the world is burning wherever silly men are allowed to tell lies to support their irrational hatred of Jews or Israel or Bush or the US or (insert object of hatred by lunatic fringe conspiracy theorists here). Read Timmerman and be amazed.
Well documented, and organized, it is an excellent source for real information.

This "hatred" being expounded as an alleged "new anti-Semitism" that is described as targeting not only Jews but Americans and the West in general.
This study impresses an urgency upon the reader whilst it investigates the depth of this alleged "hatred" concentrating mostly on the Arab world, the Middle East and Europe but exemplifying the effects that the issue has in relation to American values and lifestyles.
Drawing upon the considerable history of this subject and quoting many religious, secular, educational and media sources, the reader is presented with a chilling scrutiny of how the young people being brought up within such cultures today are allegedly being "brainwashed" and "indoctrinated" with a fervent hatred that is described as even being reinforced by what are cited as the "official government-sanctioned Arab media" distributed throughout the Middle East & the International community as a whole.
References of particular note towards the end of this presentation are the inclusion of what are cited as a Friday sermon broadcast on official Palestinian Authority TV, the Palestinian Hamas Charter and the PLO's "phased plan" to eradicate the Jewish state of Israel. The contents of these references shown in the book to mirror the "hatred" which is at the very core of this study.
Although in excess of 300 pages, this book is extremely well written and very easy to read. The concern of the source permeates the text and a creditable objectivity is obtained. Might I respectfully recommend to interested persons two other books entitled "Peace; The Arabian Caricature" by Arieh Stav and "American Prophecies" by Michael D. Evans. Thank you for your courtesy and time.
