 About the Book 

Terrorism is nothing new- it has always been there as history teaches us. In ancient times tribes terrorized each other, in the 12th century the Christian knights terrorized the Palestinians and the French terrorized the Protestants in the 17thMoreTerrorism is nothing new- it has always been there as history teaches us. In ancient times tribes terrorized each other, in the 12th century the Christian knights terrorized the Palestinians and the French terrorized the Protestants in the 17th century. In the 1970s and 1980s the Baader-Meinhoff Gang and the Italian Red Army terrorized Western Europe. Palestinian terrorists added their own handy work to the scene. Hundreds were killed- planes blown up and politicians assassinated but the Europeans managed to bring the situation under control. Todays terrorism is more than Osama bin Laden or Al Qaida alone. There is the Palestinian problem, Iraq, Kashmir, Somalia, the Tamil Tigers, Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines and many more. This book identifies the worlds terrorist hotspots and looks at the causes behind terrorism and what can be done about it. It also looks extensively at Islam, at Americas dependence on Middle East oil and the role of the Jewish Lobby in Washington DC. Can America win the war, or are we heading for the final battle between good and evil which according to the Bible (Revelations 16:16) will take place in Israels Armageddon?
