How September 11 was only the most dramatic example of a new breed of terrorism, even now poised to strike again, that was born and nurtured in Saudi Arabia and quietly unleashed on the international community.
The deadly recipe that creates the new terrorism: a broad financial and military network mixed together with a strong motivating ideology that could compel people to sacrifice their lives and commit mass murder. Both of these ingredients grew together in Saudi Arabia, in a movement called Wahhabism.
How Wahhabi preachers in the main mosques of Saudi Arabia justify and support continued hostile acts against the U.S. and the West (translated sermons included).
How prominent Saudi Wahhabi clerics actually justify the 9/11 attacks in publications, which are revealed here and translated.
Shocking evidence of how the Saudis have financed the world’s most dangerous terrorist organizations, including Al-Qaeda and Hamas. Gold reveals the discovery of cancelled Saudi checks found in a Hamas headquarters in the West Bank. Internal Palestinian intelligence and political reports explicitly tie Saudi Arabia to radical Palestinian terrorist groups engaged in suicide bombings. Similar proof of Saudi backing for Islamic militants in Afghanistan, Chechnya, the Balkans, and the U.S. are presented.
Dore Gold connects the dots. He combines a rich knowledge of the history of the Middle East with a decade of hands-on diplomatic experience. If there is a single book that clearly explains Saudi Arabia, the complexities of the Middle East, and the rise of the new global terrorism in one volume, this is the one.
