Overview

Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America by Brigitte Gabriel

"Her writing is eloquent and her passion tremendous."

Publishers Weekly

"Brigitte Gabriel's words should be read, and studied carefully, by all the law enforcement and government officials of the West — as well as by everyone who values freedom."

— Robert Spencer, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)

Brigitte Gabriel lost her childhood to militant Islam, when militant Muslims from throughout the Middle East poured into Lebanon and declared jihad against the Lebanese Christians. Because They Hate warns that the US is threatened by fundamentalist Islamic theology in the same way Lebanon was— radical Islam will stop at nothing short of domination of all non-Muslim countries.

Fiercely articulate and passionately committed, Because They Hate tells Gabriel's personal story as well as outlines the history, social movements, and religious divisions that have led to this critical historical conflict.

BRIGITTE GABRIEL is a US-based journalist and news producer who started her career as an anchor for World News, an evening Arabic news program. As a terrorism expert and the founder of the nonprofit organization ACT! for America, Brigitte Gabriel travels widely and speaks regularly on topics related to the Middle East. She has addressed audiences at the FBI, the United States Special Operations Command, the Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, and the Joint Forces Staff College, among others.

Brigitte has done an exceptional job detailing her life in a war against Christians. She and I lived the same war; we are the same age; faced similar fears and persecution, though we lived in different parts of the country. She does indeed speak out what we think. As Christians, we try to forgive and move on with our lives. But few muslims who truly hate anything non-muslim are being the voice for all muslims. I have had debates with Muslims and Jews alike. She is correct. Muslims responds with hate and ugliness; they don't care to hear what you have to say. Jews on the other hand respect your opinion and offer their opposing view. I have very close muslims friends. I trust them with my life. But they are not the majority. Good people, good heart, but like most all of us humans(christians, jews or muslims) they don't speak up when they should. If their religion is being misrepresented, it is their job, not the chrsitians or jews, to work hard to defend it and protect it from the extremists within them. It is truly as simple as she says, prove her wrong, prove us wrong. Until Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria and the like countries defend and protect the freedom of Christians and Jews to worship in their countries and preach Jesus and Moses, they have absolutely no leg to stand on when they do little to keep extremists from attacking the Twin towers and our way of lives in America. And to top it of, they still complain that we are being racists and extremists. The facts do speak for themselves. The Christians of Lebanon fought to protect their faith and voice in the middle east. Today however, they are very split; some have allegience to Saudi Arabia while others to Hizbollah/Iran. Maybe it is a survival mode, but there was a time when Christians were the few, the good and the undefeated. Not today. Lebanon is the last Christian country in the Middle East by which its president has to be Christian. It is a Republican form of government. What other country in the "arab world" can claim that. We see what Iran is doing to its people. We saw what Iraq did to its people (irrespective of your view of the war today). We see what Syria does to its people. Yet, they come to America, supposedly to run away from that culture only to impose it on us.

Just finished reading this book. It was hard to put it down. Yes, America, we better wake up. The writing is on the wall. September 11,2001 changed America, but how soon did some Americans forget. If we don't rememeber our past, we are doomed to repeat it.

Every American should read this book, and own two or more copies of it. One to keep and annotate, one to circulate to friends and family. Ms. Gabriel's story needed to be told, she did it well, without frills or prejudice. It is all verifiable. Her point of view is unique and priceless. - Duke

This riveting, first person account of militant islam's take over of Lebanon is a true wake up call. Gabriel shows how an open, tolerant society is an easy target for an organized attack of this sort. The approach has been perfected over the centuries. This book is an eye opener for those in America who simply don't understand the depth of attack occurring in our schools, political institutions and our courts. Wake up!

Ms. Gabriel knows whereof she speaks as a person who has experienced the trauma of seeing her country taken over by Muslims. Those who call her writing 'garbage' are those with their 'heads in the sand,' not allowing the facts to interfere with their beliefs. I found her to be a true patriot. Oh, that we native citizens had just a smidgen of her love and concern for her adopted country. As one writer noted, Arabs contributed much to our society 'once upon a time.' But since they have become oil-rich, little creativity has come from the Middle East (other than Israel) - unless you call suicide bombing creative.

I think it's very sad that this author generalizes and says 'because they hate.' Obviously she is not over a bad situation that happened to her growing up, which is why she wanted to add fuel to the fire. Really aweful book, I didn't feel like it was fair in talking about Islam and Moslims. Not worth reading if you really want to learn about who the Moslims are.

This is a book written by a woman who is still that hurt and frightened little girl she once was. Gabriel hasn't grown up, nor has she been properly educated... Her knowledge of history is sadly lacking. She doesn't even truly understand (as much as one can such things) the civil war that took place in Lebanon. Her sources are terrible! She mostly tries to quote websites (any college educated person should know that websites, if cited should be left to only a very, very, few). Where are the primary sources? Even if you were to look up her sources you would see she paraphrases beyond what would be acceptable! She changes important facts to stories! Many of the links cited no longer show up (such is the way of the internet) but that just makes one have to question even more how she quoted or paraphrased from such sites. If this is what is to become of scholarly work in the future, God help us all!

In the last 100 years, can you name one Chrisyain terrorist group that killed Muslims? Or a Jewish terrorist group? NOT 50 NOT 100, ONE. Muslim terrorist groups do that all the time. And no I am not an islamophbic. I only fear radical Islam.

I had forgotten about the devastation of the war in Lebanon. It was an good reminder that there were democracies there in this century and that Christians and Muslims lived side by side. The author has an inside view which is very enlightening.

This survivor of the Lebanese Civil War details her struggle to stay alive. Her experiences and love of Western Civilization juxtaposed against the destruction of Islamic Fundamentalism illustrates the need for the world to wake up and face the deadly threat of terrorism.

This book is good for explaining the forces of hate that are coming against America, but for the average reader, there are too many details that begin to run together and all sound the same from about the middle of the book to the end. I totally agree with the author, but feel that too many facts crammed into the book becomes redundant. Her point could have been made with the collective facts spread over fewer chapters and then moved on to other facts such as explaining more about how these forces treat women and children, how they infiltrate homes and society in general, and how they convince those suicide bombers to actually carry through their evil intentions. Are these people so illiterate that they believe anything? In response to "I Am Amazed"; one only has to examine the nightly news to know that the Muslim religion is a force of evil despite those who would try to make the "politically correct" acceptance of such war-mongering. It is the same thing Hitler did....tell the biggest lie you can think of to cover your tracks and the people will believe it because the truth is just too difficult to accept.
