Item description for The Revenge of the Prophet: How Clinton and His Predecessors Empowered Radical Islam by Vojin Joksimovich & Gregory Copley...
The subject of 9/11 root causes did not receive due attention in the 9/11 Commission report. Islamism, the radical fusion of religion and politics with jihad at its center, is an obvious root cause. Islamist ideology is centered on reintroduction of a caliphate, an Islamic super-state governed by Islamic Sharia law. In the post Cold War era, Islamism has been competing with the U.S.-led globalization ideology for world domination. The primary tool for the long-term expanion of Islamism is proselytism of Islam, Saudi Wahhabi Islam in particular. Terrorism is a tactic of asymmetric warfare, a great cost-effective equalizer, causing huge political and economic impact on a short-term basis. The Islamist terrorist networks flouished and grew exponentially during the Clinton era. The President's lack of resolve to fight terrorism and his turning a blind eye to radical Islam fueled the rise of Osama bin Laden from isolation and obscurity to a planetary hydra-like monster. The track record qualifies Clinton to be characterized as the Neville Chamberlain of the 1990s. His predecessors going back to President Roosevelt in 1945 have also contributed a great deal to empower radical Islam.

Essential background on the rise of radical political Islam Dec 17, 2006
Once again polymath Dr. Joksimovich has authored a book notable for its deep research and thought-provoking analysis. Dr. Joksimovich illustrates in impressive detail how Islamic extremist terrorism was brought to life by U.S. support for the most retrograde elements in Afghanistan during the 1980s (the most massive CIA operation in history), and how this movement that the Western world helped to create turned into a classic case of blowback. Through mismanagement, the U.S. focus on short-term (and short-sighted) goals in its intervention in the Balkans and its blind support for Saudi Arabia has only fed this growing movement, the consequences of which we are paying for today. The Bush Administration's reckless invasion of Iraq, based, like the war on Yugoslavia, on deliberate lies, has only given Al Qaeda and like-minded movements a rallying cause with which to recruit many new adherents. 'The Revenge of the Prophet' documents these and many other disturbing developments in hard-hitting fashion. A book not to be missed.
The Roots of Radical Islam Dec 16, 2006
After the communism and fascism, western culture ideals and the way of life are threatened, more than ever, by an aggressive and uncompromising religion. Radical Moslems want to conquer the world and impose their laws based on Dark Ages standards. And they have no respect for human life. They want to convert the rest of the world to their religion and destroy those who resist.
Helped by an infusion of enormous amounts of western capital, radical Islam, out of an irrelevant religious movement, has become a major threat to the West.
With the precision of an engineer, Dr. Joksimovich in his book "The Revenge of the Prophet" analyzed historical facts, explained the radicalization of Islamic countries and the goals of Jihadists. His book is a must read for those who want to understand present political situation in the world and specifically in the Middle East and Balkans.
Revenge of the Prophet Nov 20, 2006
Dr. Joksimovich's book is an excellent and well researched account on the rise of Radical Islam. Most people in the West "noticed" militant Islamists only after 9/11, not realizing that there was a planned strategy in place long before 9/11. This book gives a historic review of when and how it all began and how it progressed to what it is now: The biggest threat to the democratic world since the II World War and Nazis. When reading the Revenge of the Prophet it becomes clear how our own foreign affairs "experts" in the period from 1992-1999 helped the rise of Osama bin Laden during the wars in the former Yugoslavia by making decisions without taking into consideration long term consequences. Very interesting book and I highly recommend it.

Did we, the US, sacrifice the middle east to win the cold war? To this end, did we empower and help radicalize Islam and the historically moderate countries in the middle east? Have we allowed radical Islam to get a foothold in Europe, creating a staging ground for terrorism throughout Europe? Has the war in Irac had the opposite intended effect by further radicalizing the middle east?
This book deals with these serious issues by giving a detailed historical perspective on Islam, the countries of the middle east, the key groups and figures who shaped this region, and the current policies that are shaping it now. In fact, the information in this book is so well researched and documentated that I doubt you could find more current or pertinent information on this subject outside of a CIA file. And, if they are not currently doing so, the CIA should be using this book as a primer on the middle east for all staff/personnel.
Radical Islam is on the rise, and Mr. Joksimovich makes it crystal clear that this ideology is a fundamental threat to western ideals and culture. It is radical Islams' stated goal to destroy western culture and religion. Not since Nazi Germany has the world faced a greater threat, and just like then we cannot afford to lose this war.
If you value the freedoms western culture has provided you, you must read this book.
On Islamism May 29, 2006
If you read "The Revenge" carefully you will find the book written very much straight foreword,with dates,places and people ,full with data and facts that does not live much room to reader for speculation ,in short The Islamists road is narrow and the ultimate goal is the destruction of the two other great religions Judaism and Christianity as we know it.It was interesting to learn that last century "birthed" three "great movements" :Nazism and Black shirts, Fascism and the Brown shirts and Islamism and the Green shirts.The world and societies of the past dealt pretty successfully with the first two ..the third survived and is a great problem of this century.Needles to say , it has to be defeated by positive forces ,all the same ones that defeated Nazism and Fascism.
