How Saudi Arabia Supports the New Global Terrorism By Dore Gold (309 Pages)Publisher: Regnery Pub., 2003
In Hatred's Kingdom Middle East expert, Dore Gold former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, provides the startling evidence of how Saudi Arabia not only is linked to terror but in fact has spawned the current wave of global terrorism. Using previously unpublished documents, Gold exposes how the deeply ingrained hatred that has provoked the new terrorism has its roots in Saudi Arabia's dominant religious creed, a radical Islamic offshoot known as Wahhabism. Gold also reveals that the Saudis have provided terrorists with manpower and seemingly endless supplies of money. Shocking evidence is given: canceled checks, payment schedules to families of suicide bombers, high-level intelligence reports and much more. Gold reproduces numerous sermons and writings of the prominent Saudi Wahhabi clerics that justify and support past and continuing hostile acts including September 11.
Through meticulous research, Dore Gold connects the dots, tapping into his rich knowledge of the history of the Middle East and his years of hands-on diplomatic experience. He also shows what is being overlooked in the current war on terror.
