Book Summary of Preachers of Hate: Islam and the War on ...

(Hardbound )

Timmerman, an investigative reporter who has written extensively about the Middle East for more than two decades, goes deep inside the Arab world to reveal the depth and extent of anti-Semitic hatred there—and to expose how the “new” anti-Semitism means not just hatred of Jews but also hatred of America and the West.

From Saudi Arabia to Egypt to Lebanon, vicious anti-Semitic and antiAmerican propaganda is spewing forth from the preachers of hate: Muslim clerics, government newspapers, government television networks, and even government officials. Many Muslim leaders are not simply encouraging the hatred; they are actually spending vast sums of money to spread the lies that spawned the terrorists responsible for the September 11 attacks on America, the March 2004 Madrid bombing, and the May 2004 attack that killed six Westerners in Saudi Arabia.

Even more troubling, the hatred has spread throughout Europe and even to the United States. Timmerman has uncovered jaw-dropping examples of this anti-Semitic and anti-American hatred in this country, including at some of our most prestigious universities.

Preachers of Hate shows how the United States is suffering many defeats in the war on terror precisely because we continue to ignore this very real threat.

Editorial Reviews

The Western media commonly report that in much of the Middle East, anti-Zionism has edged into full-blown anti-Semitism, and Timmerman, in this travel journal intermixed with political analysis, gives potent and frightening examples of this phenomenon. The most visceral, and common, illustration he has found in interviewing Middle Eastern clerics, reporters and politicians is the widespread acceptance of the 1895 fraudulent document The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which details an alleged Jewish plot for world domination. Over the past two decades, he reports, the Protocols have become required reading throughout most Arab countries. Equally frightening is his analysis of the anti-Semitic sentiments routinely found in school texts in Arab countries. Timmerman, who has written for Time, Newsweek and Reader's Digest, has a forthright and compelling journalistic style that is also highly opinionated and often inflammatory. Many of his noteworthy reports and observations are undercut by heedless generalizations, such as his comment that "among European limousine liberals... it has become fashionable to [want Israel] punished by the international community, or simply eradicated," which will seem to many to be a gross simplification of a very complicated political reality. When he is not writing about the Middle East, Timmerman takes on such topics as what he sees as anti-Americanism on U.S. university campuses with the same lack of delicacy. MIT linguistics professor Noam Chomsky is described as typifying "the hate-America-first faction of campus radicals" and Timmerman baldly misrepresents his political positions. Timmerman, whose best selling Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson made the bestseller lists but which was frequently and severely criticized for its reliance on incendiary far-right rhetoric, has touched on some important topics in this book, but they are to a large degree lost in his tendency to overgeneralize and overstate.
