Product Sub Title:
Israel and the Global Jihad
Gefen Publishing House
Islamic supremacism, European cultural disaggregation, American vacillation, and Israeli timidity and confusion. These are the main social contexts that inform political and strategic developments of global and national affairs in our times.
In her biweekly commentaries, Caroline B. Glick, the formidable Jerusalem Post columnist, highlights these underlying trends while analyzing events as they unfold both globally and in Israel.
This extraordinary collection of her probing and eloquent work is a must read for all who care about winning the war against the multifarious forces of global jihad.
'In eloquent and passionate prose, Caroline Glick examines some of the most important and troubling issues facing Israel and the world. Her message is clear and coherent: Islamic fundamentalism is the greatest challenge facing the West today.' Benjamin Netanyahu Former Minister of Finance and Former Prime Minister of Israel
'In a world of self-deception and the desire to find false comfort by escaping the challenges facing the free world and Israel, it is important to hear the sober voice of Caroline Glick which reminds us that the real answers to building a secure world are based on values and not in immediate political gratification.'
Natan Sharansky Distinguished Senior Fellow, the Shalem Center
'Caroline is the sharpest of commentators on Israel and the region - withering in her critique, and all too often vindicated.' David Horovitz, Editor in Chief, the Jerusalem Post
If your taste runs to appreciating skillful and direct confrontation of cant, duplicity, appeasement, and wishful thinking – along the lines of the writings in the 1930s of George Orwell and Winston Churchill, but on today's manifestations of the issues those men confronted so brilliantly – then you've got the right book in hand.
– R. James Woolsey, Former Director of Central Intelligence From the introction by R. James Woolsey, Former Director of Central Intelligence
Some of the things you’ll find in this collection: *A superb essay on the parallels and differences between Woodrow Wilson and George W. Bush;
*A fresh and subtle assessment of the politics of Holocaust denial;
*A forthright interview with Jonathan Pollard and an insightful assessment of the implications of his case – “I fell in love with two women – Israel and the U.S. It doesn’t work in private life and it doesn’t work in politics.”
*An assessment of the reasons behind academic cowardice, as manifested in such places as Cambridge University’s Clare College;
*An analysis of enemy propaganda creeping into the broadcasts of U.S.-government-funded al Hurra (“more extreme [on some issues] than al-Jazeera”);
*A careful analysis of demographics in the Near East that contradicts the conventional wisdom;
*A discussion of the battle over language in public discourse and its importance, (i.e., what does it mean when terrorists are called “militants?”);
*Bravery and straight talk by Pope Benedict XVI and Ayaan Hirsi Ali;
*An American officer reading to his men from the Book of Joel on the eve of the invasion of Iraq: “The Lord thunders at the head of His army”;
*A good definition of peace: When an Israeli woman reporter can feel “as safe in a 5-star Kuwaiti hotel as with the U.S. Army [in combat].”
...Glick concludes this remarkable collection [of articles] with a call for Jews – and indeed for all of us who live in a civilization guided by the concepts of liberty and the rule of law... that Judaism has given the world – to emulate Pope Benedict in his “willingness to judge.” She does. So should we.
About the Author Chicago native Caroline B. Glick, moved to Israel in 1991 after receiving her BA in Political Science from Columbia University, and joined the Israeli army where she served as an officer for five and a half years. In her last three years of military service, Glick was a core member of Israel’s negotiating team with the PLO. She was later appointed to serve as then Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s assistant foreign policy advisor.
After leaving government in 1998, Glick received a Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. She then returned to Israel where she was hired as a senior commentator and editor at Makor Rishon newspaper (Hebrew). In 2002, Glick joined the Jerusalem Post as senior columnist and deputy managing editor. During Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 she was one of the only female journalists on the front lines with US infantry forces, reporting for the Jerusalem Post, Maariv, Israel TV’s Channel 2 and the Chicago Sun Times.
Ms. Glick writes two regularly syndicated weekly columns for the Jerusalem Post and a monthly column for the Jewish Press. Her writings, which have also been published in the Wall Street Journal, National Review, the Boston Globe, the Chicago Sun Times, the Washington Times, and other leading magazines and newspapers, focus on the strategic and political issues challenging Israel and the United States.
Ms. Glick is the senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC. In 2003, Ma’ariv named her the most prominent woman of the year in Israel. In December 2005, she was awarded the Ben Hecht award for Middle East reporting from the Zionist Organization of America. In January 2006, she was awarded the Abramowitz Prize for Media Criticism by Israel Media Watch.
