    I was not really sure which section to post this in, but this looked like the most appropriate. I have just recently finished reading a book that I consider the most important book that I have read in the past decade, and I read quite bit. The book is;

    Because They Hate by Bridget Gabriel


    If you really want to know what we are up against concerning Islam, this is the book to read. It should be required reading by every high school student and every person entering the military. In the end I believe this may turn out to be a greater threat that Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union during the cold war, chiefly because of its devious nature.

    There is one particular quote in the book that really turned on the light bulb for me and it was something to the effect that “even the Nazis (as bad as they were) did not strap bombs to their own children and send them into groups of innocent civilians”.

    Any way, it is an easy read and really lays out political development of the Middle East in the last 60 years or so.

    I have read this book, just recently in fact. Have it on loan to several other people.( I buy multiple copies when it is something I think people should read) Another book I would recommend is Now They Call Me Infidel by Noni Darwish, an Egyptian woman who was raised a muslim, and is now a US citizen, and also a Christian. Both are very informative and should open people's eyes, as well as their minds, as to how the Islamists think.

    Uhhh . . . the Nazis did in fact use children as front-line soldiers at the end of the war. Of course, at that point, the front lines were either in or near Germany if I'm recalling correctly.

    Agreed, very informative book. Don, the difference is that the Nazis didn't send the kids into restaurants, onto buses, and other civilian targets with bombs strapped to them to blow themselves and others up.

    Yes, children and the old, were generally given a panzerfaust and/or a rifle and told to go take out a tank or shoot as many Americans as possible. To my besk knowledge they weren't strapped with a bomb and told to blow themselves up ... but I'm not sure I'd say that makes them much better as one might argue it's almost as much a "suicide mission" as what the Islamic terrorists are doing in many ways.

    At the end, the nazis were handing out arms to youth & the aged because that was all they had left.

    Furthermore, openly confronting your national enemy, rifle in hand is honorable at any age.

    DO NOT.

    let this thread degenerate into mindless Islam bashing.

    Past history being indicative, I don't have high hopes for that, but the thread's innocent until deemed guilty.

    Thank you geek, I was hoping someone was paying attention to that. However, I will say that there is a fundamental and HUGE difference between putting children on a "battlefield" where they are engaging other 'combatants" and putting bombs on children then sending them in to crowded areas full of people who are NOT COMBATANTS. This is all relative though. Many people of Islam believe that anyone not islamic, or even muslims not strictly following teachings, are the enemy. Meaning, they do not think they are targeting non-combatants. They believe that everyone who is not with them is a combatant.
    While I'm not sure that the "problem" with radical islam is going to be as difficult as Nazi germany, I do believe that it should be watched. Because if there were every to emerge a country strong enough that had the ideals of genocide as many radical islamists do, I think we are all in serious trouble.

    Whether "us" and "them" are defined along religious lines or otherwise, the topic is "Getting them to love their children more that they hate us."
