THE FIGHT OF OUR LIVES by William J. Bennett & Seth Leibsohn

The subtitle of this book is “Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth & Choosing to Win the War Against Radical Islam.”   This book is so deep with so much information, I think the only way to give it a good review is to give a couple of direct quotes. This is such a serious subject!

“Not long after 9/11 we were. as a people, angry.  Not vicious or violent, but angry.  Today we have become sad and depressed and confused, and too many have replaced our concept of evil with all manner of diagnoses of syndromes and root causes.  Too many of us either whitewashed the Islamic threat, turned our heads away from it, ignored it, or, in some cases, bought the excuse of it–namely that there are serious Muslim grievances with America and they are justified, or that, in the absence of such justification, they need appeasement and understanding.” (page 136)

“The thought seems to be that if we speak nicely of Islam and ignore the terrorism it can produce, then Islamists will respect us more or lay down their swords. Such an understanding flies in the face of everything Islamists have told us; they want our defeat, not a refurbished détente that comes with soft language and retreat.” (page 104)

This book is a must read for every American, especially, those that have the thinking that was stated above.  America, we need to wake up before it is too late.

I would like to thank Book Sneeze, a division of Thomas Nelson for giving me a complementary copy of this book to read and write this review.
