After the 9/11 Commission concluded in 2004 that the U.S. was engaged in a war with terrorists and never realized it, they reasoned that "a failure of imagination" had prevented us from seeing it coming. But after billions of dollars and almost a decade of fighting in the Middle East, will we miss the boat again? Walid Phares, Fox News terrorism and Middle East expert and a specialist in global strategies, argues that a race for control of the Middle East is on. Yet not a failure of imagination, but rather, of education has left Americans without essential information on the real roots of the rising threat. In fact, the West ignores the wide and disparate forces within the Muslim world--including a brotherhood against democracy that is fighting to bring the region under totalitarian control--and crucially underestimates the determined generation of youth feverishly waging a grassroots revolution toward democracy and human rights.--From publisher description
