The Middle East: Where Political Correctness Can Kill
The Middle East: it’s a region that’s almost never off the front pages, yet many Americans know surprisingly little about it. Even worse, our “understanding” of this turbulent region has been undermined by the lies and clichés broadcast by the liberal media. Now, in The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Middle East, veteran Middle East correspondent Martin Sieff unravels this tumultuous region’s past, present, and possible future. Beginning with the Ottoman Empire and leading up to 2008, Sieff navigates every politically correct roadway, busting myth after myth as he leads us on a journey through one of the world’s roughest neighborhoods.
Filled with historical lessons and essential facts, this controversial new “P.I.G.” demonstrates why knowing the Middle East’s past is vital to understanding—and solving—the region’s problems today. Discover why:
* Western-style democracy will not fix Iraq’s problems
* President Bush’s quest for Israeli-Palestinian peace is misguided
* Islamic fundamentalism isn’t ancient—which is why it’s so dangerous
* Bush Sr.—not Bush Jr.—should have invaded Iraq
If you want to know the whole story behind the Middle East, including who our friends and enemies really are then The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Middle East is for you.
