HERETICS. WHY ISLAM MUST CHANGE TO JOIN THE MODERN WORLD is Ayaan Hirsi Ali's latest book, published in America and in Dutch Translation in the Netherlands. It is a well written, very clear and most courageous book that should be widely read, studied and taken to heart. Islamic Terrorism and Jihad are rooted in the Coran and cannot be explained away - as U.S. President Obama did - as violence caused by unemployment, discrimination or other economic and social circumstances.
Attached I reprint the Prologue to my book, Western Cooperation, to re-emphasize what 9/11 should have taught us: the world is confronted with a new type of war, with deep roots in history; not just a war between Sunnite and Shiíte Muslims, but just as much a war against the rest of the world, Christians and Jews in particular.
