"For more than a century, much of the attention given to the Middle East has focused on the Arab-Israeli conflict. The rise of a Palestinian offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Resistance Movement or Hamas, transformed the nature of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. The dispute, in the view of Hamas, is not over a division of Palestine, but rather about Jews ruling over Muslims and the presence of Jews on Islamic land. However, this Islamic-Jewish conflict is not simply confined to the Middle East. Muslim terrorist attacks have been directed at Jews all around the world, from Europe to Asia to Latin America. Radical Muslims in countries in Europe are becoming more brazen, particularly in France, where the Muslims constitute nearly ten percent of the population. In just the last year, there have been several Muslim attacks on Jews throughout France. Death to the Infidels documents the growth of radical Islam in the Middle East and how it has transformed what had primarily been a political conflict into a one-sided religious war pitting radical Muslims against Jews around the world--particularly in Israel--the most important implication of this shift being the limitation of prospects for peace and the expectation of the radicals that the destruction of Israel is just the first step toward reconstituting a global Muslim empire"-- Provided by publisher.
