Misunderstanding of Middle East Culture Wreaking Havoc, Undermining Security Interests

June 30, 2011 (MMD Newswire) - - Former Radical Muslim Walid Shoebat has exposed extremely alarming details about the backgrounds of people in the U.S. Government who have access to State secrets as well as sloppy security clearance polices that have led to many US servicemen and CIA agents deaths at the hands of these infiltrators.

Shoebat says, "I have uncovered strong evidence of federal employees with a Middle East back ground who have close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and - based on the criteria and policies of security clearance laid out by our own government - does not qualify them to have access to hold positions in our government agencies."

"In order to understand fully the threat we face," Shoebat says, "we must evaluate the associations based on the mindset and culture of the Middle East, which is very different from our conceptions here in the West; being from the Middle East myself, I can say we here in America are oblivious to the grave threat because of our misreading of the Middle Eastern culture."

During his lectures he uncovers much of the sectarian teaching used to recruit an ongoing stream of terrorists. Keith has worked for six years promoting Mr. Shoebat and through his efforts promoting Walid, Kamal and other FFMU speakers, these vital messages have reached tens of millions of people based on standardized media audience ranking.

This book picks up where the best selling book Liberty and Tyranny left off, a Judeo Christian polemic on why God is vital in the equation of freedom for America and humanity. Best-selling author Walid Shoebat and his son Ted Shoebat (only 18 years old at the time of publication) have written an extraordinary book on anti-God ideologies, comparing them to countries that base their laws on Judeo Christian principals. As America and many Western nations seem to desire to move away from their Judeo Christian foundations and embrace multi-culturalism, this book gives all the answers to dispel all the anti-God myths and equip people to stand for their Judeo Christian heritage.
