The War on Terror and Democracy -An Arab American perspective By Neal AbuNab.

It’s been almost five years since the tragic attacks of 9/11 which triggered the War on Terror and initiated a policy of spreading democracy in the Arab and Muslim world.

What has this war achieved so far? How long do we expect it to continue? What does victory look like? These are all legitimate questions that a nation must ask when it declares a war. The public deserves honest answers from its leaders.

The author, a Palestinian American, considers US foreign policy as fundamentally flawed. He sees America’s relationships with other nations as based on the “friendly” factor. If they are our friends, like Israel, they can violate every human right possible and never risk losing our support. US support is not based on mutual respect of international law. He argues that US foreign policy is corrupt because it represents favoritism and nepotism on an international scale.

The book claims that peace is possible and that “it is no mystery America can end this war in 100 days.” But it will require the United States to change its attitude and behavior towards Arab and Muslim nations. Free and democratic elections in the Arab world will inevitably produce Islamist governments such as Hamas in occupied Palestine, allied with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The people of the Arab and Muslim world are angry and hungry. It is a volatile combination that will keep exploding. Till then, we are in for a long and bumpy ride.

“The War on Terror and Democracy” provides a unique Arab insight on how we can get out of this quagmire. It is easy to read and every page promises to be packed with fresh and provocative ideas.
