Why The West Has Failed To Contain Islamic Fundamentalism



“Jihad's New Heartlands” is a ground breaking book offering an insightful and thorough analysis of the most important territories where Islamic fundamentalism has taken a foothold. The author, Gabriel G Tabarani, thanks to his combination of thorough research, wide-ranging travel and extensive experience in the field provides a thorough historical, political and social analysis of the key variables, historical events and most importantly their potential consequences.

This extensive and well-documented study, across many of the world's foremost and pertinent Islamic fundamentalist breeding grounds such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, The Levant (Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Jordan), and The Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia), offers the reader an in depth look at the context of Islamic Fundamentalism's rise in prominence, profile and destabilising potential. This analysis is extended to Muslim populations living in Europe, Russia and America helping to explain the causes for the West’s failure to contain Islamic extremism both at home and abroad.

Jihad's New Heartlands, in addition to being written by one of the region’s foremost experts, is a must read for any person wanting to understand the causes of Islamic Fundamentalism’s rise and the consequences of its ascent in an increasingly globalised yet unstable world.


Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: From Balfour Promise To Bush Declaration

The Complications And The Road For A Lasting Peace



Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: From Balfour Promise to Bush Declaration: THE COMPLICATIONS AND THE ROAD FOR A LASTING PEACE



In the coming five to ten years, the highest number of key global security challenges is likely to be concentrated in the Middle East, or be related to it. And the traditional most significant challenge in the Middle East is the Arab-Israeli conflict and its core, the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians. It is a center of gravity around which the region has revolved, and remains of vast political and symbolic significance. Both in its own right and due to its (positive or negative) signaling effects, reinvigoration of the peace process is a key challenge for regional and international policy-makers in the coming years.

So, what is the origin of this Israeli-Palestinian old conflict? Why did we reach this point in that region? Who to blame? How we can find a just solution? What will be the consequences if the conflict is not resolved? Can a viable state be made in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip?

Gabriel Tabarani, who is a specialist on Middle East affairs, will try to find the answers in this book where he takes us back to that region through its history and facts, analyzes some turning points in it, which affected that region, discovers the causes and the important aspects of the conflict and the obstacles to peace.  He presents all current events details and information from both sides of this conflict. Furthermore this book offers some recommendations on how we can solve this conflict, gives the light on all events and tries to answer all questions in a fair and balanced way.



How Iran Plans To Fight America And Dominate The Middle East

With the creeping possibility of a nuclear breakout, its vigorous sponsorship of international non-state armed groups and its escalating intervention next door in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories; the Islamic Republic of Iran is a triple threat - at least - to international security and America and Western’s Middle Eastern interests. Indeed, perhaps no country, according to the West, fits the definition of rogue state as well as Iran does. Making matters worse, Iran’s confidence and clout in the region - and beyond - are indubitably on the rise.

But that is only the beginning. Shiite Persian Iran is not content with being just an inconsequential pariah. Iran has grand ambitions. Tehran wants to be the predominant state in the Middle East, replacing the United States as the region’s power broker and lording over its Sunni Arab neighbours. With the fall of its most fearsome competitors for regional pre-eminence – Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Afghanistan’s Taliban - Iran is unabashedly reasserting itself on the international stage.

Buoyed by high energy prices, emboldened by continuing American challenges in Iraq and Afghanistan, encouraged by consistent, unimpeded progress in its nuclear program and the increased influence of its extremist allies - Hamas and Hizbollah - Iran has its eye on becoming the regional hegemony.  

So the question here: How Iran plans to fight America, Israel and the West and dominate the Middle East?

Gabriel G. Tabarani, who is an Expert on Middle East Affairs, will try to give the answer on this question in this book through a fair and balanced information, analysis, arguments, examination, and recommendations which will clear every point concerning the Iranian ambitions and the USA strategy to confront them.
