AND THEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE
Richard Engle, NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent who has covered the Middle East for the past twenty years, has just put out a book titled:
AND THEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE,
This is a must read book for anyone wishing to understand the complex issues of the Muslim world that seriously affect the rest of the global community.
Engle begins with a history of the Middle East and the factors that have led to the religious fanaticism that has co-opted the Muslim faith.
He accounts a fascinating story of his own immersion into the Arab culture; and reveals his understanding of the political, social and religious beliefs driving the violence of today’s complex and diverse Middle Eastern Muslim societies.
Usually when I am reading at night my mind will start to blank out and I know it is bed time. I started Engle’s book and had to force myself to lay it down and go to bed at midnight.
Again; a must read to be intelligently informed on a part of the world that is holding hostage, with a threat of violence, all free thinking people.
