“This novel sheds light on one of the most overlooked
foreign policy catastrophes of our times -- the flight
of Iraq’s ancient Christian community under siege from al
Qaeda and other extremists. Despite a massive US presence in
Iraq, America’s leaders have proposed no specific
policies to help these defenseless minorities. The forcible
de-Christianization of this pivotal country affects us
all. Without the experience of living alongside
Christians and other non-Muslims at home, what would prepare
Iraqis to peacefully coexist with the West? Ken Timmerman’s riveting
tale is a story in urgent need of telling.”

GUILTY OF 9/11 ATTACKS
2011: A federal judge in Manhattan ruled
yesterday that Iran "shared responsibility" for the 9/11
attacks by providing "material support" - including
military training, travel facilities, money, planning,
safe haven after the attacks. This historic ruling has not yet begun to make
the waves that will come.... Here's the
Daily Caller. More links to background stories are here.

regime and Russia
