How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist IslamBook - 2005
Backed by extensive archival research and interviews with dozens of policy makers and CIA, Pentagon and foreign service officials, Dreyfuss argues that the largely hidden financing of radical political Islam by the US is greatly to blame for the global explosion of terrorism. He follows the trail of American collusion from support for the Muslim brotherhood in 1950s Egypt to links with Khomeini and Afghani jihadists and cooperation with Hamas and Saudi Wahhabism. Originally deployed as pawns to foil nationalism, extremist Islamists now stand against the world.
