DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public. Concurrent with this is the large-scale preparation for war by the US military as well as the Iraqi side. The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis. Volume 2 of DEBACLE then spells out the first phase of the Gulf War itself. Iraq's brazen and demoralizing SCUD attacks on Israel ...

Archaeological discoveries in Jerusalem capture worldwide attention in various media outlets.

Don’t Say we didn’t Know

by Amos Gvirtz

The Israeli – Palestinian conflict – a new approach!This book is formulated with the understanding that on both sides of the Israeli – Palestinian conflict there are people who want the same thing: peace and protection of human rights. This fact is also what inspires the author to address some very moral questions and raise constructive and productive explanations about:Why don’t people want to know about their own country’s crimes?Why do Human Rights and Peace movements’ activities evoke such strong opposition?This book focuses on the positive aspects of those questions and takes a deeper look into those few movements that were successful, while analyzing what enabled them to turn into massive movements creating major change.

Israel's Edge: The Story of The IDF's Most Elite Unit - Talpiot

by Jason Gewirtz

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot.

Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for ten years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves.

Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel's top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatical...

A free open access ebook is available upon publication. Learn more at www.luminosoa.org. Persian is one of the great lingua francas of world history.

Color In Mind: The Golden The Black And The White In Islam

by r da costa vaughan

PREFACEIslam fathered color prejudice and racism. The Arabic Qur'an was the catalyst for the conception, the nurturing, and the religious tending of the ideas behind color racism. Subsequently these negative ideas were exported globally. This is the thesis of this book.The House of Islam, or dar al-Islam in Arabic, is no one particular location. It exists where anyone who has submitted to the Islamic belief system bows in prayer five times daily. Within these invisible temples, those of Islamic faith repeat the ritual statement of witness to their faith: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."In addition to prayer rituals, Islamic practitioners annually must fast during the lunar month of Ramadan. They all are required to financially support their faith, and final...

They Are Coming To Kill Us: A glimpse into the brutality of the War Criminal Bashar al-Assad

It was the murder of Hamza that set the spark to flame in an attempt to bring a family of dictators down that have been murdering people for more than three decades. If anything I hope this gives some perspective of what the Syrian people have gone through, and this is just a sliver of it. If these two short, short stories inspire even one person to look into the allegations against the Assad family it will have been worth publishing it....

The Epic of Kings- Hero Tales of Ancient Persia (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Edition)

by Ferdowsi Tusi, Abuʾl-Qasim

The Shahnameh, also transliterated as Shahnama (“The Book of Kings”), is a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE and is the national epic of Greater Iran. Consisting of some 50,000 “distichs” or couplets (2-line verses), the Shahnameh is the world's longest epic poem written by a single poet. It tells mainly the mythical and to some extent the historical past of the Persian Empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century. Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...
