"Global Jihad" - new title by Patrick Sookhdeo (Isaac Publishing)

globaljihad3d

For reviews click here.

Dr Sookhdeo`s latest work analyses the rise of Islamic violence worldwide in the modern world. Quoting from an extensive range of Muslim and other sources, he examines the present situation in the context of Islamic teaching on violence and war, past and present, and suggests a range of possible responses.

(670 pages, hard back, Isaac Publishing)

 

"This book is long overdue. Patrick Sookhdeo has put together a stunning in-depth analysis of perhaps the greatest threat facing the Western World today. I strongly commend it to anyone attempting to understand the issues surrounding global jihad, particularly policy makers and those charged with executing the responses required. Our current campaign plans lack both clarity and understanding - this book provides both, and all those engaged in the formulation of future plans should read what he has to say very carefully indeed - their efforts will be well rewarded."
Major General (retired) Tim Cross CBE, Army Adviser to the House of Commons Defence Committee

"After every atrocity carried out by Muslim jihadists against the West, we ask the dismal question `Why do they hate us so much?`. Patrick Sookhdeo`s book explains exactly why, and what we can do about it." General (retired) Sir Hugh Beach GBE, KCB, MC

"Patrick Sookhdeo has written another book of great scholarship and clarity, which examines the roots and nature of Islamic jihad and the long war that lies ahead. A recent NATO think-tank clearly identifies Islamic terrorism as a `threat of a global nature that places the very existence of NATO`s members at risk … it is imperative to defend our freedoms against Islamic extremism … and we must take responsibility for defeating Islamic jihadism.` Patrick Sookhdeo is a man uniquely qualified to explain to the reader what lies behind the resurgence of militant Islamic fundamentalism and how the West should respond. This important book is most strongly commended to everyone who wants to understand the nature of the Islamic threat we face, and it is especially recommended for study in universities, to government and to those who wish to analyse asymmetric threats."
Colonel (retired) Ivar Hellberg OBE, MPhil, Director of the Resilience Centre, Cranfield University at the UK Defence Academy

"Tactics without strategy, warned Sun Tzŭ, is the noise before defeat. Patrick Sookhdeo`s book tells us much about our opponents` strategy. We would do well to understand it, to recognise its attraction and its force, and to meet it with a strategy of our own. We will have no excuse for saying that we were not warned."
Professor Richard Holmes, Professor of Military and Security Studies at Cranfield University

    • Pray for a church in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, whose building has been confiscated by the authorities, who claim that the sales contract signed more than 14 years ago was invalid. The seizure of the building may be motivated by hostility to the congregation’s Christian activities, but the incentive could also be financial; the building now has a market value of around US$1 million. The State Property Fund, which originally owned it, has said the church will get back only the US$46,000 it paid 14 years ago. The church insists it has fulfilled the terms of the contract. Pray for the congregation, that their place of worship will be restored to them and that God will protect them from further harassment. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 5 hours ago

    • Give thanks to the Lord that Barnabas Aid is able to help oppressed and persecuted Christian communities by providing grants to Christian students in higher education. Pray for those who have received this help in the past, that they will give a voice to their brothers and sisters and will help to resource, empower and protect them in the face of hostility. Ask that God’s sustaining grace will uphold those who are currently studying, often under severe pressure from the majority community, and pray that they may be equipped for spiritual leadership. Praise God for their dedication to His service, and ask Him to use them powerfully in their various vocations. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Aug 2014 00:00

    • Almighty God, we pray that You will protect Your people in the Holy Land. We pray especially for the congregation of a church in Gaza City, whose church compound was attacked with a small explosive device on 26 February. We give You thanks that the church, school, nursery and pastor’s house were undamaged and that a fi re that was lit under the pastor’s car was extinguished when Christians came outside to investigate. We pray that the congregation may stand firm for You in the face of the threatening message that was written on the wall facing the church gate: “We’ll get you soon, O worshippers of the cross.” We ask that there will be no further attempt to attack this church or others in the area.

    • Taliban militants attempted to attack a Christian-run day-care centre in Kabul, Afghanistan, on 28 March, saying it was “a church used to convert Muslims to Christianity”. The attackers mistakenly targeted the next-door building, which houses workers on an agricultural and de-mining project, instead; two Afghan civilians, one a young girl, died in the crossfi re. All five Taliban bombers were also killed in the raid on the heavily-secured compound. The day-care centre that they were attempting to target, which is used by expatriates, is said to hold Christian worship services on certain days. Ask the Lord to change the hearts of those who plan and carry out terrorist attacks against Christians and other targets in Afghanistan; pray that they will turn instead to Him.

    • “He was always a light for Christ and he had a love and commitment that he expressed for the Afghan people because of that love for Christ.” The widow of Dr Jerry Umanos, an American doctor who was shot dead at the Christian-run hospital where he worked in Kabul, Afghanistan, spoke of her husband’s faith and ministry. Two visiting American Christians, father and son Gary and John Gabel, were also killed on 24 April when an Afghan security guard opened fire on the staff he was meant to be protecting. Pray for comfort for the grieving families of the three men, and ask the Lord to safeguard the future of the hospital, which provides much-needed medical care and also trains Afghan doctors and nurses.
