Holy War on the Home Front
This book offers evidence of a unified Islamic terrorist network operating inside the United States and planning new opportunities to strike. Kushner identifies and assesses the violent plans of these Islamic organizations and individuals who take advantage of our reluctance to engage in ethnic profiling.
He supports his claims with documents from top-level government sources, exposing a secret network of Arab intelligence agencies, terrorists, university professors, corrupt imams and other religious leaders, and violent criminals.
Some members of this network are recent immigrants; others have been American citizens for years. Finding and stopping these conspiracies will require drastic changes in the way Americans think about terrorism.
