Summary In 2002 Jim Sciutto began filing in-depth reports on the Middle East for ABC News. Now, after nearly 100 assignments in Muslim countries, Sciutto brings back this disturbing truth: the Al-Qaeda-inspired view of an evil America bent on destroying Islam has moved from the fringes to the mainstream. Today, a surprising number of America's enemies are not wild-eyed fanatics, but moderates--often middle-class and well educated, frequently young, many motivated by political convictions more than religious belief. Yet there is hope for America to turn the tide of hate. Against Us is an urgent wake-up call for all Americans--and in particular those charged with formulating U.S. foreign policy--to rebuild relations with the Arab world and restore confidence in American values.--From publisher description.
