INFIDEL OF THE DAY: Brigitte Gabriel

There is no more articulate, passionate or informed speaker on radical Islam than Brigitte Gabriel. What makes her presentations, question and answer sessions and writing so powerful is that she has first-hand experience with jihad. As an Arab Christian growing up in southern Lebanon, she spent seven years living in a bomb shelter during the Lebanese Civil War. After living in Israel and the United States, Ms. Gabriel has a clear perspective on the differences between the West and the Islamic world. She has no illusions about the intentions of our enemies.

If Ms. Gabriel was an Arab woman who told of being victimized by Israel rather than Muslims and the PLO, she would be a household name in the United States and feted all around the world, even if she had merely a fraction of her talent for speaking, writing and making sense of our world. In a debate, she would expose Hanan Ashrawi--the vicious, lying Christian PLO spokeswoman who is a favorite "moderate" of television hosts and intellectuals. But you only see Ms. Ashrawi opposed on television by male, inarticulate, English-challenged Israelis. If you are lucky enough to live near a university or bookstore where Ms. Gabriel will speak, go see her. You will learn more in ten minutes than in any Middle Eastern studies course.

Buy her new book, Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America. Read every word--twice. Tell others.
