    One thought on “The Blood of the Moon: Understanding the Historic Struggle Between Islam and Western Civilization”

    1. Reread. In this brief book, George Grant digs into history to explain the roots of conflicts that bedevil the Middle East hundreds and in some cases thousands of years after their inception. For example, he suggests that the multiple invasions carried out against Kuwait by Saddam Hussein's Iraq have their roots in the ancient Babylonian/Sumerian rivalry. He does very persuasively argue that ancient empires continue to inspire Middle Eastern dictatorships to the present day. And his explanation o [...]

    2. I really appreciated this introduction to the history of conflict between Islam and the West. It was especially fascinating to see the obsession with cultural history that seems to be a characteristic of many Middle Eastern countries. It's a bit like the nationalism that swept through Europe in the 19th century. My only complaint is that the book was too short and left me with too many question. I guess that just the nature of an introduction, though. There's a nice bibliography that I plan to p [...]

    3. Something that stuck out at me was that if the American school system taught history instead of social studies, we would understand the problems in the middle east and realize that even though Moses supposes erroneously, Moses still supposes his toses are roses. They fight for what they think is right, and you cannot crush conviction with force.

    4. This is a book I am ashamed to claim that I read.(read it for a self imposed challenge of completing reading this piece of junk)

    5. It is truly a remarkable book which gives you an insight in the wars between Islam and the State of Israel . Good reads for any one trying to understand all that has been going on for generations.

    6. Written with Grant's eloquent, speech-worthy prose, this is a clear, succinct telling of the clash between Isaac and Ishmael through the millennia.
