Aren't we the good guys? Don't Americans spend billions of dollars coming to the aid of Muslim countries when they are subject to calamities? Didn't we save millions of Muslims from slaughter in Bosnia?
So why do so many Muslims hate us?
Veteran journalist Irfan Husain points out in his important new book, Fatal Faultlines: Pakistan, Islam and the West that there are two sides to every argument. And though you may not agree with the other side it is imperative that we at least understand the mind-set of people whose hearts and mind have been lost by the West and the United States.
Using personal experiences, anecdotes and history, Irfan Husain weaves a compelling and highly readable narrative that gives us a different perspective on world affairs and American involvement with the Middle East and the Muslim world.
