HOLY WAR: The Rise of Militant Christian, Jewish and Islamic Fundamentalism
David S. New, 2002
Temple Mount is believed by the Jews to be the locus of their ancient Temple. Known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary), this site is home to two mosques, one of which is the third most holy shrine in all of Islam. Jewish fundamentalists want to destroy the mosques on Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple. Christian apocalypticists are financing and supporting their efforts. If the mosques are destroyed, Islamic fundamentalists have vowed to destroy Israel, resulting in the possibility of nuclear war.
This is an account of how the recent rise of militant Christian, Jewish, and Muslim fundamentalisms and their interatction are endangering peace in the Middle East. It details how apocalypticist fundamentalists -- Christians in America, Jews in Israel and America -- are working together to hasten the coming of the Messiah by instigating a Holy War in the Middle East.
Several chapters focus on three U.S. political figures-Jerry Falwell, Ronald Reagan, and Pat
Robertson-who helped bring Christian fundamentalism into the mainstream of American politics.
One chapter tells of Jewish preparations for rebuilding the Temple on Temple Mount. Other
chapters document the rise of religious fundamentalism in Israel since 1967, Haram
al-Sharif-Temple Mount crises involving Christian-Jewish cooperation, and the rise of Islamic
fundamentalism. Separate chapters are devoted to Israel's nuclear program and political
psychology, and the fact that nuclear weapons are leaving Russia and finding their way to Islamic
nations and Islamic terrorists.
