This book might appear informative to those who are big on current events and small on history but to understand middle eastern politics, including the emergence of Al-Qaida, you have to know the underlying factors (i.e. history). The author is right that Saudi Arabia has problems but to say that it's evil and that it has created Al-Qaida is just pure ignorance and is only distracting us from the root cause. O' Jerusalam is worthwhile reading for those who would like an unbiased and educated understanding of what the problem is - only then can we tackle it. This book isn't worth 50 cents.
The author claims that muslims believe there exists a conspiracy by Jews to rule the world. This is nothing more than an Islamic version of the Protocals of Zion. This belongs in the fiction section and it does more to promote hate and misunderstanding than it does to bridge gaps.
