The Road to Fatima Gate is a first-person narrative account of revolution, terrorism, and war during history's violent return to Lebanon after 15 years of quiet. Michael J. Totten's version of events in one of the most volatile countries in the world's most volatile region is one part war correspondence, one part memoir, and one part road movie. He sets up camp in a tent city built in downtown Beirut by anti-Syrian dissidents, is bullied and menaced by Hezbollah's supposedly friendly "media relations" department, crouches under fire on the Lebanese-Israeli border during the six-week war in 2006, witnesses an Israeli ground invasion from behind a line of Merkava tanks, sneaks into Hezbollah's post-war rubblescape without authorization, and is attacked in Beirut by militiamen who enforce obedience to the "resistance" at the point of a gun. From the "Cedar Revolution" that ousted the occupying Syrian military regime in 2005, to the devastating war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006, and to Hezbollah's slow-motion but violent assault on Lebanon's elected government and capital, Totten's account is both personal and comprehensive. He simplifies the bewildering complexity of the Middle East, has access to major regional players as well as to the man on the street, and personally witnesses most of the events he describes. The Road to Fatima Gate should be indispensable reading for anyone interested in the Middle East, Iran's expansionist foreign policy, the Arab-Israeli conflict, asymmetric warfare, and terrorism in the aftermath of September 11. 1.

Vecino limítrofe con Israel, este país hasta los años 70 era el centro financiero de Oriente Próximo, condición que fue rota por el enfrentamiento civil entre libaneses, la Guerra del Líbano, el ejército de Israel y el Hezbollah, sucesos que destruyeron un equilibrio político ejemplar. Las luchas internas y los conflictos con Israel - que invadió el país en 1982 - aún perduran. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1.

The phrase "east meets west" is a worn cliché, but it is entirely appropriate for Lebanon, which is situated at the western end of the trade routes from Asia and the eastern end of the sea routes to Europe through the Mediterranean. It has thus bred seafarers and traders, and even today there is a widespread diaspora of Lebanese merchants. As one of the most diverse nations in the Middle East, Lebanon has at times enjoyed a strong reputation for its cultural history (with Beirut often being compared to Paris), but it has also experienced destructive conflicts sown by social, political and religious divides, both within itself and among its neighbors. All of these factors would ultimately contribute to the formation of Hezbollah ("The Party of God"), the Shi'ite militia that is now widely considered one of the most powerful non-state groups in the world. Though their name is instantly recognizable across much of the globe, the history of Hezbollah is extremely complex. Various interests in Lebanon led to the eruption of civil war in the country in 1975, which included the participation of Syria, and the fighting was compounded when Israel invaded and occupied the southern part of Lebanon to combat members of the Palestine Liberation Organization and other Palestinians who had taken refuge in camps there. The result was a witch's brew of inter-connected alliances between forces in Lebanon, which consisted of Shiite militias, Sunni militias, Christian militias, Druze militias, Syria, and Israel. In the early 1980s, Hezbollah formed with the goal of ending Israeli occupation of Lebanon, which would not fully occur until 1999, when Israel began a unilateral withdrawal from the security zone in southern Lebanon. Hezbollah filled in the vacuum in southern Lebanon and took credit for forcing Israel out, thus bolstering their standing in Lebanon, especially among the Shiite community. Far from being a local militia, however, Hezbollah has spent t 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Gallagher. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/096393/bk_acx0_096393_sample.mp3.

An audiobook in Tamil language.Hezbollah is a Shia Muslim militant and political organization based in Lebanon. This district brand of Shia ideology was developed by Ayatollah Robollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic revolution in Iran.Like Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, or "God's Party", has been in the business of giving the U.S. shock treatment every now and then. It has an abundance of resources: ideological strength, human resources, money, and strong global networking. It was the hero of the month-long Israel-Lebanon war that began in July 2006.Hezbollah receives arms, training, and monetary aid from Iran and other sympathizers of the Arab cause. In Lebanon, Hezbollah is also a political movement, with two cabinet ministers and 14 members of parliament. Stubborn in its insistence that Israel must be destroyed, Hezbollah stands out in a political climate in which the majority of terrorist outfits, including the PLO and Hamas, have come to recognize Israel's existence.Pa. Raghavan takes us on an in-depth conducted tour of the organization, which many have so far known only from newspaper headlines. Don't be surprised if this audiobook gives you a taste of virtual reality, creating the illusion that you are in the heart of the action in Lebanon. You will certainly come away with a better understanding of the Palestinian predicament. 1. Tamil. Charles K. http://samples.audible.de/bk/newh/000034/bk_newh_000034_sample.mp3.
“You don't want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs.” (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu)Welcome to the Middle East, where Israel and her neighbors have been engaged in diplomatic and military conflicts for nearly 64 years, with roots in the disputes dating back over 2,000 years of history. Founded in May 1948, Israel faced annihilation from the moment the state declared independence, finding itself invaded by Arab armies hoping to put an end to it before it had barely been born. Israel has since grown into the region’s strongest military power, but it continues to face existential threats that leave its position perilous in ways more dangerous than any it has faced in more than 40 years. In fact, the world has been on edge for months over the standoff between Israel and Iran. With Iran seemingly racing toward a nuclear bomb and showing no signs of relenting, all eyes are on the two sides' covert shadow war (including assassinations and cyber warfare) and ultimately whether Israel and/or the US will use force to stop them. In Israel and Her Enemies, the authors of Decoding the Conflict Between Israel and the Palestinians recount the history of all the conflicts between Israel and her neighbors, while also getting listeners up to speed on where things stand now between Israel and nations like Iran and Syria, as well as relations between Israel and substate groups like Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, and Hezbollah. Along with analysis and anecdotes of important events and people, Israel and Her Enemies is the perfect starting point for understanding how the Middle East conflicts have gotten to where they are at today and what the future may hold. 1.
