The fact that the vast majority of people on earth today were born after the end of the Second World War should not be used by anybody as a pretext to claim ignorance of the horrors to which the human family was subjected during that devastating war. Fortunately, technology has made it possible for those scenes of horror at the concentration camps and elsewhere to be viewed many times over. As can be observed from the films, a calculated attempt was made to exterminate Jews from the face of the earth. Moreover, in that diabolical, unprecedented, and evil grand design in the history of humanity, millions of people from the four corners of the earth perished while a lot of wealth and infrastructures were destroyed. The USA participated in that war because it thought it would be a war to end all wars.
Unfortunately, that war did not end all wars. Rather, the world has continued to witness wars and increased acts of terror globally. Both the young and the old have continued to shed tears and blood as a result of barbaric acts of terrorism. No one is spared.
I had not fully recovered from the shock I received on hearing that someone, somewhere in our present world, questioned the veracity of the genocide perpetrated against the Jews during World War II when the unthinkable acts of terror against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon occurred on September 11, 2001. Since those horrendous attacks happened, world leaders have persistently called for a global coalition to wage war against terrorism. It is in response to those calls for concerted action against terrorism that this book is written. Its aim is not to grieve for, defend, or condemn any country or group of countries but to expose the root-causes of global terrorism and recommend remedial action. This line of approach is in recognition of the fact that the brutal attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were not directed against the American people alone but against the entire human family as the nationalities of the victims indicate and given the havoc that terrorists have unleashed on humanity across the ages.
