   schema:reviewBody ""In the violent world of radical extremists, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." In this study, George Michael reveals how that precept plays out in the unexpected bonding between militant Islam and the extreme right in America and Europe." "The first book to focus on the growing linkage between these two movements, The Enemy of My Enemy analyzes the histories and ideologies guiding these disparate groups, clarifies the nature of their mutual appeal, and shows how the Internet and globalization have made increased interaction possible. Michael notes that one particularly dominant thread running throughout both camps is a fervent anti-Semitism, accompanied by strong pro-Palestinian views, anger over Israel's influence on American policymakers, and opposition to the Iraq War and the U.S. presence in the Middle East." "Michael also speculates on how the so-called War on Terror might unfold if this unexpected and alarming convergence grows stronger. While the thought of Americans assisting or fighting alongside Islamic militants - in America - sounds utterly far-fetched, Michael points out that some members of the extreme right have publicly expressed admiration for al Qaeda's audacious attacks on 9/11." "Daring to consider the unthinkable, Michael provides an insightful and sane look at the possibilities for collaboration between these groups and raises a quiet but clear alarm for anyone concerned about America's future."--Jacket." ;
