History Lesson: The Rise of Totalitarian Islam Part 4 of 4

Today, America faces an enemy that most of our political leaders fear to name. This enemy brought down the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11; it bombed Madrid and London; it has motivated much of the Iraqi insurgency. Our enemy is more than murderous, suicidal terrorists. It's Islamic totalitarianism, a lethal ideology calling for holy war against infidels.

In this course, Dr. Brook analyzes the origins and historical development of Islamic totalitarianism. He examines its foundation in Koranic teachings; its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood movement in Egypt dating back to 1928; its expansion throughout the Middle East with the aid of Saudi oil money; its political triumph in the Iranian Revolution; and its ultimate spread throughout the entire world, from Europe to the Far East. The course includes an extended discussion by Dr. Brook of the tenets of Islamic totalitarianism, the crucial factors that have made it possible (most notably, the intellectual weakness of the West) and the proper methods for defeating it.

This course was recorded at the 2006 Objectivist Summer Conference in Boston, MA.
