See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security ...

One day after a prominent US Muslim leader reacted to the November 2015 Paris attacks with a declaration that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has nothing to do with Islam, President Obama made the same assertion. Who exactly is the enemy we face, not only in the Middle East but also within our borders? Is it "murderers without a coherent creed"; or "nihilistic killers who want to tear things down", as some described ISIS after 130 people were brutally slain and another 368 injured in a coordinated attack on Western soil that authorities say was organized with help from inside France's Muslim communities. After the Paris attacks, Obama himself, described ISIS as "simply a network of killers who are brutalizing local populations." When the Department of Homeland Security was founded in 2003, its stated purpose was "preventing terrorist attacks within the United States and reducing America's vulnerability to terrorism." The Bush administration's definition of the enemy as a tactic, terrorism, rather than a specific movement, proved consequential amid a culture of political correctness. By the time President Obama took office, Muslim Brotherhood-linked leaders in the United States were forcing changes to national security policy and even being invited into the highest chambers of influence. A policy known as Countering Violent Extremism emerged, downplaying the threat of supremacist Islam as unrelated to the religion and just one among many violent ideological movements. When recently retired DHS frontline officer and intelligence expert Philip Haney bravely tried to say something about the people and organizations that threatened the nation, his intelligence information was eliminated, and he was investigated by the very agency assigned to protect the country. The national campaign by the DHS to raise public awareness of terrorism and terrorism-related crime known as If You See Something, Say Something effectively has become If You Se 1. Language: English.

9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For fans of How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are, My Paris Dream is a charming and insightful memoir about coming of age as a fashion journalist in 1980s Paris by former Vogue and Harper's Bazaar editor Kate Betts, the author of Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style. "You can always come back," my mother said. "Just go." As a young woman, Kate Betts nursed a dream of striking out on her own in a faraway place and becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. After college - and not without trepidation - she took off for Paris, renting a room in the apartment of a young BCBG (bon chic, bon genre) family and throwing herself into the local culture. She was determined to master French slang, style, and savoir faire and to find a job that would give her a reason to stay. After a series of dues-paying jobs that seemed only to reinforce her outsider status, Kate's hard work and willingness to take on any assignment paid off: Her writing and intrepid forays into la France Profonde - true France - caught the eye of John Fairchild, the mercurial fashion arbiter and publisher of Women's Wear Daily, the industry's bible. Kate's earliest assignments - investigating the mineral water preferred by high society, chasing after a costumed band of wild boar hunters through the forests of Brittany - were a rough apprenticeship, but she was rewarded for her efforts and was initiated into the elite ranks of Mr. Fairchild's trusted few who sat beside him in the front row and at private previews in the ateliers of the gods of French fashion. From a woozy yet mesmerizing Yves Saint Laurent and the mischievous and commanding Karl Lagerfeld to the riotous, brilliant young guns who were rewriting all the rules - Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, John Galliano - Betts gives us a view of what it was like to be an American girl learning about herself, falling in love, and finding her tribe 1.

Woran krankt der Islam? Am Atheismus, am Christentum - oder am Islam selbst? Dass etwas krank ist, ist offensichtlich. Selbst viele Muslime stellen das fest. Viele von ihnen - insbesondere auch viele muslimische Frauen - hatten in Paris und Toulouse mit der Unterstützung ihrer Imame Protestschilder in die Kameras gehalten: "ISIS ist das Krebsgeschwür an unserer Religion. Paris geschah NICHT in unserem Namen! Wir sind nicht so!" Es war gut, dass sie sich von diesem Geschwür distanzierten. Aber woher könnten Hilfe und Heilung kommen?Vishal Mangalwadi, der bekannte indische Christ und Autor des Bestsellers "Das Buch der Mitte", greift das Thema auf. Für ihn ist allerdings klar, dass auch der Westen eine große Mitschuld trägt an der destabilisierten Situation unserer Welt. Mit viel Insider-Kenntnis zeigt er auf, wo wir heute stehen: Warum gibt es heute weltweit so viele muslimische Flüchtlinge? Flüchten sie vor dem Islam? Was ist der Islamische Staat (IS)? Wer kämpft überhaupt gegen wen? Worum geht es beim "Dschihad"? Warum sind muslimische Staaten gescheitert? In welcher Weise haben westliche Liberale und Neo-Konservative die muslimischen Staaten im Stich gelassen? Von Reagan bis Obama: Weshalb so viele amerikanische Missgeschicke und Fehleinschätzungen? Wie groß ist das Problemfeld zwischen der EU und dem Kalifat? Warum fehlt es an Menschenwürde und Menschenrechten im Islam? Welche Antworten haben wir gegen diese neue "Spiritualität des Hasses"? Und was sagt der Gott der Bibel zu all dem?Mangalwadi liefert ein hochaktuelles Buch ab, das einen neuen Boden legen wird für weitere Diskussionen und Lösungsansätze.

Every Day Is Extra , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1705min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

John Kerry tells the story of his remarkable American life - from son of a diplomat to decorated Vietnam veteran, five-term United States senator, 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, and Secretary of State for four years - a revealing memoir by a witness to some of the most important events of our recent history. Every Day Is Extra is John Kerry’s candid personal story. A Yale graduate, Kerry enlisted in the US Navy in 1966, and served in Vietnam. He returned home highly decorated but disillusioned, and testified powerfully before Congress as a young veteran opposed to the war. Kerry served as a prosecutor in Massachusetts, then as lieutenant governor, and was elected to the Senate in 1984, eventually serving five terms. In 2004 he was the Democratic presidential nominee and came within one state - Ohio - of winning. Kerry returned to the Senate, chaired the important Foreign Relations Committee, and succeeded Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in 2013. In that position he tried to find peace in the Middle East; dealt with the Syrian civil war while combatting ISIS; and negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. Every Day Is Extra is Kerry’s passionate, insightful, sometimes funny, always moving account of his life. Kerry tells wonderful stories about colleagues Ted Kennedy and John McCain, as well as President Obama and other major figures. He writes movingly of recovering his faith while in the Senate, and deplores the hyper-partisanship that has infected Washington. Few books convey as convincingly as this one the life of public service like that which John Kerry has lived for 50 years. Every Day Is Extra shows Kerry for the dedicated, witty, and authentic man that he is, and provides forceful testimony for the importance of diplomacy and American leadership to address the increasingly complex challenges of a more globalized world. 1.
