Master Charles Cannon

Most people would probably find forgiveness difficult, if not impossible, if they were subjected to a horrific terrorist attack that resulted in the deaths of many innocent people, and nearly cost them their own lives.

Yet …

Master Charles CannonCannon

After the 2008 Mumbai hotel massacre, spiritual teacher Master Charles Cannon and two dozen associates did forgive their attackers, refusing to yield their hearts to the desire for revenge, punishment, and hatred.

Now, in a book called “Forgiving the Unforgivable” Master Charles explains how this forgiveness was not only possible, but vital to him and the others who endured the trauma with him.

True forgiveness, he says, comes from a state of awareness in which forgiveness becomes instinctive.

What if the next terrorist attack in America didn’t target buildings or airplanes or humans, but our economy?Could skillful use of hedge funds accomplish what al-Qaeda has always wanted, the downfall of the west?

H.T. Narea

In his debut novel, a financial thriller called “The Fund,” international investment banker H.T. Narea imagines — with alarming realism — how it could be done. Luckily, at least in his fictitious account, there is an American who can stop it. Her name is Kate Molares, she works for the Defense Intelligence Agency, and she has just spotted suspicious activity that could be the crucial clue in finding the bad guys. If she can do it in time. It’s a mission that is too big to fail.

The “war on terror” is unending, unwinnable, and unlosable, says Iranian-born American scholar Reza Aslan.

Reza  AslanAslan

The title of his book — “How to Win a Cosmic War” — is meant to be provocative, for Aslan believes there is no winning the kind of war that the United States declared on September 12th, 2001. “How to Win a Cosmic War” is a call for nations to strip world conflicts of their religious connotations.

Hating America is no longer limited to wild-eyed fringe fanatics in the Arab world, according to veteran journalist Jim Sciutto. In his role as ABC News Senior Foreign correspondent, Sciutto has traversed the Middle East, finding that al Qaeda’s view of America is increasingly being adopted by middle-class, well-educated, mainstream Arabs.

And frighteningly, Sciutto has concluded that the Iraq war is, indeed, a shockingly fertile breeding ground for enemies of America. His book is called “Against Us.”
