Preface It was shortly after I had graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1980 with a PhD Degree specializing in fracture mechanics and failure analysis of materials and structures that I discovered the dire need for this book This undertaking began to take shape in the early 1980 s with the Middle East aflame devastated by what some viewed as a holy war and with millennialists prophesying the end of days by the year 2000 C E After publishing and co authoring 87 scientific and industrial reports and technical papers many of which were in national and international magazines on the subject of failure analysis of metals and fracture mechanics of aircraft structures I came to realize that consequences of failures of the human spirit are far more devastating than failures of metals and aircraft structures But now at the outset of the 21st century the world is still experiencing turmoil and devastation by wars spreading like wildfire with Jews Christians and Moslems at each other s throats in seemingly never ending battles and ugly strife Some call it war on terror others speak of wars of clashing cultures crusades jihad etc etc etc One can t help but wonder how this saga of 99 misery and 1 heroism will ever come to an end Only the gullible would attempt to explain the ongoing world conflict among People of the Book Jews Christians and Moslems based on the course of events during the past few years or even the past few decades This is where this book comes in with a rigorous rationalized and hopefully convincing critical assessment of a never before explored most innate aspect of the human nature and that is its obsession with hijacking of the religion of God For better understanding of the root cause of the ongoing conflict among People of the Book who are supposed to be worshipping the same God we need to take a step back take a deep breath and reflect rationally while ignoring all rhetoric and emotional

About the Author:

Dr. Sami ElSoudani is an aerospace materials scientist specializing in fracture mechanics and failure analysis and has been engaged for over thirty years in averting failures of aircraft structures. For the past 20 years, however, he has been conducting independent theological research prompted by regrettable world events clearly showing that failures of the human spirit are of far more devastating consequences than failures of aircraft structures. Dr. ElSoudani, was born in Egypt, received his undergraduate degree from the Soviet Union, his MSc Degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) and his PhD Degree from the University of Cambridge, England. Nabawia ElSoudani received a Master of Fine Arts Degree at the California Institute of the Arts in the program of Film and Video (May 2006). She has independently produced, directed, and edited film/videos that screened nationally and internationally in festivals and galleries including a feature length documentary, entitled My Father My Friend that complements the research in this book. Her work critiques patriarchal power and the militaryindustrialmedia complex. Having both Western and Eastern heritage, she works to bridge the gap between East and West finding a common ground in the humanity, history, and spirituality that they have in common.
