About this title:

Synopsis:

In A Brutal Friendship, Said K. Aburish traces the true origins of the region's present turmoil to the manner in which corrupt Arab rulers have subordinated the welfare of their subjects to their cultivation of cozy relationships with the West. Using direct evidence from his unrivaled range of Arab sources, he describes how the West -- mostly the CIA -- sponsored Islamic fundamentalism in the 1950s and '60s in an effort to contain Nasser and thwart Soviet designs on the region, how American and British leaders have turned a blind eye to repressive governments when they suit their interests (and toppled them when they do not), and how it is these very machinations that set Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein on his bloody road to power.

About the Author:

Said K. Aburish was born in the biblical village of Bethany near Jerusalem in 1935. He attended university in the United States and subsequently became a correspondent for Radio Free Europe and The Daily Mail, and a consultant to two Arab governments. Now a freelance journalist and author, his books include Children of Bethany, Cry Palestine, and biographies of Arafat and Saddam Hussein.

Book Description -St. Martin's Press Aug. -, 1998. First edition. 416 pages. Boards. Very good in dustjacket. Describes and explains how current events in the Middle East represent a backlash against decades of collusion and conspiracy. It links the present turmoil to the way in which the ruling establishment has consistently subordinated the welfare of the average Arab and to its conspiratorial alliance with the West. It argues that the West, and the CIA in particular, sponsored and to some extent helped create Islamic fundamentalism in the 1950s and 1960s in order to stop Nasser and thwart the USSR's designs on the region, and exposes how British and American government have supported the Arab elite while turning a blind eye to their repressive domestic regimes.
