Baffled horrified and scared by the terrorism of radical
that pervades our world It s a very readable autobiography She looks for and finds some possible answers to the uestion posed by one of the victim s familes Why do they hate us Westerners so much The only reason I wouldn t give it five stars is because I found it a little self glorifying at times The author always seems to do the right thing at the right time a little too much so to ring totally true Perhaps this is the result of the self belief that drove her to become a top journalist so maybe it s no bad thing but it left me feeling a little dissatisfiedThere s actually notIslam That Pervades Our World
