The Confrontation: Winning the War Against Future Jihad

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

In Future Jihad, terrorism and Middle East expert Walid Phares gave a definitive account of the historical and cultural forces that led to September 11 and the rise of radical Islam.  In The War of Ideas, he revealed the conflict of ideologies that underlie the War on Terror.  Now, in The Confrontation, he identifies the clashes to come and provides a blueprint for defeating the forces of jihad.  Moving from the ravaged villages of the Sudan to London's Muslim neighborhoods to the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, he illuminates the vast and complex world of the global jihadist movement.  He offers a multi-pronged strategy, global in scope, and calls on the world's diverse local and international institutions to come together and coordinate their efforts.  Pointing the way forward, this book shows how we might reclaim a world that is safe for freedom and democratic societies.

Walid Phares is a world-renowned terrorism and Middle East expert.  He is a Senior Fellow at The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and a Visiting Fellow at the European Foundation for Democracy.  He has testified before the State Department, European Parliament and U.N. Security Council many times.  He is a Fox News analyst and has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN, al Jazeera, and al Hurra, among others.  Dr. Phares is also a frequent contributor to U.S. and international radio programs.  A professor of Middle East Studies at Florida Atlantic University, he holds a doctorate in international relations and strategic studies.
