Tea With Terrorists
As the story unwinds to climax, authors Craig Winn and Ken Power weave a philosophic accountability for the incentive warned in my own Qur’an Critique and as it concerns Islam’s world conquest. You can see a condensed Qur’an indictment in Ben Winter’s Qur’an Critique at: < www.winterbriar.com >. Every American should read Tea With Terrorists and the Ben Winter Qur’an Critique, not only for an awakened awareness to terrorist presence in our very midst, but to a refreshingly idealized courtship between protagonists in the Tea With Terrorists’ romance element.
Captain Thor Adams and a multinational Special Forces Group, composed of four each Israeli, British, and American components, embark on a mission into Afghanistan, planned by attractive CIA operative Sarah Nottingly. Mission plans are compromised by a leak to Muslim forces; forthwith, most of the Special Forces unit are captured and submitted to gruesome tortures, including crucifixion, and amidst gleeful taunts from an inhuman enemy—observed by two of the escaped Special Forces Group. In this ambiance, a lesbian President and her female Defense Secretary consort pursue a corrupt political agenda advantageous to the Islamic cause.
Lest we give away too much story line, suffice to say: Thor and the beauteous CIA operative, Sarah, become romantically involved. As a united force of two, they undertake to discover what makes the Muslim dedication tick, seeking cause for the heinous savagery condoned under Qur’anic legal-historical auspices. Coincident with their private investigation, Sarah provides Thor with insight into Qur’an verses along with evangelizing dictates from Bible scripture, and bringing their (at the first) dichotomous viewpoints into unilateral focus. “Man is a religious animal. He will always find something to worship . . . . To Sarah, it (soteriology) meant that in matters of faith, you could demonstrate truth by testing scriptures ‘mathematically.’ If it could be shown statistically that it was true, then it probably was. The best solution was the one it took the ‘least’ amount of faith to accept.” Which, to Ben Winter, is a monotheism cop-out.
We remind ourselves, it is only a novel; however, the evangelistic tenor is obvious as is the overt warning about terrorist ethos. Sarah is exposited as a true-blue Christian devotee. Looking down the commitment road, she equips Thor with alternatives to his agnostic incertitude; however, Sarah’s prejudice prohibits a true logic application for the legal-historicism entirely frozen in ancient semantics; therefore, from this critique author’s Bible exegesis, her attempt to intertwine traditional values, word usage, and desiderated myopia, casts her in an expected mold and prohibits a rational and indisputable apologetic.
Suffering a bloody encounter in their search for effect and cause, protagonists are led into a no-mans-land of Qur-anic excess, to a ‘tea with terrorists,’ and to a startling revelation.
Catapulted into national prominence, amidst dire events effectuated by terrorist cells in the United States, and concurrent with an enviously financed honeymoon, Thor vows to right the wrongs and miscalculations made by previous advisors, staff, and Administration heads.
Winn and Power, you did our country a service by writing this book; however, gentlemen, I would challenge the ‘Jew’ nomination from bottom-page 506: Moses was not a ‘Jew.’ The usage was not applicative until some 400 years after Moses’ death. But I would give the devil his due; most so-called Jews (and other monotheists) probably do not know the difference either. Again I must call the Winn-Power combine to task for their exegetical expertise concerning “Palestina” origination. It was not Romans who coined the name ‘Palestina’; I refer the authors to 660 years earlier to Roman presence in Judea, when Isaiah 14:31 let the cat out of the bag in 725 B.C. These are minor errors, and most traditionalists could care less; however, a good critique should find error—notwithstanding, I would dread for Winn and Power to critique my own work.
And gentlemen, while Thor Adams and Sarah did correctly elicit source for Muslim terror incentives, they failed to resolve the metaphysical equation. Profound in another author’s observation, Ann Tyler’s: “The world was full of equations . . . there must be an answer for everything, if only you knew how to set forth the questions.” This question has been set forth, in contextual surety; and the answer has been posited to the present Administration policymaker corp. Surprise! They think thinkers are resident only in the Washington bureaucracy.
All present initiatives by US think tanks will be proven ineffective in the long haul, for they redesign traditional failures only. A metaphysical solution to the Middle Eastern madness can be found in the signature representation below.
If any on my e-mail list appreciate eminent and imminent danger warnings, plus lively fiction adventure and a smattering of metaphysical ideations woven into narrative flow, then, Tea With Terrorists might be your cup of tea.
