About the Book

Fundamentalism is an ideology dating back to Biblical times, but it is not a religion. Instead of the ideology being repudiated by Christianity, it is belligerently proclaiming it in the United States of America. The basic lie of Fundamentalist ideology is "our way is the only way." It is an empire-driven war movement.. Like other authoritarian and despotic ideologies, its secret, most important principle is "the end justifies the means." It deceitfully spreads hatred by disguising itself as a "loving" religion. After the ancient Hebrews were defeated by four different empires, the original teachings and example of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and later, Muhammad, were amalgamated by zealots with the Fundamentalist ideology, 100 to 300 years after their deaths. The aim of the zealots was continuous warfare and ruthless empire. The Catholic empire ruled the continent of Europe for 1,000 years, from 500 to 1500 CE. The Muslim empire ruled the Middle East, North Africa and Spain for more than 500 years, from 750 to 1258 CE. Since 2000 CE, the desire for continuous warfare and empire by the CIA, the Fundamentalist and extreme right Bush administration, the banking and war corporations and the U.S. Congress is rapidly and now openly destroying the U.S. Constitution. This fanatical Fundamentalist and extreme right ideology resulted in the heinous false "terrorist attack" by secret paramilitary organizations in the CIA-Pentagon, on September 11, 2001. The "attack" killing 3,000 Americans and foreigners was used to justify the takeover and military occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. Israel and the U.S. have now planned an attack with "mini" nuclear weapons on Iran. This Fundamentalist "triumphalism" for empire in the United States. Israel and the United Kingdom may cause a global nuclear war.
