On a day when millions of Americans remember a tragic time in history and perhaps recall when Americans were more united than ever in the wake of that tragedy, New York Times best-selling author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel is debuting her new book—one that reminds Americans' way of life is still under attack every day.
In Rise: In Defense of Judeo-Christian Values and Freedom, out today, Sept. 11, Gabriel arms readers with real data and compelling facts that will equip them to fight the efforts of America's enemies to undermine our nation at every level of society. Reiterating that values and freedoms are only as strong as those willing to stand for them, Rise also motivates readers to unite with other patriots who wish to preserve America's endangered Judeo-Christian values and freedom, and it all begins with awareness and understanding of what's at stake.
"'Rise serves as an initial warning call by painting a picture of the transformation from the 'Paris of the Middle East' to a hotbed for radical Islamists we see today," Gabriel says. "It is from this perspective I bring a warning to the U.S. and Western nations. Their future is my past, unless they wake up and change course."
In Rise, Gabriel informs Americans about why this should matter to them, their families and their personal freedom, and helps them draw the battle plan for what they can do to preserve their rights and freedoms before it's too late. Rise also reveals alarming evidence to open readers' eyes regarding the imminent threat and ever-widening plot to destroy long-enjoyed freedoms and national security.
Rise contains Gabriel's most hard-hitting, explosive message yet. It's not only a warning but also a rallying cry to unite Americans of all backgrounds in a fight for the survival of the nation, the protection of the Judeo-Christian values upon which it was built, and the preservation of the freedoms on which future generations depend.
In the more than 10 years since her groundbreaking first book took the world by storm, Gabriel has boldly faced death threats from terrorists, condemnation from critics and attacks from the "PC Police," yet she refuses to back down. Gutsy, spirited, undauntable and resolute, Gabriel now issues a new clarion call to America that addresses the historical and religious basis of our greatest threats to national security.
In Rise, Gabriel tells her personal story, journeying from war-torn Lebanon to America and noting the similarities between what happened to Lebanon and what is happening to Western countries that are taking in unvetted refugees, thereby transforming the very fabric of their societies.
When Gabriel was 10 years old, militant radical Islamists launched rockets into her family's home in their Christian town in southern Lebanon, destroying her home and seriously injuring her as they raged war against the "infidels." Her family was forced to seek refuge in an underground 8-foot-by-10-foot bomb shelter, where they lived for the next seven years. Often surviving on mere weeds, they had to crawl through a ditch to get water from a nearby spring while avoiding Islamic snipers.
After several perilous years, Gabriel moved to Israel before subsequently becoming a proud citizen of the greatest nation on earth: the United States of America. Today, she is one of the leading terrorism experts in the world, providing information and analysis on the rise of global Islamic terrorism. She lectures nationally and internationally about terrorism and current affairs.
She has addressed the United Nations, the Australian prime minister, members of the British Parliament/House of Commons, members of the United States Congress, top-ranked Pentagon officials, the Joint Forces Staff College, the U.S. Special Operations Command, the U.S. Asymmetric Warfare group, the FBI and many others. The top general for the Israel Defense Forces nicknamed Brigitte "The Iron Woman." In addition, she is a regular guest analyst on Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC and various radio stations daily across America. She serves on the board of advisers of the Intelligence Summit.
Gabriel started her organization, ACT for America—which now has a million members—to protect the citizens of the United States from the horrors she experienced as a girl. In addition to serving as the founder and chairman of ACT for America, Gabriel is a celebrated author of two New York Times best-sellers, Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America (2006) and They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It (2010).
Dame Gabriel was knighted in Europe in 2016 for her international work on fighting terrorism and standing up for Western values. She joins a long list of knights including former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, Nelson Mandela, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Henry Kissinger and others.
Gabriel has been named one of the top 50 most prominent speakers in America. She speaks Arabic, French, English and Hebrew. In today's environment, she stands alone as an individual who has experienced terrorism firsthand, now leading U.S. citizens in the national security arena and enabling them to protect themselves, their families, their communities and the democratic values and traditions of the United States of America.
Rise by Brigitte Gabriel is published by Frontline, an imprint of Charisma House, which has published 14 New York Times best-sellers.
