Hal Lindsey, in his recent book The Everlasting Hatred: The Roots of Jihad, (1) writes about what he perceives as an ancient fight-to-the-death conflict between Judeo-Christian and Islamic orders. In an essay on his website, titled The Islamic Mindset,(2) he comments that the US needs to realize "how official Muslim clerics think, or we will perish under nuclear rubble." According to Lindsey, many of these clerics preach that the US and the West are "The Great Satan," and the supreme enemy of Islam.
"A nuclear-armed Muslim suicide bomber who kills a few million 'infidels' would be considered among the highest pantheon of Muslim martyrs," Lindsey continues. Though he doesn't believe that all Muslims are our enemies, he says there is particular danger from Muslim men between the ages of 18 to 45. Lindsey advocates the profiling of Muslims and Mosques in the US. "If this is done prudently," he writes, "it will verify who are our Muslim friends are who are our enemies."
