Just finished Son of Hamas, autobiography of the son of one of the seven founders of the terrorist group that originated on the West Bank. Whew! That's an interesting one. I'm now reading Looming Tower, which traces the roots of the 911 al-Qaeda going back to the 1930s; Pulitizer Prize winner, and deserving of it. I would recommend to every American to read this book. Also, I am re-reading Dune. I read it in my teens/early 20s, and am finding it better now than then. I'm planning to read the entire series (I never did in my early years).
