MEDIA ADVISORY, Oct. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Raab's story fuses the intimacy of a memoir with an impeccable historical account....a crucial contribution to the current discourse on terrorism, international diplomacy, and how they affect the innocent civilians who become embroiled in these dangerous situations." -- International Fellowship of Christians and Jews
Thirty seven years after the hijackings of Black September introduced the world to a new era of global terrorism, David Raab has released the first eyewitness account of events which served as a prelude to the attacks of 9/11. A seventeen-year-old high school student returning to the United States from a summer vacation in Israel with his mother and four siblings, Raab was taken hostage and held in Jordan by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) for three weeks.
Today a management consultant and prominent pro-Israel activist, Raab has written a riveting book that weaves together an exposition of the civil war in Jordan and high-level diplomatic activities that surrounded the hijackings together with entries taken from his personal diary recorded shortly after his release. Though reading more like a geopolitical thriller rather than a history book, Terror in Black September offers an understanding of those critical events drawing on previously classified documents and interviews with key players. It relates a story of personal faith and perseverance wrapped up in a global drama.
A sought-after lecturer and interviewee who divides his time between the United States and Israel, Raab is now making himself available to members of the media to discuss how his experience remains relevant today and how lessons from Black September can be applied to the current Arab-Israeli conflict and the War on Terror. "How King Hussein prosecuted his successful war on terror in 1970 can be a model for us today," Raab says.
Raab has authored numerous essays and articles on a variety of topics pertaining to the Middle East, including the treatment of Christians under the Palestinian Authority, American Christian attitudes regarding Jerusalem, and ways to enhance Israel's democracy.
