این کتاب، در مورد نفرت قدیمی جهان اسلام علیه امریکا صحبت می کند که نه تنها احساسات ضد یهود، بلکه کلا امریکا و بطور عام "غرب" را تهدید می کند.
تیمرمان در این کتاب به ریشه یابی این مساله می پردازد و اینکه چگونه به جوانان در مساجد و مدارس این دیدگاه آموزش داده می شود. او افشا می کند چگونه از امریکا و اروپا برای بسط این نفرت در مدارس فلسطینی پول ارسال می شود.
In Preachers of Hate, best selling author Kenneth R. Timmerman (who is not Jewish) contends that, besides Islam itself, the core unifying force in the Muslim world is a virulent strain of anti-Semitism that postulates the existence of a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world. It is seen as no less than Muslims' historical destiny to prevent such a takeover, and to do so by any means possible. To misunderstand the ferocity of that belief is to vastly underestimate the resolve of many Muslims to repel America, Israel, and all things Western.
Timmerman explores the roots of this hatred, examining its history, the religious sources upon which it draws, and how it is being transmitted to young people growing up in Arab societies by their leaders, their teachers, and their mosques. He documents how U.S. and European Union money has been used to finance hatred in Palestinian schools. He exposes the double-talk of Arab leaders and their supporters in the West. As it so often was throughout history, this new strain of Jew hatred is really about much more than Jews. They get attacked first, when the enemies of America can't attack Americans. However, what begins with the Jews never ends with the Jews.
As America reasserts her role in the Middle East and attempts to bring peace between Jews and Arabs, Preachers of Hate is an essential book that reframes a very complicated issue as a matter of life and death.
