Hamas and Hizbollah: The Radical Challenge to Israel in the Occupied Territories. Authored by Dr. Stephen C. Pelletiere.
This study argues that Hamas and Hizbollah, the two main religious groups fighting Israel, probably are more threatening to U.S. interests than is generally believed. It discusses the various openings that the groups were able to exploit to advance themselves, and particularly how they profited from errors on the Israelis' part. At the same time, the study contends, there has been a corresponding rise of religious radicalism in Israel.

Shari'a Law, Cult Violence and System Change in Egypt: The Dilemma Facing President Mubarak. Authored by Dr. Stephen C. Pelletiere.
Egypt is one of the more economically deprived countries in the world. Societal stress is a major challenge. Few believe that Egypt will escape the poverty that has for so long oppressed it. This study looks at the unrest, identifies the forces behind it, and prescribes steps that can be taken to alleviate the situation.
