THE ISLAMIC HAJJ: ITS HISTORY, ITS MEANING, AND ITS CONNECTIONS TO THE ADAM AND EVE STORY
Presented by Barry Webb
BARRY WEBB BIO
Barry Webb has logged a 25-year career as an Arabic Translator/Analyst for the National Security Agency. Along the way he has picked up two MA degrees, one in Ancient History, and the other in Middle Eastern Studies. He has also taught some school. He has read the Qur’an front to back numerous times in both Arabic and English and since retirement from the NSA he has continued to follow events in the Middle East and the rise of terrorism via Arabic news sources such as the satellite TV stations of al-Jazeera and al-Arabiyya as well as Arabic print media over the internet. In addition he has also read countless books and articles in English on Islam and terrorism. All of these experiences and studies, combined with our government’s refusal at all levels to understand the issue have scared the “you-know-what” out of him which in turn has inspired him to write his recently published book “CONFESSIONS OF AN (EX) NSA SPY: Why America and its Allies are losing the war on terror.”
