Of particular interest is the information presented on the Latin American connection with Al Qaeda, specifically Brazil, Venezuela, Trinidad/Tobago and Guyana. Sound familiar?
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to have more information and a deeper understanding of how a terrorist network operates.
The basic theme is al Qaeda's search for and attempts to obtain weapons of mass destruction, particularly nuclear weapons. A secondary theme is the general viewpoint of disgruntled muslims who are greatly offended by the west, even as they have moved here from their homelands.
Although the book was published in 2007, much of the information is several years old, al-Fadl's court testimony was in 2001, before 9/11. Therefore I can't rate the book at the very top of the list. Yes, it appears that the radical fringe seems to have plans to take over the world, but so did Hitler. Plans don't equal accomplishments. According to the book, al-Qaeda has had nuclear weapons for several years but haven't used them. Why?
The book is a good collection of news articles on the subject. And it makes for very scary reading. I can only hope that it isn't true.
The basic message-that, a) the fundamentalists are committed to a world ruled by Muslim law, b) the Fundamentalists have or will soon have nuclear weapons and at a time that suits their long term strategy they will use them and c) they have far more resources in the US and in other countries in the western hemisphere than we acknowledge.
Former FBI chief Muller told an independent interviewer that he considers the threat to be very real.
If the Fundamentalists learned a lesson from 9-11 it was to be more realistic in their expectations of reactions. Also given the political victories they have scored in Europe and their success in following Sun Tzu's time tested strategy of separating the population from the enemy leaders, there is no reason to re-unite the enemy by premature use of nuclear weapons at this time.
I have resisted the temptation to toss in a few more stars due to the importance of the subject. The immediate and secondary physical, medical, financial, political and military effects of the first detonation of a nuclear weapon against civilian target, in a world with many nuclear powers, is almost too scary to contemplate. Forget about the gory discussions of what happens at ground zero, the hundreds of thousands of casualties and chaos, the really scary effects are the secondary effects which could lead to a regional or perhaps intercontinental nuclear war.Read more ›
Dr. Williams has well documented, with footnotes, an excellent appendix including the "Nuclear Fatwa" giving permission to use nuclear weapons, weapons of mass destruction, and cause massive collateral damage in furthering the aims of bin Laden (now sometimes calling himself Osama bin Mohammed bin Laden) to decimate all infidels (non-radical-Muslims). It is written in an easy journalistic style that an intelligent 8th grader can comprehend. Anyone who cares about American and the future of Western Civilisation should read this book--twice. Yes, there is a repeat of some information that could have been edited out (probably in a rush to press) but that is the only criticism of a book that is an instant classic. It is not a manual in "how to understand our Enemy in the hope of appeasement" (misguided Liberalism) but a statement of the facts of what we fight for, along the lines of "Why We Fight" of World War II fame. If you care about the outcome of the centuries-old war for control of humanity, you'll read this compelling book.
Includes terrifying photos--head shots of many perpetrators and a photo of the welcome sign to Islamberg in Hancock, NY, one of many training sites for jihad warriors ON U.S. SOIL!!!
