Editorial Reviews


"Reformers such as Tawfik Hamid ... must be supported and protected. They should be as well known as Solzhenitsyn, Sakharov and Havel were in the 1980s." —Ayaan Hirsi Ali, best-selling author, opponent of Radical Islam and advocate of the reform of Islam

Inside Jihad is terrific. I wish I had read it 15 years ago when we were trying to decipher radical Islam. I would have made it required reading for my Intel colleagues. It is concise, convincing, compelling—and chilling. I also value Inside Jihad so much that I am constantly rereading it. It has become a staple resource kept handy, and I will refer to it regularly in my consulting and speaking events. It is authoritative, definitive and wonderfully politically incorrect!" —Porter Goss, former Director, Central Intelligence

"A fascinating look at the driving forces behind radical Islam that provides new insight on how to confront its growing threat around the world today.” —Senator John McCain

"Dr. Hamid's knowledge about radical Islam is crucial to understanding and defeating it.” —Ambassador R. James Woolsey, former Director, Central Intelligence 

Inside Jihad is an important resource for anyone interested in learning about the thought processes of the jihadists.” —William Esposito, former Deputy Director, FBI

"A riveting and informative work. Dr. Hamid's understanding of how psychological indoctrination creates a radical Islamist is exceedingly useful.” —Dr. Phyllis Chesler, Emerita Professor, Psychology; author, The New Anti-Semitism and An American Bride in Kabul 

"Inside Jihad is a must-read!” —Dr. Zudhi Jasser, founder and president, American Islamic Forum for Democracy; author,  A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot's Fight to Save His Faith  

“A well-written and highly practical guide to understanding and countering radical Islam.” —Glen Roberts, Editor, TheReligionofPeace.com

"It's a must-read!” —Stephen K. Bannon, Breitbart News 
“A very important book that draws on Dr. Hamid's experiences with jihad in his native Egypt.” —Frank Gaffney, Secure Freedom Radio

“Anyone concerned about the proliferation of radical Islam must read this amazing book.” —Steven Emerson, Executive Director, The Investigative Project on Terrorism

Inside Jihad is a vital contribution. Anyone who cherishes freedom, faith and family will benefit from engaging its pages. I urge all concerned with how to overcome the threat of radical Islam to give it a well-deserved read.” —Thomas P. McDevitt, Chairman, The Washington Times

"Buy this book. Read this book. Refer to this book. Share this book. I've read and reviewed counter-jihad classics by bestselling experts [but if] someone said to me, 'I want to read just one book about jihad,' I'd give that reader Dr. Hamid's book.” —Danusha Goska, Frontpage Mag
