Top Customer Reviews
"Kill Khalid" is an intense book, with every meaning of the word. McGeough brings to light some of the best-kept secrets of Middle Eastern politics in a very talented manner. He does an excellent job of explaining the reasons for some of the most twisted of diplomatic plots & actions; showing just how sensitive these matters were and how each and every step taken in Middle East politics has an amplified effect on the world at large.
"Kill Khalid" is more than just the story of Hamas and its mysterious and charismatic leader - it's an insight into the minds of leaders and influential philosophers that have shaped the current Palestinian situation ever since the start of the British Mandate in the early 90s.
Paul McGeough does an excellent job of telling a sensitive story, researching and putting forth the facts as they happened. It's very objectively told, and McGeough doesn't hold back any punches when it comes to putting the blame for the current mess where it belongs: on the shoulders of politicians from ages past.
McGeough does a splendid job of explaining such a difficult subject in an incredibly easy and down-to-earth manner, and "Kill Khalid" is a thriller that shares much wisdom and imparts much knowledge while remaining very comprehensible and a - dare I say it - fun read.
Kill Khalid: The Failed Mossad Assassination of Khalid Mishal and the Rise of Hamas
The incredible, true story of the failed Israeli assassination attempt on Khalid Mishal is more riveting than any spy novel. The text is well-written and fast-paced.
The story has a tremendous ring of truth about it. The background is thoroughly researched, including material from the author's interviews with important sources including Mishal himself. The author is a distinguished former newspaper editor who has been writing on the middle east for decades.
Unexpectedly, I found the book also gave me much better perspective and insight into the Israeli-Palestinian conlict. I found it very rewarding on that score alone.
I thoroughly recommend this book to all.
I do not think I have anything to write more than I DID recommend this book for family and friends.
