Howard Gambrill Clark writes a book that is easy for a lay person to understand the many complex aspects of Al-Qa'ida, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ).
We learn that Clark served as a senior intelligence analyst for counter-radicalization at the Department of Homeland Security and was a presidential policy analyst. A former U.S. marine officer, he led intelligence operations in Iraq and commanded more than 40 counterterrorism missions for the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Through his experience he writes a book that sketches out strategies for defeating this world threat by using social media (Facebook, You Tube, etc.), translators, marketing, counter-narrative efforts and a different approach instead of just waging war on the battle field.
After reading this book, I realize the challenge Egypt now faces with the election of a "Muslim Brotherhood" president. Only time will tell how this Arab country will relate to the United States and Israel.
I recommend this book to fellow readers who would like to learn more about Al-Qa'ida. We need to keep ourselves informed.
The modern history of Islamic radicalization is told and cogently analyzed by Mr. Clark, who sees the broader trends and historical context in which violent extremism exists and as such can suggest a strategy to disempower al-Qa`ida and its allies.
