Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
An alarming and enlightening first-hand account of what's really going on behind the borders of the Islamic State.
ISIS, IS, the Islamic State. The name is chilling. The images are horrific. This is a group that chops the heads off journalists - and yet one, the German J rgen Todenh fer, went out of his way to get an invitation to visit ISIS fighters in Mosul to ask them to explain their beliefs. This book is the result of his conversation. My Journey into the Heart of Terror- ten days in the Islamic State shows how the organisation grew from its al-Qaeda roots and takes a harsh look at the West's role in its past and today. Only by understanding, Todenh fer believes, can we move forward and combat ISIS's radical, violent interpretation of Islam and the terror and destruction it brings.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 249-) and index.
