How can you know what a terrorist thinks?
The Western media are so busy analysing who, what, where, when and how that they never answer the question why. This book is about the why behind Islamic terrorism.
Terrorists have written many books and pamphlets explaining their position, but most westerners are unable to understand them. Dr Mark Gabriel makes a major breakthrough by identifying the five pillars of radical philosophy – the bedrock beliefs that cut through all radical writings. Dr Gabriel uses the writings of Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and others to show how terrorists justify their actions through the Quran, the life of Muhammad and Islamic history. Finally, Dr Gabriel describes how earlier terrorist groups were stopped and shows how the world can work together to stop the terrorists of today.
