“Shimson Issaki insightfully analyzes the dangers posed by Islamic fundamentalist terrorism around the world. He describes where terrorism stems from and proposes practical ways of combating it, especially Al-Qaeda’s operations in Iraq. He critically examines the lessons of the past large-scale attacks (9/11, Bali, London ,Madrid), in order to present original and useful strategies for preventing future attacks. Shimshon Issaki has vast experience and understanding in terrorism, Islam and the Arab world. He brings his unique expertise to this book, which is a must-read for anyone involved or interested in the global war against terror.” Shabtai Shavit, former Director of the Israeli Mossad.
