Résumé d'Al-qaeda

Al-Qaeda: Anatomy of Terror examines the network's religious roots, its widespread organizational reach (including the U.S.), its complex political and religious agenda, and its terrifying tactics. The book includes a chilling account of life within al-Qaeda that comes in part from the testimony of members of the Bin Laden group, including Jamal Ahmed al-Fadl, who was arrested for staging the August 1998 suicide bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. It describes al-Qaeda's capabilities of acts of mass destruction, including stockpiles of nuclear "suitcase bombs" and its ability to produce chemical, bacteriological, and radiological weapons. It is impossible to understand the present situation without also understanding the often violent history of Islam and its factions. Al-Qaeda: Anatomy of Terror covers not only the social, political, and economic factors that have led to the creation of this elusive terrorist network, but also uncovers its religious roots in fundamentalist interpretations of the Koran and the widespread support for those interpretations among radical Islamic groups worldwide.
