More To Read

thumbnail_img_6260-1I got few book today, one of them and the first I’m reading is this one.

In ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror, American journalist Michael Weiss and Syrian analyst Hassan Hassan explain how these violent extremists evolved from a nearly defeated Iraqi insurgent group into a jihadi army of international volunteers who behead Western hostages in slickly produced videos and have conquered territory equal to the size of Great Britain.

Beginning with the early days of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the founder of ISIS’s first incarnation as “al-Qaeda in Iraq,” Weiss and Hassan explain who the key players are from their elusive leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to the former Saddam Baathists in their ranks where they come from, how the movement has attracted both local and global support, and where their financing comes from.

Definitely a good, long, informative reading.
