What a great read this is! Tensions run higher and higher as you progress through the book towards the last chapter, where author sheds light on more current events and developments. But this isn't spy fiction, this is a true story of how western intelligence got messy with political Islam, treating it first as its own weapon and after as an enemy. Common thought is, it all started during the soviet war in Afghanistan. But this book gives an amazing insight not only into where it really started, but all the major players and there are quite a few. Information is not only presented clearly, it is backed up by facts and excerpts from interviews. There's not a single paragraph where you'd feel author is biased towards either side. And yet, it is not a cold, dry, dispassionate read that by aiming at impartiality looses the reader with simple stating of chronology of events. A possible turnoff for some might be that the author introduces too many characters at one time so you might feel compelled to grab pen and paper and draw diagrams of who's connected to whom. But as more current events are shed light upon, story becomes simpler and easier to follow. At the end, reader ends up with a terrific insight into how Islamism gained almost absolute control over Muslims in Europe and how western intelligence agencies actually helped it achieve such control.
