Beschreibung

The July 2005 London bombings are yet another example of how Europe has emerged as one of the key battlegrounds in the global War on Terror. The region has become a critical "ground zero" for Islamist terrorists, not only as a target but as a base of operations. The implications for the United States are tremendous: under existing law, for example, terrorists carrying European passports could easily enter the country. It is not a coincidence, in fact, that every attack planned or executed against the United States, including 9/11, has had strong European ties.

Al Qaeda in Europe is the first book in English that dissects Islamist terrorism in Europe. Written by Lorenzo Vidino, European expert at The Investigative Project — a Washington, D.C.-based counterterrorism institute and America's largest private data-gathering center on militant Islamic activities —Al Qaeda in Europe fills a critical gap in the understanding of the new threats posed by Islamist terrorism.

Vidino analyzes the causes of this dangerous situation while providing an extensive historical overview of Islamist terrorist activities in Europe. The book shows how terrorists — most of them native to the Continent — raise money, communicate, and hide in plain sight in the suburbs of London, Paris, and Amsterdam. It also presents with painful clarity the difficulties that law enforcement agencies worldwide have had in shutting down terror cells. Finally, the book describes three of the most important networks operating in Europe. Vidino analyzes events such as the Madrid train bombings, the thwarted plot to attack various European capitals with chemical weapons, and the movements of hundreds of European Muslims who are joining terrorist groups in Iraq to fight U.S. forces.

Vidino includes fascinating information taken from a dozen countries' original documentation (intelligence reports, indictments, court transcripts), plus transcripts of conversations among al Qaeda operatives that have been intercepted by intelligence agencies.

Al Qaeda in Europe is authoritative, informative, and written in a lively narrative that will captivate general readers, and become a valuable new resource for scholars and government officials.

Pressestimmen

"Given last month's riots in France [Al Qaeda in Europe] could not have arrived in the bookstores in a more timely fashion. This is the first book to examine Islamic terrorism in Europe...This book is yet another wake up call to anyone who does not yet grasp how widespread the Islamic jihad is as it describes three of the most important terrorist networks in Europe and analyses events there."
Foreword by Steven Emerson
Director of the Investigative Project
"Although the book was completed prior to the July 2005 London bombings, it nevertheless succeeds in explaining the magnitude of the jihadi threat in Europe."
Book Reviews
"Mr. Vidino offers valuable insights on the workings and organization of Al Qaeda in Europe and the threat this terrorist group poses not only to European countries, but also to the United States."
Congressman Elton Gallegly
Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Europe & Emerging Threats
"Vidino peels back the layers of the al Qaeda networks in Europe and shows how lax immigration and asylum laws, coupled with the availability of false documents and financing, have allowed terrorists to operate in Europe with relative ease. Thoroughly researched."
Representative Ed Royce, Chairman
Subcommittee on International Terrorism & Nonproliferation
House International Relations Committee
