Publisher's Summary

For the first time, here's a first-person account of life inside the Jihad. This is a detailed portrait of a complex man who fought on both sides. From Europe's burgeoning terrorist underground in the 1990s, to the training camps of Afghanistan, to the radical mosques of London, Omar Nasiri offers a unique and chilling perspective, on both the rise of Al Qaeda and the intelligence services that struggled to contain it.
Inside the Jihad is the story of a double agent operative working for UK and French intelligence by infiltrating Al Qaeda training camps. During his time in the camps, Nasiri met all of the top terrorist leaders, including Osama bin Laden, and engaged in a wide range of illegal activities. Strikingly well-written and gripping, Inside the Jihad is a terrifying, suspenseful read.

Eye opening for an American

This book as opened a new look at the Muslim religion and the people of this religion. It allows me to better understand many of happenings that have taken place for many years and the war we now find ourselves in. A War that may never end as long as both sides have the goals we have set before us. We will never get the other to blink long enough to stop these maddening battles we wage against each other . We will just continue to drag the innocent into this death we wage on each other. Thank you for such a enlightening book and look into your story and the story of this war, this Jihad.

Insightful, even if a bit Neurotic

The book is an easy read--more exciting than many novels I have read. Omar recalls his spying adventures vividly and offers tremendous insights into his feelings and his assessment of the psychology of those around him. You do have to wade through his neuroticism, paranoia, and blind hypocrisy, but in the end the gain is more valuable than being perturbed by the author's personal shortcomings.
