Why radical Islam remains a deadly threat and why it is so pervasive in the Muslim world A quarter-century ago, Tawfik Hamid was recruited by Jamaa Islamiya, an Islamic terror group led by Aimon al-Zawahiri, the man who replaced Osama bin Laden to become the leader of al-Qaeda. Eventually, Hamid recognized the insidious nature of violent jihad and rejected its distortions of the Qur'an, the holy book of the Muslim faith. Ever since, he has pursued a path of reformation within Islam by writing new interpretations of the book's key texts and by sharing his message in mosques. Inside Jihad reveals Hamid's insights about the Islamic terror movement drawn from his personal experiences. As a medical doctor and a psychologist, he helps readers understand the jihadist mindset by explaining the meaning of jihad and the role that sex, petrodollars, and the hijab for women play in its proliferation. He shares his bold plan for an Islamic reformation and the religion's integration as one of the world's peaceful religions.

This is a great book for non Muslims and Muslims to gain an unvarnished understanding of Islam. Perhaps more credible than other books as the author is Muslim, a former radical Islamist and an expert in cognitive psychology. Hopeful ending with common sense suggestions for bringing Islam into the 21st century. If you read only one book on this subject - pick this one. Everyone should know something about Islam.
