´´Den 18. April 2007 werde ich wohl nie vergessen. Mein Schwager Necati Aydin, der deutsche Christ Tilmann Geske sowie Ugur Yüksel werden in ihrem Büro in der türkischen Stadt Malatya von fünf jungen Männern überfallen, brutal gefoltert und schließlich ermordet. Der ausdrückliche Grund: sie sind Christen, die ihren Glauben in der Türkei offen teilen. Später geben die Täter zu Protokoll, dass sie an diesem Tag auch mich hatten töten wollen ...´´ Wolfgang Häde Wofür lohnt es sich zu leben und zu sterben? Der türkische Christ und Pastor Necati Aydin starb im Alter von knapp 35 Jahren für seinen Glauben an Jesus Christus. Persönlich betroffen und dennoch sachlich, schildert Wolfgang Häde den Lebensweg seines Schwagers. An seiner Geschichte wird beispielhaft der Alltag von Christen und Gemeinden in der Türkei deutlich. Das Gebiet der heutigen Türkei gehört zu den Gegenden, in denen sich das Christentum früh ausbreitete. Heute sind von den über 70 Millionen Einwohnern nur rund 100.000 Christen, unter ihnen vielleicht 3.000 ehemalige Muslime. Die Verfassung garantiert zwar Religionsfreiheit, in der Lebenswirklichkeit begegnen Christen jedoch vielfach Benachteiligungen. In der Gesellschaft gilt: Ein guter Türke ist Muslim.

Farhana Qazi draws on her background as a pioneering counterterrorism professional and a devout Muslim to offer an insider’s view of what drives girls and women to join radical Islamic movements and how we can keep them from making this terrible choice. The first Muslim woman to work for the US government’s Counterterrorism Center, Qazi found herself fascinated, even obsessed, by the phenomena of female extremists. Why, she wondered, would a girl from Denver join ISIS, a radical movement known for its mistreatment of women? Why would a teenage Iraqi girl strap on a suicide bomb and detonate it? From Kashmir to Iraq to Afghanistan, to Colorado to London, she discovered women of different backgrounds who all had their own reason for joining these movements. Some were confused, others taken advantage of, and some were just as radical and dedicated as their male counterparts. But in each case, Qazi found their choices were driven by a complex interaction of culture, context, and capability that was unique to each woman. This audiobook reframes their stories so listeners can see these girls and women as they truly are: females exploited by men. Through hearing their voices and sharing their journeys, Qazi gained powerful insights not only into what motivated these women but also into the most effective ways to combat terrorism - and about herself as well. ´´Through them,” Qazi writes, ´´I discovered intervention strategies that are slowly helping women hold on to faith as they struggle with versions of orthodox Islam polluted by extremist interpretations. And in the process, I discovered a gentle Islam and more about myself as a woman of faith.” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Farhana Qazi.

From the only journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Iraq, here is the riveting account of ordinary people caught between the struggles of nations. Determined to offer an unfiltered version of events, the Washington Post´s Anthony Shadid was neither embedded with soldiers nor briefed by politicians. Because he is fluent in Arabic, Shadid, an Arab-American born and raised in Oklahoma, was able to actually disappear into the divided, dangerous worlds of Iraq. Day by day, as American dreams clashed with Arab notions of justice, he pieced together the human story of ordinary Iraqis weathering the terrible dislocations and tragedies of war. Through the lives of Sunnis and Shiites, men and women, American sympathizers, and outraged young men newly transformed into martyrs, Shadid shows us the journey of defiant, hopeful, resilient Iraq. Moving from battle scenes to subdued streets enlivened only by the call to prayer, Shadid uses the experiences of his characters to illustrate how Saddam´s downfall paved the way not only for democracy but also for an Islamic reawakening and jihad. Night Draws Near, as compelling as it is human, is an illuminating and poignant account from a reporter whose coverage has drawn international attention and acclaim. 1. Language: English.

Female terrorists are a rare phenomenon. Less than ten terrorist organizations throughout the world have women. These terrorist groups are either Marxist (atheist) or Jihadist in their ideologies. This book ascertains, ?What is the role of Islam in female terrorism?? It explores the roles of women in eight jihadist case studies including: Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the Chechen Separatists, Boko Haram, HAMAS, Hezbollah, ISIS, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, and Al Qaeda. Secondary sources and primary sources are used including research conducted on Palestinian women in Israeli prisons who have been convicted of terrorism. It is argued that are three roles for women in Jihadist terrorism: the disposable, the domestic, and the secretary. The theory posited in this book is that the role of women in terrorist groups is similar to their cultural/religious roles in society.
