Titel: Dirty wars
Sub titel: Britain's collusion with radical Islam
In "Dirty Wars", acclaimed historian Mark Curtis shows how Britain has helped create the Islamic jihadist terrorism that now threatens us. Exploring how the bombings of 7/7 can be traced back to groups and individuals trained and supported by Britain, Curtis draws on formerly secret government files to unravel a long recent history of British governments' secret collusion with and direct involvement in Islamic terrorism, from 1945 to the present day. From the overthrow of Iran's popular government during the 1950s and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, to Libya, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia's ruthless internal repression, "Dirty Wars" shows Britain's hidden hand in the rise of global terrorism. At a time when British forces are being reconfigured to fight this new enemy, this urgent, explosive book shows how British leaders now posing as the public's defenders have escaped accountability for their previous policies. In reality, they are our greatest threat.
