I was told to come aloneI was not to wear an identification mark, and would have to leave my cell phone, audio recorder, watch, and a purse at my hotelFor all his life, Souad Mekhennet, a journalist for the Washington Post, who was born and raised in Germany, had to find the balance between the two sides of his Muslim and Western educationIt has also sought to provide a mediation of the voice between these cultures, which too often misunderstand each otherIn this convincing and most evocative of memory, we accompany the Mekhennet as she travels behind the front lines of jihad, from departure in Germany, into the neighborhoods where the 9/11 conspirators were radicalized and the Iraqis the neighborhoods where the Sunnis and Shiites turned against each other, and on the highest point Turkish / Syrian border region where ISIS is a daily presenceIn her travels through the Middle East and North Africa, she documents her cooling troubles with various intelligence services and shows why Arab Spring never lived up to its promise.She then returned to Europe, first to London, where she discovered the identity of the famous ISIS executioner “Jihadists, John”, then to France, Belgium and her native Germany, where terror had come to the heart of Western civilization.Mekhennet from the background gave his unique access to a part of the world most sought after by men, who generally refuse to talk to Western journalistsShe is not afraid to face personal danger to reach people in the circle of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS and their affiliates; when she said to come alone for an interview, she never knows what awaits her at her destinationSouad Mekhennet is an ideal guide to introduce us to the human being behind the sinister titles, as she shares her journey transformation with us.His is a story you won’t soon forget.
