Summary
"Suicide terror has become a fundamental strategic weapon in the confrontation between fundamentalist Islam and its adversaries and now constitutes a threat to world welfare and security. The Shahids proposes that the nature of this terror changed after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In the first book to be published on the subject. Shaul Shay offers both an interpretation and an overall picture of a worldwide phenomenon that is not yet fully recognized, even in Israel which remains a central arena for the perpetration of suicide attacks by terror organizations." "The Shahids analyzes the general phenomenon of Islamic suicide attacks, and provides the reader with tools, comparative analyses, and comprehensive information enabling enlightened examination about suicide attacks worldwide. It explores the possibilities and recommendations for an international struggle against suicide attacks through the implementation of recently published innovative ideas proposed by UN organizations, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch."--Jacket
