Omtale ISIS
In this fully revised and updated edition of ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror, American journalist Michael Weiss and Syrian analyst Hassan Hassan explain how these violent extremists evolved from a nearly defeated Iraqi insurgent group into a jihadi army of international volunteers who, with slickly produced murder videos, are spreading violence and mayhem across the globe. Beginning with the early days of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the founder of ISIS's first incarnation, Weiss and Hassan explain who the key players are-from their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to the former Saddam Baathists in their ranks-where they come from, how they have attracted both local and global support, and how they operate-from their social media strategy to their illicit oil revenues. As money and matériel continue to flow into the region to combat the ISIS's spreading terror, other forces-Assad's regime, Russian planes, Iranian Quds Forces, and other Shiite militias-are gaining power and using the fight against ISIS as a means to leverage their agenda in the region.
