Author(s): Douglas Thompson; Youssef Nada
The authorized biography of Youssef Nada, known as the Muslim Brotherhood's international political foreign emissary, a man who knows most of the untold story of more than half a century of rage and revolution
Through war, global terrorism, and complex international crises, Youssef Nada was there, a true eyewitness to history, a participant and power broker in events which shaped it. This biography explains his hard, clear, lucid, vision; sharing his insight into the terror of Lockerbie in Scotland, the "rehearsals" for September 11 and the July 7 London bombers, the Iran-Contra affair, the Beirut kidnapping of Terry Waite, and many more deals and horrors that have affected entire nations. Never promising answers, Nada offers possible solutions through the ideas and philosophy he subscribes to as an ambassador of reason, a peacemaker, and as the de facto foreign minister of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group with a membership of more than 100 million worldwide, with many millions holding pivotal positions in the United States, the UK, and throughout continental Europe. His involvement in all aspects of the "Arab Spring" in Egypt is discussed. Youssef Nada was, until now, the hidden mystery at the heart of the Middle East; the part of the puzzle no one could place. After September 11, Nada, known throughout much of the world as a humanitarian, was branded a global terrorist and listed as such by the United States and the United Nations. Nada believes that, as he is a representative of the most influential of all Islamic organizations, all the international intelligence agencies moved against him. Now, he has decided to step completely out of the shadows and tell the story of his life.
