Jihad academy : the rise of Islamic state by Nicolas Hénin( Book )

29 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than a decade, French journalist Nicolas Hénin has reported from the front lines of conflict in the Middle East, much of his time spent in Iraq and Syria. He witnessed the events leading to the rise of Islamic State, and in June 2013, he was himself captured by ISIS and spent ten months in captivity with James Foley and others who were beheaded soon after Hénin was released. Those barbarities, and the first strikes against Islamic State, prompted Hénin to present in Jihad Academy what he knows IS to be, in contrast to the misperceptions he sees perpetuated on an ongoing basis. Hénin sees Islamic State as a political entity, having arisen out of a sense of injustice and lack of hope, and as the natural result of the Western inability to support Syrian democracy activists. The West, however, sees IS only as a terrorist organization, ignoring its political message and goals; by doing so, we act as a recruitment agent for Islamic State and largely overlook the greatest victims of IS violence--civilians on the ground. IS will only be ultimately defeated, he argues, by the people of the region, just as others have overthrown groups that practiced political violence on their people. Jihad Academy is a fresh and powerful assessment by a writer with the perspective of a historian, the passion of a journalist long committed to the region, and the credibility of someone who has witnessed terrorism first-hand. Hénin's is an important new voice in the ongoing debate about our role in the Middle East. -- Provided by publisher

Syrie, la satire contre la dictature : la révolution au bout du pinceau by Nicolas Hénin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

La révolution syrienne s'accompagne d'un déferlement de violence. Pacifique à l'origine, elle s'est progressivement militarisée pour répondre à la répression. Torture, règlements de compte, confessionnalisme et extrémisme gangrènent ses objectifs. Mais dans les montagnes, le village de Kafranbel résiste avec des calicots et des caricatures. La révolution syrienne s'accompagne d'un déferlement de violence. Pacifique à l'origine, elle s'est progressivement militarisée pour répondre à la répression. Torture, règlements de compte, confessionnalisme et extrémisme gangrènent ses objectifs. Mais dans les montagnes, le village de Kafranbel résiste avec des calicots et des caricatures. Elles sont l'oeuvre d'Ahmad, un ancien prothésiste dentaire qui, révolution aidant, s'est mis au dessin. L'artiste rêvait d'une révolution pacifique, mais il a été rattrapé par la réalité de la guerre. Dès qu'il le peut, lui aussi va donner un coup de main aux combattants. Devenu célèbre sur les réseaux sociaux grâce à l'humour grinçant de ses slogans et dessins qui illustrent une actualité plutôt âpre, le village de Kafranbel se démarque par un sens de la dérision qui interpelle les internautes du monde entier
Toxic Somalia( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"It costs just $2.50 to dump a tonne of toxic waste off the coast of Somalia. It's the world' cheapest rubbish dump and a nice little earner for certain westerners, who would have to pay $1,000 to dump their trash back home. But hundreds of Somalis are falling ill, poisoned by other peoples'waste. Barrels of nuclear waste frequently wash up on the shores of Puntland and the beaches are often strewn with dead fish. Who is dumping this waste in Somali waters? Who in Somalia is making money from it? Two Italian journalists have already lost their lives for asking such questions. We re-open the inquiry. It's an investigation that leads us into the shady underworlds of the Italian mafia, Somali pirates and the lethal nuclear waste industry."--Container
