Read full description of the books Ислямска държава и преначертаването на Близкия изток:In presenting a new Caliphate, the Islamic State attempts to offer a contemporary political image of itself analogous to that which the early Zionists projected, the word democracy is not as valued by IS as it was by Israel's founders.
The Islamist Phoenix reads like an outgrowth of periodical pieces, hence there is a steady redundancy from chapter to chapter. The ideas are forwarded clearly and without the baggage of bias(well, until later, as you'll see). The phoenix of the title refers how Salafism has responded to the various conflicts of the last 15 years and re-imagined itself presently as a tech savvy Islamic State, eager to conduct the business of state while maintaining a diet of terror for its opponents. The late Al Qaeda leader in Iraq al Zarqawi appears to have been crucial in this turn of events, while the US was painting Sadr City as the inner circle of Hell. The missed opportunites and opinions of the West is a recurring thene in the Napoleoni's analysis. The Islamic concept of takfir refers to apostasy or heresy is readily bandied back and forth between Sunnis and Shia. It gives a free hand to what many perceive as the barbarism of ISIL. It was at this point of the discussion that term genocide and the name Hitler appeared. I had to wince.
Napoleoni offers no easy solutions. The current proxy conflicts being waged against both IS as well Assad's Syrian government are also grossly counter-productive. This only appears to lead to further regional destabilization. 2.5 stars.

In he 1980s she worked for a UK registered Russian Bank, Moscow Narodny Bank, which acted as the foreign branch of the Bank of Foreign Trade.

She lives in London and in the US with her husband and their four children.
Napoleoni is currently working at a book linking the post 9/11 Western foreign policy, the kidnapping and refugee crisis. Based upon original interviews with former hostages, negotiators, member of the crisis unit, kidnap owes and refugees, the book will unveil how post 9/11 Western foreign policy is responsible for the birth of a new breed of criminal and terrorist engaged in kidnapping of Westerners and trafficking migrants. Napoleoni defines these people Merchant of Men.
