Imagine a world where a boys dreams dictate the behavior of warriors in battle; where a young couples only release from forbidden love is death; where religious extremism, blind hatred, and endemic corruption combine to form a lethal ideology that can hijack a mans life forever. This is the world of Terrorists in Love. A former federal prosecutor and congressional investigator, Ken Ballen spent five years as a pollster and a researcher with rare accessvia local government officials, journalists, and clericsinterviewing more than a hundred Islamic radicals, asking them searching questions about their inner lives, deepest faith, and what it was that ultimately drove them to jihad. Intimate and enlightening, Terrorists in Love opens a fresh window into the realm of violent extremism as Ballen profiles six of these menfrom Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabiarevealing a universe of militancy so strange that it seems suffused with magical realism. Mystical dreams and visions, the demonic figure of the United States, intense sexual repression, crumbling family and tribal structuresthe story that emerges here is both shocking and breathtakingly complex. Terrorists in Love introduces us to men like Ahmad Al-Shayea, an Al Qaeda suicide bomber who survives his attack only to become fiercely pro-American; Zeddy, who trains terrorists while being paid by Americas ally, the Pakistani Army; and Malik, Taliban leader Mullah Omars personal seer. Lifting the veil on the mysterious world of Muslim holy warriors, Ballen probes these mens deepest secrets, revealing the motivations behind their deadly missions and delivering a startling new exploration of what drives them to violence and why there is yet an unexpected hope for peace. An extraordinarily gifted listener and storyteller, Ballen takes us where no one has dared to godeep into the secret heart of Islamic fundamentalism, providing a glimpse at the lives, loves, frustrations, and methods of those whose mission it is to destroy us.
