On “Bin Laden Dead – Defeat Terror?” he was in May 2011 as a guest on the television program People and Politics. All these works demonstrate his expertise in terrorism.
For his political thriller “radical” he has left two years, and the result is impressive not only for its realism, but terrified at the same time very fact.
Journalistic expertise and in-depth knowledge has Yassin Musharbash now invested in a novel.
Only a short time is Lutfi Latif, the newly elected MPs from the Green Party, MPs in the German Bundestag, as he is a victim of terrorism. Born in Cairo, he had studied at Harvard and now lives for years with his wife and children in Berlin. His articles, speeches and debate Arabic texts let him fast the shooting star of the worldwide community of exiled Muslims are – in great demand: Even Barack Obama’s speech in Cairo comes from Latif spring.
In his new post he will make a difference, direct political discussions into meaningful pathways, a candidate for Muslims, migrants and for his German. but that he makes himself an enemy of al-Qaeda; whose leaders condemn him to death.
But they are not the only ones who want to see his head roll. In Latif’s Secretariat is Latif young Arab secretary Sumaya al-Shami and privately hired for his personal safety Samuel Sunday accumulate daily threatening letters from Nazi circles of Islamists and Islam haters.
Any research in its own individual way and with their own contacts to Latif’s death be clarified.
Quick appears Confessor video, but just as quickly arise doubts whether the explosives assassin could not come from an entirely different corner. Musharbash directs the reader to a be apt in secret community of Freemasons manner that calls itself “Command Charles Martel”: Fine gentlemen of the better German circles discuss, develop clear goals that Muslims provoke malignant.
