The Suicide Attacker
Nightmare of the Century
By: Shkelzen Marevci
About the Book
The objective of The Suicide Attacker: Nightmare of the Century is to inform readers how a young man is persuaded to murder innocent humans with his body as the weapon. This book will help the audience to better understand the process of religious radicalization of a young man. It will also enable readers to gain insight into the minds of terrorists and of the internal dynamics of terrorist groups – to know how they think, how they act, what the methods they employ are to manipulate and brainwash the mind of youth, the topics that are discussed in the group, how young people are motivated to commit terrorist acts, how religious narratives are misinterpreted, and where religious deviation starts.
The information contained in this book aims to raise awareness among the youth to help them avoid becoming the prey of charlatans and manipulators that cloak themselves with the aura of true religion and virtuous faith.
