The Book is called The New Jackals. It was published in 1999 in GreatBritain. The publisher was Andre Deutsch Limited. It was also printed inthe UK.
The book has 284 pages but there are 8 pages of pictures like thetwin tower and pictures of these two’s mass destruction. The characters that are in the book are Osama Bin Laden, Ramzi Yousefplus the group of terrorists they both belong to. The first bombing was the Twin Towers. It happened on February26,1993.
Where Ramzi Yousef planted a van filled with explosives in theunderground parking of the World Trade Center. Thank God the World TradeCenter did not blow up. It only damaged it. The size of the bombs thatYousef used had a velocity of15, 000 ft per second and usually the velocityof a bomb is 3,000 ft per second.
Some of the things that were in the bombswere aluminium azide, magnesium azide and also bottled hydrogen. Yousef isa bomb mastermind. On March 4 they searched Mohammad Salameh’s apartmentand found a whole bunch of phone numbers of suspects that could beconnected to the World Trade Center bombing. They also check phone recordsand found that he was making phone calls to Yousef when he was in the U.
S. After they found out Yousef was the person behind all of this Yousef wasone of the most wanted men in the world. Now Yousef was on the run. February 7th 1995 Yousef was arrested. Then after Yousef gets arrested thebook goes through and let’s you find things out about him like were he grewup and took university and stuff like that.
Plus it tells us about when hefirst came to America. Yousef came to America in the summer of 1991. Thenit starts to get into Osama Bin Laden after Yousef is arrested. First Osamadid little terrorist things well they would only think there little but wethink they are big he blew up and killed U.
S soldiers. In 1993 after WTCbombing they considered Osama a big threat. June 1993 Osama was involvedin attempt killing of Prince Abdullah. 1995 the CIA linked Osama being abig terrorist. In 1996 Osama was funding Islamic militants.
August 6 1998Osama bombed a U. S embassy. And at the end of the book it tells aboutfuture of terrorists and things like that. The theme of the book is to show how cruel people can be. They goaround blowing things up.
I didn’t mind the book it was neat how it showedhow the terrorist planned how to blow some stuff up. Overall I would givethe book a 7 out of 10
