Dr. Jürgen Todenhöfer, author of "Why do you kill, Zaid?", on the West's policies in the Muslim world
Islamic News Channel
25 April 2008
Jürgen Todenhöfer's book "Why do you kill, Zaid?" is an attempt to shed light on the other side of the story. It reports on how Iraqi people talk about the war, when there are no heavily-armed GIs in the vicinity. When neither helicopters nor humvees have been "cleansing" and securing the area for hours beforehand, for politicians and press convoys. "Why do you kill, Zaid?" gives a voice to those whom Pentagon press officers never take their visitor delegations to see - members of the Iraqi resistance. The book attempts to explain why this resistance is not only fighting against American troops, but also against Al Qaeda terrorists and the foreign-backed private militias of Iraqi politicians. It aims to clarify the fundamental differences between resistance fighters and terrorists.
