Solomon’s Wisdom on Islamism and Terrorism Posted By: Yidwithlid 4/16/2012 12:26:11 PM The Lid, by Barry Rubin Original Article
Hussein Solomon is a South African professor who is the leading expert on revolutionary Islamist terrorism in his own country and Africa generally. He has just finished a book, Global Jihad: The South African Front. Equally interesting, though, is the background to his work.
In the book he explains why he is so intent on this subject. Solomon describes how he was affected by an August 1998 terrorist attack on Planet Hollywood in Cape Town in which two people were killed and others injured or crippled.
