Guido Steinbergs umfassende, niemals alarmistische politische examine zeichnet die Radikalisierung dieser Kämpfer für Gott und al-Qaida nach und ordnet das Phänomen in die internationale Entwicklung des islamistischen Terrorismus ein. Um die drohende Terrorgefahr in den nächsten Jahren auch hierzulande abzuwehren, fehlen Deutschland bis heute starke und wirksame Sicherheitsmaßnahmen. Eindringlich warnt der Terrorismusexperte daher vor einer Entwicklung, die aus Deutschland kommend auch wieder dorthin zurückkehren kann.
