Omar Nasiri

 My name is not Omar Nasiri—or at least that is not the name my parents gave me. It is the name I am using to write this book, but it is only one of a long line of names I have used over the course of my life.

Between 1994 and 2000, Omar Nasiri worked as a secret agent for Europe’s top foreign intelligence services. From the netherworld of Islamist cells in Belgium to the training camps of Afghanistan to the radical mosques of London, he risked his life to defeat the emerging global network that the West would come to know as Al Qaeda.

As an Arab and a Muslim, he was able to infiltrate the rigidly controlled Afghan training camps, where he encountered men who would later be known as some of the most-wanted terrorists on earth. Sent back to Europe by Al Qaeda’s top recruiter with instructions to form a sleeper cell, Nasiri instead spied on the radical imams of “Londonistan” as they funneled cash and aspiring jihadis back to the Afghan camps.
