Every American should read this story because the world needs the US more then ever.

My Part in 9/11 is the fascinating and entertaining tale of Tarek who was born in Germany of an Egyptian father and a German mother. He grows up there exposed to radical Islam, fascism, Anti-Semitism and German Anti-Americanism.

With 16 he goes to spend a high school exchange year in the Bible Belt in a mainly baptist community. In a mood of adolescent rebellion against his host environment he decides to adopt the pose of a radical jihadist. What begins as a prank becomes increasingly bitter and Tarek commits the mistake of his life. Years later life offers him the chance to redeem himself.

Finally Tarek comes to the conviction that only through the existence of the USA a half-decent world is guaranteed.
