As a young man in Cairo, Hamid Tawfik was recruited into the Egyptian terrorist group Al-Jamaa Islamiya. While he never carried out a terrorist attack, he espoused radical Islam and met with senior terrorist leaders, including Ayman Al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda’s second in command. Impelled by his conscience, Dr. Tawfik would go on to make a decisive break with Islamic terrorism. Today, he calls himself a “reformer of Islam” and, despite threats to his life, speaks out against the extremists whose ranks he once shared. In the following video, Dr. Hamid Tawfik discusses his way into and out of Islamic terrorism and exposes the psychology of Muslim terrorists from the inside out. He also sends a special message to the Jewish people. To watch the video, click here.
