Enemy Combatant: My Imprisonment at Guantanamo, Bagram, and KandaharWell i read this book a while back and just started today to re read it I loved the bookit made me laugh and cry moazzam begg is a great narrator and i was never bored at any time uring reading enemy combatant I like the way he ended the book the poem was emotional anyways basically you all gota read it to know how it really is D It makes my heart ache to read this book How can my country or any country hold someone without charge for years There can be no justification for it and the only explanation is that the American government at the highest levels Stealing the Gila: The Pima Agricultural Economy and Water Deprivation, 1848-1921 does not care about our values of freedom or justiceMoazzam uotes from Malcolm X in this book and I ve included the uote here I m not anti America and Iidn t come here to condemn America I want to make that very clear I came here to tell the truth and if the truth condemns American then she stands condemned This is a very important book This book shows how little the American intelligence really knows about the Islamic movements He mentions that the FBI thought Tabligee Jammah Muslim version of missionaries were working with al aeda The truth is that they have two Literature and Dictatorship in Africa and Latin America 1958-1987 different ideologies andon t really get a long and tabigees Academic Advising Approaches don t believe in arm resistance they only work with the Muslims American need to understand that Muslims will always care about Palestine Kashmir and other area s that are under attack however thatoes not mean that they support Al aeda This innocent man was sent to prison because he helped the mujahedeen same as Charlie Wilson why is he not in Getmo It s really unfortunetly that really struggle for freedom has been stained by these Al aeda terriorstMoazzam Begg was innocent besides what Wiki or other racist pro republican sites might claim because as an american you are innocent until proven guilty unless you are a muslim or African American since the US never charged him that means that they never had anything on him I think the US government has on the Warlords that they are protecting with American troops then anyone in Getmo because they all have blood on thier hands including American blood Please look up the history of the Northern Alliance Watch the WHOS WHO IN AFRICAN AMERICAN LITERATURE VOL.1 documentary called the convoy ofeath and Nat Geo Documentary Taliban Uprising Battle of ala i Jangi Since Moazzam Begg s was released from one of the toughest and the most notorious concentration camps in the world Guantanamo Bay Agricultural Science for CSEC Examinations detention centre I have been than curious to read about his experiences both within the Guantanamo Bay and what led to his unlawfuletention I have read this book some months earlier and later again for the purpose of this review and so that I can share the story of one of the most recognisable Muslim faces in BritainThis story is not about a gang related terror group nor Alphas Abused Mate did the experiences in this story lead to events that caused mass killings of innocent people This is the story of Moazzam Begg who faced indescribable levels of personal trials and tribulationsuring his years in an American concentration camp The term concentration or torture camp is never used in the book to my recollection however after reading this book and other books on a similar subject the Guantanamo Bay etention centre is our own modern ay concentration camp by any other name Hitler Stalin Netanyahu and Pol Pot would be proud of our Anglo American achievementsThe book starts from the time when Begg was in Pakistan on a family vacation enjoying the land of his ancestors He was in his room playing around on this laptop when there was a late night knock at the Climate Smart Agriculture (Natural Resource Management and Policy Book 52) door and upon answering it he was surrounded by Pakistani police and intelligence officers Disorientated and overwhelmed with irritation emotion andistress Begg became unsure of what was happening to him Unknown to Begg his life was about to inextricably change for the worse He was about to enter the jaws of hell and never to return as the same man For the next couple of years he was constantly moved from one etention camp to another being interrogated next couple of years he was constantly moved from one etention camp to another being interrogated tortured when finally one night he whispered to a fellow Saint Germain On Alchemy detainee how much of this can we take it is becoming impossible The early chapters in the book takes us through hisaily life which was much the same as any other young man with family responsibilities often exciting sometimes not so Nevertheless he Chasing the Red Queen describes in his book about how happy he was and how much he loved his wife and children He was also exceedingly overwhelmed with excitement about the forthcoming birth of their new baby Life was pretty much good until that one fateful nightThe outline of the book talks about how emotionallyetached confused and bemused he became by what he was experiencing No one was talking to him Everyone seemed to be talking at him Shouting screaming yelling at him followed with very short periods of joy and some rest bite and then it all started again with threats and intimidation At one point in the book in order to share his inner emotions he commented that he saw an English British speaking official and he became overjoyed with eep emotion and relief and thought this man had come to protect him begg man had come to protect him Begg realised this man was not his imagined superhero to fly him back to England he was in fact another one of his callous and torturous jailersThe book picks up in the middle of cha. The shocking firsthand account Chicago Sun Times of one man's years inside the notorious American prison and his Kafkaesue struggle to clear his nameWhen Enemy Combatant was first published in the United States in hardcover in 2006 it garnered sensational reviews and its author was featured in the New York Times the Los Angeles Times on National Public Radio and on ABC News A second generation British Muslim Begg had been Cial systemThe books finished with Begg being measured for clothing where he uring a moment of madness believed he was going to be given a made to measure tailored suited only to find he was given an T shirt made in Bangladesh with a pair of jeans During his time in The Columbia Guide to South African Literature in English Since 1945 (The Columbia Guides to Literature Since 1945) detention he wrote several poems and there was one poem that stuck out than mostStill the paper Io penKnowing not or ever when As Hijacking the Brain dreams begin and nightmares end I m homeward bound to beloved tendTowards the end of his tormented time in Guantanamo Bay and on arrival back in England he came to write one of the hardest truths I ve had to face since my return has been the complicity of my own government in what happened I picked this book up at a reading by Moazzam Begg in London Not only is Moazzam s story incredible but as a man both in person and in the book he is thoughtful intelligent and kind in spite of the immense brutality he suffered for three years I would highly recommend this book to anyone it gives a uniue opportunity to see what life is like for Guantanamo Bay prisoners and the incredible lack of evidence that has landed many of them there I m biased so not much to say here A terrifying awakening to what the US government isoing to people worldwide If you believe that all lives of all people everywhere are just as good as American lives you will want to read this book If you feel like torture and injustice could never occur at the hands of Americans you should to read this book If you support a foreign policy of secret prisons kangaroo courts and 僕のヒーローアカデミア 3-4 detention centers you must read this book and take a walk in the shoes of an unjustly treated man who happened to be an English speaking Muslim living in Kabuluring the initial US attack in 2003 The author either a pious bookseller and humanitarian or a supporter of al aida The Path to Gay Rights depending on whom you ask was abducted from his house in Islamabad and spent three years in the titular prisons Begg is by other accounts a reasonable and charming man and was a model prisoner who got along with several of his guards His personality shows through in his prose which is readable clear and impassioned without veering into needless vitriol though heoes not bother to hide his Karen vs Alien disdain for American culture and political ignorance There are two ways to read the book the unrepentant apologia of a liar who got caught funding terrorism or the clarion call of an innocent man nearlyestroyed by an unjust and unthinking systemPersonally I think there s a bit of truth to both Begg leaves out an earlier arrest in his memoir and even at times condemns himself from his own mouth It isn t just a post 911 America that suspected him he was investigated by MI5 as early as 1998 He also efends the Taliban claims that he was allowed to build a girls school under them hints that 911 was known ahead of time by US authorities who let it happen and thinks that Afghanistan was attacked because it was a purist Islamic state which is ludicrous But at it happen and thinks that Afghanistan was attacked because it was a purist Islamic state which is ludicrous But at same time the outrage of this book is that even if Begg was as bad as Bush and company said he should have gotten a trial The charges against him should have been made public and plain He and all the others should have been treated with a modicum of humanity which is not the same as respect or complacency And certainly US and British intelligence should have conducted interrogations with intelligence and coordination not the repetitive unhelpful sessions by any number of alphabet agencies vying with each other instead of sharing information At the very least Begg s memoir shows that the aftermath of the War on Terror was as badly handled in the prisons as it was in the White House An extremely well written book filled with the etails of a person who some regard as a terrorist even though that was never proven in any court of law I have a new appreciation for the Muslim people and the trials they must endure because of their religion A very very well written book I enjoyed reading this book BUT I couldn t put his though process into acceptance he leaves the UK to go live in Afghanistan because it is his though process into acceptance he leaves the UK to go live in Afghanistan because it is true Islam country Really true Islam is killing each other true Islam is not contributing in the science of the world advancement How Alien Disclosure at Area 51 did this guy understand Islam like this is beyond me and itoes show he lacked education big time Page after page the uran asks us to uestion and learn The life the prophet was full of moral out lines and it left everything else for us So how come there are upon us people like that people who simply say we know a better Islam than that the prophet brought from Allah and I apologies and ask for forgiveness from Allah for what I sayAbove all this guy hates his wife and family otherwise I can t fathom how he goes to a country where they sleep with young boys and gang rape as tribal retaliation if he had any mercy in his heart toward his kid and wife You know what maybe he is a good person and God from above Singing the Law decide to put him through this to clean him from the sin of his thoughts and the sin against his family Above all the book shows that a lot of theetainees by American forces are not really criminals rather really missed up in their brains will written though and full of Alchemic details some times too much there is repetion though I liked the book hated the guy. Ly stripping readers of the comforting lie that somehow theetainees aren't really like us with emotional attachments intellectual interests and fully eveloped humanityRecommended by the Financial Times and Tikkun magazine and a ColorLines Editors Pick of Post 911 Books Enemy Combatant is a forcefully told up to the minute political storynecessary reading for people on all sides of the issue Publishers Weekly starred revi. ,
Pter 3 where Begg was asked by several boyish friends he fancied a to friends if fancied trip to into the heart of the Taliban region to visit some of the so called training camps Begg had thought that these camps were not what we would recognise as military camps but like a field event for some countryside orientation adventures Whether this was naivety or stupidity whatever the escription it is not illegal to misinterpret the role and functions of such camps After all he was a young man with a sense of boyish adventure who are we to say he should not have gone Except maybe his family who Problem Solving in Data Structures Algorithms Using C++ did advise him not to go to Afghanistan because of the political instability in the country Throughout much of the book Begg explains that he had either met or been associated withifferent people of interest to the intelligence services one such person was a Tunisian man he knew and who he later found out was arrested in Dubai on terrorism charges which I suppose would also make Begg an object of curiosity for the intelligence community on both sides of the pond The wider explanation for this was that Begg was a volunteer charity worker in Pakistan and later in Afghanistan and that he also worked in an Islamic Bookshop in Birmingham England and these roles Literature of Africa did occasionally collide and bring him into contact with people of interest This howeveroesn t automatically translate towards him supporting their ideas or actions or indeed participating in their worldview of politics Whilst in custody in Pakistan he was constantly shoved slapped punched and kicked by his American tormentors persistently and relentlessly asked if he was a friend or knew of Usamah Bin Ladin or Mullah Umar Begg was finally moved to Afghanistan first to Kandahar and then to Bagram from where he was flown to Guantanamo Bay On arrival he explains his emotions and feelings as something that were just simply unexplainable In fact he had never experienced such shocking images of men shackled like wild animals and many sitting in metal cages hogtied and hooded for hours sometimes for Women and Sustainable Agriculture: Interviews With 14 Agents of Change days This was his new home his new place for interrogation This torture camp he very uickly realised was specificallyesigned to create as much human suffering as possible and clearly this was something you would have found suited to the Crossing the color line in American politics and African American literature days of the African Boar War period than in modern 21st Century AmericaHis experiences are explicitly set out inifferent parts of the book each experience edging beyond the capacity for human suffering yet with pure willpower and Rebuilding determination he managed to continue on He saw military police screaming atetainees calling them Intro to Alien Invasion dogsesecrating the Muslim holy book and even keeping them awake with loud music ensuring constant sleep Therapy of Love deprivation This was what he refers to as his hardest test In Chapter 8 he remarks that he finally met otheretainees from various parts of Europe Asia Africa the Middle East and Russia It was at this point he Democratic Phoenix: Reinventing Political Activism dawned upon him that the Americans were preparing to send him to Egypt to be tortured and interrogated This frightened him enormously even after the experiences he had already suffered This he referred to as theevils agents Museum Activism doing the work for the Americans While he awaited his fate he addsuring his stay in Guantanamo Bay he was often in such crammed conditions that he had to sleep standing up The torture and the agony was unrelentingThere were moments of what he refers to trials of strengths where he was constantly abused and enied basic human needs and would be punished if he spoke or asked for any assistance One such moment was a comical episode where a female camp guard from DC asked Begg where he was from he replied that he was from England she thought for a moment he remarked then asked y all got lions and elephants and shit there to which Begg calmly replied only in zoos I m from England not Uganda He shares his only sense of reality and some constellation was when he was allowed to write to his wife Sometime later he started to receive profoundly redacted replies from his family and British lawyers who were working to get him released Although he would receive visits from his appointed legal team such visits were constantly supervised by a US military lawyer and almost impossible to have conversations which left little oubt that they were not listened into In mid 2014 Begg says that he finally received a letter from Clive Stafford Smith a British lawyer who said that he would be representing him His journey towards freedom had begunThe final parts of the book travels through the period of what he generally termed as a mockery of justice where the illusion of justice was prevalent than the actual practice of human rights and fair treatment free from torture and inhumane treatment He was given a Falling For A Kingpin document by his interrogators which was an admission of guilt that he had signed some years earlier when he arrived at Guantanamo Bay Begg always claimed thisocument was signed under Violence and Trauma in Selected African Literature duress Begg constantly argued that he was not a member of Al a idah or the Taliban whilst acknowledging he had visited so called training camps in Afghanistan He refers to thisocument as a functional paper The Social Rebellion designed only to find him guilty and then for the Americans to manufacture the evidence to fit the alleged crime A clear mockery of the judi.
