Synopsis:

He was a brawny, blue-eyed, Irish-American religious convert who became a holy warrior in the name of Islam -- until the holy war began to change.

Aukai Collins grew up hard: abandoned, surviving in the streets and running with thugs. While serving time, he converted to Islam, and went to fight with the Muslims who were targeted for genocide in Chechnya and Bosnia. This led him to Usama bin Laden's training camps in Afghanistan. As terrorist attacks on civilians around the world intensified, Aukai was asked to lead a mission that included hostage taking and the killing of civilians -- something he would not do.

Disillusioned by those who used Islam for their own ends or to attack innocents, Aukai offered his services to the FBI and CIA as a counter-terrorist operative, even getting close to one of the leaders of the September 11 attacks. Yet his greatest strength -- providing insight into the problems surrounding the U.S. government's fight against something it doesn't understand -- was ignored by inept members of the American intelligence community.

My Jihad is an insider's story about the greatest threat to world peace and stability in modern times, told by an unforgettable true-life warrior who has walked the walk, fought the fights, and lived to tell about it.

From the Back Cover: He has been described as a "beefy-linebacker, All-American, blue-eyed, Irish- American mujahid holy warrior" who has led a life of faith, danger, and espionage in some of the most perilous war zones on the face of the Earth.It all started when a fellow worshiper in his San Diego mosque suggested that he go to Bosnia to stop the Serb-sponsored genocide that was taking place there. This eventually led him to Osama bin Laden's training camps in Afghanistan, where he trained with the most aggressive and terrifying mujahadeen in the world. But when a commander asked him to raid a town in Kashmir that would include hostage taking and the killing of civilians, his life took another turn. As he was fighting jihad in Chechnya, terrorist attacks across the world shocked him and he became disillusioned by the way some were using Islam to further their own ends or to attack innocents. He was recruited by the U.S. government as an undercover operative in the fight against terrorism.His callous treatment by inept members of the law enforcement and intelligence community provides insight into why the U.S. government can't fight against something it doesn't understand. The FBI and CIA have now spent millions of dollars to understand the events that led up to September 11, even as the information was theirs for the taking. Aukai not only became familiar with one of the leaders of the attack on America, he also became acquainted with one of the hijackers and was invited to return to Osama bin Laden's training camps. My Jihad is the personal story about the biggest threat to world peace and stability in our generation, as told by an insider. (5 1/2 x 8 1/4, 192 pages)
