Killing in the Name of Allah?
Töten für Allah? - Religiöse Gründe des Terrorismus
Zacarias Moussaoui, a Frenchman of Moroccan descent has often been referred to as "the 20th hijacker" who was prevented from taking part in the 9/11 attacks only because he was already under arrest.
This documentary listens to a first-hand story by Aisha El Wafi, Moussaoui's mother, about his childhood and youth and attempts to get to the religious-ideological roots of Islamist terror. The relationship between Islam and violence is commented by powerful Muslim voices including Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary-General of Hisbollah in Beirut, Mohamed Mahdi Akef, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo, and Sheikh Adnan Ibrahim, the imam of Vienna's Al-Shura mosque.
