In his book “Forgotten Hostages: A Personal Account of Washington’s First Major Terror Attack” (ISBN 146623766X), Paul Green details the first major terrorist attack on the nation’s capital and shows how terrorists know no bounds and will include innocent people.
Green gives a first-hand account of the terrorist attacks that occurred in Washington D.C. in 1977. He speaks on how anti-Semitism provided fuel for the event and how he and his colleagues faced death threats for 40 hours. Green also explains how he and the rest of the group dealt with the physical and emotional challenges of being held hostage and the efforts required to free them.
Even after 34 years, and living with the ordeal of being held hostage, Green feels that the world unfortunately still hasn’t changed and characterizes this as one of the first homegrown acts of terrorism. He also describes ironies about the siege that he uncovered 34 years later.
“There have been films, books and TV shows about terrorism through the eyes of writers that manufactured the product,” Green says. “My colleagues and I lived and experienced the real thing. The book is a human look at an event that impacted the lives of many people in a world that was very different then the world we live in today. There were a variety of elements associated with the siege including the FBI, local authorities, Arab Ambassadors, members of the media, the White House and State Department.”
Green’s book has relevance to the present day of society with the constant threat of terrorism today’s world faces. Green believes homegrown terrorism will continue to be a major concern for America.
