Dan and Cressie in Bangkok: an open-minded couple, until they share the massage parlor prostitute. Cressie wears an amulet of Aeshma, the Demon of Wrath from an ancient Middle Eastern religion. How can Aeshma fit into a land where the official religion -- Buddhism -- does not recognize sin as damning a soul to eternal torment? Cressie claims she visits the most notorious sex tourism city in the world to worship in its many Buddist temples. But why then did she drag Dan to a massage parlor? Why have her new friend, the beautiful young Prani, stay with them in their hotel room for the rest of their visit? How well does the Thai buddha amulet Prani wears around her neck get along with Aeshma? What do Thai wives allegedly do to cheating husbands that so amuses Cressie and Dan? In this horror short story religions, sexual needs, cross-cultural ignorance, and poor self-images collide to end in tragedy. Therefore, scroll up and download The Sin You Take now.

Etwa drei Monate lang lebte Roger Willemsen in Bangkok, verließ sein Zimmer allabendlich um 18 Uhr und kehrte im Morgengrauen zurück. In den Nächten durchstreifte er mit dem in Bangkok lebenden Fotografen Ralf Tooten die Stadt: die Nachtclubs, Karaoke-Bars und Massage-Salons, die Kickbox-Studios, Nachtmärkte, Tempel und Baustellen. Er besuchte Wahrsager, Tätowierer und Aura-Fotografen, den Amulett-Markt, den Jahrmarkt der Gastarbeiter, das Straßenkino. Er aß bei den Insektenverkäufern, fand die geheimen Schlafplätze der Arbeitselefanten und campierte unter den Demonstranten. Er fand Zugang zu Nobel-Clubs, aber ebenso zu den Glücksspielern aus den Armen-Wohnblocks.

Hezbollah: The Global Footprint of Lebanon's Party of God is the first thorough examination of Hezbollah’s covert activities beyond Lebanon’s borders, including its financial and logistical support networks and its criminal and terrorist operations worldwide. Hezbollah—Lebanon’s "Party of God"—is a multifaceted organization: It is a powerful political party in Lebanon, a Shia Islam religious and social movement, Lebanon’s largest militia, a close ally of Iran, and a terrorist organization. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including recently declassified government documents, court records, and personal interviews with intelligence and law enforcement officials around the world, Matthew Levitt examines Hezbollah’s beginnings, its first violent forays in Lebanon, and then its terrorist activities and criminal enterprises abroad in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Southeast Asia, Africa, and finally in North America. Levitt also describes Hezbollah’s unit dedicated to supporting Palestinian militant groups and Hezbollah’s involvement in training and supporting insurgents who fought US troops in post-Saddam Iraq. The paperback edition includes a new afterword by the author that updates the book for Hezbollah's role in the civil war in Syria, their ongoing shadow war with Israel, and for the trials of Hezbollah operatives accused of terrorist plots.
