Dr. Tawfik Hamid is an Islamic thinker and reformer and a one-time Islamic extremist from Egypt. He was a member of a radical Islamic organization in Egypt with Dr. Ayman Al-Zawaherri (who later became the first in command of Al-Qaeda). More than 30 years ago he started a reformation within Islam. He appeared on shows spanning the spectrum from CNN to Fox News and his op-ed pieces have appeared in The Wall Street Journal and many other reputable publications. Dr. Hamid testified before the US Congress and the European Parliament and lectured at The DNI, The Pentagon, the FBI and others where he offered a strategic plan to defeat radical Islam. He has authored several books on this topic.
