Rebuke the Wind Reviews: Is Trip Mackintosh’s Program Legit?

December 23, 2020 GMT

Homewood, IL - ( NewMediaWire ) - December 23, 2020 - Rebuke the Wind is a digital book written by Trip Mackintosh, a lawyer specializing in US laws on arms trafficking, anti-terrorism controls, sanctions, corruption, and money laundering. His career began as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco and frequently was involved in Africa’s matters, including the Sahel. Rebuke the Wind describes the journey of a teenager that found herself kidnapped by Boko Haram, which means “Western education is forbidden.” The US State Department labeled Boko Haram a Foreign Terrorist Organization in late 2013. The novel is a tribute to the individuals that have been in the same circumstances; a portion of the profits from sales goes to Cameroon charities.

What is Rebuke the Wind?

The western world has consistently upheld a sheltered perspective of what goes on around the world today. Most news reports center solely around the United States and their interactions with the world, but there’s a whole narrative beyond that. The stories of victimized women deserve to be heard, and bringing forth this knowledge for the rest of the world is precisely what Rebuke the Wind aims to do.

Rebuke the Wind takes the reader on a journey through Boko Haram’s dangers through Isa’s eyes, a 14-year old girl kidnapped by the Islamist group. This lethal group has taken over quite a significant portion of Africa for over two decades, and the book leaves no stone unturned as it creates a personable perspective. Rather than going this story as no more than a distant headline, Isa’s story makes this issue more real for people who haven’t experienced it.

Meant to be a tribute to the Sahel women, the reader will learn about Isa’s victory as she both escapes from the organization and frees a Frenchmen who was held as well. The story hooks the reader with a clear and brilliant articulation of courage and faith against nearly impossible outcomes. To add to the story’s experience, there are also mentions of the security teams in India, the US, and the UK. Readers will see a “soulless” depiction of the soldiers – some as children – involved with Boko Haram, as well as the individuals who funded and laundered money for these efforts.

Boko Haram has reigned in several African regions since the 1990s, despite the massive death tolls in July 2009 due to conflict with the Nigerian Government. The following year, Abubakar Shekau (who was previously the second in command of Boko Haram) blamed Western influences for their disputes, saying that there would be attacks. He has positioned the group alongside al-Qaeda and has continued to used explosives as a means to cause broad destruction. The organization has been considered a Foreign Terrorist Organization since November 2013 and for the terrorist groups kidnapping of 276 school-age girls in the spring of 2014.
