Jihadist ideology inspires a diverse and decentralized collection of radical groups to fight alleged enemies of Islam and to attempt to “restore” a holy caliphate to unite Muslim peoples across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Islamic Radicalism and Global Jihad provides unique insights into the philosophical foundations, strategic vision, organizational dynamics, and tactics of the modern jihadist movement—with specific attention to its primary driver, Al-Qa’ida. Springer, Regens, and Edger draw heavily on Arabic language sources seldom seen in the West to explain what jihadists want and how radical thinkers have distorted the teachings of Islam to convince followers to pursue terrorism as a religious duty. With sophisticated and systematic analysis, the authors lead their readers on a fascinating intellectual journey through the differing ideas, goals, and vulnerabilities of the jihadist movement as it has evolved over time. The authors also impart wisdom from their own professional experience with terrorism, counterinsurgency, and intelligence to provide scholars, students, counterterrorism professionals, and general readers with this accessible overview of key radical Islamic thinkers and today’s jihadists.

This timely 2 volume edited collection looks at the extent and nature of global jihad, focusing on the often-exoticised hinterlands of jihad beyond the traditionally viewed Middle Eastern 'centre'. As ISIS loses its footing in Syria and Iraq and al-Qaeda regroups, this comprehensive account will be a key work in the on-going battle to better understand the dynamics of jihad's global reality. The two volumes critically examine the various claims of connections between jihadist terrorism in the 'periphery', remote Islamist insurgencies of the 'periphery' and the global jihad. Each volume draws on experts in each of the geographies in question.

The first of two interrelated security threats is multifaceted inasmuch as it stems from a complex combination of religious, political, historical, cultural, social, and economic motivational factors caused by the growing predilection for carrying out mass casualty terrorist attacks inside the territories of ¿infidel¿ Western countries by clandestine operational cells that are inspired by, and sometimes linked to, various jihadist networks with a global agenda. The second threat is more narrowly technical: the widespread fabrication of increasingly sophisticated and destructive improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by those very same jihadist groups. These devices, if properly constructed, are capable of causing extensive human casualties and significant amounts of physical destruction within their respective blast radiuses. These dual intersecting threats within the recent European context are examined in an effort to assess what they might portend for the future, including within the U.S. homeland.

Since the events of September 11, 2001 in the United States, Western Muslim communities have been placed under a social and political microscope. Omar Bakri Muhammad and his organization al-Muhajiroun, based in London from the mid-1990s until 2004, endorsed militant jihad and generated a very public profile as the voice of 'Islamism' in the United Kingdom. Al-Muhajiroun's tenure in the United Kingdom spanned a crucial decade in international relations and the organization acted as a lightening rod for the debates surrounding Islamism in the West. Drawing on interviews with Bakri, British Muslims and the Call to Global Jihad explores the ways in which al-Muhajiroun attempted, and ultimately failed, to 'walk the line' between Islamism and life in a Western state.

Hanshaw explores the often competing demands that confront American Muslims from Islamic religious law and secular law. The conflict extends into many aspects of daily life, ranging from issues concerning divorce and child custody to the interpretation of contracts. The receptivity of U.S. courts to claims rooted in Islamic legal principles has been uneven, leaving Muslims in a state of uncertainty. As well, U.S. courts have often struggled to interpret Islamic law provisions. At the heart of Hanshaw's legal analysis lies the very personal question of whether weaknesses in U.S. judicial proces ...

This unique book represents one of the first systematic attempts to explain why thousands of Westerners heed international calls to 'jihad' and join radical Islamic groups. Drawing on his unprecedented access to a radical Islamic group, Quintan Wiktorowicz details the subtle process that can turn seemingly unreligious people into supporters of religious violence. The author's extraordinary fieldwork forms the basis of a detailed case study of al-Muhajiroun, a transnational movement based in London that supports Bin Laden and other Islamic terrorists. Through its rich empirical detail, the case study explains the larger question of why ordinary people join extremist movements.

What is the significance of Islam's growing strength in Ethiopia? And what is the impetus for the Saudi financing of hundreds of new mosques and schools in the country, the establishment of welfare organizations, and the spread of the Arabic language? Haggai Erlich explores the interplay of religion and international politics as it has shaped the development of modern Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia. Tracing Saudi-Ethiopian relations from the 1930s to the present, Erlich highlights the nexus of concrete politics and the conceptual messages of religion. His fresh approach encompasses discussions of the options and dilemmas facing Ethiopians, both Christians and Muslims, across multiple decades; the Saudis' nuanced conceptualization of their Islamic self in contrast to Christian and Islamic others; and the present confrontation between Ethiopia's apolitical Islam and Wahhabi fundamentalism. It also provides new perspectives on both the current dilemmas of the Wahhabi kingdom and the global implications of the evolving Saudi-Ethiopian relationship.

Authors John Ankerberg and John Weldon know just the questions readers are asking about Islam, and they provide brief, incisive answers. Using their unique Q-and-A style, Ankerberg and Weldon reveal who Muhammad was and how Islam got started, what Muslims believe about God, the relationship between Christianity and Islam, where the Qur'an came from, and how Islamic beliefs are related to recent acts of terrorism. Included are discussions of such questions as: In what sense is Islam a religion of peace? Does the Qur'an support the doctrine of jihad--"holy war"? How do Muslims view the U.S. and Israel? What basic problem does the Qur'an present for Muslims? Do Muslims believe in Jesus Christ? How should Christians share the gospel with Muslims? More than just a listing of well-researched facts on Islam and Muslim beliefs, Fast Facts on Islam will provide readers with insight into present events, and will help them comprehend of one of the world's great religious and political powers--in light of the far greater power that lies within them, the power of God through Jesus Christ.
