Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

Rise of the European jihadi
Praveen Swami

In his book, jihadist ideologue Nasar wrote that “terrorism is like talent for poetry, music, painting and different aspects of the arts. The trainers and those supervising the foundation of Resistance cells must discover those talents and refine them with culture and training so that they find their place in leading terrorist operations in this type of blessed jihad”.

 
Taste of terror from inside
Jayprakash S. Naidu

The anti-terror experts from India like V. Balachandhran and D. Sivanandhan in Maharashtra had anticipated this possibility of 'self-indoctrination' years back and even spoke about it in seminars on anti-terror measures. Former ATS chief Rakesh Maria had even begun a de-radicalisation program and had some success. But, an absence of these efforts in other cities like Thane seems to have done the trick for the indoctrinators.

That One Long, Horrible Night of Ramzan 2014
Vikram Sood

It was in the month of Ramzan 2014 that there was an announcement about the establishment of the Caliphate. The new Islamic State of Iraq and Syira followed this by uploading a video from the Chilean jihadi, Abu Safiyya, captioned “The End of Sykes-Picot”. The sleek video wanted to project a contemporary, cosmopolitan picture of Islam with a global reach. …

Fatwa Response to ISIS
Abdallah bin Bayyah

No Muslim is to be excommunicated unless he or she says or does something that is absolutely unambiguous and not open to alternative interpretations. The Prophet, God’s peace and blessings upon him, declared that simply cursing a Muslim is deviance and killing him is disbelief.

 

Wanted To Join Islamic State, Return To Wage War Against India: Hyderabad Engineer Salman Mohiuddin

In a note to the wife, Ahad had detailed every aspect of the family’s expense, how to save money, important numbers and reliable people, how to get the daughter married, and who to turn to for further financial assistance.

The most important part of his note, which raised doubts about Ahad’s intentions, was the instruction to his wife: “Never contact any police and other law enforcement to try to locate me; never contact any Attorney/Lawyer to release me from jail if I am there, or do anything on this matter, only if I instruct to do something over phone, then do it, don’t do anything on your own.”

Stop Asking All Muslims to Condemn Terror
Davide Mastracci

As such, laying collective blame on white people would be wrong, but in reality, it would be relatively harmless. The same is not true for Muslims. The collective blame laid upon Muslims legitimizes the idea that all Muslims should be punished for the acts of a tiny minority of Muslims. Once this idea is legitimized, spates of hate crimes are committed and some Muslims end up feeling unsafe in their own communities. This is not an unwarranted fear, as hate crimes against Muslims are on the rise, according to Statistics Canada.....

Islamic State Can Find No Ground in India
Ajai Sahni

From an Indian perspective, it is useful to note that a minuscule number of individuals from this country have been sufficiently inspired by these diverse antics to join, or attempt to join, Daesh, and most of these were in the first few months after the fall of Mosul. Such things now appear to be on their way out, though the occasional Daesh flag, poster or scrawl on the wall can be found in fairly dispersed locations across India. ...

Cabs, Camels or ISIS
Thomas L. Friedman

The message? The context within which Arabs and Muslims live their lives really matters. And in too many places they’ve had only two choices — SISI or ISIS — the iron fist of generals, like Egypt’s President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, who is trying to stifle all dissent, or the ISIS madness that says the only way forward is to take the Arab-Muslim world backward.

The completion of a terrorist act does not depend on the perpetrator, it depends on the victim. The success of 9/11 was not the collapse of the Twin Towers, but the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. And surprisingly, Iraq then became the birthplace of the Isis. If we want to fight terrorism efficiently we need to put aside our emotions. We need to look at its socio-cultural backgrounds and at history. We need to recall that the Isis is a product of wrong Western policies, starting with the invasion of Iraq....

 

But ISIS’ reach is bounded; there are no more areas in which it can extend by claiming to be a defender of Sunni Arab populations. To the north, there are Kurds; to the east, Iraqi Shiites; to the west, Alawites, now protected by the Russians. And all are resisting it. To the south, neither the Lebanese, who worry about the influx of Syrian refugees, nor the Jordanians, who are still reeling from the horrid execution of one of their pilots, nor the Palestinians have succumbed to any fascination for ISIS. Stalled in the Middle East, ISIS is rushing headlong into globalized terrorism.....

 

Fearing Fear Itself: Call It Terrorism, and Do Not Dignify It with the Name of War
Paul Krugman

So what was Friday’s attack about? Killing random people in restaurants and at concerts is a strategy that reflects its perpetrators’ fundamental weakness. It isn’t going to establish a caliphate in Paris. What it can do, however, is inspire fear — which is why we call it terrorism, and shouldn’t dignify it with the name of war.....

“There is a radical change of perception by the terrorists that they can now act in Paris just as they act in Syria or Baghdad,” said Mathieu Guidère, a terrorism specialist at the University of Toulouse. “With this action, a psychological barrier has been broken.” Indeed, at a time when many Western officials were most concerned about Islamic State-inspired, lone-wolf attacks — terrifying in their randomness but relatively low in casualties — the attacks in Paris have revived the spectre of coordinated, high-casualty attacks planned with the involvement of a relatively large number of perpetrators......

 
War on Terror Begins Anew
Bogdan Aurescu and Jose Garcia-Margallo y Marfil

Like the black plague in medieval Europe, terrorism is stalking the modern world, and eradicating it has become a global imperative. The international community has long been concerned about the threat posed by terrorism. Countries have enacted security legislation and created special intelligence and police units to stop perpetrators and discourage or prevent attacks, and have complemented these efforts by entering into international and regional treaties and bilateral agreements.....

 

Paris Terror Attack: The Cause Lies In the Middle East
Syed Ata Hasnain

This attack in Paris must not be viewed as a French problem. It is a problem for Europe and for rest of the world. The faster the world gets its act together against the Daesh in the Middle East faster it will resolve. After Russia’s high-profile entry, the situation for Daesh appears to be business as usual. The inability of the US and Russia to see the emerging threats in joint focus and their sticking to positions on various issues is going to prevent this. ...

History as Ethical Remembrance: Dhaka University, Shaheed Minar and CP Gang’s ‘Bessha’ Banner – IV
Rahnuma Ahmed

And why is it important that we analyse metaphors, and their purposes? To raise “awareness” about choices which “reflect and reinforce social beliefs — especially when these enforce exploitative social relationships?” And that, precisely, is my argument: Besshas and Birangonas are socially vulnerable. They are ideologically marginal. They are silenced by dominant voices, the silencing works through rendering the woman who is accused of being a Bessha mute. It is a slur which is un-contestable within patriarchal discourses (even Sita, despite having passed the ring of fire, failed) and this is precisely why, I contend, it was chosen by the CP Gang.....

 
Could Paris Happen in America?
Steven Simon and Daniel Benjamin

If anything, what the Paris attacks show is that the world needs America’s intelligence and security resources even more than its military might. The American intelligence community is the indispensable hub of global counterterrorism efforts, but the large numbers and geographic spread of the Islamic State mean that the United States must commit even more resources. Europe must step up and help build the basis for a deeper, more far-reaching collaboration.....

But not all subscribe to the idea of SlutWalk, it encountered strong criticism from Black women. In An Open Letter from Black Women to the SlutWalk, more than a hundred black anti-violence activists, academics and community leaders while commending the organisers for their bold initiative and large scale mobilisation, expressed concern. As Black women and girls, they said, they find “no space” in participating in SlutWalk, no space for denouncing rape and sexual assaults which have been, and still are, experienced by Black women....

His outspokenness on TV talk shows earned him a steady barrage of verbal attacks, presumably, also the crude bomb attack on his residence in November 2013 (Piash and Amena were unhurt, they had not been at home, the security guard received a bullet in his leg); these incidents, some surmise, helped draw him closer to the BNP. Piash was a public figure, he had a following among the BNP and its coalition partner, the Jamaat-e-Islami (many of whose top leadership are accused of/have committed war crimes), and among TV audiences generally dissatisfied with the Awami League government’s misrule.....
