Muslims Need To Say ‘Enough’ To Islamic Terrorism?
Dina Zaman

Muslims were asked what kind of Muslims they were, and whether they were with them, or not. As a friend ruminated on her Facebook wall, “…It's as if we have to make clear where our alliances are- what kind of Muslim are we- here, proof we are this kind – and if our views are different, we fragment ourselves further (using words like true or real to distinguish or differentiate ourselves further).”

How Modi can destroy Wahabi extremists like ISIS
Uday Mahurkar

How prepared is the Narendra Modi government should India face a Paris-like attack? It might be prepared to tackle the immediate challenge, but it is yet to come out with a long-term strategy to promote Sufism and tackle the challenge of ultra-Wahabism.

ISIS — A Growing Global Threat
Raulston Nembhard

The war against ISIS does not justify killing perhaps hundreds of thousands of civilians to root out a terror group like ISIS. President Barack Obama would be very naïve to think that bombing ISIS would degrade them and finally rid the world of them. But now that the rest of the world is waking up to the reality that this group presents a global threat and can strike at any time in any part of the world, there will be greater coordination from these countries to fight this growing threat.

 
The Joy of ISIS

The Joy of ISIS
Ross Douthat

Where the brighter joy of Mormons is invisible, in other words, the dark joy of ISIS will be entirely incomprehensible. That lack of comprehension isn’t Islamic radicalism’s only weapon. But it’s a useful one for the caliphate to have ready to its hand.

 

This has helped America satiate its thirst for oil and use Wahhabi doctrine for short term goals like defeating USSR in Afghanistan. In the 1970s, the US used the Saudi alliance to counter Egyptian pan-Arab socialist Gamal Abdel Nasser and post-revolution Iran. In the process it often patronised the nihilistic forces that have now turned their guns on the West.

 
Why the IS Survives
Frederic Grare

Why the IS Survives
Frederic Grare

The IS is not an existential threat for Western societies and the rhetoric of war can only be counterproductive, as it confers on IS a significance and an aura that, like in the case of al-Qaeda, is disproportionate with its actual importance. But this is precisely where the main risk lies. One may hope and believe that the IS will regress and disappear and that sanity will prevail, but when this will happen is an open question, and the societal cost of the journey may ultimately prove fairly high.

 

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

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.....
