Radical Islamism and Jihad

Combat Terrorism: Safeguard Nation-State Sovereignty
Kazi Wadud Nawaz, New Age Islam

Like most- vaunted Imperialist tools of ‘Democracy and Human Rights’ terrorism   adds another   powerful weapon of world domination in the arsenal of the Corporate Masters. They   already used these weapons in Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. And now they are going after Syria and Iraq for Balkanizing the Middle-East. Terrorist Organizations like Al-Qaeda, IS, Al-Nusra,  Boko Haram  etc. are their foster-children to be brought up as an instrument of disruption of the national unity and subverting  Nation State Sovereignty for creating  a favourable  environment for external intervention and  regime change....

 

Al-Qaeda: The Other Jihadist State

Its future emirate, should it come to it, may be more firmly supported by the local population, and therefore even harder to extirpate, than the barbarous IS caliphate....

 

Tackle Alienation of Muslim Youth to Deal with Daesh
Michael Jansen

There is a large pool of alienated angry young Muslims eager to join the fight against the Christian West which has colonised them, dominated the governments in their home countries which have failed to provide productive lives for them and discriminated against them. The only way to deal with Daesh is to tackle the roots of the alienation of Muslim youth....

 

Wahhabi doctrine holds that preservation of cultural heritage, whether Islamic or non-Islamic, is a form of idol worship or polytheism prohibited in Islam. The Saudi kingdom now faces the need to choose between its continued patronage of the Wahhabi clerics and the danger they pose, inside the Saudi state and abroad, to Muslims, non-Muslims, and global culture, in the form of death and mutilation, cultural desolation....

 

Behind Boko Haram's Split: A Leader Too Radical for Islamic State
Yaroslav Trofimov

“Shekau’s approval of attacking Muslims indiscriminately led to a situation of significant loss of support within the Muslim community. The fact that he could kill Muslims praying in a mosque convinced the locals that he is not really fighting for Islam,”...

 

Organise events that galvanise youngsters from across different faiths and backgrounds. Encourage interfaith dialogue as the weapon of choice to counter the destructive narrative ISIS promotes for recruitment. Using social media, advertising and faith groups across the country can be a simple but very effective measure to help tie the noose around ISIS and its rabble-rousers who spout their rubbish....

"We welcome the development and we pray they would continue fighting and fragmenting. However, what I want to tell you is that none of them is better; we are looking for all of them. "The only ones that we would spare are those who repent, and they were the ones that would be taken as prisoners of war by the Nigerian Army.”...

 

Win Hearts and Minds to Prevail Against Terror
Fareed Zakaria

The challenge in defeating Daesh is not really about vanquishing it on the battlefield. America has won battles like that for 15 years in Afghanistan and Iraq only to discover that once US forces leave, the Taleban or Daesh or some other radical group returns. The way to have these groups stay defeated is to help countries find some form of politics that addresses the basic aspirations of their people- all their people...

Terrorism is a multidimensional phenomenon, and until today the existence and latent threat of Islamist terrorism confronts global society with formidable challenges. As a global phenomenon, it is indeed easy to recognize the manifestation of terrorism, but it is rather difficult to clearly define it.....

 

Once a Qaeda Recruiter, Now a Voice against Jihad
Rukmini Callimachi

Although countries like Britain have for years been putting former extremists to work in think tanks to provide authentic voices against radical ideology, Mr. Morton is the first former jihadist to step into this public a role in the United States....

 

Daish (ISIS) is such an organization which has come into existence to weaken the Islamic forces, spread confusion and chaos in the lines of the Muslims, tarnishes the image of Islam in the eyes of the world and distracts the world from the humanity-loving divine ideology. This is surely a threat to humankind and leads to the decline of the Muslim Ummah.

Therefore, such organizations are terrorists and condemnable and to support and co-operate (with) them is not allowed by Shariah. It is the religious and moral duty of the conscious persons of the Muslim Ummah that they should inform the world of its threats and strive to prevent the Muslim youth, if any, from supporting Daish and those of its ilk, in any form.-----

How the Islamic State Recruits and Coerces Children
Mia Bloom

The school curriculum is little more than indoctrination, but it brings children closer to each other to create a band-of-brothers effect, and brings the children to the attention of IS personnel who talent-scout for children exhibiting early potential for “Cub” status in IS’ dedicated training camps. Through a socialization and selection process, IS implies that entry into the Cubs of the Caliphate is a rare commodity and something desirable for each child. ...

 

Does ‘Islamic State’ Leader Al-Baghdadi Exist?
S. Mubashir Noor, New Age Islam

Though IS’s media wing al-Furqan has made public three audio recordings attributed to al-Baghdadi since May last year, they all sound like Mullah Mohammad Omar speaking from beyond the grave. I refer; of course, to last July when, amid landmark talks in Islamabad between the Taliban and Kabul, the Afghan spy agency NDS leaked news that Mullah Omar, despite his very recent pronouncements through the group’s media cell, had been dead for years. It turned out his (now deceased) deputy Mullah Akhtar Mansour was impersonating him to prevent the movement from splintering. Is al-Baghdadi now too a sock puppet for some new IS lynchpin?...

The Heretic: The Fascinating Story of How Al-Qaeda's Mastermind Dr Fadl Turned His Back on Terror - Part Two
Lawrence Wright

'People hate America, and the Islamist movements feel their hatred and their impotence. Ramming America has become the shortest road to fame and leadership among the Arabs and Muslims. But what good is it if you destroy one of your enemy's buildings, and he destroys one of your countries? What good is it if you kill one of his people, and he kills 1,000 of yours? That, in short, is my evaluation of 9/11.'...

 

Child’s Play: A Syrian Story
Omar Daqneesh

With a nation of children scarred by death and destruction, what hope can there be for a productive and prosperous Syrian nation? The children who could leave, have left, and the children who can’t leave are uneducated and resentful. However the future plays out, Omran Daqneesh was not the first and he certainly will not be the last....

 

Has Kerala, God’s Own Country, Become A Hub for Terror-Related Activities?
Viju Cherian

“What is very disturbing is that many well-off people are part of these silent modules and many times they themselves are not aware of it....Also, it is no longer limited to north Kerala, reports of such activities come in from all places in the state,”...

 

The rise of Islamic State poses a great threat to South Asia, but also provides the region with a rare opportunity. A collective threat by a non-State actor to the entire region may mean the countries will rise to meet the threat collectively....

 

Militant Islam and the Missing Boys of Bangladesh
Subir Bhaumik

“Bangladesh’s moderate Islam and its secular polity is a threat to these global Jihadis because it is a model that strikes at the heart of their Wahhabi-Salafist vision of radical Islam,”...

 

Boko Haram Breaks Up: Militants Divide Over the Murder of Muslims

But the murder of Muslims has always been a point of debate. Under the maniacal Abubakar Shekau, who last year declared allegiance to Islamic State (IS) and once professed to “enjoy killing anyone that God commands me to kill”, the group blew up mosques as well as churches—often using children to detonate suicide bombs. But with new leadership, tactics can change...

 

The Roots of Terrorism in Pakistan
I.A. Rehman

But it is time the state realised the impossibility of fighting terrorism without having the upper hand in the discourse on Islam, the legitimate ways of enforcing its injunctions in the private life of the faithful, and accepting the vital need to stop mixing politics with belief....

Islamist Violence is not Acceptable on Any Excuse
Dr. Mohammad Ghitreef, New Age Islam

Islamist Violence is not Acceptable on Any Excuse
Dr. Mohammad Ghitreef, New Age Islam

Another pertinent question that stirs the mind: did the prophet of Islam (PBUH), who is the sole eternal role model for the Ummah, implement the Shariah with any coercive method? Or his true successors the Rashidun Khulafa (right guided vicegerents of the prophet) had done it? Or the great four Imams of historical Islam advocated it? I want a clear-cut answer to these relevant and grim questions to be given from the religious leaders who sympathise with the criminals, who are giving only lip service to Islam and thus tarnishing its image.....

Pakistan: Justice in Terror
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

Pakistan: Justice in Terror
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

Indeed, irrespective of their sectarian background, it appears that lawyers are being singled out across Pakistan. According to partial data compiled by the South Asia Terrorism Portal (SATP), at least 114 lawyers have been killed, and another 210 have been injured, in 28 incidents of attack on lawyers since 2007. Significantly, the current year has so far recorded the highest number of attacks on lawyers over the last decade, with eight such resulting in 114 fatalities and more than 50 injured....

 

Some of these were anti-India and Kashmir-centric, while others were virulently sectarian, taking aim at Pakistan’s sizeable Shia Muslim minority. The vast majority of the groups adhered to the Salafi/Wahhabi or Deobandi creeds.....

How to Win the War against ISIL
Remi Piet

Local imams refused to prepare the body of the terrorist for burial, stating this would "taint Islam", while the French Islamic authorities encouraged devout Muslims to go and pray in churches the following Sunday. The Pope himself refused to address the topic of religious violence, stressing that neither Islam nor any other religion advocates such acts. The permanence of those mature reactions is essential because the war against ISIL will not be won with bombs in Syria or by the intelligence services....

 

Who Drives Political Violence in Pakistan?
James M Dorsey

Hundreds of guests, including Pakistani ministers and religious leaders designated as terrorists by the United States attended the event at the expense of the Saudi embassy in the Pakistani capital.... The result is a country whose social fabric and tradition of tolerance is being fundamentally altered in ways that could take a generation to reverse....
