Radical Islamism and Jihad

According To ISIL, We Are All Infidels
Ahmet Hakan

For them, leftists are not Muslims, neither are right wing supporters. The conservatives are not Muslim, so are the secular ones... The Alevis are no good, neither are the Sunnis ... The Turks are a target, so are the Kurds. Mehmet Görmez, the head of the Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet), is an apostate, and, for instance, I am as well. Since ISIL is not differentiating between us, then why should we divide and fragmentize ourselves against ISIL?....

We Have Daesh and We Have Israel
Tariq A. Al-Maeena

Today, we cannot forgive ourselves for keeping quiet. And we cannot be selective. Who can forget the tragic image of a father shielding his eight-year-old son, as Israeli forces callously shot him dead while the cameras were running? Or the image of Rachel Corrie, an American from Seattle who defiantly stood in the face of Israeli bulldozers, only to be violently crushed to death by the Caterpillar’s blades?...

 

The Reina Atrocity Shows How Deeply Islamic Fanaticism Has Taken Hold In Turkey
Elif Shafak

As a nation we now spend more time talking about death than about the joys of life. “Will it be after a football match? Or maybe when I am returning home from work? When will I become a number?” wrote one person on Twitter, reflecting the sentiments of millions of citizens. “Don’t be sad that you couldn’t win the lottery,” said another on social media. “If you are alive, it means you’ve won the biggest lottery in Turkey.”....

 

Nightclub Massacre in Istanbul Exposes Turkey’s Deepening Fault Lines
Tim Arango

It was there, at the Reina nightclub on the Bosporus — a hot spot for soap opera stars and professional athletes, Turks and well-heeled tourists — that those hoping to move past a particularly troubled year died together....

How the Jihadist Movements Thrived Ideologically Despite Their Militarily Defeat: Examples from Arab History
Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

From 1745 to 1818, the Wahhabi movement waged the global jihad going berserk more than even the Kharijites in their atrocities, as the 18th century Arab scholar Shaykh Zaini Dahlan Makki, writes in his Arabic book “Al-Balad Al-Haram” (the sacred city). The aggression of the Wahhabi jihadists spread rapidly throughout the Muslim world, causing great distress among the common people. Given this, the governor of Egypt, Muhammad Ali Pasha sent his army to Saudi Arabia on the behest of the Ottoman Caliphate. After a long battle, the Egyptian forces defeated the Najdis and completely destroyed the capital of the first Saudi dynasty, Diriyah where the Wahhabi movement spearheaded. Thus, the Wahhabi jihadsim was militarily defeated to an extent, but it remained active on an ideological level to this day and age…..

How Blood Feud Is Growing Among The Syrian Youth
Batoul Karbijha

"We will take revenge from everyone who kept silent and everyone who applauded the death of all innocent immaculate souls in Aleppo," Hosam Al-Bakri, a teary-eyed youth refugee told me, referring to the recent recapture of Aleppo, considered as a fateful victory for the Syrian regime over the armed opposition. "Assad is worse than ISIL, believe me," he continued. This judgement may raise a few eyebrows, but it shouldn't, as this is an inevitable sentiment of young people watching their fellow countrymen killed in cold blood and evacuated from their homes....

 

Pakistan Lukewarm Efforts to Take Up the Counter-Extremism Fight Are Compounding the Madrasa Challenge
Muhammad Amir Rana

When state institutions fail to understand the nature of a challenge, they tend to propose old, traditional solutions. The same is happening in the case of madressahs. Introduce English language, mathematics and computers in madressah curriculums and that will transform the institutions. This is what the interior and religious affairs ministries recently proposed....

 

Bangladesh: Unrelenting Response
S. Binodkumar Singh

The Awami League (AL)-led Government, which came to power on January 6, 2009, has consolidated its secular commitments through 2016, reining in Islamist extremist groups and targeting the Left Wing Extremist (LWE) movement in the country. According to partial data collected by the South Asia Terrorism Portal (SATP), 74 Islamist terrorists were killed and another 1,227 arrested across Bangladesh in different raids in 2016....

 

The history of Tunisia – is a tragedy of secularism being induced from the top, and the poisonous Islamism, sprouting from the bottom. Religious education in Tunisia is compulsory, but there’s little depth to it. In the absence of true understanding of Islam, young people are quickly being tricked by Islamists in following their evil ways. Most Tunisians don’t know any other thing about Islam, other than washing their hands before praying….

 

A More Dangerous Long-Term Threat: Al-Qaida Grows As ISIS Retreats
Jason Burke

Western officials fear JFS will not only dominate the jihadi landscape in the Levant following the defeat of Isis, but may also provide a springboard for al-Qaida to launch strikes into Europe, should the group change its current strategy....

 

Religious Extremism and Terrorism in Pakistan
Saqib Warraich

Pakistan is also a hot bed of Islamic militancy with various militant organizations being fully operative and often resorting to violence in the name of Islam. Such organizations took root when Pakistan, during the Soviet War, started to support anti-modern, extremist and intolerant forces eventually losing control of them and having them erode law and order situation in addition to damaging the social fabric of the society….

 

Weakened Militarily, ISIS Still Has Power to Sow Deadly Mayhem

The Islamic State was also endowed with an unusual mix of military expertise — many of its core members were former Iraqi officers with plenty of battlefield experience — and religious erudition. Arriving when the Arab world seemed to be collapsing, it deftly marshalled the skills of a cadre of young, intelligent Islamic fundamentalists such as the Bahraini religious scholar Turki al Binali, who helped recruit many frustrated young people eager for a radical new source of hope....

 

How to Defeat Terrorists? True Extremism
Giles Fraser

“We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.” Which is why I want religious people to be more extreme in their faith, not less; to put aside their own boiling inadequacy and to trust in God’s greatness and that he knows what he is doing. Moses and Jesus and Muhammad were all extremists. They trusted in God over their instincts. And the shorthand for this is Allahu Akbar – a phrase the terrorists will never understand.....

 

From The Rubble of Aleppo, ISIL Rises
Alia Brahimi

Aleppo is no defeat for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. ISIL is the most formidable and global of all the terrorist players, which has attracted tens of thousands of fighters from more than 50 countries, manufactured chemical weapons, minted its own currency, and run a substantial proto-state....

 

Does Islamic State Have a Future in the AfPak Region?
Daud Khattak

The Islamic State’s Afghan and Pakistani affiliates follow the strict Salafi creed, which sees the Deobandi scholars and their followers as superstitious. The majority of the Pakistani Taliban leadership came under Salafist influence due to their long-time association and close contacts with al-Qaeda jihadists in the tribal areas....

 

Berlin Attack is a Test of German Patience
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

The detailed contours of the attack will emerge slowly but surely. After all the German police and the media have shown restraint in the past and are showing it now by not jumping the gun by naming this Islamic organization or another. They are not even unequivocally saying that this is an Islamic terrorist attack. Contrast this with the Indian media: within minutes they seem to know the name of the terrorists, the organization which they belong to, and even their other plans. But this is beside the point; the contrast only being made to show that despite such atrocities the German press and the police have maintained their neutrality and are still not openly hostile towards the Muslims.....

 

Truck Attack May Be Part of ISIS Strategy to Sharpen Divide between Muslims and Others
Joby Warrick

Islamic State officials have explicitly sought to link such attacks to the larger goal of making Europe intolerable for faithful Muslims. A 2015 article in the group’s English-language magazine, Dabiq, warned that the terrorists would soon begin targeting the West with the aim of deliberately provoking a backlash against Muslims living there....

 

The Berlin Attack Is Right Out Of the Terror Handbooks
Robin Wright

Last month, Rumiyah, the slickest terrorist magazine on the Internet market, was very precise. The “most appropriate” killing vehicle, the Islamic State publication advised, is a “load-bearing truck” that is “double-wheeled, giving victims less of a chance to escape being crushed by the vehicle’s tires.” It should be “heavy in weight, assuring the destruction of whatever it hits.” It should also have a “slightly raised chassis and bumper, which allow for the mounting of sidewalks and breeching of barriers if needed.” And it should have a “reasonably fast” rate of acceleration.....

In some ways, class at an Islamic State school doesn't seem all that unusual: an instructor stands at the head of the classroom teaching children to read and write. But when it's time for physical education, instead of running track or playing dodgeball, the kids learn to handle assault rifles and kill anyone who opposes the Islamic State...

 

I Fear For My Sons: ISIS-Style Group Forces Brutal Lessons on Syrian Children
Abo Bakr al Haj Ali

Most of the region's schools have been converted into Islamic institutions, where teachers and some students are forced to wear IS-type uniforms: short trousers, long tunics and headscarves for males; and layers of black full-length DRESSES and scarves for females. Many teachers have been fired and replaced with teachers belonging to IS, several of whom came direct from Raqqa....

 

ISIS in the Caribbean
Simon Cottee

The Islamic scene on the island is divided: There is the Indo Islam of the East Indians, who first came to Trinidad in the mid-19th century as indentured slaves, and there is the Islam of the Jamaat al Muslimeen, whose members, many of whom were formerly Christians, are almost exclusively black. These two groups do not tend to mix, still less intermarry. But both, in their different ways, are far from the Salafi Islam that the Trinidadian criminologist Daurius Figueira believes has infiltrated T&T..

 

Throughout the history of Islam, there have been two shades of ideological terrorism: one is geographical and another is intellectual. The geographical terrorism started in the region of Najd [the central geographical stretch of Saudi Arabia], whereas the ideology of the Khārijites [sceders from Islam, the earliest Islamic sect which tried to turn Islam into a religio-political caliphate system] represents intellectual terrorism. ..

Majority of Arab Youth Rejects Radicalism
Jad Chaaban

Unemployment among youths is the highest in the world at more than 30 percent; young women's labour force participation is at an all-time low; and with an increasing education most university graduates migrate when they can to find better opportunities abroad....

 

Religious Ideology Cause of Islamic Terrorism
Tawfik Hamid

Abdul Razak should have blamed his fellow Islamic radicals and leading Islamic scholars — who actually teach and promote these hateful and inhumane Sharia laws — for creating and reinforcing such a negative image of Islam. It is also notable that Islamic scholars who are considered to be moderate have never taken a clear and honest stand against such inhumane Sharia laws as declaring wars to spread Islam and taking female war prisoners as sex slaves (Ma Malakat Aymanukum)….

Radical Islam Is a Serious Threat to Humanity
Ammar Anwer

When the likes of ISIS behead innocent people and attack Paris or Brussels, they do so because they believe that it is their religious obligation. When Islamist terrorists, anywhere in the world, mistreat and enslave women, and persecute homosexuals it is because they interpret Islam such that it legalises slavery and homophobia. It is their view of Islam, which to them appears to be the only correct one....
