Radical Islamism and Jihad

The Legacy of Lal Masjid

The video begins with Ghazi’s last message exhorting his followers to continue the struggle. The video then shows visuals of the Lal Masjid itself, along with the Jamia Hafsa and also visuals of troop deployment prior to the operation. Many of the Pakistanis who have joined Jihadi groups fighting in Iraq and Syria are believed to be former students of the madrasas affiliated with Lal Masjid....

 
9/11 doesn’t Justify Today’s Wars

9/11 doesn’t Justify Today’s Wars
Lucy Steigerwald

The Afghanistan War had an unfavourable rating of 78 percent in 2016. An American soldier killed there on July 3 was 19 years old—meaning he wasn’t old enough for kindergarten when the war began. We shouldn’t wait for another generation to deploy to a foreign desert before we begin asking when enough is enough....

 

How Africa Became A Hotbed For Terror
Zeynab Ladak

One of the reasons for the cause of terrorism in Africa may be due to poverty and marginalisation of minorities, as seen with Egyptian Bedouins, whereby a group of them joined ISIS after feeling marginalised by their government for decades. Research has found that minorities groups who feel marginalised and are discriminated against, tend to get attracted towards extremism and are more susceptible to radicalization. ....

 

As Indonesia Targets Islamist Hard-Liners, Even Rights Groups Object
Jon Emont

Still, experts cautioned that the ban may not be effective. Hizbut Tahrir functioned as an underground university-based organization during the Suharto dictatorship in the 1980s and 1990s, and may well try to return to those roots. “Of all the Islamic organizations in Indonesia, this is the one that’s most likely to be able to survive underground,” said Ken Ward, a former intelligence analyst with the Australian government who has studied the group, citing its secrecy....

 

ISIS, Battered but Still Potent, Returns to Its Insurgent Roots
Ben Hubbard

“O brothers, I call upon you to rise up wherever you are and to surround them and monitor them, then attack them and kill them,” a Chechen suicide bomber said in a video released posthumously last month. “The disbelievers have gathered today from every faith and attacked the caliphate, but this had only added to our faith and courage.” American officials acknowledged the difficulty of fighting the group online....

 

Ever since the al-Qaida attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, that focus has shifted to radical jihadists. Yet both types of extremists remain very active. "We have a jihadist terrorism problem. But we also have a neo-Nazi, far right-wing terrorism problem,"...

 

The Massacre of Mosul: 40,000 Feared Dead In Battle to Take Back City from ISIS as Scale of Civilian Casualties Revealed
Patrick Cockburn

He says he cannot imagine Mosul without the Nabi Yunus mosque (the tomb of Jonah) that Isis blew up as a heretical shrine in 2014 and the al-Nuri mosque, with its 12th century leaning minaret, which Isis destroyed in the last stage of the battle to prevent its capture by government forces. In addition, there is “an unimaginable level of human suffering with more than one million people displaced”....

 

Sistani’s fatwa became decisive to defeat ISIS. Unlike what is portrayed mainly in the Western media that Hashd is a force solely consisting of Shias, it also brought together Sunni tribesmen as well as Christian and Yazidi volunteers. However, Shia volunteers form the majority and in 2016 Iraq’s parliament recognised Hashd as an official force. The fatwa came at a time when Iraq was experiencing a political turmoil. In the wake of ISIS’s lightening advances ...

 

Saudi Arabia was the chief foreign promoter of Islamist extremism in the UK. It said the Kingdom has promoted Wahhabi Islam "across the Islamic world, including to Muslim communities in the West" since the 1960s. It added that Saudi Arabia has spent at least £67 billion over the last 30 years in this endeavour. Saudi Arabia has given endowments to mosques and Islamic educational institutions in the UK. These have then played host to extremist preachers and distributed extremist literature.....

ISIS May Be On Its Knees but It Will Rise Again If We Don’t Break the Cycle
Hassan Hassan

Isis has lost the caliphate but it has gained a transnational organisation it did not have three years ago. Largely an Iraq-focused organisation, al-Qaida in Iraq, whose founders came from various jihadist battlefields, was a localised group until it expanded into Syria in 2013 and became Islamic State in the summer of 2014. Since then, it has sought to develop branches and cells across the region and beyond. Isis is arguably a fully fledged international group vying to reclaim the mantle of global jihad from al-Qaida....

 

Bloggers and publishers were assassinated one after another, attacked in the streets, at home or in their offices, and countless bloggers were persecuted by the infamous 'Section 57', a blasphemy law. This resulted in mass hysteria among the huge number of bloggers, activists, a lot of whom eventually fled the country, tarnishing the 'secular image' of Bangladesh.....

 

The Islamic State of Al-Qaeda
A.J. Caschetta

Only time will tell if the two most dangerous fronts of the global jihad will reunite into a common front. Unfortunately, it will not require an Islamic State of Al-Qaeda for thousands to continue dying in the Long War. In fact, if the current trajectory continues with ISIS mimicking Al-Qaeda, a merger may become irrelevant. Al-Qaeda and ISIS may become even more dangerous as near mirror-images of each other competing for new fighters and for the world's attention....

 

Bombs Will Not Defeat ISIS but Maybe the Internet Will
Abdalaziz Alhamza

We started inside Raqqa, plastering walls with anti-ISIS graffiti and posters. We even created a local magazine called Dabaq, a name similar to that of the ISIS magazine Dabeeq. We would go out at night and place copies of Dabaq at cafes, shops, and mosques. The cover of our magazine was the same as the Islamic State magazine, but inside we published information to discourage residents from joining the terrorist group....

 

Islamic State Nears Its End: Even Before the Battle Is Won, Hopes of a Fresh Dawn for Iraq Are Fading

In Mosul, the initial relief at liberation from IS’s reign of terror is already turning to grumbling. IS ran services and rubbish collection better, they say. They repaired the potholes in the road faster and kept electricity going. “Why did the Iraqi government abandon us to IS in 2014, only to destroy our city when they returned?”...

 

Is Indonesia’s ‘Pious Democracy’ Safe From Islamic Extremism?
Jeremy Menchik

Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim-majority country, a democracy and the largest country in Southeast Asia. It faces many of the same problems as other developing countries, including weak infrastructure, low-quality education and high levels of corruption. Composed of over 17,000 islands, Indonesia is also one of the world’s most diverse countries, which means that protecting minority groups is an especially important concern.....

 

Stop Fretting Over Religious Sensitivities, We Must Push Hard Against Islamists
Sara Khan

Fully exploiting the uncontested space we provided them, extremists promoted their supremacist, hate-filled ideology to thousands of Muslims on satellite channels, through social media, on campuses and community events, day in, day out. In the battle of ideas, deconstructing their ideological world view was then and remains now one of our greatest failures. And fail we did – collectively, as Muslim institutions, human rights organisations, anti-racist groups and governments....

Jihad to Proliferate Despite Blow to ISIS
Talmiz Ahmad

Finally, even if Daesh withers away, other localised extremist groups may be expected to take its place. They may be without its centralised structure or its human, military and financial resources, but they will not lack in commitment or ferocity....

 

The Fall of Mosul is a Defeat for ISIS, but It Remains a Deadly Force
Patrick Cockburn

The systematic spreading of fear through terrorism is an integral part of the way Isis conducts warfare. It involves assassinations and suicide bombing to show strength and dominate the news agenda at home and abroad. There are strong signs of these tactics being already at work in 11 cities and towns in Iraq and five in Syria....

 

Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent Emphasizes Allegiance to Ayman Al Zawahiri, Taliban in New ‘Code Of Conduct’
Thomas Joscelyn

“Moreover,” AQIS “invites the Muslims of the subcontinent to pledge their allegiance to the Islamic Emirate and to support it.” The new code of conduct explains that AQIS’s men are integrated into the Taliban’s chain-of-command. “The Mujahideen associated with the Jama’ah [AQIS]…are present on the ground under the emirate’s flag, and are actively participating in battles against the enemies of Sharia,”....

As ISIL's 'Caliphate' Crumbles, Its Ideology Remains
Farah Najjar

"Once the Islamic State [ISIL] is defeated militarily, the vacuum will be filled by other similar groups, principally offshoots of al-Qaeda … which will once again be an attractive alternative to Iraq's Sunni Arabs who are being marginalised by the Shia-dominated government and growing Iranian influence,"...

 

Why US Designation of Hizb’s Salahuddin as Global Terrorist Will Put Pakistan in a Spot
Rezaul H Laskar

Salahuddin openly operates from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Islamabad and Rawalpindi, the garrison city where the Hizbul Mujahideen has held recruitment drives and fund-raising rallies at a short distance from the Pakistani military’s General Headquarters.  He has also attended rallies and meetings organised jointly with the Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Defa-e-Pakistan Council....

 

Endgame for Daesh in the Middle East? Implications for Global Jihad
Talmiz Ahmad

The very nature of the forces ranged against Daesh should warn us about the problems that are likely to arise shortly after Daesh loses its territorial bases, since the fighters have very different — and, indeed, competing — agendas....

 

Terrorism in Iran: As Ye Reap ...
A.J. Caschetta

We should hope that the Iranian people are struck with a collective epiphany: the grief they are currently experiencing has been inflicted by their government and its proxies upon Americans, Westerners and Jews since 1979 when Ruhollah Khomeini declared himself "Supreme Leader."...

 

Islamic Parties Intimidate, Fear Atheists in Iraq
Ali Mamouri

“As an atheist, I was deprived of the most basic civil rights in Iraq. I feel that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights does not include me and my fellow atheists in Iraq," Bahadly told Al-Monitor. Iraq voted in favour of the declaration in 1948 at the United Nations General Assembly. Leaders of Islamic movements repeatedly say they've seen a rise in the number of atheists in Iraq. Their statements of concern fuel even more concern among the ruling Islamic parties, who fear a decline in their political power....

Trained to Kill: How Four Boy Soldiers Survived Boko Haram
Sarah A. Topol

The insurgents ordered them into waiting trucks. It was crowded inside. There was too much heat and not enough air. After the trucks started moving, there was no stopping and no water. The sun moved across the sky. Some boys died, lying atop other boys, a tangle of sinewy adolescent limbs that moaned, shuddered and then grew still. The boys who survived stopped feeling. Maybe the sun set, maybe another kind of darkness descended, maybe twilight settled in, but they had stopped noticing.....
