Bin Laden, Islam, and America's New "War on Terrorism" Seven Stories Press,U.S.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Lebanese scholar As'ad AbuKhalil examines the roots of the September 11 crisis, the causes for antipathy toward the United States, and the historical relations between the U.S. and the Islamic world. AbuKhalil also reviews the background of U.S. entanglement with the Middle East, and how it catalyzed militant fundamentalist networks that came to perceive the United States as an enemy. Beginning with an introduction on the legacy of Western misconceptions about Islam and Arabs, the book focuses on Islamic fundamentalism and U.S. foreign policy, and the way both polarize the world into a "good and evil" "with us or against us" view. Drawing heavily from Arabic language sources, AbuKhalil discusses the rise of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, the Saudi connection, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the regional implications of the American "War On Terrorism."

Flashpoints in the War on Terrorism Routledge

The future security environment has been forecast in terms of nation-state clashes over natural resources, modernization, and culture. Yet America's security interests are more directly affected by the intractable tension between Muslims and non-Muslims within six specific regions: the Fertile Crescent, Balkans, Post-Soviet Region, the Himalayas, Southeast Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa. These clashes have led to extreme violence and fuel terrorism not only within those regions, but globally. The National Intelligence Council forecasts within the next 15 years "weak governments, lagging economies, religious extremism, and youth bulges will align to create a perfect storm for internal conflict in certain regions." Flashpoints in the War on Terrorism illuminates the root causes of these crises and offers policy recommendations to prevent the coming storm.Countering grass-roots extremism is necessary to ameliorate conflict. However, foreign jihadists are ready to fight anywhere they believe Muslim lands are under attack. Thus it is important to understand the relationship between internal and external actors and domestic and foreign interests. To be successful, the United States must secure lasting peace and economic development in these regional flashpoints, which are primarily characterized in religious terms. By bringing together experts on each region, this book traces the historical roots of these conflicts, the impact of colonial powers imposing artificial boundaries on populations, how modernization transformed these conflicts by making them more deadly, and their link to the ideology of Political Islamic terrorism. Ultimately, Flashpoints in the War on Terrorism prioritizes US foreign policy challenges by identifying critical hot spots that stoke the fire of international terrorism.

Al-Dawoody examines the justifications and regulations for going to war in both international and domestic armed conflicts under Islamic law. Examined are the various kinds of use of force by both state and non-state actors in order to determine the nature of jihad, the Islamic law of war, and specifically whether Islamic law sanctions "holy war," offensive war, or only defensive war. It also investigates the permissibility under Islamic law of resorting to the use of force to overthrow the governing regime and discusses the Islamic treatment of terrorism and the punishment of terrorists and their accomplices. This timely work answers the questions of why and how Muslims resort to the use of force.

For many centuries, Muslim religious educational institutions (known as the "dini madaris" have held an important position among educational institutions in the Indian subcontinent. However, after the 9/11 attacks in the US and the consequent declaration of the global 'war on terrorism', allegations against these institutions-about their being breeding grounds for Islamic fundamentalists and terrorists-have dominated India's media. Is there a link between "madaris "and violence, anti-national activities, or terrorism? How transparent are these alternative educational networks in terms of funding, spread and patronage? What are the political implications of their educational system? Providing a variety of perspectives, Islamic Education, Diversity and National Identity: Dini Madaris in India Post 9/11 addresses a number of important questions from various angles. The 12 original essays of this volume discuss the phenomenon of "dini madaris "from a historical perspective, regional perspective, and examine current developments while drawing insights mainly from recently conducted fieldwork. The contributors discuss crucial issues like gender and the role of the media. The volume concludes that "dini madaris," contrary to their public image, are not essentially opposed to change, even though the framework for change appears to be limited. Bringing together Indian, British and German scholars, and based on original and current research, this volume will be of considerable interest to those in the fields of education, social anthropology, Islamic studies, South Asian studies, politics, history, as well as to the general reader.

A History of Orthodox, Islamic, and Western Christian Political Values Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The book reveals the nexus between religion and politics today and§shows that we live in an interdependent world where one global civilization is§emerging and where the world's peoples are continuing to coalesce around a§series of values that contain potent Western overtones. Both Putin's Orthodox§Russia and regions under the control of such Islamist groups like ISIS and Al§Qaeda resent and attempt, in a largely languishing effort, to frustrate§this series of values. The book explains the current tension between the West§and Russia and parts of the Muslim world and sheds light on the causes of such§crises as the Syrian Civil War, Russia's aggression against Ukraine, and acts§of terrorism such as 9/11 and the ISIS-inspired massacres in Paris. It§shows that religion continues to affect global order and that knowledge of its§effect on political identity and global governance should guide both government§policy and scholarly analysis of contemporary history.§

Walter Laqueur is one of the shrewdest and the most perceptive historians of terrorism today. Drawing on his extensive knowledge and research, he now turns his attention to modern terrorism and prophesies how it will develop in the century to come. While the destruction of the World Trade Center and the strike against the Pentagon shocked the world at large, experts on terrorism like Walter Laqueur couldn't feign complete surprise. In No End to War, Laqueur, who has devoted three decades to the study of political violence, answers the most-often raised questions about terrorism in the light of 9/11 and the still unsolved Anthrax letters. First, what constitutes terrorism? What is new about the 'new' terrorism? Why is the Muslim world the most potent breeding ground of this new terrorism? To what extent is religion itself a factor? Is there a clash of civilizations between the Muslim world and the largely Christian or post-Christian West? Is America at fault? Israel? Did European nations turn a blind eye to terrorists and their sympathizers in their midst? To what extent are poverty and oppression the causes of terrorism? What is the likelihood that terrorists will obtain weapons of mass destruction -chemical, biological, or nuclear? Why was the United States unprepared for 9/11? Why the intelligence failure? Are Islamic terrorists the only terrorists we need to fear? What about other terrorists from the right of the left, eco-terrorists or anti-globalization terrorists? And finally, what is the best defence against terrorism?

"Holy War: The Blood of Abraham" is a book about the origins of Islamic terrorism. It addresses two of the most important questions facing the world today: What is the role of the religions of Abraham in present world conflict? Is only Islam to blame, or also Judaism and Christianity? It exposes the underlying flaws that are built into each of these three religious belief systems and, although it leaves it to the reader to decide, argues that culpability for Islamic terrorism lies not only with the failures of Islam, but also with the failures of Judaism and Christianity. It is a book that calls on its readers; Christians, Jews and Muslims, and all others, to look within themselves in search for answers to the most important questions facing our world today.

War and Peace in Islam The Islamic Texts Society

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

No word in English evokes more fear and misunderstanding than 'jihad'. To date the books that have appeared on the subject in English by Western scholars have been either openly partisan and polemical or subtly traumatised by so many acts and images of terrorism in the name of jihad and by the historical memory of nearly one thousand four hundred years of confrontation between Islam and Christianity. War and Peace in Islam: The Uses and Abuses of Jihad aims to change this. Written by a number of Islamic religious authorities and Muslim scholars, this work presents the views and teachings of mainstream Sunni and Shi'i Islam on the subject of jihad. It authoritatively presents jihad as it is understood by the majority of the world's 1.7 billion Muslims in the world today, and supports this understanding with extensive detail and scholarship. Though jihad is the central concern of War and Peace in Islam: The Uses and Abuses of Jihad, the range of the essays is not confined exclusively to the study of jihad. The work is divided into three parts: War and Its Practice, Peace and Its Practice, and Beyond Peace: The Practice of Forbearance, Mercy, Compassion and Love. War and Peace in Islam: The Uses and Abuses of Jihad aims to reveal the real meaning of jihad and to rectify many of the misunderstandings that surround both it and Islam's relation with the 'Other'.

From its birth in the late 1990s as the jihadist dream of terrorist leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi, the Islamic State (known by a variety of names, including ISIS, ISIL, and al Qaeda in Iraq) has grown into a massive enterprise, redrawing national borders across the Middle East and subjecting an area larger than the United Kingdom to its own vicious brand of Sharia law.§§In The Islamist Phoenix , world-renowned terrorism expert Loretta Napoleoni takes us beyond the headlines, demonstrating that while Western media portrays the Islamic State as little more than a gang of thugs on a winning streak, the organization is proposing a new model for nation building. Waging a traditional war of conquest to carve out the 21st-century version of the original Caliphate, IS uses modern technology to recruit and fundraise while engaging the local population in the day-to-day running of the new state. Rising from the ashes of failing jihadist enterprises, the Islamic State has shown a deep understanding of Middle Eastern politics, fully exploiting proxy war and shell-state tactics. This is not another terrorist network but a formidable enemy in tune with the new modernity of the current world disorder. As Napoleoni writes, "Ignoring these facts is more than misleading and superficial, it is dangerous. 'Know your enemy' remains the most important adage in the fight against terrorism."§§From the eBook edition.

Changing US Security Strategy Rowman & Littlefield

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

More than a decade into the "war on terrorism," much of the political debate in the United States is still fixated on the legacy of 9/11. US politics has a partisan fixation on Benghazi, the Boston Marathon bombing, intelligence intercepts, and Guantanamo. Far too much attention still focuses on "terrorism" at a time the United States faces a much broader range of threats from the instability in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Islamic world. Moreover, much of the US debate ignores the fact that the United States has not actually fought a "war on terrorism" over the last decade, as well as the US failures in using military force and civil aid in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Just Wars, Holy Wars, and Jihads Oxford University Press Inc

Just Wars, Holy Wars, and Jihads explores the development of ideas of morally justified or legitimate war in Western and Islamic civilizations. Historically, these ideas have been grouped under three labels: just war, holy war, and jihad. A large body of literature exists exploring the development of just war and holy war concepts in the West and of jihad in Islam. Yet, to date, no book has investigated in depth the historical interaction between Western notions of just or holy war and Muslim definitions of jihad. This book is a major contribution to the comparative study of the ethics of war and peace in the West and Islam. Its twenty chapters explore two broad questions: 1. What historical evidence exists that Christian and Jewish writers on just war and holy war and Muslim writers on jihad knew of the other tradition? 2. What is the evidence in treatises, chronicles, speeches, ballads, and other historical records, or in practice, that either tradition influenced the other? The book surveys the period from the rise of Islam in the early seventh century to the present day. Part One surveys the impact of the early Islamic conquests upon Byzantine, Syriac, and Muslim thinking on justified war. Part Two probes developments during the Crusades. Part Three focuses on the early modern period in Europe and the Ottoman Empire, followed by analysis of the era of European imperialism in Part Four. Part Five brings the discussion into the present period, with chapters analyzing the impact of international law and terrorism on conceptions of just war and jihad.

The Peace Report§is the joint yearbook of the German Institutes of Peace and Conflict Research. It has been published annually since 1987. Researchers from various disciplines investigate the realities of conflicts in various countries around the world. Their analyses are the basis for the Editors' Statement, which summarizes and assesses the results and formulates policy recommendations for peace and security policy in Germany and Europe.§§Causes of flight in focus: Assuming responsibility.§The refugee topic is dividing European and German society. Solidarity and a high degree of willingness to help are counterbalanced by rising xenophobia and nationalist isolation. Is the area of freedom, security and justice only there in good times and only for EU citizens? We investigate the shortcomings of European immigration policy and the threats to the European peace project.§§War and civil war, repression and terror, state failure and lack of social perspectives are driving millions of desperate people to seek a better future somewhere else. Many had initially found refuge in neighbouring countries. They risk the dangerous journey to Europe because no end to the violence in their home countries is in sight, UN aid has been reduced and living conditions in Europe give them hope. How can Europe ensure humane treatment and meet its shared responsibility for the causes of flight?§§The power struggles in Syria and in Iraq have expanded into the largest war currently being waged. An element of the conflict is the terrorism of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS), a group which also evolved as a response to efforts by the West to exert hegemonial influence in the region. ISIS is inspiring violent criminal acts in major European cities and has led to higher levels of mistrust toward Muslim citizens and toward refugees. How can we effectively combat terrorism, hatred and marginalization?§§Aggressive power politics, renationalization, and transnational perpetrators of violence are destabilizing the existing international order within Europe as well. Military intervention and a new arms race are threatening to poison international relations. How to deal with authoritarian regimes, how to resolve conflicts through civil means?§§The Peace Report is published on behalf of the five German peace research institutes by Margret Johannsen, Bruno Schoch, Max M. Mutschler, Corinna Hauswedell and Jochen Hippler, with funding from the German Foundation for Peace Research.§§

Volatile Landscape The Jamestown Foundation

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Violence in Iraq has declined since its civil war of 2005-07 due to the implementation of the U.S. counterinsurgency strategy, Shi'a militia ceasefires, and the emergence of Iraq's Awakening Movement. But as the U.S. military draws down its forces, Iraq remains a fragile, unreconciled state, riddled with sectarian tensions and new political rivalries that may negatively affect its future security and stability. Al Qaeda in Iraq, Ba'athist elements, and Sufi insurgents alike have learned to adapt to the new challenges they face, while gradually evolving into a movement dominated by indigenous fighters. More determined on targeting and undermining the Iraq government, this new generation of militants is bound to pose a considerable threat to Iraq's security for the foreseeable future. Volatile Landscape provides advanced and in depth perspectives on the Iraqi insurgency, the various insurgent groups and leaders that shape the insurgency, and the tactics and strategies they employ. Contributors include Mahan Abedin (Institute for Defence Studies and Analysis, New Delhi), Rafid Fadhil Ali (BBC World Service), Abdul Hameed Bakier (intelligence expert on counterterrorism, crisis management, and terrorist-hostage negotiations), Ahmed S. Hashim (U.S. Naval War College), Lydia Khalil (Council on Foreign Relations), Erich Marquardt (CTC Sentinel), Andrew McGregor (Aberfoyle International Security and Jamestown Foundation's Global Terrorism Analysis), Babak Rahimi (University of California-San Diego), David Romano (Rhodes College and Inter-University Consortium for Arab and Middle East Studies), Michael Scheuer (formerly with the CIA Counterterrorist Center), Rachel Schneller (Council on Foreign Relations), Murad Batal al-Shishani (analyst of Islamic groups and terrorism), Pascale Combelles Siegel (independent defense consultant), Emrullah Uslu (Center for Middle Eastern Studies, University of Utah), Reidar Visser (Norwegian Institute of International Affairs), Wladimir van Wilgenburg (Kurdish newspaper Rudaw), and Joel Wing (Musings on Iraq blog)

From Secularism to Jihad Praeger

Inne 1

Looks at the life and philosophy of Sayyid Qutb, dubbed 'the godfather ideologue of al-Qaeda'. The modern political idea of "jihad" - as a violent struggle against corrupt or anti-islamic regimes - is essentially the brainchild of one man who turned traditional islamic percepts inside out and created radical political islam. Using the evolution of Egyptian thinker Sayyid Qutb's life and writings, Musallam traces and analyses Qutb's alienation and subsequent emergence as an independent Islamist within the context of his society and the problems that it faced. A secular man of letters in the 1930s and 1940s, Qutb's outlook and focus on Qur'anic studies underwent drastic changes during World War II. Radicalized following his stay in the United States in the late 1940s and during his imprisonment from 1954 to 1964, Qutb penned controversial writings which would have a significant impact on young Islamists in Egypt for decades following his death and on global jihadist Islamists for the past quarter century. Since September 11, 2001, the West has dubbed Qutb "the philosopher of Islamic terror and godfather ideologue of al-Qaeda." The first book to examine Qutb's life and thought in the wake of the events that ignited the "War on Terrorism." The first biography of Qutb in English for a general reader. This book provides a portrait of the father of radical political islam. It analyses how an intellectual becomes radicalised.
