Sample text

States that have collapsed, or are on the verge of collapse, should be monitored closely, because they offer few protections for those willing to participate politically in a non-violent manner and offer incentives for groups looking to utilize terrorism within, as well as groups looking for a base to direct outward attacks on other nations. This means that in countries like Afghanistan, a substantial part of the rebuilding process must be focused on protecting political actors and organizations that have opted to negotiate with words rather than weapons.

There is merit to this argument. A peculiarly violent and “ideologized” form of Islam is a component of the contemporary security environment. To ignore or downplay this is to ignore the “first principles” of a critical global threat. Even attempts to take a more strategic or nuanced view by differentiating between “Islam” and “Islamism” can result in distortion. ” For example, the Muslim Brotherhood a quasi-secret society to which members of al-Qaeda (including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the planner and organizer of 9/11) [5] have been associated - is an Islamist group in that it explicitly links its political goals to an avowedly Islamic worldview.

On the other hand, the conflation of jihad and, if not terrorism, then at least violence in the name of faith (or a political creed masquerading as faith), is not incorrect. But by referring to extremists as jihadis - a positive component of the Muslim historical and cultural experience - we effectively recognize their actions as being in the path of God and, therefore, legitimate [17]. And in opposing jihad and its practitioners, we risk characterizing ourselves - again - as the enemies of Islam.
