Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

Pakistani Army Boasted That It Had the Pakistani Taliban on the Run: Pakistan’s Taliban Still Deadly
Manish Rai

Moreover it can be argued that, in some senses, the military operations have strengthened the region’s fractious jihadist organisations by forcing them to put aside their differences and work together. For example the government’s commencement of the Zarb-e-Azb Operation in North Waziristan district and supplementary operations in other districts of the tribal areas, served to soften the TTP’s differences over the leadership and to bind these groups together against a common enemy, which is the Pakistani state....

 

Armed Teachers: How Can One Expect A Teacher To Carry A Gun In One Hand And Pen In The Other?
Dr Ejaz Hussain

Such an ideological and operational divide among militant organisations helped conceive categories such as the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Taliban, and later good and bad jihadists. Factually, however, the good and bad categories are so superfluous that in the aftermath of a terror attack, the state, as well as citizens, keep wondering who the culprit was and on whose behalf they attacked.....

Battling The Beard — Eliminating Extremism One Shave At A Time?
Murtaza Haider

In the dark days of the Taliban rule in Afghanistan, visiting soccer players from Pakistan, wearing shorts, had disturbed the religious sensibilities of the authorities. As punishment, the Taliban shaved off the hair of their Pakistani guests.....

 

Libya, Extremism and the Consequences of Collapse
Martin Reardon

For al-Qaeda, Libya has been a hotbed of recruiting dating back to the 1990s, and one of its former leaders, Abu Yahya al-Libi, was a Libyan citizen. The eastern Libyan cities of Derna and Benghazi have historically served as solid bases of support for al-Qaeda, and remain so today....

 

Negotiating with the Taliban
Happymon Jacob

...Taliban seem to be intransigent on a number of fundamental issues that could come up as serious difficulties on the negotiating table. The most important issue is that the Taliban, who refer to themselves as the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan”, continue to be unwilling to submit themselves to the Afghan Constitution and accept the term “Islamic Republic of Afghanistan” written in its preamble. Intent on creating an “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan”...

 

Terrorism is a “mediated threat”. It requires an interpretation and definition from its audience for it to become terrorism. Certainly, the physical threat of terrorism needs no interpretation, but the fear toward it requires mediation.....

 

To Make a Case against Islamic State's Cultural Vandalism, Western Armies Must Set an Example

But the latest revelation about cultural vandalism raises broader questions about the way historical and spiritual monuments are treated in war zones. To make a convincing case against IS, Western governments need to demonstrate their own respect for vulnerable heritage.  Of course, IS makes a point of flouting all the accepted laws of war; that is one of its selling points in the eyes of its fanatical supporters.....

 

Terrorism in Pakistan: Shady War, Shadow Peace

Yet Pakistan offers no evidence of Indian involvement in attacks on its territory, whereas Indian officials have offered “actionable intelligence” linking JeM to the air-base attack, and invited Pakistan to send its own investigators. Indeed, on January 13th Pakistan announced that it had rounded up members of JeM, closed some of its offices and shut down its websites....

 

Taliban Attack Shows Limits of Pakistan’s Military Crackdown
Declan Walsh

“We have heard the rhetoric of a ‘fight back’ at all costs. But do we have a guarantee of eventual success?” Part of the answer lies in the Taliban’s continued resilience even when divided and on the run — and, more broadly, in the difficulties posed by guerrilla insurgencies throughout the region.....

 

...Nadlatul Ulema (NU), also the world’s largest Islamic association, with some 50 million members, released a video called “The Divine Grace of Islam Nusantara”. NU, whose stated goal is “to spread messages about a tolerant Islam in their respective countries to curb radicalism, extremism and terrorism”, was established in1926 in response to the rise of Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia..... Almost one century later, this organization wants to show to the world that the IS interpretations of the Koran and Hadith are not only dangerous but wrong, and today we need a revolution of ideas......

Uniting To Prevent Violent Extremism
Ban Ki-moon

Terrorist groups such as Daesh, Boko Haram and others have brazenly kidnapped young girls, systematically denied women's rights, destroyed cultural institutions, warped the peaceful values of religions, and brutally murdered thousands of innocents around the world...... 

Why ISIS Is Making Its Presence Felt In the Far East
Raed Omari

Regions and countries across the globe are now divided into: areas under ISIS control, those with large-scale presence and influence of the group and those with some ISIS presence that is expected to go downhill. Terror attacks in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, Asia, America and Africa are either directed by or linked to ISIS or are inspired by the group.....

A family of Canadian volunteers dedicated to alleviating poverty in Africa. A group of intrepid German retirees on a tour of Turkey and the Middle East. An Iraqi who had gone to Baghdad seeking refuge from the jihadist violence of his hometown. A Canadian audiologist who had fallen in love with Indonesia. They were among the scores of people slaughtered by Islamic extremists in four countries....

 

Battling ISIS in Indonesia
Sidney Jones

Indonesia needs to engage young, computer-savvy Indonesians to develop anti-ISIS messaging on social media and online, where Mr. Naim and other radical groups are actively spreading ISIS propaganda.....

 

Afghanistan War Must End But Not At Any Cost
Helena Malikyar

The already staggering Afghan casualty figures have soared to new heights after the international combat mission ended a year ago. The country has suffered almost 5,000 civilian casualties only during the first half of 2015; nearly 30,000 Afghan soldiers and policemen were killed from 2009 to mid-2015. December saw a 57 percent rise in civilian casualties.....

 

Many Raqqa residents face an additional problem: keeping their sons from being sucked into the fighting. I’ve seen firsthand that for Raqqa’s teenagers, the Islamic State’s ideology has zero appeal. What they want is its money and its guns. Not counting bonuses, a fighter starts out earning about $200 a month — more than a family needs to live (a civilian like Saeed struggles to make $150). He gets additional money for wives, children, slaves and provisions, raising his potential monthly income to more than $500......

 

Gains against ISIS Bring More Deaths Elsewhere in Iraq
Tim Arango

On Facebook, Iraqis have been sharing photos of loved ones lost, like a boy named Ali, who is shown holding a soccer trophy. “He is my schoolmate,” a friend wrote. “He went with his family for shopping to prepare for his brother’s wedding. They were all killed. I won’t forget you, Ali.”....

 

'Blogging' and 'blogger' have come to occupy various, curious frames. Today, the very mention of the words conjures notions of atheism, virulent anti-religious sentiments, religious propaganda and hate speech. It evokes emotions ranging from discomfort to anxiety to outrage. Yet, at least half our population does not know what a blog is, what it represents and what it can do.....

 

Fighting Islamist Terrorism: Battlefields of the mind

This sleeves-up, ideological onslaught on Islamism is so sensible that other European countries want to emulate it. Yet it faces problems. Grandstanding by the government (blimpishly labelling as “British values” principles like tolerance that are in no sense autochthonous),...

 

State And Non-State Actors Of Pakistan
Zahid Hussain

After it was banned in 2002, JeM broke up into small cells many of them directly linked to Al Qaeda and the Afghan Taliban. Those splinters were responsible for a series of audacious terrorist attacks including two assassination attempts on former president Gen Pervez Musharraf. The footprints of JeM were also found in the Lal Masjid episode.

 

ISIS: The Army Of The Desperate
Talmiz Ahmad

The number of those who responded to this call is staggering: the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is said to have 200,000 fighters, of whom a third are already battle-hardened. Most of them are from Iraq and Syria, but at least 30,000 are foreigners from 80 countries; about 7,000 are from Europe, including 2,500 women. ....

The Peshawar, Paris, Pathankot Link
Vasundhara Sirnate

In the last 15 years, several major cities have come under attack — New York (2001), London (2005), Mumbai (2008), Boston (2013), Peshawar (2014) and Paris (2015). In the first week of 2016 alone, terrorists have struck Kabul, Pathankot, Tel Aviv, and various locations in Iraq. ...

Expansion of Islamic State
Dr Asim Yousafzai

There are certain unmistakable signs that suggest the emergence of a strong IS footprint in Sunni-majority Pakistan. With a population of 200 million, nine percent of Pakistanis support IS but more troublesome is the fact that 62 percent do not know the answer to this question, reports a PEW research survey.
