Paris: How to Fight Back

An alternative strategy to warfare might be to wait for IS to wither by itself. But that is a forlorn hope. IS continues to exist because the Middle East is consumed by a titanic struggle between Sunni and Shia Islam. This is overlaid by the clash between regional powers and the rivalry of America and Russia. Whatever the opponents of military action say, the West is not what sustains this fight. Were Western countries to withdraw and focus on diplomacy alone, the violence would still go on, possibly for decades.

 

Like America’s Iraq war, the present Western offensive against ISIS in Syria may well be creating a religious divide, driving more Muslim youths into jihadi terrorism. Religious television in Arab countries influence minds more powerfully than Russian missiles can influence events. The question arises whether ISIS is in a win-win situation. But the more important question is whether those opposing it are in a lose-lose situation and if so, why.

 

The Rise of Al-Baghdadi and the Islamic State

In the aftermath of the fall of Saddam Hussein, al-Baghdadi appears to have helped establish one of the first entirely indigenous militant groups motivated by extremist Islam. This drew recruits from tribal networks and neighbours in his home town and surrounding villages. Al-Baghdadi, now aged thirty-two, was picked up apparently by chance in a US sweep and interned in Camp Bucca, a vast prison built outside the southern port city of Basra. …

Muslims Need To Say ‘Enough’ To Islamic Terrorism?
Dina Zaman

Muslims were asked what kind of Muslims they were, and whether they were with them, or not. As a friend ruminated on her Facebook wall, “…It's as if we have to make clear where our alliances are- what kind of Muslim are we- here, proof we are this kind – and if our views are different, we fragment ourselves further (using words like true or real to distinguish or differentiate ourselves further).”

How Modi can destroy Wahabi extremists like ISIS
Uday Mahurkar

How prepared is the Narendra Modi government should India face a Paris-like attack? It might be prepared to tackle the immediate challenge, but it is yet to come out with a long-term strategy to promote Sufism and tackle the challenge of ultra-Wahabism.

ISIS — A Growing Global Threat
Raulston Nembhard

The war against ISIS does not justify killing perhaps hundreds of thousands of civilians to root out a terror group like ISIS. President Barack Obama would be very naïve to think that bombing ISIS would degrade them and finally rid the world of them. But now that the rest of the world is waking up to the reality that this group presents a global threat and can strike at any time in any part of the world, there will be greater coordination from these countries to fight this growing threat.

 
The Joy of ISIS
Ross Douthat

The Joy of ISIS
Ross Douthat

Where the brighter joy of Mormons is invisible, in other words, the dark joy of ISIS will be entirely incomprehensible. That lack of comprehension isn’t Islamic radicalism’s only weapon. But it’s a useful one for the caliphate to have ready to its hand.

 

This has helped America satiate its thirst for oil and use Wahhabi doctrine for short term goals like defeating USSR in Afghanistan. In the 1970s, the US used the Saudi alliance to counter Egyptian pan-Arab socialist Gamal Abdel Nasser and post-revolution Iran. In the process it often patronised the nihilistic forces that have now turned their guns on the West.

 
Why the IS Survives
Frederic Grare

Why the IS Survives
Frederic Grare

The IS is not an existential threat for Western societies and the rhetoric of war can only be counterproductive, as it confers on IS a significance and an aura that, like in the case of al-Qaeda, is disproportionate with its actual importance. But this is precisely where the main risk lies. One may hope and believe that the IS will regress and disappear and that sanity will prevail, but when this will happen is an open question, and the societal cost of the journey may ultimately prove fairly high.

 

Rise of the European jihadi
Praveen Swami

In his book, jihadist ideologue Nasar wrote that “terrorism is like talent for poetry, music, painting and different aspects of the arts. The trainers and those supervising the foundation of Resistance cells must discover those talents and refine them with culture and training so that they find their place in leading terrorist operations in this type of blessed jihad”.

 
Taste of terror from inside
Jayprakash S. Naidu

The anti-terror experts from India like V. Balachandhran and D. Sivanandhan in Maharashtra had anticipated this possibility of 'self-indoctrination' years back and even spoke about it in seminars on anti-terror measures. Former ATS chief Rakesh Maria had even begun a de-radicalisation program and had some success. But, an absence of these efforts in other cities like Thane seems to have done the trick for the indoctrinators.

The Shamelessness of Ulema of Islam in Bearing with the Penultimate Blasphemy by ISIS Brutes without a Thunderous Global Protest Is Despicable
Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

It is conceivable that the a terrorist who risks death any moment while spraying  shots and hurling grenades at a crowd or awaiting the moment of his explosive suicide, shouts out the Shahadah to earn divine forgiveness by dying with Allah’s name at his lips. The gravity of the crime apart, the conviction of the terrorist to indemnify himself against any divine punishment and to earn divine reward by doing something which is most vehemently forbidden by the Qur’an (which forbids killing of even one innocent person – 5:32) speaks of the distortion and dissonance of Islamic thoughts of the terror outfits of this era. ....

That One Long, Horrible Night of Ramzan 2014
Vikram Sood

It was in the month of Ramzan 2014 that there was an announcement about the establishment of the Caliphate. The new Islamic State of Iraq and Syira followed this by uploading a video from the Chilean jihadi, Abu Safiyya, captioned “The End of Sykes-Picot”. The sleek video wanted to project a contemporary, cosmopolitan picture of Islam with a global reach. …

Fatwa Response to ISIS
Abdallah bin Bayyah

No Muslim is to be excommunicated unless he or she says or does something that is absolutely unambiguous and not open to alternative interpretations. The Prophet, God’s peace and blessings upon him, declared that simply cursing a Muslim is deviance and killing him is disbelief.

 

Wanted To Join Islamic State, Return To Wage War Against India: Hyderabad Engineer Salman Mohiuddin

In a note to the wife, Ahad had detailed every aspect of the family’s expense, how to save money, important numbers and reliable people, how to get the daughter married, and who to turn to for further financial assistance.

The most important part of his note, which raised doubts about Ahad’s intentions, was the instruction to his wife: “Never contact any police and other law enforcement to try to locate me; never contact any Attorney/Lawyer to release me from jail if I am there, or do anything on this matter, only if I instruct to do something over phone, then do it, don’t do anything on your own.”

Stop Asking All Muslims to Condemn Terror
Davide Mastracci

As such, laying collective blame on white people would be wrong, but in reality, it would be relatively harmless. The same is not true for Muslims. The collective blame laid upon Muslims legitimizes the idea that all Muslims should be punished for the acts of a tiny minority of Muslims. Once this idea is legitimized, spates of hate crimes are committed and some Muslims end up feeling unsafe in their own communities. This is not an unwarranted fear, as hate crimes against Muslims are on the rise, according to Statistics Canada.....
