|INAF 228 - Islam and Terrorism|
Terrorism is not an Islamic phenomenon; the vast majority of Muslims condemn terrorism. But there is a great deal of terrorism committed in the name of Islam. The goal of this course is to understand what motivates both terrorists and mainstream Muslims, and the profound differences between them. We will examine the emergence of terrorist groups within their historical contexts, analyze their positions based on their own writings, and compare those positions with those of mainstream Muslims.
