"Jihad is the Way and Death for the Sake of Allah is our Highest Aspiration": A Narrative Analysis of Sayyid Qutb's Milestones
author
Suarez-Murias, Adiel
abstract
The volatile dynamic between radical Islamists and Western society is well established, often revealing itself through violent acts of terrorism. This ongoing conflict has prompted a spike of critical interest in the communication between extremists and the outsiders they perceive as enemies, generating a fuller understanding of extremist ideology critical to counter-terrorism efforts. While this intergroup communication has remained a focus among scholars, the intragroup communication within these radical groups is also of significant importance and has remained widely unexamined.
