ABSTRACT

Islamic Rulings on Warfare   [open pdf - 337KB]

This report "identifies central themes pertaining to war in Islamic theology, argues that they have been misinterpreted by Islamist militants, and proposes an interpretation of key texts that the authors say could serve to inform an ideological opposition to Islamist militancy. We must understand the sources of both Islamic radicalism and liberalism. We need to comprehend more thoroughly the ways in which militants misinterpret and pervert Islamic scripture."
