ABSTRACT

Covid-19, Jihadism and the Challenge of a Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "While the world questions the responsibility for the coronavirus epidemic, radical Islam solves the riddle with an assertion: God punishes unbelievers who persist in defying his authority. Punishment of apostates, ordeal inflicted by the Most High: armed groups maintain a doctrinal line without innovation. For the Islamic State (IS) group, we are in the presence of a 'wrath of God' which has become the 'nightmare of the crusaders', as shown by the health record of the Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and the economic uncertainties linked to deconfinement. For Al-Qaeda, it is a divine 'punishment' which cannot divert believers from the final goal: to found an Islamic society."
