Ph.d. Ann-Sophie Hemmingsen: “You can be a Jihadist without wanting to kill people.”

Medierne betragter ofte islamisk terrorisme, som en slags anomali i en ellers fredelig religion. Man kan som Ph.d. Ann-Sophie Hemmingsen, også vende det om. Fra Universitypost – You can be a jihadist without being a terrorist.

You can be a Jihadist without wanting to kill people. One of the conclusions of a new PhD thesis.

There are many ways to be connected to jihad, and only a few of them mean getting involved in violence or terrorism.

This could have been a short conclusion to the work of Ann-Sophie Hemmingsen, who has researched the subject for her PhD thesis, which she defended last week.

Jihadism is considered synonymous with radical Islam. The word Jihad is originally Arabic, translating as struggle. In the west, the word connotates an Islamic holy war against Western civilisation. But… Radical islamists are not necessarily connected to terrorism or even al-Qaeda…

Ann-Sophie observed three terrorist trials for her study.

The individuals on trial and some of the people around them perceived themselves as part of something bigger – a kind of exclusive group that not everyone has access to.

They share norms, views, dress codes and language, explains Ann-Sophie.

  1. At jihad udkæmpes på mange niveauer, ikke kun voldelige, er velkendt for bloggens besøgende.

    Når jeg ser f.eks. Mohammed Aslam, beboerformand i Mjølnerparken, så har jeg svært ved at forestille mig, at han ikke skulle ønske et fremtidigt Danmark, som 100% islamisk.

    Men der er vist stadig mange i vores samfund, som endnu finder tanken om den form for jihad, helt usandsynlig.

  2. Præcist .

    Men ganske mange vantro er med garanti IKKE bevidste om, at Jihad´en forøves indenfor ganske mange områder og på ganske mange planer!

    Den er aktiv overalt – fra det der foregår på gadeplan, over opkøbe af aktier, overtagelse af de skrevne medier, af virksomheder i det hele taget, infiltrering af kommuner, amter og regeringer ….og fortsæt selv.

    Men som eksempel : tag et godt kig på hvad der foregår i Obama-administrationen !

  3. Klogere er man ikke på vore universiteter. Man kaster sig begavet over det mindst farlige og overlader det livsfarlige til folk på gaden.

  6. “When talking to her informants she never challenged their views or tried to change them. She said that it would have been stupid because you never know how a person reacts to that.”

    Ja, maaske ville hun erfare, at de alligevel ville slaa folk ihjel.
