Austria: Jihadism based on Islamic theology

Barnabas Fund August 2017

A major academic study has shown that many jihadists and other radical Islamists have a deep understanding of Islamic theology.  It comprehensively refutes the claims made by many politicians and other public figures in the West that radical Islam is a perversion of Islam and jihadists have little knowledge of Islamic theology.

The 310-page study, by Ednan Aslan, professor of Islamic religious education at the University of Vienna, was based on 29 in-depth interviews with radical Muslims in Austria.

Western governments must grasp the fact that the jihadists’ persecution of Christians and other non-Muslim minorities is primarily driven by interpretations of Islamic theology that go back centuries.
