Contents:
Prologue ---- The radical pathways framework --- Inside the "garden" of Indonesian Islam --- The "bouquet" of Darul Islam --- From haters to killers : the final steps towards Bali --- Blocking radical pathways : some implications for policy.
Summary: This book explores why some Muslims turn to violent jihad in the world's most populous Muslim nation, Indonesia. This book explores two of the most crucial areas of the war on terror - why some Muslims turn to violent jihad, and that process in the world's most populous Muslim nation, Indonesia. The recent history of terrorism in Indonesia has brought this country into the world spotlight: the Bali night club bombing by Islamists in 2002 was one of the worst terrorist attacks in history. The violence, unfortunately, continues: in 2008, radicalized Indonesian Islamic clerics have called for holy war against their compatriots who belong to the despised Ahmadiya sect (a group that believes there was another prophet after Muhammad). Written by an Indonesian native and expert in Indonesian security, "Radical Pathways" uncovers the reasons why this island nation is a hotbed of Islamic radicalism. -- Publisher description.
