Summary
English translation of a series of four corrective Arabic manifestos issued by the Gama'ah Islamiyah, who formed part of the coalition of radical Islamists groups that is believed to have played an instrumental role in acts of global terrorism, including the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In 1997, the imprisoned leaders renounced political violence as a means of pursuing their goal of Islamicising the Egyptian state and society. This came of a reexamination of their former position in light of what they came to understand of shari'ah and the proper application of jihad
