Summary
"In Leaderless Jihad, Marc Sageman documents how Islamist terror networks are evolving into more fluid, independent, and unpredictable entities than their more structured forerunners that carried out the atrocities of 9/11. These "homegrown" wannabes form a scattered global network, a leaderless jihad. Although physically unconnected, they constitute a virtual yet violent social movement as their fluid membership drifts to Internet chat rooms that connect them and provide them with inspiration and guidance. As the threat has migrated from outside to inside Western countries, the challenge for governments lies in detecting and neutralizing these groups before they become violent." "Drawing on historical analogies, Sageman argues that jihadism is self-limiting in terms of both structural capability and appeal. Eventually, its followers will turn away from violence as a means of expressing their discontent. The book concludes with Sageman's recommendations for counterterrorism law enforcement efforts. Homeland security, he argues, is best accomplished through a strategy of bringing to Justice real terrorists, containing potential terrorists, and exercising restraint with respect to the Muslim community."--Jacket
