"Jack Thomas has become the first person in Australia to be convicted under Australia's new terrorist funding laws. The father-of-three was found guilty by a Melbourne jury of intentionally receiving funds from Al Qaeda. Now he awaits his sentence. Thomas tells his story to Four Corners. He reveals how he received Al Qaeda money and what he says was expected of him. He talks about how he was sounded out about committing acts of terror, but refused. I don't believe in killing innocent people," he says. "People who know me know that. I can't make people believe; as far as I'm concerned words don't mean anything. It's just your actions that count. Believe it or not."--Container

Landscapes of the Jihad : militancy, morality, modernity by Faisal Devji( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 1 library worldwide
"Landscapes of the Jihad explores the features that Al Qaeda and other strands of militant Islam share in common with global movements such as environmentalists and anti-globalisation protesters. These include a decentralised organisation and an emphasis on ethical rather than properly political action. Devji brings these and other characteristics of Al Qaeda together in an analysis of the jihad that locates it squarely within the transformation of political thought after the Cold War." "The jihad emerges from the breakdown of traditional as well as modern forms of authority in the Muslim world. It is neither dogmatic in an old fashioned way nor ideological in the modern sense, and concerned neither with correct doctrinal practice in the present nor with some revolutionary utopia of the future. Instead it is fragmented, dispersed and highly individualistic."--Jacket
Joining al-Qaeda : jihadist recruitment in Europe by Peter R Neumann( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In Britain alone, several thousand young Muslims are thought to be part of violent extremist networks. How did they become involved? What are the mechanisms and dynamics through which European Muslims join al-Qaeda and groups inspired by al-Qaeda? This paper explains the processes whereby European Muslims are recruited into the Islamist militant movement. It reveals that although overt recruitment has been driven underground, prisons and other "places of vulnerability" are increasingly important alternatives. It explores the recruitment roles of radical imams, gateway organisations and activists, and highlights the kinds of message that facilitate the recruitment process. It also shows how the Internet has come to play an increasingly significant role. Neumann argues that there is little evidence of systematic, top-down jihadist recruitment in Europe. Rather, the activist leaders of cells increasingly drive the process. The paper explores possible options for European governments wishing to disrupt violent extremist networks, recognising that it will also be necessary to address some of the underlying risk factors that fuel jihadist recruitment. Ultimately, the major challenge for European states lies in constructing more inclusive societies in which the narratives of exclusion and grievance will not resonate to the benefit of recruiters to the extremist cause
