  • 601. In Bed, Not in Good Faith

    Stephen Schwartz, 16 Feb 2004

The broadening of interest in the problem has led, inevitably, to a coarsening of commentary upon it that one must expect from an audience that wants a faster and easier way into the controversy and not a textbook treatment.

  • 605. The Making of a Jihadist

    Carol Devine-Molin, 14 Feb 2004
    Who are the enemies of Jihadists? That would be all of us in the western world, including Muslims of a more moderate persuasion that don't share the radicalized views of the terrorists. Sure, the Jihadists are hell-bent on annihilating the "infidels" or non-Muslims, but their targets really extend beyond that finite concept -- Radical Islamists have no qualms about striking in the Muslim world (Turkey, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, etc.) if it benefits their cause. Moreover, America, Israel and the e

  • 609. The Protean Enemy

    Jessica Stern, 09 Feb 2004
    What accounts for al Qaeda's ongoing effectiveness in the face of an unprecedented onslaught? The answer lies in the organization's remarkably protean nature. Over its life span, al Qaeda has constantly evolved and shown a surprising willingness to adapt its mission. This capacity for change has consistently made the group more appealing to recruits, attracted surprising new allies, and -- most worrisome from a Western perspective -- made it harder to detect and destroy. Unless Washington and it
