Wahhabi Islam in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a relatively new phenomenon. Before the 1992-1995, this interpretation of Islam was unknown to most of the Bosnian Muslims, as they follow another school of Islamic thought. However, with the disintegration of the Former Yugoslavia, and outbreak of hostilities, Bosnian Muslims were subjected to ethnic cleansing and genocide, and witnessed destruction of their cultural and religious heritage. Felt deserted by the West, the Bosnian government turned to others for help. Those included Islamic charities, which, outraged at what had been happening to their fellow Muslims, were sending assistance in form of humanitarian aid, equipment, weapons and volunteers, also known as Mujahedin. With them came the Wahhabi Islam, as majority of those charities were from Saudi Arabia, where Wahhabism is the official state creed. The Bosnians were at first grateful, but as time passed, they grew more and more uncomfortable with the presence of foreign fighters and Wahhabi missionaries, as some of them had been very aggressive in the way they imposed their religious views. Some even committed war crimes during the war against members of other ethnic groups. However, a small number of Bosnians accepted the new form of Islam, and were determined to spread it as far as they could. The initial aggressiveness of the Wahhabi movement and incidents they staged subsided after September 11th terrorist attacks, as a result of efforts of Bosnian authorities to do their share in the global "war on terror". Still Wahhabis managed to survive the difficult times, and continue to spread their message. However, the message has not gone far, as majority of Bosnian Muslims chose not to follow their ideas. Therefore, Wahhabi mission in Bosnia failed, and Bosnia never became Islamic state ruled by Islamic law. Although still active, the movement remains on the margins of social and political life in Bosnia. The purpose of this Thesis is to analyze Wahhabism in Bosnia in a wider context of events that paved the way for the emergence of political Islam, Wahhabism as a religious preaching and later ideology, and in the historical background of Bosnian Muslims' aspirations for self-determination and political organization.

The development of new and social networking sites, as well as the growth of transnational Arab television, has triggered a debate about the rise in transnational political and religious identification, as individuals and groups negotiate this new triad of media, religion and culture. This book examines the implications of new media on the rise of political Islam and on Islamic religious identity in the Arab Middle East and North Africa, as well as among Muslim Arab Diasporas. Undoubtedly, the process of globalization, especially in the field of media and ICTs, challenges the cultural and religious systems, particularly in terms of identity formation. Across the world, Arab Muslims have embraced new media not only as a source of information but also as a source of guidance and fatwas, thereby transforming Muslim practices and rituals. This volume brings together chapters from a range of specialists working in the field, presenting a variety of case studies on new media, identity formation and political Islam in Muslim communities both within and beyond the MENA region. Offering new insight into the influence of media exposure on national, political, and cultural boundaries of the Islamic identity, this book is a valuable resource for students and scholars of Middle Eastern politics, specifically political Islam and political communication.

This volume offers a comprehensive discussion of the contemporary debates within political Islam, providing an in-depth analysis of the specific movements, countries and regions in the Arab world and Israel. The contributors contend that the evolution of Islamic movements is contextual rather than ideological. Therefore, Islamic movements are best understood individually within their own historical, socio-political and cultural setting. Political Islam is an essential reference for academi, researchers and the media, as well as general readers with an interest in Islamic political debates. Contributors include Abdullah Baabood, Youcef Bouandel, Abdelwahab El-Affendi, Kamal Helbawy, Roel Meijer, Ibrahim Moussawi, Tariq Ramadan, Tilde Rosmer, Murad Batal al-Shishani, Sara Silvestri and Camille Tawil. '[Hroub's] work on Hamas is exceptional ... a lucid, informative and extremely valuable introduction to this complex organisation.' Sara Roy, Harvard University

Political Islam, to be distinguished from Islam as a culture or a religion, and from Islamic Fundamentalism, is an increasingly important feature of the western political scene. The ideologies of Political Islam reflect the fact that some of their adherents live and work within a Western socio-political context. Although Political Islam has been widely written about in Muslim countries, very little has been published the West, and this book attempts to redress that imbalance.With a range of outstanding contributors that includes academics and human rights advocates this book tackles the diversity of Islamist thinking and practice in various Western countries and explores their transnational connections in both East and West. The book analyses developments in Islamist thinking and activities, and their connections to the latest global political and economic trends, and discusses future evolutions of the ideology and its manifestations.

Reaching beyond traditionally politicised scholarship to provide a unique perspective on the place of religion and culture in global and local politics, this book examines the impact of Islam on 'civilizational' relations between different groups and polities. Bassam Tibi takes a highly original approach to the topic of religion in world politics, exploring the place of Islam in society and its frequent distortion in world politics to the more radical Islamism. Looking at how this becomes an immediate source of tension and conflict between the secular and the religious, Tibi rejects the 'clash of civilizations' theory and argues for the revival of Islamic humanism to help bridge the gap. Chapters expand on: inter-civilizational conflict in global politics dialogue between religious and secular, East and West western concepts of Islamism euro-Islam and the Islamic diaspora in Europe Islamic humanism as a tool for bridging civilizations. Shedding new light on the highly topical subject of Islam in politics and society, this book is an essential read for scholars and students of international politics, Islamic studies and conflict resolution.
