Islam and Violence: When "From Within" Meets "From Without"

Islam and Violence: When "From Within" Meets "From Without"

Ozgur Koca

Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies, Claremont School of Theology/Bayan Claremont


Violence is the perennial problem of our species and is in no way specific to one religion, ideology, or culture. A quick look at any history book would make this blindingly evident. It is also true that under specific circumstances the use of violence escalates among certain human collectivities. At this point in history particularly Muslims appear to be subject to this problem as evinced by the emergence of many militant and terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda, ISIL, Boko Haram and the escalation of sectarian violence between the Shi’a and the Sunnis in Iraq and Syria.
