Prophetic Precedents for Various Types of Warfare

This one is for all those who believe that Jihadis act strictly according to the Qur’an and the Sunna.  It’s a detailed study by Abu al-Harith al-Ansari of the various types of warfare and the prophetic precedents for each.  There are 41 kinds in all, including “media warfare,” “economic warfare,” “secret warfare,” “war of attrition,” and so forth.  If you’ve ever needed to make the argument that Islamic scripture determines Jihadi behavior, this 278-page book is for you.

Of course, you’d still have a hard time explaining why a branch of al-Qaeda in Iraq recently broke with the organization and renounced suicide attacks.

  1. Thanks for the response; I have to say I’m sorry to hear that.

    Forensic theology seems to me to be a fairly important aspect — but I personally lack the language skills, so am dependent on texts supplied by others, which often seem to leave out (crucial) religious passages.

    I greatly appreciate the work CTC does in this area, though I naturally have a short wish-list…
