Here is What You'll Learn
This webinar focuses on understanding the nexus between Radical Islam (Jihadists) and terrorism. We will define jihad and the ideology (religious/political doctrine) in which it is rooted. We will examine jihad from a historical perspective as well as from a tactical standpoint. We will analyze jihad as an art and form of war. We will explore active and passive forms of jihad which have far reaching consequences. We will explain why it is critical that we clearly understand the ideology and motive(s) behind jihadist terrorism.
