This volume examines qjihadiq content on the Internet by drawing on both Arabic and English primary source materials. After examining this content as digital media, the work looks at how it is productively consumed by online communities, including how qjihadiq individuals construct themselves online and how jihadism is practiced and represented as an online activity. The work also discusses the consumption of such jihadi media by those who are hostile to radical Islam and the relation between fantasy, pleasure, ideology, and ordinary life. This unique survey features case studies, such as the cyberjihadi qIrhabi 007, q pro-US and Israeli qpatriotsq who are often openly Islamophobic, and qInfovladq --a forum that became the meeting place for radical Islamists and radical freelance qcounter terrorists.q This innovative approach to studying violent content on the Internet is a significant contribution to the literature that will appeal to anyone interested in political violence, terrorism, and political communication.15 See, for example, Henry Jenkins, Textual Poachers, page152 ff. ... 19 This point hasbeenmadeby numerouspeople, a notableexample being Robert Spenglera#39;s essay a#39;Islam:ReligionorPolitical Ideologya#39;, in the Asia ... ofreligionproposed by Rodney Stark and WilliamSims Bainbridge inATheoryof Religion, New Brunswick : Rutgers UniversityPress, 1996, p.40. ...
