Niaz A. Shah

Self-Defense in Islamic and International Law: Assessing Al-Qaeda and the Invasion of Iraq

Palgrave MacMillan, 2008

KZ4043.S45 2008


In this book, Shah argues that the concept of self-defense in Islamic and International law is compatible: Al-Qaeda’s declaration of Jihad does not meet the Islamic legal test, and similarly, the invasion of Iraq does not meet the international legal test. Dr Shah examines those causes attributed to Islam and non-Islamic causes of terrorism and argues that the theory of ‘reactive terror’ provides the most plausible explanation for so-called Islamic terrorism.
