Product Overview

Combating Terrorism describes the efforts made by the government of Saudi Arabia to combat terrorism with specific reference to the innovative three-pronged Saudi strategy that has been successfully implemented in the Saudi Arabia Kingdom. Asseri traces the problems around defining terrorism, highlighting the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter, and goes on to a functional definition. He also discusses terrorism in practice and highlights its purposes and goals, defines it in its historical perspective, and concludes with terrorism practiced in the name of religion.

The Islamic perspective on terrorism is examined, and Combating Terrorism outlines the abhorrence that Islam has for terrorist practices, the real meaning of jihad and the Islamic tradition of peaceful co-existence. Asseri elaborates on the root causes of terrorism with specific stress on the grievances of Muslims throughout the world. He then explains how the three-pronged Saudi strategy is practiced within its domestic, regional, and international dimensions.

Combating Terrorism also offers some case studies on the Saudi strategy and contains some concluding remarks with regard to pursuit of a world free of terror.
