Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Islamic Extremism is a term used to describe the actions and beliefs of violent Islamic activists, though many mainstream Muslims would say they are not Islamic at all.[1][2] Another term for this may be "jihadist".

Its definition is debated, but it is distinct from Islamic fundamentalism and Islamism in that neither of those necessarily denote or condone violence.[3] Although in theory this represents Islamic teachings at their most fundamental and literal level, many non-extremist Muslims claim that by causing harm to innocent bystanders or other Muslims,they deny basic Islamic teachings. It is claimed that they are not really Muslims, although the boundary is hard to define.
