The War on Terror and the War of Terror. The Reflective Politics of an Elite of Grievances and Their Young Acolytes Quest for Justice. The Case of Al Ghurabaa and The Saved Sect
In the aftermath of an “Islamist” attack, public discussion of the causes of terrorism seems limited to the assumption that there could be no explanation for terrorism beyond the fanaticism of its perpetrators.
This study attempts to comprehend the discourses and practices engaged in by two “extremist” Islamist parties: al Ghurabaa and the Saved Sect.
On the basis of the author’s empirical work, the paper examines how their self-representation and their agenda are reflective of the strategies of the War on Terror.
It introduces the concept of a fetishist desire for politics and it explores the dynamics of radicalization operating among them.
Keywords: Islamism, terrorism, racism.
