[Marius Deeb; Georgetown University. Center for Contemporary Arab Studies.]. The Islamic Unity Movement (Harakat at-Tawhid al-Islami), almost 1, members: Originating in Tripoli duringit was the creation of Sheikh Sa'id Sha'ban, previously a leader of the Islamic Association.

Islamic Unity serves as an institutional extension of Sha'ban, one of Lebanon's Islamist movements' few charismatic leaders. Islamic Jihad is one of several groups fighting Israel, including Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

A look at the Islamic Jihad movement: SECOND TO HAMAS. Islamic Jihad is the smaller of the two main Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip, and is vastly outnumbered by the ruling Hamas group.

Everyday Jihad: The Rise of Militant Islam among Palestinians in Lebanon by Bernard Rougier.

This book is about the epic battle between modernity and militant Islam that is reshaping the Middle East. The author goes inside the militant Islamic movements in ten countries: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Algeria, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel and Iran.

She shows that just as there is no unified Arab world, so there is no single Islam. Abstract. Although Lebanon’s ethno-sectarian demography is manifestly unsuitable for the establishment of an Islamic state, the salience of militant Islamist movements in this tiny Mediterranean country has few and beyond the regional conditions fueling Islamic revivalism, Lebanon’s weak state, acute socioeconomic and political inequities, and experience of pervasive.

Shia and Sunni militancy are increasing sources of tension in Lebanon. Bernard Rougier reflects on their evolution, domestic constituencies, regional ties and international drivers and catalysts.

Meanwhile developments in Syria also exacerbate friction. More accurate and deeper analysis of the intricacies of these relationships would help to clarify distinctions between social ties, identity.

But there has been little in-depth analysis of the movement which now rules 90 percent of Afghanistan. That was until a Pakistani journalist and long-time Afghan expert, Ahmed Rashid, wrote Taliban: Militant Islam, Oil and Fundamentalism in Central Asia published this May.

The term can refer to diverse forms of social and political activism advocating that public and political life should be guided by Islamic principles or more specifically to movements which call for full implementation of sharia (Islamic order or law).

It is commonly used interchangeably with the terms. Bernard Rougier's book Everyday Jihad takes us into the dark alleyways of Lebanon's drab and overcrowded refugee camps where militant salafist groups prepare for a final showdown with Fatah and the Lebanese state.

Invoking the much-abused notion of "jihad," Rougier claims that salafist groups are involved in an "everyday jihad.". As southern Lebanon becomes the latest battleground for Islamist warriors, Everyday Jihad plunges us into the sprawling, heavily populated Palestinian refugee camp at Ain al-Helweh, which in the early s became a site for militant Sunni Islamists.
