(p.23) 1 From Afghanistan to Europe
Islamist Terrorism in Europe

Petter Nesser

Oxford University Press

The chapter traces the origins of Europe’s jihadi networks to the Afghan-Arab foreign fighter movement of the 1980s. It addresses individuals, groups, networks, radical mosques and training camps, all of which played a part in the emergence of jihadi terrorism in Europe. It shows how European jihadism is interwoven with transnational networks emanating from conflict zones, and how the former provide support for the latter by way of propaganda, money, weapons and recruits. The chapter provides background for understanding how many terrorist cells in Europe grew out of support networks for foreign jihadis.

Keywords:   Afghan Arabs, Al Qaida, Covenant of Security, Londonistan, Training camps, Radical mosques, Support networks
