Islamist Terrorism in Europe

Petter Nesser

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines several terrorist plots in 2000-3 which had dual ties, to al-Qaida in Afghanistan and to terrorist groups in the Middle East and North Africa. The cells discussed, which were pursuing attacks on US and Jewish targets in Europe, demonstrate how al-Qaida sought to include Europe as one front in its global jihad. The cases examined also exemplify how terrorists’ motives and actions were affected by their ties to militant movements in their country of origin.

Keywords:   Global jihad, Frankfurt cell, Djamel Beghal network, Tawhid, Chechen network, Al Qaida
