Islamist Terrorism in Europe

Petter Nesser

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines the Madrid attacks (M-11) and the murder of Theo van Gogh in the Netherlands in 2004, and looks at the occupation and invasion of Iraq as a motivation for jihadi terrorism in Europe in 2003-5. It also problematizes the notion of “home-grown” terrorism in relation to these two cases.
