Islamic Political Ethics Civil Society, Pluralism, and Conflict Edited by Sohail H. Hashmi with a Foreword by JACK MILES
ISLAMIC POLITICAL ETHICS
If al- Qa’ida is a Muslim movement with military designs both on the umma itself and on the West, then it must be understood, in the first place, for what it is—namely, a deviant form of a major world religion and not simply a latter-day species of organized crime.
To say this is not to dignify al-Qa’ida.
It is rather to suggest that containing the threat to world peace that it poses may entail constructing and promoting a viable and authentically Muslim alternative to its fatally appealing political vision.
It is, then, no idle academic exercise that the thinkers whose work is collected here have in hand. The long-term practical importance of their work can scarcely be overstated.
The West has been eager to see more democratic political systems emerge within the Muslim world but—for reasons rooted deep in Western history—slow to recognize that the task of creating such alternatives must involve Islam itself.
Although President George W. Bush did well after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to declare that Osama bin Laden did not repre¬ sent true Islam, the American State Department seems little interested in asking who does represent true Islam.
This question—directly in¬ volving, as it does, the study of religion—is one that officially secular Western military and diplomatic institutions are designed never to ask, one that they rarely even notice they are not asking.
This silence marks the knowledge gap that must be closed if peace is to be achieved, and the authors of this volume may well be a part of closing it.
