Roots of Violence by ISIS, An Analysis on Beliefs

Majid Bozorgmehri


ISIS was an Islamic fundamentalist organization which presents a radical version of Islamic beliefs, encourages holy violence, and considers others who do not agree with its understandings as apostates.

As a theoretical debate, the discussions developed by Gregg could cover the arguments stated through this study. He considers Social Movements, Fundamentalists, and Cosmic Warriors as the frameworks of religious cruelty.

Daesh`s Dogma could be analyzed in two levels: traditional platform and new generation literature. As the former, three pillars Salafism. Qutbism and Wahhabism shape the basements and frameworks of IS`s ideological structure. New generation literature, joined with an anti-western attitude and combined also with a Sense of revenge against the old powers of imperialism, justify the most violent acts everywhere.

As an alternative of being shaped in traditional dogma, ISIS’s philosophy could be drawn from 3 new booklets. The Management of Savagery (Idarat al-tawahhush) written in 2000s by Abu Bakr al-Naji, is one of them.

For methodological aspect, the content analysis, concentrated on the basic sources is selected and for discussing the arguments, a descriptive analytical method is opted.
