Book Event: Global Jihad: A Brief History

In his recently released book, Global Jihad: A Brief History, Glenn E. Robinson traces the history of global jihadism in the twentieth century through four distinct jihadi waves that each had global ambitions. Most violent jihadi movements in the twentieth century focused on removing corrupt, repressive secular regimes throughout the Muslim world. But following the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, a new form of jihadism emerged—global jihad—turning to the international arena as the primary locus of ideology and action. With this book, Glenn E. Robinson develops a compelling and provocative argument about this violent political movement’s evolution.

Please join the CSIS Middle East Program for remarks by Dr. Robinson, followed by a discussion between the author and Dr. Jon B. Alterman, and finally an audience Q/A session.

Glenn E. Robinson is an associate professor of defense analysis at the Naval Postgraduate School and is affiliated with the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Robinson has authored or co-authored four books on Middle East politics and written scores of journal articles, book chapters, government reports, and conference papers. He has won awards for his teaching at both the Naval Postgraduate School and UC Berkeley. Robinson has been active in policy work, working closely with both the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Department of Defense (DOD) on development and political challenges facing the Middle East.

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.

IRGC Deputy Chief: When We Strike America, The Great Satan, And Israel, It Will Be With Great Force [Video]

In a January 4, 2022 interview on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon), IRGC Deputy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Ali Fadavi said that in the 2016 Farsi Island incident, the Americans quickly realized that they were "criminals on death row" and that they are at risk of being targeted by the full force of the IRGC, so they quickly obeyed the IRGC's orders. He also said that when the time is right, Iran will strike America and its Zionist "followers" with great force. In addition, he said that if Israel acts against Iran, Iran will turn Haifa and Tel Aviv into dust. Moreover, Admiral Fadavi said that the Americans will soon be annihilated and that they will cease to control the world and the region.
