Islamic Movements in the Arab World

Islamic Movements in the Arab World

  • 18 January 1998

The implications for GCC states of the growth of the
modern Islamic movement were evaluated through
an in-depth examination of Iranian Shi’a groups, the
Muslim Brotherhood, as well as the Al-Jihad and
Takfeer organizations in Egypt, and subsequent clashes
with Nasserism culminating in the assassination of
President Sadat.
In addition, the upsurge of popularity of such
organizations in Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan and the Levant
were scrutinized, particularly their development at the
expense of nationalism and liberalism, with legislative
positions being conceded and social institutions
radicalized.
