Islamists react towards both the West for its reluctance to address the poverty of the world, as well as towards the rich in their own societies, who are considered equally reluctant.
Islamists have often a feeling that despite the efforts they have put down in their studies, they have not managed to climb very much socially, that the jobs they were aspiring for are given to people with good social connections, but less qualifications.
Islamists are not democrats, even if there have been very successful attempts of making the Islamists part of a democratic structure (as in Jordan and for a breif period in Turkey).

 Islamist terrorism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Islamist terrorism is terrorism that is carried out to further the political and religious ambitions of a segment of the Muslim community.

 Islamist Watch - Middle East Forum
For while the public intuitively understands the threat of terrorism and is mobilized by it, and while states have well-developed institutions (law enforcement, intelligence agencies, the military, the justice system) to protect and fight against it, the activities of nonviolent extremists are not alarming and institutions do not exist to deal with this problem.
Quietly, lawfully, peacefully, Islamists do their work throughout the West to impose aspects of Islamic law, win special privileges for themselves, shut down criticism of Islam, create Muslim-only zones, and deprive women and non-Muslims of their full civil rights.
Lawful Islamists advance their cause through lobbying politicians, intimidating the media, threatening international boycotts, making predatory use of the legal system, advancing novel legislation, influencing the contents of school textbooks, and in other ways exploiting the freedoms of an open society.

 THE NEW ISLAMIST INTERNATIONAL
The rise of this current wave of Islamist terrorism in its Sunni variant is an outgrowth of the collapse of the radical leftist Arab nationalist doctrines.

 Alliance For Security - What is Political Islam?
Islamist thinkers express a broad range of interpretations on a number of central themes.
Islamist efforts to transform society are motivated by the conviction that the West is attempting to destroy Islam, a program that began with the Crusades.

 Islamist Bubbles (Gilles Kepel and Roland Jacquard) by Martin Kramer
The Islamists combine all three — motivation, vision, and support....Left to their own devices, the region's discredited regimes are likely to try to muddle through and repress opposition, its budding democrats are likely to fall on their faces, and its extreme Islamists can be expected to become the next agents of change.
So Islamists have turned to two potential allies: the devout bourgeoisie, to provide the means; and the masses of the urban poor, to fill out the ranks.
But the regimes held tight, and the Islamists made a fatal mistake: in their impatience, they escalated their violence in a rash lunge to overturn the status quo.

 "Algeria's Islamist Revolution: The People Versus Democracy?" (January 1998)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)

 Radical Islamist Terrorism:
The involvement of radical Islamist groups in global terrorism, and in the affairs of various Asian and Middle Eastern countries, has put the issue of Islamist terrorism on the agendas of governments, academic institutes, and all manner of private research groups all over the world.
Islamic and Islamist movements and groups have succeeded in the past three decades in planting in Arab and Muslim societies the notion of a kind of global cultural war, in which they confront a global conspiracy against Islam as a religion, culture, and way of life.
To conclude, it should be noted that recent developments in Islamist radicalism in the Muslim world, as well as in Muslim communities in the West, lead to the consequence that future Islamist terrorism may come to rely heavily on these communities in the coming decade.

 "The Islamist Threat in Iraqi Kurdistan" (December 2001)
Indeed, the Islamist destabilization campaign in northern Iraq began in earnest on September 23, when members of Jund al-Islam massacred and mutilated the bodies of 43 Kurdish fighters belonging to the secular, pro-Western Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which administers the province of Sulaymaniyah, as well as portions of the neighboring Irbil and Kirkuk provinces.
In November 1999, the Islamists reportedly won close to 40% of the vote at Dahuk University, a sign which local residents said was a wake-up call to the KDP, indicating that it needed to become more responsive to the public.
In November 2001, the Islamist parties managed to win just 11% of the vote in Sulaymaniyah, though many students complain that the PUK gerrymanders classes (concentrating Islamists in a single class so as to minimize their votes), and that the KDP threatens students and their families with retribution (denying jobs, graduate school admittance, etc.).

 Stealth Islamist: Khaled Abou El Fadl - article by Daniel Pipes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Islamist terrorism, for example, he deems "part of the historical legacy of colonialism and not the legacy of Islamic law."[30] By holding that "Islamic civilization has been wiped out by an aggressive and racist European civilization,"[31] he in one swoop exculpates Muslims for everything they do.
He testified to the 9/11 commission in December 2003 that "Statistically, after the attacks of 9/11, Muslim and Arab terrorism was responsible for 2 percent of the sum total of terrorist incidents taking place in the United States."[41] This statement runs wildly contrary to common sense and every analysis.
Council on American-Islamic Relations: CAIR is the (Saudi-funded)[49] attack-dog of Islamist institutions in the United States, well known for intimidating those who disagree with it,[50] for apologizing for Osama bin Laden,[51] for employing three persons subsequently arrested on terrorism-related charges,[52] and for declaring its intent to make Islam "dominant" in the United States.

 snow-moon: "Islamist" alert
Islamist terrorist: a terrorist who subscribes to a radical form of Islamic fundamentalism (or Islamism).
While I never believed that they would become a powerful, political force, I did expect-- and am now seeing-- that they might be especially effective at shifting the language when describing their "war on terror" -- shifting the language of politicians, radio and the talking heads of television.
Front Page magazine, the Heritage Foundation and Free Republic, among others, are especially fond of the term-- as is Bush's recess-appointment to the Institute of Peace, Daniel Pipes-- propagandist and founder of Campus Watch.

 TCS: Tech Central Station - The Muslim Renovatio and U.S. Strategy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
If the Islamist restoration movement is the core dynamic of change within the Muslim World, and truly of world-historical proportions,[iii] this suggests a very changed world, admittedly over the historical long term.
But the broader vision of change sought by Islamists, which so many Muslims have embraced as necessary, is being realized as it were on the ground, in small and everyday ways that do not register on the radar of big events.
The Islamist insurgency is built on a prolonged legacy of disastrous, if not always conscious, interventions by non-Muslims into their world.

 Maghreb Mirror
"Islamist propaganda has been extremely anti-Berber over the last few years," Duran said, though "at the moment [the Berbers] do not take an active part on the side of the government" because of the regime's past oppostion to Berber nationalism.
Apart from tension between moderate and radical Islamists, Duran said there is a developing split between the FIS leadership in exile and such radical groups within Algeria as the Armed Islamic Group (GIA) and the Armed Islamic Movement (MIA).
Duran concurred, adding that Islamists have always considered the United States their chosen enemy and that U.S. support for dialogue will be interpreted as a sign of weakness.

The JI and the Muslim Brotherhood have been vocal in¬†spreading Shari’a law and in their rejection of all western ideologies and institutions.
¬† Saudi Arabia’s free elections, for instance, meant anti-western Islamist clerics gained wide support, and some cynics say the Saudis knew that this was going to be the outcome, and this is why they had the elections.

 Islamist terrorism - Education - Information - Educational Resources - Encyclopedia - Music
These groups refer to suicide bomber attacks as martyrdom operations and the suicides are characterized as shohada (plural of "shahid").
The members of such groups are more likely to see themselves as freedom fighters rather than terrorists, as the political origins of such groups in Israel/Palestine, Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, Chechnya and most recently post-Saddam Iraq are often rooted in political demands for statehood and nationalist self-determination.
A medieval precedent of modern Islamist terrorism may have been the Hashshashin, an Islamic (Nizari) group from the Middle Ages that sent assassins against Crusader and Islamic rulers opposing them.

 Once Again on How To End Islamist Terrorism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
It is so simple that Islamist terrorism is the work of those who want to quickly get their country to become an ideal Islamist state, which they believe Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) to be since its inception in 1979.
The above reality of Islamist terrorism is so obvious and yet it escapes the eyes of many political analysts who still hope to end terrorism with the help of some so-called "reformist" faction of IRI whose goal is not to end Islamism but is to save the Islamic state in Iran.
The Islamist terrorists of Saudi Arabia were trying to recreate another Islamist state in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere, and they committed WTC heinous crimes as part of their worldwide strategy to usher in the Islamist "paradise" on Earth, and the ones in Indonesia were hoping for the same thing in Indonesia.
