The Image of the Other as Enemy Radical Discourse in Indonesia

by Muhammad Iqbal Ahnaf

The Image of the Other as Enemy Radical Discourse in Indonesia Synopsis

This book analyzes the systematic construction of the image of the Other (that is, non-Muslims) by two radical Islamic Groups, Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia and Majelis Mujahidin Indonesia. The author documents discourse patterns in the groups' publications and speeches stereotyping non-Muslims as hostile towards Islam and imagining Islam's imminent victory after an inevitable clash with all other civilizations. Although these groups do not engage in physical violence, the author categorizes their efforts to stereotype non-Muslims as symbolic violence and counterproductive because of the religious and ethnic pluralism of Indonesian society.
