MAKING SENSE OF MILITANT ISLAM
Canon Dr Anne Davidson
Friday 16 February 2018

Scarcely a day goes by without images of a terrorist attack flashing across our TV screens.  No part of the world seems immune to these attacks, which are usually blamed on Islamic terrorism.  Since Islam claims to be a religion of peace and the majority of Muslims worldwide condemn these atrocities, we ask the question, ‘why’?  This question will form the basis of our four talks.  From in the early period of Islamic history, through to today, we will attempt to identify the root causes of militant Islam.
