Women as Terrorists: Mothers, Recruiters, and Martyrs - R. Kim Cragin and Sara A. Daly

No SASFOR is not selling this book. We are Just reccomending the Book for those intrested.

 

Women as Terrorists: Mothers, Recruiters, and Martyrs is the first post-September 11 book to examine women's multifarious roles in terrorist organizations of all stripes around the world. It covers political, religious, ethno-separatist, and Maoist groups in countries as diverse as Iraq, Palestine, Chechnya, Sri Lanka, Colombia, South Africa, the Philippines, and Northern Ireland.

Modeling terrorist organizations as purposive organizations that depend for support, recruitment, and rationale on a culturally defined community of sympathizers, the authors explore why women become involved in terrorist groups, how terrorist leaders turn the societal attributes of women to advantage in designing terrorist campaigns, and how women fight for the right to assume strategic and combat roles in terrorist groups. The authors conclude with a review and projection of the rapidly evolving trends in the use of women in terrorist organizations, paying particular attention to al-Qaeda and its affiliated groups and considering the implications of their findings for counterterrorist strategies.

Women terrorists:Amy Knight, “Female Terrorists in the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party

[...] It was a woman, Vera Zasulich, who heralded the onset of terrorism in Russia in 1878 by an attack on the St. Petersburg Chief of Police, and, in the following year, when the first Russian terrorist party, “People's Will,” was formed, it included ten women in its original executive committee of 29. Through-out the 1880s the women in “People's Will” participated directly in its terrorist undertakings, sharing the dangers and responsibilities equally with their male comrades. When, after a decade or so of relative calm, terrorism was revived in the early 1900's by the Socialist Revolutionary Party, it found many adherents among Russia's radical female element. During the period from 1905 to 1908 alone, eleven individual terrorist acts were committed by SR women.

Arab Women and Farm Animals by Arlene Peck

Note by SASFOR: You may ask why this content has been Scooped? Primarially that the psychology of a Terrosist , Male or Female, is environment linked. Read on ....

 

If their animals get hurt, guaranteed they will be taken to the local vet or a lay expert-type healer. The best women are able to receive is distant mystical questioning and no hands-on attention. They are required to have intermediaries to explain things to the doctor. Then the doctor replies back through the intermediary. How barbaric is that? Simple things like fistula, which in modern societies are easily repairable, are untreated in tremendous numbers and the women are divorced or shunned by all. Female doctors are rarely allowed and they aren't available to repair the leaky lesions resulting from unassisted childbirth. Their animals get more help and afterward are treated better.

That is probably why they also cannot respect the Western government and our mentality. It is a contrast that is completely alien to them. Modern day man is selling apples and they want oranges. I remember years ago Rabbi Meir Kahane telling me, "I don't want their love. I'll settle for respect." Basically his basic train of thought was no matter what the issue, the bottom line for the Arab was they understand power. And, along this same line of reasoning, they expect their women to live a life of subservience to exemplify their mate's "power" over them.

The Exploitation of Palestinian Women for Terrorism

The Exploitation of Palestinian Women for Terrorism | Women and Terrorism. | Scoop.it

April 18, 2002

Since the outbreak of the current wave of Palestinian terrorism in September 2000, there have been nine noteworthy cases recorded in which Palestinian women were exploited for terrorist attacks against Israel. The peak of this phenomenon came with the carrying out of four suicide attacks by Palestinian women in Jerusalem between January - April 2002. In the assessment of the security forces, the terrorist organizations intend to adopt this method and make use of additional Palestinian women to carry out attacks. As a result of this, the security system is clarifying the need for careful inspection and increased awareness with regard to suspicious women, despite the increased burden and unpleasantness involved.

"Here it is again, the same old story we have seen play out so many, many, many times: instead of taking responsibility for their actions, instead of owning up to what they tried to do for their religion ("the trio travelled overseas, raised money, and trained with weapons to support a jihadist plot to kill perceived enemies of Islam") and face their punishment like the warriors they claim to be, Islamic jihadists and their supporters claim victim status. They grant nothing, they admit nothing. They are always the innocent victims."

GENDER, PALESTINIAN WOMEN, AND TERRORISM: WOMEN'S LIBERATION OR OPPRESSION?

GENDER, PALESTINIAN WOMEN, AND TERRORISM: WOMEN'S LIBERATION OR OPPRESSION? | Women and Terrorism. | Scoop.it

Prior literature on women's participation in terrorism has paradoxically interpreted this involvement as a sign of women's newfound empowerment, and as an indication of ongoing gender oppression. The study examines the hypothesis that Palestinian women's involvement in terrorism indicates women's liberation. The data are derived from in-depth interviews with fourteen women who were detained or incarcerated in Israeli prisons for security offenses. The interviews shed light on the women's pathways to terrorism, the roles that they play in terrorist activity, and the aftermath of their security offenses within Palestinian society and culture. The study underlines the "no return" option and "no win" situation that Palestinian women who embark on terrorist activities encounter. The results demonstrate that although some women became involved in terrorism due to the sense of liberation that it provided, the women largely became disempowered in the aftermath of their offenses; rather than receiving praise for their activism as they had expected, they were shunned by others for their violation of gender expectations, and failure to fulfill traditional gender roles. The social and personal costs of involvement in terrorism for Palestinian women are analyzed, and policy implications of the findings for theory and practice are discussed.
