Abstract/Summary Terrorism and Islam have a long history of association. Even before September 11th, terrorism was frequently linked by the press, foreign governments and academics alike, to Islamic practices and Muslims in general. Post September 11th, the linkage has become something of a global obsession, as the fear of communism is swiftly replaced with the fear of Islamic terrorism. This chapter seeks to demystify some of this linkage by examining nonviolent Islamic responses to terrorism by Muslim women. In order to do so, the case of Eritrea will be used.
