The thesis addresses the development of the Salafi-jihadism ideology. Initially, we track the development of the ideology through highlighting the contribution that each of the main Salafi-jihadist theorists has made. Afterward, the discussion focuses on ISIS’s “contribution” to the development of a new era in the history of Salafi-jihadism.
