New ICSR Paper – As American As Apple Pie: How Anwar al-Awlaki Became the Face of Western Jihad

ICSR is pleased to announce the release of its newest report, As American As Apple Pie: How Anwar al-Awlaki Became the Face of Western Jihad, by Research Fellow Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens.  This study provides the first forensic analysis of Anwar al-Awlaki’s work, which tracks his ideological path from a supposedly moderate preacher to an al-Qaeda recruiter.
The tenth anniversary of 9/11 provides an ideal opportunity to assess the current nature of the al-Qaeda threat to the West and how it may evolve.  One of the most notable changes since that day has been al-Qaeda’s increased focus on mobilising Western Muslims to commit acts of so-called ‘lone-wolf’ terror, and this report both analyses and demonstrates how Awlaki plays a pivotal role in the success of this strategy.
