Facebook Fatwa: Saudi Clerics, Wahhabi Islam and the Threat of Social Media Radicalization

A Conversation with Michael DoranReuel Marc GerechtSteven Miller, Younesse Safaa, and Jonathan Schanzer

After the September 11 attacks of 2001, and following al-Qaeda’s violent campaign against Saudi Arabia in 2003 and 2004, Saudi authorities launched a crackdown on state-sanctioned radicalism in the Kingdom. This included tighter controls on terror finance, dismantling al-Qaeda’s local cells, and monitoring the country’s mosques. One decade later, a new study by FDD finds that elements of the religious establishment continue to disseminate rulings and opinions that run counter to U.S. interests, and they do so increasingly via social media.
