Qatari Professor Al-Ansari Analyzes The Roots Of Terrorism: Something Is Wrong In Our Cultural Order

In a June 3 Rotana Khalijiyya TV interview, Prof.Abd Al-Hamid Al-Ansari, former Dean of Islamic Law at Qatar University, discussed the phenomenon of terrorism and how to deal with it. Terrorism, he said, was based on ideology, not on financial distress or economic circumstances, and "begins with the sowing of hatred, the sowing of extremism" and with "this rhetoric about a nation constantly under attack." According to Prof. Al-Ansari, the first step to dealing with the phenomenon is to "let go of the culture of denial," to "acknowledge that something is wrong in our cultural order," and to "open up to other cultures."
