My Middle East Week Podcast Discussion on Conceptions of Military Jihad & Martyrdom among Contemporary Sunni and Shi'i Militants



Last week I appeared on the Middle East Week podcast hosted by Karl Morand.  We discussed conceptions of military jihad and battlefield martyrdom among contemporary Sunni and Shi'i militants, the different and often competing Sadrist groups in Iraq, Twelver Shi'i Islam, and Shi'i foreign fighters in Syria.

You can listen and download the podcast at the Middle East Week SITE.
