“From Hypocrisy to Sincerity”: An Analysis of Motivational Narratives in Islamic State” Propaganda
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Department of Cultural Sciences.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-5687-4300
2019 (English)In: Journal of Muslims in Europe, ISSN 2211-792X, E-ISSN 2211-7954, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 1-24Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article analyses certain rhetorical aspects of “Islamic State” (IS) propaganda. Specifically, it discusses arguments used to concretise calls to action, focusing on recurring ways in which supposed benefits of engagement are contrasted with disadvantages of abstention. It appears that the opposing notions of “sincerity” and “hypocrisy” underpin many of the arguments presented, which prompts a closer look at their respective symbolisms. The rhetorical prominence of these antonyms indicates an apparently conscious attempt to address contemporary issues of social identity and political marginalisation, whereby the experiences of Muslim minorities (including those in Europe) are repeatedly used as a discouraging example.
