Inside IS - 10 Tage im 'Islamischen Staat'

Jürgen Todenhöfers file über den IS-Terror

Im Sommer 2014 führte Jürgen Todenhöfer mehrere Monate lang Gespräche mit deutschen Islamisten (via Skype), die sich dem IS-Staat angeschlossen haben. Die Erkenntnisse, die er in diesen Gesprächen gewann, sind mehr als erschreckend und enthüllen die mörderischen Absichten des sogenannten Kalifats, das einen weltweiten Gottesstaat errichten will und dabei auch vor Massenmorden nicht zurückschreckt, selbst unter Muslimen. Nach der Erweiterung Ihres Staates im Nahen Osten, bei der sie die Nachbarstaaten unterwerfen wollen, haben sie Europa und den Westen im Visier.

In so doing, I have suggested that in order to understand the social meaning and uses of these technologies, we need to examine the social movement that provides the context for their use and the identities that are being constructed within that social movement. I have also argued that we need to critically analyze the kind of labor that is required in homeschooling, who is engaged in such labor, and how such labor is interpreted by the actors who perform it.

As a key part of “a larger script of idealized family relations, motherhood is a lead role in God’s plan” for authoritarian populist religious conservatives (Stevens 2001: 76). Again in Stevens’ words, “One of the things that home schooling offers, then, is a renovated domesticity–a full-time motherhood made richer by the tasks of teaching, and [by] some of the status that goes along with those tasks” (Stevens 2001: 83). Yet it is not only the work internal to the home that is important here.

The organizational form that is produced here is very important. As I have argued elsewhere (Apple 2006), since much of the religiously conservative homeschooling movement has a sense of purity and danger in which all elements of the world have a set place, such an organization of both knowledge and pedagogy embodies the ideological structure underlying the evangelical universe. As Bernstein (1977) reminds us, it is often in the form of the curriculum that the social cement that organizes our consciousness at its most basic level is reproduced.
