Definition: Violent Extremism

Aug 10, 2007 Published under Definitions by DL, Middle East, OneVoice Movement

Resorting to violence to attain an absolutist vision which denies the
humanity of the other. See also Militant Absolutism.

We use this term at OneVoice to define in neutral non-partisan terms
that which the overwhelming majority of people (mainstream moderates)
need to counter to seize back the agenda for peace.
