Example text

This exclusion of militant entities is attributed to their undemocratic attitudes, controversial tactics and objectives. Nevertheless, membership-based CSOs exhibit tyrannical inclinations, along with the psychic and concrete advantages that they offer to their adherents. The actions of the IYC, MASSOB and OPC overtly show that non-state actors can be confrontational, abrasive in their rhetoric, contribute, either wittingly or unwittingly, to the deaths of their members, government security forces and other ‘innocent parties’, wreak havoc throughout their respective domains, and cultivate the reputation of a feared, respected, maligned or mythical organization.

10 Outside North America and Europe, prominent radical groups include Al-Qaeda, Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines, Jemaah Islamiyah of Southeast Asia, Aum Shinrikyo of Japan, the Mungiki Sect of Kenya, Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), Lashkar-i (or ‘e’) -Jhangvi (also of Pakistan), South Africa’s Warriors of the Boer Nation, Egypt’s Jamaat al-Islamiyya, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and Popular Liberation Army of Palestine, Hamas of the Palestinian Occupied Territories, and the following Jewish extremist organizations: Temple Mount Faithful, the Kahane Movement and Jewish Defence League.

In so doing, it is busy suppressing and disorganising much of civil society as it actually exists, with its aspirations and modes of organization centred on influencing the use of state power. While pretending to act on behalf of all civil society—NGOs, social movements, grassroots— by a definitional trick, groups which are not supportive of its own project are defined out of civil society [emphasis added]. They are ‘vested interests’ benefitting in one way or the other from the state and therefore not truly civil society in the way the polarity has been falsely constructed.
