The purpose of this paper is to examine, evaluate and compare the concepts known as
Civilization (Cultural) Jihad and the more traditional, violent Jihad. Students will examine the
underpinnings of each from an historical perspective. The paper must discuss a history of both
concepts and the threats that both pose currently in the West and, more specifically, in the United
States. Additionally, papers must also discuss the role of the intelligence community and how it
has engaged in confronting the two forms of Jihad as well as what role it might play in the future
to confront potential challenges and abate future attacks.
