Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the Muslim diasporic spread into the West, an increasingly noticeable cluster of novel diaspora communities extensively networking among them, with an eye to the resulting production of a new sentience, enhanced by the foundational sacred code, and the construction of a novel collective identity. The enhanced presence of Muslim Diasporas in the West, and particularly in Europe, constituted newly forming social realities for both hosts and newcomers. Contemporary permeable borders and the virtual world of global media facilitated contacts with them, and provided an ambiance of supra-territoriality. Like other modern resistance movements to homogenization in the new world system and as the re-actualization and development of sanctioned classic Islamic precepts, the new imagery of the Ummah is marked not only by involving national affiliation, but by the politicization of the collective as well.

Keywords: Muslim nationalism; novel diaspora communities
