This study provides a new approach to the analysis of Salafi movements, which aims to account for the great behavioral dynamic in Salafi activism. It argues that previous approaches to categorizing different Salafi currents have led to static categorizations that could not account for the diversity and flexibility of Salafi judgments, and that ultimately led to faulty generalizations regarding the behavior expected of Salafi movement actors.
