Abstract "Just a few years ago, Salafism was a phenomenon completely unknown in Germany. Today it is 'the' paradigm of security research, most of all when it comes to jihad in Germany. The essay points out why a differentiated concept of 'Salafism' may make an analytically fruitful contribution to our understanding of this complex phenomenon of violence. However, also part of the prospect of danger is the fact that overstraining the concept is rather part of that problem which must be prioritised and contained: that is, the growth of a twilight area of potential jihadists."
