Abstract Commenting on the remarkable convergence of religion and ideology in the global age, this article utilizes the method of morphological discourse analysis to examine and map the conceptual structure of al Qaeda's Islamist globalism. Identifying a number of crucial concepts and claims at the heart of this 'new' ideology, the essay shows how its principal codifiers - Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri - imagine community in unambiguously global terms.
