The security policy of Muslim states is twofold. First, measures are taken to spread their influence abroad by disseminating their own interpretation of the holy Islamic books, while leveling similar activities by other Muslim countries in their information space. Second, countering local radical Islamism in the system of state security policy is ensured through the securitization of Islam. Measures to securitize Islam in leading Muslim countries are systemic, well-coordinated, and use all available resources.
