This chapter concentrates on debates among and between Jordanian Salafi networks of quietist (a-political) and jihadi (violently radical) Salafis. These debates focus especially on the discrediting of Salafis' opponents through theological labels and accusations and how these actually mask the real and much more personal sources of tension between them. As such, this chapter seeks to give greater insight into religious authority among Salafi networks in Jordan and intends to show that the disputes between Jordanian Salafis dealt with here originate less in theological and doctrinal differences than in conflicts over religious leadership and authority.
