This chapter covers the political discourse on Islamist extremism during the Sadat years. Sadat established his reputation as president by steering a course away from the policies of his predecessor. His distinctive legacy was his economic and political opening to the West, which was preceded by an opening up of Egyptian society. Discourse on extremism during this period bears the distinct markings of the political negotiations underway between Islamists and the state; and the Kharijites were a tool for the claims of both the authorities and Islamists.

Keywords:   Kharjism, Sadat, Islamists, Muslim Brothers, extremism, political discourse
