Salafism was not prominent in Lebanon before the war in Syria. The chapter outlines the sudden rise of Salafism in the country and explains it through the direct influence of the war in Syria on Lebanese politics and society. Sectarian tensions in this respect are crucial to account for the rise in Salafi rhetoric, which fuels sectarianism further.
