Global Jihad

 

Introduction: Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda today.

In the early 21th century, violent Islamism has become the main ideological basis for terrorist activity on a transnational level. It is also one of the main extremist ideologies of groups that use terrorist means in a number of more localized national level. We present the most comprehensive overview on the wwweb: Radical Islam and Global Jihad Today.

Sept. 3, 2006: Yesterday Al-Qaida's deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri and an American Al-Qaida urged all Americans to convert to Islam. But martyrdom through suicide they preach, is a paranoid sense that the world needs to be purified. The apocalypse within:

On Dec. 22, 2005, the leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood (no not Iran this time) stated that the Holocaust was a "myth" and denounced Western governments for criticizing those who say the Jewish genocide did not happen. Future World Jihad P.4:  Jerusalem’s Armageddon.

Future World Jihad P.5: What Now?

In spite of the rhetoric of bin-Laden supported by millions of Muslims worldwide-- of a Western religious crusade, the new conflict between the post-Christian West and Islam-- is more a clash between secular materialism and a revived religion. Here is the Evidence:

As far a current information concerns Bin Laden, his deputy Ayman al-Zawahri and others are operating out of Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) bordering Afghanistan.

Nowadays, jihadist insurgents are attacking Pakistani security and intelligence forces in the Pashtun areas in the Northwest.It must be remembered that prior to 9/11 the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence agency and military openly supported the Taliban and their al Qaeda allies. In addition to the relationships formed between bin Laden and the so-called "Afghan Arabs" (foreign jihadists) during the war against the Soviets, Pakistani troops also trained and fought alongside the Taliban and al Qaeda in their battles against the Northern Alliance and other foes. Because of these deep and historic ties, there are some in the Pakistani government (specifically within the security apparatus) who remain sympathetic, if not outright loyal, to their friends in the Taliban and al Qaeda. Additionally, and perhaps just as important, many in the Pakistani government and military do not want to kill their own people -- the Pashtuns, for example -- in order to destroy the much smaller subset of Pakistani and foreign militants. The challenge is to eliminate the militants while causing very little collateral damage to the rest of the population.

According to U.S. counterterrorism sources, U.S. intelligence had gathered some very good leads in the early days of the hunt for bin Laden and other high-value al Qaeda targets, and they shared this intelligence with their counterparts in the Pakistani security apparatus to try to organize operations to act on the intelligence. During this process, people within the intelligence apparatus passed information back to al Qaeda, thus compromising the sources and methods being used to collect the information. 

Al Qaeda has learned from the mistakes made by the men it has lost and has better secured the methods it uses to communicate with the outside world. This increased security, however, results in increased insulation, which has adversely affected not only communications but also financial transfers and recruiting. The tension between operations and security poses a significant problem for an organization that seeks to maintain and manage a global militant network. Should they attempt to become more operationally active and effective -- and decrease their security measures to do so -- they will provide more opportunities to get the one break it needs to find bin Laden.

Update  Dec. 4, 2009: A Taliban detainee in Pakistan, confirmed Osama Bin Laden early this year was in the province of Ghazni in eastern Afghanistan. Today however, nobody is reported to know where Bin Laden is.

 

 

Today our group has completed a major researchproject that expands on what we presented last year in Future World Jihad P.5  bringing some explosive information to light, but first let us start with the following: The Quest for World Jihad: Introduction

The quest for booty had been a central impetus behind the Islamic conquests, enabling the Arab aristocracy to live in great luxury. But it was not until the early 740s that the Abbasids, who resided at the time in the small village of Humayma in southern Transjordan, managed to gain control over the activities of the Hashemiyya. The Quest for World Jihad P.1.

Mentioned in the introduction of 2008.World-Journal.net World Jihad Research Project P.1, Dr Tawfik Hamid (one of the nine experts worldwide that have assisted us with this, thus extremely well researched series) described  in his book “The Roots of Jihad” that Islamic Terrorism has the support of the majority of Muslims. The ‘roots’ of the ‘why’,  we believe, now, has been fully explained by the first two parts of this series. The Quest for World Jihad P.2.

Earlier we described the significance of the Ottoman Empire in the context of today's world jihad. However the fall of the Ottoman Empire, which ended at a stroke thirteen hundred years of Islamic imperialism, was not a necessary, let alone an inevitable, consequence of World War 1. The Quest for World Jihad P.3.

Where early this year we placed a six part investigation of British encounters with Islamic warfare, we proceed now with the transitional period towards what on 9/11 became a US encounter with Islamic warfare. The Quest for World Jihad P.4.

Updated Dec. 2, 2006: The Background Story of 7/7/2005 in the UK;

Some, Muslim intellectuals have made it possible for Muslims to live concretely in a secularized world while maintaining the identity of a "true believer." Thus new forms of religiosity, such as Islamic fundamentalism and Christian evangelicalism, have come to thrive in post-traditional, secular contexts precisely because they remain detached from any cultural background. We should also make distinctions between Arab and non-Arab Muslims, hegemony and tolerance, and the role of the umma and the sharia in Muslim religious life. The cartoon rage demonstrated the limits of our understanding of contemporary Islamic religious practice in the West and the role of Islam as a screen onto which Western societies project their own identity crisis? 

It is clear that the US's "War on Terror" has been flawed so far, the question we try to answer is--how can it done better. Today's War on Terrorism.

And while for most American Muslims, the terrorist message does not become much of a catalyst for action this is different in Europe.  A New 'Jihad' Wave?

 

The United States and now also Europe, are increasingly forced to confront the challenge it faces in its interaction with the Islamic world. Of course this is not, a "war on terrorism" because terrorism is merely a tool that certain, not all, Islamic groups use to achieve their end result. However sixty years ago the Military Intelligence Service of the U.S. War Department in an 11-page section titled “Islam: A Threat to World Stability,” already explained how the Muslim world (then making up one-seventh of the world’s population, now about one-sixth) could impede world stability. It further pointed out the frustration of Muslims, the sense of longing for an earlier era, the political volatility, the susceptibility to extremist ideologies. The Hidden Roots of Modern Jihad P.1: Egypt and the Sudan.

The Hidden Roots of Modern Jihad P.2: Somalia and Lebanon.

Today (Febr. 25, 2006) Al-Qaida vowed more attacks a day after an attempt to bomb the world's biggest oil processing complex, and added that it carried out the attack "based on the instructions of, Osama bin Laden. In this P.3 however, I will argue that Al-Qaeda does not want a popular revolution in Saudi Arabia, because this may lead to a U.S. invasion to ensure the continued flow of oil. The Hidden Roots of Modern Jihad P.3: Wahhabi's and Shi'ites.

The Hidden Roots of Modern Jihad P.4: Iraq.

The Hidden Roots of Modern Jihad P.5: Afghanistan.

In ”Devil’s Game” (Nov. 2005) Robert Dreyfuss, titles the spiritual father of the Muslim Brotherhood,  al-Afghani (born in Iran),--“ the great-great-grandfather of Osama Bin Laden.” (Dreyfuss, 2005, p. 20). Plus this week in “God's Terrorists” Charles Allen describes how during the 1850’s, Wilayat Ali, a Wahhabbi and student of Syed Ahmad of the Delhi Sultanate, developed a secret network trained  mujahidin, and became the true planner of the Sepoy Mutiny in India, 1857.*

The Hidden Roots of Modern Jihad P.6: Strategic Lessons.

In October 1940, representatives of the Free Arabs signed an Axis-Arab Manifesto of Liberation in Berlin. Both Hitler and Mussolini expressed strong support for an independent, united Arab nation. From Hitler to the "Arab Reich"P.1.

Not long after the war, many German military officers and Nazi party officials were granted sanctuary in Middle Eastern countries, most notably Egypt and Syria, where they helped develop the militaries and intelligences agencies of those countries. In 1953 rumors spread in the Middle East that Hitler might still be alive and living in Brazil. From Hitler to the "Arab Reich" P.2.

In 1996 "the Qods Force, the covert-action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, arranged" the Khobar Towers bombing. In early June 2002 the leaders of four major terrorist organizations-Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine general command-met in Tehran, Iran. From Hitler to the "Arab Reich" P.3.

“The new alliance has come. The eleventh of September has brought together [the two sides] because the new right has reacted positively  They say, and I agree with them 100 percent, what happened on the eleventh of September, if it is the Muslims who did it, it is not an act of terrorism but an act of counterterrorism.”But what is the"new right"? From Hitler to the "Arab Reich" P.4.
