Strategic Savagery Between «ISIL» and «Al-Qaeda»

Strategic Savagery Between «ISIL» and «Al-Qaeda»

Watching news daily is my bad habit . cause some times I got high blood presser when I am listening to some people speaking about jihadi , ISIL OR QAEDA , I have headache when I found he get his information from Wikipedia or google search and he start speaking as middle east jihadi expert …

I WAS WATCHING A NEWS STATION TALKING ABOUT QAEDA LINKS WITH ISIL . THE SPEAKER FROM INDIA LIVES IN USA , NEVER BEEN TO MIDDLE EAST . HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT WHO IS WHO . WHO IS DOING WHAT . OR EVEN NO IDEA ABOUT THE WHOLE SITUATION IN MIDDLE EAST OR EUROPE . 

So I felt I had to comment and tell about that topic . so many can understand more about it .

 I Choose to talk about two dangers studies wrote by jihadi leaders . those two studies had giving the roots and leads to what we face and see now a days from terrorist groups either ISIL OR ELQAEDA ,

 Both studies defines the «movements of jihadist» targets and plans of action to be followed to get to the establishment of «Islamic state» or succession, before that proclaimed leader of «Daesh» Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi years.

 The first one is the Management of Savagery wrote by a writer, known as Abu Bakr Naji. It is not clear when he wrote it , but probably between 2004 and 2005, while the author appears to be a pseudonym and very likely to be the real name is Saif al-Adel the master security mind for AL «Qaeda».

Organization

The second one is strategic memo written by Abdullah bin Mohammed 2011.

Both books has strategic looking to the future and try to read it and write the plans telling

 how it will lead to the establishment of the Islamic State.

However, I will note for you my observations about these two books:

First major point : The Arab scene and weak regimes 

Since The Arab States formed over more than half a century since independence, most of regimes did not work to develop wealth and to ensure stability. As well as the absence of manifestations of prosperity the public except for a narrow category, Has weaken the fundamentals of stabilize procedures in their countries.

In this situation from a sense of instability those arab governments lost large segments of society basic support , besides losing its ability to maintain the loyalty of the people. What made the religious ideologies throughout the Arab world as a basic reference and attracting the masses .

 the ideologues of the takfiri groups has read this scene, attempted to push the society towards chaos

 and split the major meeting point . { page 46 in the Management of Savagery book }

 both books have been known before the emergence of «ISIS», for example «management of savagery», has been issued before the founding of the so-called "Islamic State in Iraq. As a reminder, that Zarqawi began his work in Iraq under the name of "Tawhid and Jihad" during his dispute with Al Qaeda until 17-10 2004 history of the pledge allegiance to Osama bin Laden, where he announced the establishment of the so-called { eljihad in al rafden “}

 "Islamic State in Iraq» has established 15 10-2006 elected Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, Emir after Al-Zarqawi killed at 7-6-2006.

after Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub been killed at 19/4/2010 . Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi led by «the Islamic State in Iraq after ten days of the death of abou hamza

the 2nd book { Strategic Memo } published in 2011, according to its content was issued after the Arab spring» and «militarized» Syrian crisis, probably issued after June 2011. Means that STRATEGIC MEMO WAS WROTE BEFORE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ISIL { 0/04/2013 } known as the Islamic State in Iraq & Levant 

Although the work of «ISIL» has witnessed great development since al-Baghdadi leadership, but it is definite is that al-Baghdadi does not work alone, and that the arrival of «ISIL» to what came to him but rather was due to a combination of several factors, including: 

1-      recruit experienced elements and depolarized and give it a great role , which justifies the fact that «ISIL» is the most polarized takfiri group has non-Arab like Pakistan, Chechnya, Western nations and others.

2-     Adoption of al-Baghdadi, a lot of the experiences of Saddam Hussein's army officers.   

3- advantage of the weakness of Zawahiri personality and not swear allegiance to many leaders of the organization «Qaeda» to him because of the emergence of many gaps since he took over the leadership of the organization after bin Laden killed appeared through several letters sent by some of the organization's leaders of al-Zawahiri himself. For example: Sheikh Abu Yusuf and sheikh Abubakar Zayla'i Somalia before his death .

 

4-      Advantage of weakness Iraqi security organizations on one hand and on the other hand, the Syrian army withdrawal from some near the Iraqi-Syrian border areas.

 It must be recognized that those two studies have a historical view and read in depth of what is happening in the region. It is in this respect like the studies that were prepared by the Marxist world conflicts, or type in Arab nationalism in its view of the region in general

Intellectual sources 

No one can deny that the takfiri thought came out of Wahhabism, and that every one of them represents a face of the other. At a time when Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn Abdul Wahab represents depth idiosyncratic and lumpy for both parties, the extremist takfiri groups have benefited in the legitimacy of policies in the planning and theorizing from the writings of Ibn elqem’s book { wisdom roads in Islamic politics } , Mawardi’s books and in addition to the Palestinian Abu Qatada , for sure we can not forget the writings of Sayyid Qutb the muslim brotherhood leaders . This can be seen through sources that adopted by the authors.

why Levant

 As can be noted that both the «Management of Savagery» and «strategic Memo» have identified the Levant as an area proposed for the nucleus of «state». And centered justifications for this choice in the following points:

1-      religious justification: and based on what of «sayings» for the Levant and its people and its importance.

2-      It was the center of an Islamic caliphate previous Umayyad Caliphate. Long timed ago

3-      It's close to the former Islamic caliphate center also borders with Iraq, the Abbasid caliphate center.

4-     it is close to the main places of Islamic borders with Saudi Arabia, taking into account that the Levant including Jordan.

 but the center «Islamic caliphate» and that was agreed upon in these two books, a sham

…..see p. 81, Management of Savagery, p. 15, the strategy note, p. 23.

 It seems that al-Baghdadi may combine the two views and announced his successor in Iraq and Syria together.

 we find that the authors forward justifications for the exclusion of the Kingdom as a «succession» desired. With a greater focus on Syria and Iraq and on the Management of Savagery . 

I HOPE I HAD CLARIFIED MORE REAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE REAL SOURCES OF ISIL .

AS I MENTIONED IN MY PRVIOUS ARTICLE ONLY ARABS KNOWS ARABS , not a man set in his office drinking black coffee  reading info from Wikipedia or google . then became the strategic expert in middle east . shame really .
