Founded in the late 1980s in Afghanistan, Al Qaeda, under the leadership of Osama bin Laden, has come to symbolize contemporary terrorism for many. However, for a significant fundamentalist Islamist minority, it represents a force that is resisting Western encroachment and the 'apostate' regimes ruling Muslim countries.
The Al Qaeda of the 1990s no longer exists. Although it has suffered serious reverses with the loss of its training camps in Afghanistan and the capture or death of some of its cadre and leaders, Al Qaeda continues as a more decentralized organization and believes it has succeeded in its self-proclaimed role as a "detonator" with the advent of many like-minded organizations and individuals that are currently undertaking violent jihad throughout the world.
The appeal of its ideology is best understood in Al Qaeda's own words and the words of affliated organizations and supporters. For this reason, this compliation has been put together.About the Author:
