asic research of various movements:
- Al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun (Muslim Brotherhood) was the first movement that, after a series of events in the 1940/50s, transformed into an organization with many radical elements. It's where nearly all other 'muslim terrorist groups' in some way emerged from. -• search Google for al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun
- Al qaeda (The Base): "Since its creation in 1988, Osama bin Laden has controlled Al-Qaeda. As such, he is both the backbone and the principal driving force behind the network. . . " via the excellent, in-depth Jane's International Security News. To learn more about the often diffusely mentioned 'Osama bin Laden Organisation': • search Google for "al qaeda".
The Al qaeda has a 'steering committee' (or majlis al shura) which plans and approves all actions of the organisation. People also supposed to be members of this:
-• search Google for "Muhammad Atef"
-• search Google for "Mamdouh Mahmud Salim"
-• search Google for "Ayman al Zawahiri "
- Islamic Jihad, mainly the Palestinian Islamic Jihad "...which originated among militant Palestinians in the Gaza Strip during the 1970s, is a series of loosely affiliated factions rather than a cohesive group. The PIJ is committed to the creation of an Islamic Palestinian state and the destruction of Israel through holy war. Because of its strong support for Israel, the United States has been identified as an enemy of the PIJ. The PIJ also opposes moderate Arab governments that it believes have been tainted by Western secularism..." via the sometimes doubtable FAS (PIJ information confirmed through various sources). The Islamic Jihad also has branches in Egypt and other countries, which pursue similar goals. - • search Google for "islamic jihad"
More to follow soon. BTW: Security and freedom strongly oppose.
