Example text

Second, a new generation of Islamist groups might be more willing to follow the fatwa of Shaykh al-Fahd or the book of Abu Mus’ab al-Suri and encourage the use of such weapons if and when the mujahidin find they have no other alternative. The view of WMD use in a “Doomsday” scenario is an integral part of the apocalyptic aspirations of the “audience” of global jihad, but not necessarily of its clerics or scholars. These expectations slowly increase, which creates among the supporters of global jihad a sense of a coming “explosion” in Iraq, Europe, or the United States.

Many of the mujahidin in Afghanistan and later on in Iraq—especially those who came from other countries, either as exiles or on a voluntary basis—adopted the takfir principles of creating an isolated society of true Muslims waging jihad against the rest. They also seized upon the extreme brand of Wahhabism practiced in the 1930s by the Wahhabi Ikhwan zealots, who settled on the borders of the new Saudi Arabian kingdom and developed radical ideas that were counter to the rest of their society. According to Abdallah Azzam, the only way to consolidate all of these ideas was through protracted jihad.

This is especially the case when the war is being waged against non-Muslims—as against Israel and in Iraq—and is thus more likely to enjoy governmental tolerance and public support. In Saudi Arabia, for example, telethons and public appeals have been organized to finance Hamas. Funds may also be raised as protection money, since those giving can fear they will themselves be attacked if they do not provide such support. In some cases, business enterprises may be set up as fronts or to finance groups.
