Yoram Schweitzer
Military and Strategic Affairs , 2010,
Abstract: This essay analyzes the current risks to Israel’s interests in Israel and abroad (including Jewish interests abroad) from al-Qaeda and its af liates.

Después del 11-S. Al-Qaeda vista por el análisis del discurso
Castro Méndez, Evelyn Norma;
Revista mexicana de ciencias políticas y sociales , 2010,
Abstract: after the attacks of september 11, 2001, several studies have been published on the theme of terrorism and the performance of al-qaeda- this organization has been characterized as constantly transmitting messages, whose study constitutes an important vein of investigation for the science of communication, the political discourse and international relations. in this context, the present article examines some of the results of the semantic-pragmatic analysis applied to the statement made by this organization after the attacks on the twin towers and the u.s. pentagon, which was the most widely presented by the national and international press, statement that makes clear that religion is not the substantial argumentative axis, but the problematic politics of middle east as well as its implications on the relation west-islamic world.
Bezbednosni Dijalozi , 2011,
Abstract: The article discusses dialogue as an alternative to the “war on terror”, by posing a question which kind of dialogue is useful in the context of asymmetric conflict, such as the “war on terrorism” that currently dominates on the global scene. Taking into account thatthe “war on terror” is far from being a success, two models of communication are presented: 1) dialogue or negotiations between high-ranking political and military officers; and 2) open meetings and symmetric dialogues between all stakeholders in a conflict, includingextremists.The effects of these two models are discussed in elucidation of three empirical examples of asymmetric conflict: Northern Ireland, Iraq after the US invasion in 2003 andthe US/West vs. Taliban/Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan/Pakistan. The article argues that in the two former cases, mediation and negotiations probably preceded the change of attitude among the belligerents, especially those of the rebel groups using terror tactics. However,in the third case, there is hardly any indication that Jihadists will participate in a genuine dialogue. Consequently, a revised or third model of dialogue has to take the following question into consideration: Can genuine dialogue take place between people who arewidely different not only in terms of power and relation to the conflict, but also in attitude towards dialogue itself? The paper presents a third model for dialogue that embeds symmetric dialogues in a wider structure of dispute and dialogue.

La reconducción estratégica de Al-Qaeda: ?del liderazgo de Osama bin Laden a la dimensión masiva-popular?
Ahmed Ghotme,Rafat;
Civilizar Ciencias Sociales y Humanas , 2012,
Abstract: this article seeks to establish the relationship of global strategic variables of al-qaeda with religious ideology, political islam, trying to incorporate a cross section and total phenomenon. it argues that the link lies in the expansion strategy and top-down decentralization created by the central base of al-qaeda, where regional networks have some autonomy but are determined by the central leadership and his adaptation of the islamist ideology to an internationalist shed, revolutionary and violent organization.
Implications of the War On Terror for Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, Pakistan
Manzoor Ahmad
Journal of Critical Globalisation Studies (JCGS) , 2010,
Abstract: The US-led War on Terror in Afghanistan conducted for the aim of eliminating Al- Qaeda and Osama-bin-Laden has brought about enormous economic, social and political changes in the region. Pakistan’s role as a front-line state in the War on Terror has had profound implications for its domestic politics and foreign policy. Pakistan not only took a U-turn on its Afghanistan policy, but also had to crack down on internal extremism and terrorism. Several military operations were carried out against the so- called terrorist factions in tribal areas and some other parts of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP), renamed as Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KPK) under the 18th Amendment to the Constitution of 1973 of Pakistan. With a majority Pashtun population, KPK has been a target of the War on Terror due to its social structure, cultural restraints and the religion of its inhabitants on the boundary with Afghanistan. The socio-cultural similarities and geographical proximity with Afghanistan have made it a sanctuary for Al-Qaeda members. The War on Terror in KPK has had negative political, economic and social repercussions for the region and thus has created hatred among the Pashtuns. This paper is an attempt to analyze the factors which made the Pashtuns of this area prone to militancy. It will analyze the political, economic and social implications of the War on Terror for KPK in general and its Pashtun population in particular.

Analysis and background of the “Arab Spring” in Libya
Elvin Aghayev
European Researcher , 2013,
Abstract: The “Arab Spring” which first broke out in Tunisia and disseminated to many countries in the Arab world has become one of the most actual topics of the international political agenda in the recent years. The protests that began against the Gaddafi regime after the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt led the opponents to unite under a single umbrella in a short time and form the main opposition in the country. The opponents which first came to the fore with civilian protest movements then continued their struggle against the government with armed attacks. In this article we are going to analyse the “Arab Spring” in Libya which broke out in February 2011 leaving its mark that year and investigate the positive and negative effects
Al-Qaeda’s Global Network and its influence on Western Balkans nations
Darko Trifunovic
Circunstancia , 2009,
Abstract: Countries of the Western Balkans have long been a target of Islamic fanatics aiming to create a corridor for radical Islam to expand into South East Europe, Western Europe and the US . Cross-border cooperation of Islamic terrorists and extremists reveals much about the structure of their organization, their goals, and their methods. Both the terrorist attacks on the US on 9/11/2001 and the 2004 Madrid bombings involved Islamic extremists directly or indirectly linked to Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Al-Qaeda and Suicide Terrorism: Vision and Reality
Yoram Schweitzer
Military and Strategic Affairs , 2010,
Abstract: Suicide bombings are not a new phenomenon in the annals of contemporary terrorism. What characterizes modern suicide terrorism and sets it apart from suicide attacks carried out from the rst century until the middle of the 20th is that it is perpetrated by means of explosives carried on the suicide attacker’s body or on some type of mobile platform driven by the suicide attacker into his target, which he detonates along with himself. Al-Qaeda adopted the weapon and made it into its trademark. The organization has re ned the technique and given it dramatic signi cance. The way al-Qaeda operates terrorism, with an emphasis on cultivating and disseminating suicide terrorism, derives from its ideological code and its corresponding administrative operational approach. Because al-Qaeda sees itself at the forefront of global jihad and a paragon for its af liates, it seeks to instill among Muslims around the world its militant worldview in general and the proper way to conduct the armed struggle via suicide terrorism in particular.
