It is remarkable how the collapse of the ‘Tamkin’ strategy, based upon state building by insurgents and fight against the local Arab governments (Taghut), paves now the way for the resurgence of al-Qa’idah and its strategic use of terrorism to hit the ‘far enemy’, the Western governments and societies.
The new ‘munasahah’ campaign organized by AQIM to recruit the disbanded ISIS fighters is a serious threat for Europe.
A second element highlighted by the interview is the emerging leadership of Barhrain foreign fighters in Libya and neighbouring areas. Bahrain is ruled by a repressive and violent monarchy, supported by the Sunni Gulf States against the impoverished shi’I minority. In this context the members of the Sunni religious establishment and ruling families are radicalized by the climate of religious violence and hatred campaigns organized by the local regime, with the support of the Gulf Monarchies and the silence of the Western powers.
THE EMERGING OF SUNNI FOREIGN FIGHTERS FROM BAHRAIN IN AFRICA REMEMBERS THE DAWN OF AL-QAI’DAH IN SAUDI ARABIA, AFGHANISTAN AND SUDAN, WHEN BIN LADEN WAS EXPLOITED BY THE SAUDI REGIME TO COUNTER THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION.
This new phenomenon in Libya runs parallel to the emergence of the Madkhali sect in Libya, supported by Heftar in Benghazi, who tries to destabilize the al-Sarraj government with money from the Emirates and army and control & command tools from Egypt. Heftar already exploited ISIS when he granted a safe passage to their fighters from the East territories to Sirce and forced then Misrata Forces to a cruel urban battle, which costed more than 700 victims to the martyr city.
In Libya we are witnessing again the ‘big game’ between regional and international powers, who risk to lose control over their proxies and create then International terrorism.
