Sustainable Stability in the Middle East: A Governance Structure Built on Civil Society

17/05/2017 | by Multiple Authors

In this time of international, national and interpersonal conflicts where bombast and vagaries are the norm, we need specific, actionable solutions for global problems. We suggest that sustainable stability in the Middle East is possible through a process that calls on regional integration through a governance structure crafted primarily by civil society, i.e., the private sector, professional societies, academics and NGOs, not by national governments. Our proposed governance structure is built on commonalities, on the universal concepts and principles of fairness and the benefits to society through progress in science, technology, medicine, education and the arts.

Attiya Allah al-Libi – A Person of Influence on the Salafi-Jihadist Movement in the Gaza Strip

13/05/2017 | by JWMG Desk

Introduction

In 2015, in the framework of activities by the Salafi-jihadist movement in the Gaza Strip, the Dar al-Mujahideen publishing house published a volume containing all of the writings, speeches and notes of Sheikh Attiya Allah al-Libi, a senior member of Al-Qaeda, a prominent ideologue and one of the central figures in the world of jihad until his death in August 2011.

The mere fact that this volume was published four years after Attiya Allah’s death testifies to his importance in the jihadist thought and his influence on the Salafist thought and ideology of Al-Qaeda supporters even today. The publication of the volume by the Salafi-jihadist movement in Gaza indicates that members of this movement identify with Attiya Allah’s doctrine in particular, and with Al-Qaeda’s ideology in general.

This document includes a general review of the thick volume – which contains at least 2,000 pages – in an attempt to extract the central themes and issues that occupied Attiya Allah and that continue to occupy his supporters and readers.
