Example text

For Scheuer, bin Laden’s historical significance lay partly in his successful lobbying for a shift from targeting apostate governments (reflecting a Koranic requirement to tackle the ‘near-enemy’ first should Islam be attacked) to an ‘America-first’ strategy. The switch to an ‘America-first’ strategy was achieved only after considerable internal debate (Scheuer called it a ‘struggle’ [Anonymous 2002: 169]) within key Islamist organisations, notably so in the influential Egyptian groups Al-Gama’at Al-Islamiyah (IG), the largest Islamist group in Egypt, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ), a smaller group that evolved from IG in the late 1960s and was indivisible from al-Qaeda in the post9/11 period.
