From Wahhabi Islam to the Muslim Brotherhood 1902-1928
Birth of Saudi Arabia
Revival of Wahhabi Islam
For Political Gain
1902. Ibn Saud, local tribesman of Arabian Peninsula, captures Ryad and proclaims himself regional leader. In order to gain acceptance and loyalty from the local Bedouin tribes, Ibn Saud revives the practice of Wahhabi Islam and institutes strict Islamic Law over the land. Wahhabi indoctrination centers (Ikhwan, meaning brotherhoods) appear throughout Saudi Arabia.
Wahhabi Islam The Soul of Today’s Islamic Jihad
Wahhabism is a radical form of Islam, founded by Mohammad Ibn Abdul Al-Wahhab in the 18th century, which claims that: any teachings added to Islam after the tenth century are false. It envisions an Islamic empire led by holy men, with no other law than strict puritan Islamic law. This is why they are referred to as ‘Islamic fundamentalists’. It opposes the concept of nationalism and borders as being un-Islamic.
It justifies violent means to rid the Muslim world against the non-Islamic element. Wahhabism eventually developed a very strong anti-American and anti-Western message.
It is generally rejected by the vast majority of the Muslim world.
1920. The Mutawa, Wahhabi religious police, operates rule of terror in Saudi towns. Churches, synagogues and any non-Islamic temple of worship are banned from Saudi Arabia (still effective in 2002). The Wahhabi movement grows and becomes increasingly radical.
Saudi Oil admittedly
The Bank of Today’s Islamic Jihad

The Muslim Brotherhood now under Husseini’s influence, becomes the main vector of hatred against the West and the Jews: the Arab World, which includes Palestine, must be free of any non-Islamic faith. Therefore, Jews and Christians have no claim to any part of the Middle East or of the Arab World.

The Jellaba runs an extensive slavery ring of non-Arab Africans and exploits the Sudanese soil for its raw materials. The Arab Janjaweed and Jellaba consider themselves racially and ethnically superior to the Africans of Sudan, justifying their involvement in the slave-trade of black Africans.
Terrible drought hits Sudan resulting in severe famine. Janjaweed Arab militias (15% of Darfur population) relentlessly attack farms and villages of Sudanese Africans, depriving them of water and provisions. Pillaging, raping and killing are common. Africans are treated as second-class citizens.

He finds refuge with the oppressive Taliban regime and rekindles connections with jihad mercenaries from Chechnya, Dagestan, Xinjiang of China, the Southern Philipines, North Africa and the Middle East. International Jihad takes shape.
2003 Unrest in the Land
Early 2003. The Sudanese Africans rise up to protest decades of looting and racial injustice by pro-Arab government of Al Bashir (Muslim Brotherhood). Two groups take arms against the Arab regime in power: the Sudanese Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement.
Al Bashir openly recruits Janjaweed militia as a counter-insurgency force against the Africans. He authorizes entire villages to be depopulated and burned. Ethnic-based murder, rape, looting of livestock and food are rampant. Non-Arab schools are destroyed. Fifty thousand already killed with no end in sight. Humanitarian crisis creates 1.5 million flee their homes afraid for the lives. Massive refugee problem results in famine and disease. Al Bashir government denies responsibility despite overwhelming evidence. Al Bashir refuses international assistance to defend the Africans in Darfur from ongoing genocide. Situation remains critical today. Hundreds of thousands of African lives threatened either by Al Bashir’s Janjaweed or by the famine and disease that have resulted from his racially motivated genocide. http://hrw.org/darfur/ (human rights watch) http://www.sundayherald.com/43939 Darfur Documents Confirm Government Policy of Militia Support (Human Rights Watch, 20-7-2004)

A little Background...
Chechen population becomes increasingly Islamic between 1300 and 1700, as the Muslim Ottoman Empire expands. Most practice Sufi Islam.
The Caucasian Wars
In 1791, the ruthless expansion of the Russian Empire reaches Chechnya. The Russians seek complete surrender of the local Sufi tribes.
Czar Nicholas I initiates a rule of terror.
In 1859, Chechen leader Imam Shamil (1797-1871) surrenders marking the loss of Chechen independence.
19th century Genocide
Massive deportation of Chechnya’s by Russia ensues. One million deported from their homes in Northern Caucasus.
Ninety percent (90%) are killed by violence, disease or famine in Russian campaign of ethnic cleansing.
Czarist Russia falls. The communist revolution sweeps the country and the Soviet Union is born. North Caucasian Republic is founded. It includes Dagestan and Chechnya. It is originally supported by Communist revolutionaries.
Russian Federation takes-over the Northern Caucasus. The territory is split into Dagestan and the Ingush-Chechen Soviet Republic. The Russians send Kossack troops to subdue the Chechens, who never fully surrender. Many hide in the mountains living as herdsman in abject poverty.
Ethnic Cleansing Continues…
Feb. 1944. Communist Russia under Stalin launches more attacks against Chechens accusing them of closeness with the German Nazis. Stalin calls them ‘a suspicious people’.
Elimination of Ingush-Chechen Republic. Mass deportations of Chechens to the province of Kazhakstan take place. One and a half (1.5) million deported in cattle cars. Over 30% die.
Stalin bans Chechen alphabet, local Sufi Mullahs and leaders are executed and the practice of Sufi Islam is strictly prohibited.
1953 Soviet leader Khrushchev launches campaign of Russification, importing Russian families to take-over Chechen flat-lands.
The Rise of International Jihad
Afghanistan War (1978-1988) sees defeat of USSR and regional rise of CIA- and Saudi-sponsored Islamic Fundamentalism, led by Osama Bin Laden. Eventually, Bin Laden rejects and disassociates himself from CIA and strengthens his ties with Muslim Brotherhood.
1988. He creates Al Qeida (the ‘Base’) and declares an international holy war, ‘Jihad’ against West and all ‘enemies of Islam’.
The Fall of the Soviet Union
In light of economic slump and corruption throughout the USSR, Russian leaderGorbachev tries to reform the USSR towards a decentralized market-oriented economy. He initiates campaign of ‘glasnost’ (openness) and ‘perestroika’ (rebuilding). 1989 The Berlin wall falls.
By 1991, the Soviet Union collapses. Fourteen soviet republics break off the communist block. East European countries take their independence. Chechnya follows suite.
The Chechen National Congress is formed and led by Jokhar Dudayev (picture), Chechen national hero and Kazhakstan holocaust survivor.
Ingush-Chechnya declares its independence as a sovereign republic. http://www.cc.jyu.fi/~aphamala/pe/2003/tsets-3.htm
Chechen President Jokhar Dudayev sets up a democracy with freedom of religion and expression.
Not a single nation worldwide recognizes new Chechnyan state, including the entire Arab and Muslim world. Russia’s new president Yeltsin cuts all economic ties with new nation which collapses economically.
First Chechen War
1994 Yeltsin declares war on Chechnya. President Dudayev is killed in 1996.
By 1996 Russian army is defeated and war ends with Khazaviurt Accord which leaves issue of Chechen independence unsettled.

From Afghanistan, Bin Laden provides weapons, funds and training. Wahhabi indoctrination schools spring up.
Muslim Brotherhood front is led by Al Kattab (Saudi born commander and close associate of Bin Laden) and Shamil Basayev (Chechen radical).
An alliance is born. Its goal is to destabilize new Chechen Republic. http://www.cc.jyu.fi/~aphamala/pe/2003/tsets-4.htm
Wahhabi radical Shamil Basayev competes with mainstream Chechen leader, Aslan Maskhadov in free elections.
Basayev vs Maskhadov Chechen Fundamentalist vs Chechen Nationalist Asia Times
To Muslim Brotherhood
Chechnya holds free elections. Maskhadov beats Muslim Brotherhood’s Basayev (59% to 23%) and becomes new Chechen president. Freedom of expression and religion are instituted.
President Aslan Maskhadov openly condemns radical Islam and Jihad terrorism and seeks closer ties with the West.
Violence erupts between Muslim Brotherhood and elected Chechen government. President Maskhadov appeals to Russia and world for help against Wahhabi take-over, without success.
Basayev and the Muslim Brotherhood are forced out and find refuge in neighboring Dagestan.
THE DAGESTAN OFFENSIVE
Shamil Basayev and two thousand (2000) Muslim Brotherhood radicals attack Russia from neighbouring Dagestan claiming to be Chechen rebels. http://www.cc.jyu.fi/~aphamala/pe/2003/tsets-5.htm
The deceitful strategy works and Russian army retaliates by attacking the new Chechen Republic instead of the Muslim Brotherhood perpetrators.
Second Chechen War
***** In effect, Muslim Brotherhood forces cause Second Chechen War, which results in defeat of young democracy.
***** Yeltsin claims a ‘great victory’ on Nov. 19, 1999. Vladimir Putin is his Prime Minister at the time and is hailed as a national hero.
Muslim Brotherhood Gains Ground
Two Different Ideologies…
On Dec.31, 1999, Yeltsin resigns. Putin is elected Russian President, based on his victory over Chechnya.
Defeated and desperate, Chechnya becomes increasingly radicalized by Muslim Brotherhood, which continues to provide weapons, funds and training, calling for an international Jihad. Basayev forms the “United Front of Caucasian Mujahideen” under the Wahhabi flag.
Under pressure by radicalized Chechen rebels, Maskhadov introduces Sharia (Islamic rule) into Chechen political arena. Abuse of Chechen population by Russian army continues.
The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is against Chechen national sovereignty and in favor of including Chechnya in a broader Islamic fundamentalist empire headed by Al Qeida and ruled by Wahhabi ideology. Most Chechens disagree. http://www.cc.jyu.fi/~aphamala/pe/2004/chechen_ind.htm
Wahhabi Radicals Take-Over
Oct. 2002. Hijacking of Moscow Dubrovka Theatre by suicide bombers leaves 150 dead. Basayev (Al Qeida) claims attack.

Ex-President Maskhadov denies any involvement of his Chechen rebels and says that Basayev should be brought to trial for the Beslan atrocities. Putin accuses both Basayev and Maskhadov and places 10 million dollar bounty on their heads.
More Russian troops are sent to oppress Chechen civilians and rebels. Caught between Putin’s army and Basayev’s Wahhabi radicals, Chechen hopes for national independence and sovereignty are fading.
