Who is Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and what does he really want? In a revealing article in FrontPage Magazine, Stephen Schwartz exposes the underlying focus of the Saudi Wahhabi sect of which al-Zarqawi is a member. They consider everyone but themselves, the followers of Muhammad Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, the 19th century founder of Wahhabism, as non-Muslims who have fallen away from true monotheism back into pagan unbelief. This includes all followers of Islam who have not converted to Wahhabism and members of all other religions, including Jews and Christians.
The Wahhabis fight is not for social redress or any of the motives attributed to them by the “it’s our fault’ or “can’t we just get along” crowd. Their fight is to convert or kill everyone not Wahhabi. They have no other course or option.
