Of course that mix doesn’t stop there as Muslim sects are interspersed throughout the Muslim world that is the Middle East. Ideological extremism is the foundation for the radicalized behavior among the population.
While many Muslims may want to pursue peaceful lives, a huge number want to win a war that results in their sect dominating their world and more.
Now, the story here is that Iraq has a new al Qaeda leader, a 27 year old Shaker Wahiyib al-Fahdawi. He is shown in this Clarion Project report as he assassinates Syrian truck drivers who are determined to be Shiites.
As the U.S. President Obama weighs his options, and Congress and American people debate the matter, understand the following:
- America has already stepped into this inter-Muslim conflict before in Iraq and Afghanistan without decisive mediation.
- Inter-Muslim conflict is rampant in the Middle East and non Muslims including Christians and Jews are a small minority among them.
- Muslim culture seems to have far more accommodation for governments, tribes, and sects to be armed with weapons of mass destruction including chemical and biological warfare.
- Left alone without confrontrontation and mitigation by the free world, the radicalized sects and peoples of various organizations will spoil peace and harmony wherever there are borders and boundaries.
Who doesn’t believe that?
“Al Qaeda's Most Wanted Terrorist in Iraq - Cunning & Dangerous
An Iraqi general said the terrorist who brazenly killed the Syrian truck drivers is one of the most dangerous Al Qaeda figures alive today.

Shaker Wahiyib al-Fahdawi, Al Qaeda in Iraq, pictured moments before he executed three Syrian truck drivers for the 'crime' of being Shiite.
Famous for his cruelty and targeted attacks on Shiites, Al Qaeda’s former leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, served in that position until he was killed in a US air strike in 2006.
Now, seven years after his death, terror in the country has a new face, that of 27-year-old Iraqi Shaker Wahiyib al-Fahdawi.
Fahdawi rose to notoriety after a video recently emerged depicting the July 2 execution of three Syrian truck drivers on a highway in western Iraq. In the footage, Fahdawi is seen with his face unmasked as he interrogates the three men about their religious background. Once the drivers are identified as Alawites, a branch of Shiite Islam, they are made to kneel down and are shot at close range.
