NINE YEARS AGO, PHARES: "HAS THE FUTURE OF JIHAD ALREADY BEGAN?"
Eleven years ago Dr Walid Phares wrote an Op Ed in the Washington Times warning about future strategies of the Jihadists. Between 2002 and 2004 he published more pieces projecting the global expansion and urban Jihadism. In 2004 he wrote a book, published in 2005 outlining the global strategies of the global Jihadists, as they actually occurred in the following decade. Reflecting on a decade long research in the 1990s and years in the Middle East studying the phenomenon during the Cold War, Dr Walid Phares wrote: "To put it bluntly, yes, future jihads have already started. Now the United States and the international community have an opportunity to win the battle of "foresight" after they have realized in hindsight what was missed in the 1990s. By looking forward, I will attempt to analyze al Qaeda's (and other offshoots') strategic thinking with regard to future wars against the United States and its allies. There has been a fundamental misunderstanding about al Qaeda's ultimate goals. Strategic questions, such as what the jihadists want to achieve for the next decade or what al Qaeda's long-term plans are, are yet unanswered."
