Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) may be a new branch of the global terror group, but at least one of its primary aims is the same as the rest: to target the United States.
Following words from al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, a spokesperson for the new group said in a video released online this week that one of the its first goals is “waging jihad against America and the system of global disbelief that grew under its sponsorship…”
“This is the system that put upon worshipers of Allah a political system built on non-religious, democratic, secular principles, and weakened the Islamic creed and corrupted Muslim society,” the spokesperson says, according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group. “And because of this system, apostate, traitor armies were put upon the Islamic lands and the rulers hostile to Islam.”
The announcement of AQIS’s establishment came as much of the Western world was focused on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a terror group that recently split from al Qaeda’s control, went on to take over large swaths or Syria and Iraq and then declared itself the Islamic State – an apparent direct challenge to al Qaeda’s authority.
