He was companion of desk and cell Zawahiri Ayman the , the Egyptian surgeon who from his lair Pakistan or Afghanistan is now to heal the wounds of Al Qaeda beaten by the irruption of calling itself the State Islmico . Comrade Kamal Habib is an old glory of the firmament of Egyptian jihadists . He co-founded ISLAMIC Jihad, the organization in 1981 Urdi the assassination of then president Anwar Sadat, and expi their guilt during a decade long prison ordeal. Reluctant to dust off the slab of his past, Habib claims to have survived the suicide dreams of youth . Today, rehabilitated but installed in the Salafi (Muslim is rigorismo), is an avid observer of the new generation who stars in the global jihad. “To understand what represents the IS must be very close to his psychologist. Just as understand how they can turn ordinary people into jihadists “ warns in the prelude to the interview with the world. “The Daesh [acronym in rabe Islmico State] is the reaction of young people who saw what happened in Afghanistan and Iraq. are, in their way, a parallel anarchist groups movement Europe . they consider themselves as a way of protest against the oppression suffered by Muslims after the attacks of George W. Bush and the ravages of imperialism in Palestine “argues Habib from the living room of his apartment, lost in an area residential of cairota suburbs to which an has not reached the pavement and the street lighting.
it is already dark when, rosary in hand and between sips of tea, Habib circumvents the questions that pry into that little in the I rubbed shoulders with Al Zawahiri. “Most of our perteneca to the middle class or upper middle generation. From children educated us so that we abriramos step in a conventional society but we did what our parents soaban” confessed in some occasion. When shooed back to those years in the trenches, he was surprised to have invincible credo. “All jihadi fantasize thinking that are more powerful than they really are. The IS has reached the cspide of the maximum . Its members believe they are fabulous and have mgicos powers. The attacks that have struck Europe estn perpetrated by a handful of young people who felt strong ms States where they live, “says the convert, who -after to slam his life above doctorate in political science with a thesis on political parties and Islam in Turkey.
“it is true that he admits Habib- ‘Daesh’ is the son of Al Qaeda but it is a much more retoo violent and bloody than his father. Al Qaeda has a mature leader like Al Zawahiri, who bases his decisions in reality and experience. the iS is the opposite. Est luring more young people with ensoaciones and false offers of happiness, social justice and order diseadas ‘ad hoc’ for little orphan lives of direction and expectations “.

“Neither Al Qaeda nor the IS understand Islam”
“The first generation of jihadists -enumera- was born in Afghanistan. It was invented by the US to deal with the Soviets. The second surgi after the US onslaught in Afghanistan and Iraq and the third generation is that of iS. All grew because Washington tom the decision of not caring East Prximo and letting that regional enemies disemboweled believing that their consequences will not reach the West as is happening now. ” In any case, according to Habib, the battalions that now parade through the confines of the caliphate or live cowering in their European burrows are “better prepared and more capable offspring has learned from the mistakes committed by the most veteran comrades.” “Neither Al Qaeda nor the IS understand Islam. They interpret their convenience but at least the leaders of Al Qaeda have studied the religion of the hand of respected sheikhs and are not, as the IS, young people who ms lack the slightest notion of religion, “says the professor, who emphasizes the presence of the old guard of Saddam Hussein in the lite surrounding the self-proclaimed caliph Abu Bakr al Baghdad i. “They were -reconoce- officers iraques intelligence services and, to enlist in the IS, they took with them the brutal methods and sdicos the Saddam regime.”
Despite the insistence of the journalist, Habib does not relax the red lines that has drawn around his biography. Rehsa even provide its formula to quell the terror that threatens the streets of the old continent. “How to kill them? Pregntele better their leaders. I think there ningn neither the government nor the german british espaol- nor willing to declare war on IS and I doubt they want to defeat him. The non-European countries estn together. Their politicians are not serious and forceful “. When the conversation and the struggle decays, Habib, who once so change the planet to blow a “misunderstood jihad” – mutters. “The aclitos the ‘Daesh’ an unbeatable considered because the world has failed to finish them fantasize still with the idea of conquering Al Andalus, spread their Revelation of death and destruction and believe they are the hands of Al handing justice and caresses the victory. they may live a few more years but have no future. they will be cut dead when the governments of Europe and East Prximo want it. “
