Abdallah Azzam (1945-1987) is known to have been the mentor of Usama Ben Laden (1957-2011) and the father of the so-called “Arab Afghans”, a small number of Arab Islamists, who left their home countries to join the nascent transnational jihad incubating in Afghanistan in the early eighties.

This doctrine however is of capital importance to understand jihadism as it has evolved today.
