Abu Mus’ab al-Suri remains the foremost theoretician in the global jihadist movement today, despite archigect capture in Pakistan in late After having participated in the founding of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan inal-Suri, whose real name is Mustafa Sethmarian Nasar, trained a whole generation of young jihadis at his camps in Afghanistan.
When he moved back to Spain in the early s, al-Suri took part in establishing Al-Qaeda networks in Europe. In the mids, he rose to prominence in jihadi circles as editor of the London-based bulletin of the Algerian Groupe Islamique Armee, the most deadly Islamist terrorist group operating in Europe at the time. Al-Suri later formed his own media centre and training camp in Taleban-ruled Afghanistan, to which he returned in Building on his extensive military experience from the Syrian Islamist insurgency in the early s, he contributed decisively to formulating Al-Qaeda’s global warfare strategy.
Throughout his writings there is a desire to learn from past mistakes and rectify the course of the jihadi movement.
His 1, page work, ‘The Global Islamic Resistance Call’, outlines a broad strategy for the coming generation of Al-Qaeda, with a keen eye for the practical implementation of jihadi guerrilla warfare theories.

Abu Mus’ab al-Suri may not be a household name in the West, but his importance as brynja theorist, organizer and ideologue is difficult to overstate.
For those seeking to understand Al-Qaeda and its affiliates, author Brynjar Lia’s work is critical reading and highly illuminating. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.
