History of Al-Queda

Funded by the Talibanmilitia, Al-Queda is an extremist Islamic group that was established by Osama Bin Laden in 1988. Their ideology is based on Jihadism withthe goal to drive all of Americans and American influence out of Muslim nations and create one political and religious leader that controls each of these nations.

It began as an independent organization to fight against the Soviet Union during the Afghan war, but then united with other militant Islamic groups. Al-Queda was the group behind the planning, organization, and implementation of theUnited States September 11 terrorist attacks which led to the falling of the Twin Towers in New York City and the deaths of many.

ISIS, another Islamic extremist group who has also been causal of manyAmerican and non-American attacks, were first affiliates of Al-Qaedauntil 2014 when they cut ties with each other.
