Abstract

This paper shall examine the basic ideological tenets of the Salafist jihadist organization Jabhat al-Nusra, a militant oppositional group active in Syria during the Syrian Civil War and also in Lebanon, as expressed in Al-Ri-salah magazine, its official publication. Jabhat al-Nusra attempts to differentiate itself from the extremism of the Islamic State and to present itself as the rightful descendant of the jihadist tradition of al-Qaeda.
