Be Fire with Fire

Imperialists are obviously not up to the task when it comes to fighting al Qaeda and its ilk. Nor are international leftists, no matter how many tracts against imperialism and Islamism they publish. I suggest that, more often than not, it takes a mass Islamist organization to liquidate terrorist Islamist cells and neutralize international Islamist jihads: Avi Issacharoff, "Hamas: We Killed Head of Al-Qaida Affiliate in Gaza" (Haaretz, 15 August 2009). "Be stirring as the time; be fire with fire." -- Shakespeare, The Life and Death of King John, Act 5, Scene 1

One, the threat of Al Qaeda as something unified and capable is largely the result of US propaganda.

Two, this Hamas vs. AQ or Sunni Resistance vs. AQ stuff is also largely the creation of the US and all its propaganda purposes.

Any sort of united Islam that is anti-US scares the shit out of the Americans. Just as it did the British, who spent so many years helping to create forms of Wahabbism and Deobandism that they could manipulate.
