Sayyid Imam, “Guiding Jihadi Action,” in Al‐Masri al‐Yaoum (3 December 2007), part 9. 59 60 25 and Sayyid Imam’s positions do not put an end to the possibility of Muslim‐on‐Muslim violence, but they place major obstacles in front of those who wish to carry out mass‐ destruction attacks against Muslims working for secular governments and foreign forces in places like Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq and Pakistan.

The third is perhaps the most complex. It involves striking a balance between striving for the general good of Muslims and the costs or evils associated with harming individual Muslims. If the collective good of Muslims can only be achieved through acts that will inflict harm on individual Muslims, such acts are permissible in Islam, they argue. Zawahiri and al‐Libi insist that those who work directly with tyrants and infidel invaders are like the tyrants and infidels themselves. Al‐Libi, in response to Sayyid Imam’s critique, quotes the earlier works of Sayyid Imam on the subject: Hasn’t Shaykh Abd‐al‐Qadir [Sayyid Imam] written about the legal status of those who aid modern tyrants, explaining who they are by saying: “By them are meant the helpers of the apostate rulers who rule by what is other that what God has reveled in many of the countries of Muslims today.
Abu Yahya al‐Libi seems to support this expansive targeting of Shi’a, but not Zawahiri. The former rejects Sayyid Imam’s admonition against inciters of sectarian strife: [The author Sayyid Imam] considers the condition of the Shiites to be merely a “religious madhhab” [school of jurisprudence]. This is an intentional suggestion, not a slip of the pen. It means one of two things. While undoubtedly he disagrees with their doctrines and considers them heretics, he does not advocate targeting them collectively unless they work directly for the invaders and tyrants.
