The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of Politics of Fear

In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares. The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares. In a new series, the Power of Nightmares explores how the idea that we are threatened by a hidden and organised terrorist network is an illusion.

Do u think sayyed qutub's thoughts are similar to bin ladin's?

Sayyed Qutub's theories were interpreted even more-radically by Zawahri who later on became the mentor of Bin Laden. So while essentially, they both condemn the state of the Islamic world in general, Zawahri believes that every single citizen is responsible and can be killed. While Qutub had a less radical view and blamed the politicians.
