Abu Yahya al-Libi, a senior Al-Qa'ida Central (AQC) leader based in Pakistan-Afghanistan who is often referred to as the group's mufti (chief jurist), has penned a new book, Jihad and the Battle of Uncertainty/Vagueness/Doubt, الجهاد و معركة الشبهات . The 45-page book was published by the Al-Fajr (Dawn) Media Center, a shadowy transnational jihadi-takfiri media outlet that distributes all the visual, audio, and written media productions of AQC and its two main affiliates, Al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) in North and Northwest Africa and Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) based in Yemen. Al-Libi's last major written piece was the essay, "(Banu) Qurayza and America: A Hotbed of Suspicion and Treachery" released by Al-Fajr in late April, which I wrote about at some length HERE.
