Al-Qaeda (Arabic: القاعدة - al-Qā‘idah, "the foundation" or "the base") is the name given to an international alliance of militant Islamist organizations. Originally built from the cadre of Saudi-funded Arab fighters who flocked to join the Mujahideen resistance movement against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, it seeks to establish, via military tactics, an Islamic ideology to supplant both current regimes in the Middle East and eventually Western society as a whole.
