The (Radical) Jihadi Mind Oppressed are Good; oppressors are Evil. The Good (the oppressed) are assured a predestined victory over the Evil (the oppressors). Victory in the ultimate sense will be established when Islam rules the earth and has subdued all of Allah’s enemies (the rich, oppressor nations).
Different Views of Jihadist "Strategy"
Brian Michael Jenkins - April 1, 2004 - Briefing for Army Science Board
Jihad as insurgency: control a state (or, at least portion of a state) as a safe base
Jihad as a mission: keep fighting to be worthy of Allah--only he will award victory
commitment to "strategy" is weak; political aims are opportunistic recruiting appeals

Selected history and myth (Saladin, assassins, etc.)
Yitzhak Rabin, the first native-born Prime Minister, displayed a leadership style which was candid, direct and at times unadorned to the point of bluntness.
In 1975, Rabin concluded an Agreement with Egypt, which led to Israeli withdrawal from the Suez Canal. As a result of this agreement, the first Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Israel and the United States, ensuring American support for Israeli interests in the international arena and renewed American aid.
In July 1976, the government ordered the "Entebbe Operation" for the rescue of Air France passengers hijacked by terrorists to Uganda. In this daring operation, thousands of miles from home, the hostages were released and flown to safety in Israel.
Rabin's second term as Prime Minister included two historic events - the Oslo Agreements with the Palestinians and the Treaty of Peace with Jordan. Working closely with Shimon Peres, he masterminded negotiations on the Declaration of Principles signed with the PLO at the White House in September 1993.
This won Rabin, Peres and Arafat the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize and opened negotiations with the Palestinians on autonomy in Gaza and some areas of Judea and Samaria and on the establishment of a Palestinian Authority.
On November 4, 1995, on leaving a mass rally for peace held under the slogan "Yes to Peace, No to Violence," Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.
Aum Shinrikyo (also spelled Om Shin Rikyo) was a religious group which mixed Buddhist and Hindu beliefs and was based in Japan.
It gained international notoriety in 1995, when its founder, Shōkō Asahara, and a group of followers were accused of carrying out a sarin gas attack on a Tokyo subway. Since 2000, it has been called Aleph .
