The Rise of ISIS: Where it All Began By: Mariama Diallo
when we, the Mujahideen, were fighting against the Soviet union, who were invading Afghanistan
We were funded and aided by the U.S. They gave us money and weapons to fight.
Among the Mujahodeen, was Osama bin Laden (Leader of Al-Queda) and Al-Zarqawi
I, Osama bin Laden, am the leader of Al-queda who was born into a rich family. I will be the leader of the group behind the 9/11 attack
I, Al-Zarqawi, am the leader of Isis. I will soon be a very powerful force for other countries to be afraid of.Bin Laden and I will almost never get along because we will have different goals for the Islamic countries.
Its ironic because two people who wanted good for Islamic countries, accomplished their goals in very forceful ways. That is how it all BEGAN.
