This study attempts to shed light on “Abu Musab Al-Suri”, one of the most prominent theorists of the jihadist movement in the Islamic world, in addition to a brief account of his personal life, monitoring his intellectual output, and analyzing his theories in support of “jihad” and developing it in his book, “Calling the International Islamic Resistance” by creating a hybrid model from resistance and structural organization methods and new methods and less hierarchical organizations. The study adopts the descriptive and analytical methodology based on two determinants: the first is observation of the reality in which the intellectual and “strategic experiences of “Abu Musab al-Suri” were formed; and then analyzing his intellectual achievement and theories of resistance in light of the experiences available to him and the influences that formulated them.
