Post bin Laden al Qaeda has become an international fundamentalist Sunni fighting force. They are funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. They are actively fighting in Syria and Iraq. Saudi Arabia hopes to lead a Sunni confederation that would include Syria, large parts of Iraq and the Gulf states. They would control the population with sharia law as they now do within Saudi Arabia. Ultimately this will be more dangerous to Israel than Iran.
Al Qaeda need not sweat it at all. Their BFF, Barak Hussein Obama has got their back.
