  Mujahideen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Mujahideen ('''&1605;&1580;&1575;&1607;&1583;&1610;&1606;'''; also transliterated as muj&257;hid&299;n, mujahedeen, mujahedin, mujahidin, mujaheddin, etc.) is a plural form of mujahid (&1605;&1580;&1575;&1607;&1583;), which literally translates from Arabic as "struggler", someone who engages in jihad, or "struggle", but is often translated as "holy warrior".
In the late twentieth century, the term "mujahideen" became popular in the media to describe various armed fighters who subscribe to Islamic ideologies, although there is not always an explicit "holy" or "warrior" meaning within the word.
However, the Mujahideen did not establish a united government, and they were in turn ousted from power by a radical splinter group known as the Taliban in 1996.

 Mujahideen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mujahideen (Arabic: مجاهدين‎, muǧāhidīn, "strugglers") is an Islamic term for Muslim "holy-warriors." Mujahid, and its plural, Mujahideen, come from the same Arabic linguistic root as jihad ("struggle").
Mujahideen is also transliterated from Arabic as mujahedeen, mujahedīn, mujahidīn, and mujaheddīn.
The term mujahideen is sometimes applied by sympathizers and regional experts to the Iraqi insurgency against the US-lead allies whose invasion destroyed Saddam Husain's baathist republic, and against the subsequent Iraqi regimes in need of allied military support, while the insurgents comprise a wide, incoherent spectrum of forces, with or without crucial Islamic ideology.

One of the more graphic cases for the mujahideen was the false jihadi al-Batal forum flagged up by qoqaznews.com, which it described as run by an Arab youth in Britain and aimed at cataloguing jihadi users' identities (Terrorism Focus, November 30, 2004).

 Black Op Mujahideen Shura Council Declares Islamic State in Iraq
The precisely timed statement was devised, with western intelligence connivance, not only to “stir up hatred between the Sunnis and the Shiites,”; but break the country into three pieces based on ethnic and religious affiliation, a plan formulated in Israel, adopted by the neocons, and approved by the bankster global elite.
The Mujahideen Shura Council has declared the establishment of the “Islamist Republic of Iraq,” consisting of “six central Iraqi provinces, including Baghdad and several districts of two southern Iraqi provinces,” according to NewsLab.
Naturally, the Mujahideen Shura Council—read, “al-Qaeda”—declaration of an Islamic state underscores the threat of “collusion” and, as well, maintains the neocon assertion that Iraq is the frontline of the generational war against terrorism.
