In the last two months, Sunni extremists spread terror across the Middle East and Africa. On June 29, 2014, the Islamic State self-proclaimed its caliphate. After one year, in correspondence to the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, the organization called its supporters to escalate violence. On June 26, the same day of IS attacks, and exactly 5 years after the 2010 Ramadan offensive against the African Union, Al Shabaab assaulted an AMISOM military base in Somalia. Last, but not least, Boko Haram disseminated panic in the Chadian capital. In the following exclusive article, EPOS analyst Lorenzo Siggillino focuses on the issue of Sunni terrorism, highlighting the causes and the effects of it from a political and social point of view

The incident took place within five months of the killing of Osama bin Laden, the chief of Al Qaeda, in the Pakistani city of Abbotabad in May this year. While the killing of bin Laden weakened the organization as a whole, the killing of al-Awlaki will definitely weaken the organization in Arab world.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, one of the world's only theocratic governments ruled by clerics, is undergoing a major crisis of legitimacy .As thousands of Iranians braved state police in the streets of Tehran and other major cities, the Islamist state now faces considerable resistance from many oppositional factions, who see the elections as fraudulent and the ruling clerics as morally corrupt. Amid such crisis, one unlikely faction that has emerged to confront the regime is the Shia Islamic leadership based in the shrine-city of Qom.
