Al-Qaeda is an extremist Islamist terror organisation. It has mounted terrorist attacks on a global basis since it's foundation in 1988. Al-Qaeda has given Islam a bad reputation resulting in Islamophobia; however, most muslims reject Al-Qaeda, which has killed more Muslims than Christians.

Al-Qaeda was founded in Afghanistan in 1988 by the rich Saudi Arab Osama Bin Laden. It was part of the Mujahideen which, with CIA assistance, defeated the communist government there.
