The confluence of recent political events across the greater Middle East and North Africa, along with an Anglo-American/Zionist hegemonic policy of “divide and conquer” making for strange bedfellows, have given rise to a nascent Salafi Crescent1, embodied and prophesied in the figure of the Sufyani, foretold in Shi‟a and Sunni prophetic traditions alike. The dream of the “Arab Spring”, or “Islamic Awakening”, which began in Tunisia in late 2010, resulted in revolutions in Egypt, Libya, and Yemen in 2011, and has manifested in various forms throughout the Arab and Islamic world, even reaching Europe and North America, will in 2012 give rise to a nightmare of apocalyptic proportions, an unprecedented bloodbath along sectarian lines resulting from the power vacuums it has produced.

King Abdullah II of Jordan in December 2004 referred to the geographical swathe in the Middle East with a Shi‟a majority, plurality, and/or central government as a “Shi‟a Crescent”, which he claimed was a threat to the region due to the new balance of power between Sunni and Shi‟a communities brought about by the 2003 US invasion of Iraq and subsequent overthrow of Saddam Hussein. My title is a play on that phrase, but whereas the “Shi‟a Crescent” proved to be a sectarian ploy for (increased) US backing of Sunni Arab dictatorships, I maintain that the Salafi Crescent is a very real and emerging threat to worldwide peace, one endangering the lives of all, Sunni and Shi‟a, Muslim and Non-Muslim.
