Al Qaeda and ISIS do not like each other. The Islamic State began in 1999 as an Iraqi organization, it is a product of Al Qaeda. ISIS was started by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The Islamic State does not follow Al Qaeda’s strategy of fighting the far enemy (the US), instead it prefers the near enemy (middle east).

The disagreement between the Islamic State and Al Qaeda is more than just a fight for power. Their rivalry involves competition for affiliates. Islamic State is far more successful in achieving its goals than Al Qaeda.

No. Al-Qaeda and Isis do not like each other. Isis is by a product of the Al Queda in Iraq which was led by al-Zarqawi before he was killed in a US airstrike. Much of the rivalry between the two involves a competition for affiliates, while both trying to spread their model and in Al Queda’s case to ensure it’s operational relevance.

The dispute between the Islamic State and Al-Queda is more than just a power struggle, it is a movement. The two organizations differ on the main enemies, strategies, schemes, and other core worries. As an outcome, the threat they pose to the United States varies as well. The Islamic State is far more successful in achieving its goals than Al Queda has been.
