This trait in leaders is stated in the following verse: No one had belief in Moses except for a few of his people out of fear that Pharaoh, and the elders, would persecute them. Pharaoh was high and mighty in the 37 38 THE ALLIANCE OF THE GOOD land. He was one of the profligate. (Surah Yunus: 83) The masterminds of this evil alliance and those directing it are actually those leaders who have influence over the masses. Coming together, these leaders ally against the good; and scheme to defeat them or to render them ineffective.

As is evident in this example, the alliance of the evil always focuses its efforts on inciting the evil against the good. God, in the Qur'an, relates the following about such people who spread rumours about the good: If the hypocrites and those with sickness in their hearts and the rumour-mongers in Madina do not desist, We The Intricacies of the Evil's Alliance will set you onto them. Then they can only be your neighbours there a very short time. (Surat al-Ahzab: 60) Another method the evil have employed for thousands of years to such an end has been to coax the good into a conflict against their brothers and friends.

Surat al-Qasas: 20) So Pharaoh went away and concocted his scheme and then he arrived. (Surah Ta ha: 60) As these verses also state, the leaders of the evil ones gather and take decisions against the good, and enhance their alliance by bringing together those whom they hope to use against the good. Throughout history, those following the evil alliance, either out of fear, timidity or by being impressed by its power, followed the leaders of the evil. For instance, those who were ruthless enough to massacre millions of innocent people under the command of leaders like the Pharaoh, Mao, Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot, or those who joined terrorist groups and killed people, would also maintain that they committed such acts because they feared the cruelty of their leaders or were impressed by their power.
