Abdul Majid al-Zindani
Abdul Majid al-Zindani is a Yemenite radical Islamist cleric with ties to al-Qaeda, who had been believed one of the most powerful radicals in Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula  but may be losing influence to the younger Anwar al-Awlaki.
While the U.S. and U.K. designated him a terrace, in 2007, a Sultan al-Barakani, chairman of the ruling General People's Congress Caucus, said that the U.S. government had failed to send the Yemeni government information incriminating al-Zindani in terrorism, stating that, "we don't have any evidence that Sheikh al-Zindani was involved with al-Qaeda"
