Some scholars—like Romain Caillet, on this site—have argued that the 
split between al-Qaeda and the Iraqi jihadis was formalized already in 
2006, when the Iraqi al-Qaeda wing merged into an alliance of Islamist

passed through another short-lived alliance, called Hilf al-Mutayyebin, 
before being finally be subsumed into the new Islamic State of Iraq (ISI).
