So we have Jabhat-un-Nusrah in Shaam and unexpectedly, they separated themselves from al-Qaa’idah and likewise, DAA’ISH also separated from al-Qaa’idah. Jabhat-un-Nusrah (then) splintered off from DAA’ISH. The mother is al-Qaa’idah and the daughters are DAA’ISH and Jabhat-un-Nusrah. Their ‘Aqeedah is one: revolting against the rulers, making takfeer of the rulers, disregarding or nullifying the allegiance to the Muslim rulers and distancing themselves from the general population of the Muslims. [According to the Arabic proverb] “How similar tonight is to yesterday.”
How similar the Khawaarij of today are to those of old who revolted against the Sahaabah. They made takfeer of ‘Ali (عنهرضي اللّه), nullified their allegiance to him and isolated themselves from the general population of the Muslims. They went to an area called Haroorah and due to this they were named al-Harooriyyah.

An excerpt taken from the article ~
It has also come in their description that they kill the people of Islaam and leave the people of idolatry. These are from the most obvious signs of these people and if an individual were to look at their history, he would find that they only kill Ahl Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah yet make allegiances with Jews, Christians and people of misguidance and distortions in order to kill Ahl Sunnah, just as ‘Abdullah bin Saba` did with the Khawaarij who revolted against ‘Uthmaan. They hate Ahl Sunnah and deem their blood as lawful. It has been narrated that one of them killed a pig belonging to a non-Muslim under Muslim rule and then paid him the price of the pig. However, concerning the people of Islaam in Basrah, they declared their blood as lawful until the Euphrates became tinted with red from the blood that these (Khawaarij) spilled when they revolted in Basrah.
