Communists had one thousand times as many soldiers with ten thousand times as many guns. They had a vast military as well as an ideological commitment to overthrowing enemy governments from within vs. no meaningful military but an ideological preference for military conquest and disdain for internal dissent. Al Qaeda has no propaganda line like "workers of the world, unite" and it doesn't want one - all it wants is to recruit Sunni Muslims within a narrow range of belief to engage in acts of sabotage (as they see it) in preparation for another wave of Islamic conquest that won't ever actually happen.
