Allaah سبحانه و تعالى Says in His Majestic Book:

مُّذَبْذَبِينَ بَيْنَ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ لَا إِلَىٰ هَـٰؤُلَاءِ وَلَا إِلَىٰ هَـٰؤُلَاءِ ۚ وَمَن يُضْلِلِ اللَّهُ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُ سَبِيلًا

“(They are) wavering between them, (belonging) neither to these (believers) nor to those (disbelievers). And whoever Allaah sends astray, never will you find for him a way.”  [An-Nisaa: 143]

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim رحمه الله تعالى said:

“You will find that one of them is a like a stray sheep that is wandering between two flocks, it sometimes goes with one flock and on other occasions it goes with the other; and it does not remain with either party.

They stand between two groups and they look to see which is the strongest and mightiest (of the two).”

He continues…

يتربصون الدوائر بأهل السنة والقرآن فإن كان لهم فتح من الله قالوا: ألم تكن معكم؟ وأقسموا على ذلك بالله جهد ايمانهم وان كان لأعداء الكتاب والسنة من النصرة نصيب قالوا: ألم تعلموا أن عقد الإخاء بيننا محكم وان النسب بيننا قريب؟ فيا من يريد معرفتهم ! خذ صفتهم من كلام رب العالمين فلا تحتاج بعده دليلا: 4 :141 {الَّذِينَ يَتَرَبَّصُونَ بِكُمْ فَإِنْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فَتْحٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ قَالُوا أَلَمْ نَكُنْ مَعَكُمْ وَإِنْ كَانَ لِلْكَافِرِينَ نَصِيبٌ قَالُوا أَلَمْ نَسْتَحْوِذْ عَلَيْكُمْ وَنَمْنَعْكُمْ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فَاللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَلَنْ يَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَبِيلاً}

They (the hypocrites) lay in wait to see what happens to the people of the Sunnah and the Qur’an. If Allaah was to give them (people of the Sunnah and the Qur’an) victory, they say to them, ‘Is it not that we were with you?’ And on this they swear by Allaah with their most compelling oaths.

However, if the enemies of the people of the Book and Sunnah were to achieve any kind of victory, then they say to them, ‘Do you not know that the bond of brotherhood between us is strong and through our lineage we are close?’

So whoever desires to know them, then let him take their description from the Speech of the Lord of the Worlds; and after this you will not require any other proof:

“Those (hypocrites) who wait and watch about you; if you gain a victory from Allaah, they say: “Were we not with you?” But if the disbelievers gain a success, they say (to them): “Did we not gain mastery over you and did we not protect you from the believers?” Allaah will judge between you (all) on the Day of Resurrection. And never will Allaah grant to the disbelievers a way (to triumph) over the believers.” [An-Nisaa’: 141]

Taken from his book ‘Madaarij As-Saalikeen‘, 9/248

May Allaah protect us from imitating the hypocrites.
