Wow! Long but for the Avg. Jo like me this was a great history lesson and answered many questions in my mind.

If this is an innaccurate account of Muslim history please speak up.

It has given me the big picture historically speaking and my knowledge of history education started here at FR in 1998.

This may be a dumb question, but what exactly is a caliphate?

Patriotic Democrats are about as common as moderate Muslims. The Left in this nation has our national destruction as one of its' core principles.

There is no doubt Islam seeks world domination. I was watching a documentary on Sundance the other day called War and Peace (Jang Aur Aman) and it showed a man holding up a world map on which each country was painted red and labeled Muslim(or Islam) - yes, including the United States. Apparently this is a popular wall hanging in Muslim households. And they are Nuke crazy. In addition to allah, they worship the Nuclear bomb. They're totally insane.

General thrust of militant Islam seems about right, but some numbers are wrong, IIRC. There are about 5 million Muslims in France which has a total population of 60 million, ~ 8.3%. Fifteen of the Sept. 11 plot came from Saudi Arabia. The other four were Egyptians.

India and Europe will be seen as targets to be occuppied.

"It is this Wahhabi version of Islam which has infected the religion itself, now finding adherents in almost all branches and sects, especially the Shiites" This part of it (at least) is complete crap - - Wahhabism and Shiaism are diametrically opposed. Orthodox wahabbis regard Shiism as apostasy and therefore a capital offence. Wahabbism was certainly not intitially a political movement and has had no effect on those Muslim countries which formed the heart of the Ottoman empire. It has however been successful in the poorer countries which have been susceptible to Al Saud money - Afghanistan, Sudan, Pakistan. The majority of muslims look on the Wahabi as we look on Jehovah's witnesses. The difference being that Jehovah's witnesses don't have millions to spend and a motivation to kill everything that doesn't agree with them (unless there is something that they are not telling us)

There is a very simple solution to all this. Disconnect the mullahs from their oil revenues.

Are we supporting the war on Terror by buying foreign oil ?

Are we giving the money to the terrorists the cash to kill us by using their oil ?
