Muslims have no Islamic state? Last time I looked, you guys had Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Mali, Niger, Eritrea, rSomalia, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Oman, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Comorros, Malaysia, and Brunei; with a preponderance of Islamic influence in Turkey, Albania, Bosnia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kygyzia, Kazakhstan, and Indonesia--possibly Senegal, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Chad, Kenya, and Nigeria as well. Oh, yes. Let's not forget Kuwait (which Americans shed a lot of blood to maintain) and the Palestinian Territories, which we spend our hard-earned tax-monies on just to watch them dance in the streets when 3,000 of us get killed.

Come to think of it, we heavily subsidized Egypt, which lambastes us a thousand times daily over the plight of the poor, poor Palestinians, when we've given passport-holding, voting rights, live-and-work-as-you-please citizenship to thousands times more victims and descendants of an-Nakhba than Egypt ever did.

If the Muslims can't do better with the vast swathe of territory they have, and all the petro dollars they rake in, there's probably something fatally wrong with Islam.
