What do the Terrorists want? - Always the same: POWER

Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]

Submitted by Gudrun Eussner (France), Jul 26, 2005 at 17:07

1788-1791, The Army of The pirate leader Abdul-Aziz Bin Muhammad i.e. the Wahhabi movement attacked most of the Muslims who differed with their views. They waged a war of so-called Jihad against the governors and soldiers of The Islamic State (Ottomani Khilafah). Thereafter they succeedied in occupying Medinah, Kuwait, Iraq and part of Damascus ( and thousands of innocent Muslims were killed because they were Shi'a, Hanafi or followers of other Islamic Mazahib).

The irony was that those Muslims were labeled as Mushriks whilst most of the forces with the Wahhabi movement were British crusaders!).
