Dear Robert.

Before elaboration on ideology... (and affinity with Islamism [or even with Muhammad - who Muslims consider to be a prophet] among Arab nationalists).

The conflict since the 1880s against the 'other', especially after 1917 (Balfour) was always against the 'other' Among them. The group which is neither Arab nor Muslim.

Then came the humiliating defeats 48/67 which only enraged even more.
