Abu Bakr has a Wahabi tone. Wahabism states that all non-Muslims go to hell. The same with some extremist Scholars like Ibn Taymiya , Ibn Wahab, Ibn Baz, Uthaymeen, Albani -in a shy way-. Sayyed Kotb, who devided the world into two strata: The muslim and the Kafir...These scholars are the sourse of extreemism.

Now Wahabism thinks black or white. america too. With them or with us... Among world sad wonders is the fact that Britain and America (less Canada) have throughout the 20th century harbored people who openly defend Wahabism and in some cases (Soudi Arabia) have Wahabism as a state religion.

The reason I suspect to explain the harmony between Wahabism and Imperialism is the fact that the famous figures in both phenomena {ei mentioned scholars+ Bush (family)+ Tacher+ Francois Mitterand etc..} are: 1- illiminatory 2- narrow minded 3- not educated 4-extremist 5- exploit religious concepts for own interest..

So Wahabism in its dimension is like Americanism (the political and corporate dimension AND NOT the social or cultural dimension) . It is sad also that the great people of the United States are sometimes the victims of the misunderstanding between the husband (Wahabism) and wife (Americanism). People have the right say enough to this stupid marriage..
