There is no notion of nation to these Islamists

in response to reader comment: Global Islamic 'Nation' or Legitimate Arab 'Nations'

Well said, Joe. The "peace in Islam" comes when Islam rules over all nations. Nationalism and patriotism to one's country cannot exist. This ideology is blatantly displayed in the Koran. Just read it. One doesn't need a host of historians or scholars to tell you what it means. It's directly from Allah to you (per the prophet) but maybe only Infidels can see it.

The muslim radicals do not try to hide it. They come right out and say what their intentions are but they are viewed as a tiny band of extremist who have hijacked a religion by most Western leaders and this is reinforced by so called "moderate" muslim institutions like CAIR. However, what tremendous surge from the so called "moderate muslims' to obliterate this ideology do we see?

Perhaps the Saudis do not like the overt display of Islamic Jihad and prefer the more subtle form of sabotaging Western and American ideals as exemplified by the Freedom Foundation's examples before the U.S. Congress in September 2005? Are they also part of the Global Islamic Nation which view the Iranian form of jiahd too "adventurous?" It seems to me they are more against the means but not necessarily against the end: Global Islam.
