Ahmadinejad is not the power in Iran.. He's the mouthpiece. If he were the power, we would have resolved this mess. I wouldn't compare him to Hitler.. Bush did that with Saddam Hussein..
Amhad...may not be the power, but the Mullah's either approve of his words, or they are scared of him. Either way it makes him dangerous when he talks of wiping out Israel. As for Godwining the thread, I am not trying to do that, but we must not be afraid to make the comparison especially when the people he wants to wipe out are one in the same.
The point is that the goal of caliphate in not dead, just not realized by the right person. And when that day comes, it could very well be a horrible outcome, no?Oh I don't really know.. The last attempt was 1924.. I think it lasted two weeks. There were some small ones in Yemen and I believe in Sudan, but they had absolutely no clout in the Arab world.
Don't these different sects work together when the situation calls for it?The Arab states all have their own interests and priorities.. there will never be another Caliphate unless its an honorarium.. and that is doubtful.. There are just too many different sects in Islam.
