Ummah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ummah is an Arabic word meaning "nation" or "community". It is distinguished from Sha'b which means a nation with common ancestry or geography.

that 'open letter' to IS-ISIS by Muslim Scholars is at most just an academic exercise...pretty much useless
what these Scholars should be doing next, would be to get real Islamic Authority to condemn the IS-ISIS action, perhaps the Top Clerics from each sect of Islam and the traditional Authority ...the Grand Mufti in Egypt
The letter’s authors include well-known religious and scholarly figures in the Muslim world, including Sheikh Shawqi Allam, the grand mufti of Egypt, and Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, the mufti of Jerusalem and All Palestine.

Feel free to address my actual reply - which was in fact on topic.
Your statement I "would never be happy" was an insult. Thats why I didn't reply to it.
Otherwise, I stand behind what I have said so far in this thread.

solid statement of intentions
Intentions ? From the moderate muslim community...? And those intentions are ? writing more angry letters ?
a legitimate Jihad
Legitimacy is drawn from the same book the ISIS draws theirs.
