Will Moslem nations ever unite? Who would lead them?

The late Abdul Nasser had a dream ... to unite all Arab nations. Since then, there has been no successful effort to unite Arab countries. They remain divided due to factional fighting based on religion. Of course, since Osama Bin Laden, there seems to be a greater movement towards uniting Moslem nations, but again, it is the sectarian, factional infighting that has prevented this from taking place.

Is there a credible movement within Moslem nations to unite? Can the different Moslem sects actually set aside their differences to unify and solidify their "Muslem nation" against the Israel or the West? What Arab/Iranian/Afghani leader is there that can unify these nations under the banner of Islam? Or will these individual countries, these individual sects continue their sectarian squabbling and thus keep them from being a viable collective threat against the West?

There isn't a leader of Nasser's calibre in the Middle East for those nations to gather around. Would that there was, stability in the region might be enhanced and not require outside intervention. No, all too many of the leaders in the region would only to gladly slit the throat of his counterpart who even looked to be gaining that sort of sway in the region.
Perhaps if democracy catches on in Iraq, and it looks promising at the moment, and in Lebanon; a leader might emerge. Hope so, the region has a lot to offer, not just oil, and terrorism. It should have the oppourtunity to show that.

no the muslim nations will never unite in some sort of super allince. you just gotta look at iraq. they all muslims, but they cant even get it together to make a single country, let alone unite 50. there is just too many diffrent ideals and stuff.

Not so much a single nation, as a loose alliance based on mutual need. Much like the EU perports to be.

God forbid; if Isreal attacks Iran, you will see an Moslem alliance so fast it will make your head swim.

Alliances will form all over the globe and WWIII will be eminent.

Happy New Year!

The EU is not a "loose alliance based on mutual need"

I believe it's "it will make your head spin," not swim



But to stay on the topic, I think a Muslim alliance might be possible if there's some sort of a catalyst ... like Israel bombing Iran, or the West bombing and/or invading Iran and/or Syria, or if Western economies begin to waiver it might give Muslim nations the confidence to form some sort of an alliance.
Or then it won't happen.

However, it remains to be seen.

Strangely enough, everyone here, it seems, expect the Moslem nations to unite after a specific catalyst such as Israel bombing Iran. Israel HAS bombed Lebanon, Palestinian communities, Iranian nuke facilities in the past and, yet, these actions did not bring about a coalition of Moslem nations.

I am beginning to believe that the Moslem nations are simply unable to unite. Though these nations might be Moslem, the differences between Moslem sects; i.e., Shiites, Sunni, etc. actually prevent the Moslems from uniting.

Unlike Christian nations, where interdenominational fighting was a common factor in the past, the Moslem's have never overcome their intersectarian strife. What would cause Moslem nations to unite?

It will be a religious leader of some sort. Possibly one with links to Muhammed his own bad self. Tough to prove I suppose, but his relationship with the Prophet, and leadership ability might do it. Then its Katie bar the door, there won't be any holding them back short of war.
This seems unlikely, but who knows? It is an interesting thought though.

Israel has never bombed Iran. It was Iraq. And that was a joint operation by Israel AND Iran.
