Egypt's secular, military leaders have been struggling with the Muslim Brotherhood since the 1920s. They have tried arresting leaders, invoked emergency powers to stop popular demonstrations and banned members of "the Brothers" from standing in elections. President Hosni Mubarak's dictatorship remains in power in Egypt but militant Islam remains one of the most clear and present dangers to his rule.

The Saudi royal family might follow the conservative form of Islam known as Wahabism but the real strength of the regime stems from extensive interwoven family ties and their traditional links. Jihadist groups like al-Qa'eda represent as big a threat to this clan-based network of elites as they do to America and while Hamas and al-Qa'eda do not share the same jihadist ideology, the Saudi leadership is acutely wary of a mass movement such as Hamas that is motivated by Islam.

Extreme Islam, which comes from the ultra religious portion of Islam is truly the enemy of everyone.

Extreme, fundamental Islam brings absolute misery everywhere it goes, incites the extreme Islam under which all these crimes against humanity are committed, and truly, is a war on mankind.

It's the intolerance of Islam, and strict interpretation by fundamentalists Imams.

And it's a war on mankind that has lain dormant for some thirteen hundred years, but is once again rearing its ugly head.

When other Arab nations have let them come into their countries, the Palestinians have immediately set about trying to take over their new homes governments.

They serve better as a bumper than a brother.
