Al-Qaeda's Goal of al Khalifa

EXCELLENT ANALYSIS OF THE LONG-TERM AL-QAEDA GOAL OF RE-INSTALLING THE ISLAMIC CALIPHATE...

"Last held by the Ottoman Prince abdul Mejid II, the Caliphate has been empty since its abolishment in 1924. Caliphate (khalifa) literally means "Successor of the Prophet", but the position of primary Caliphate is that of ruler of a unified Islamic nation. It is the goal of Al-Qaeda and the various terrorist organizations working either under the umbrella of Al-Qaeda or in concert with it to fill this void. And if Al-Qaeda has their way, the position will be filled by a Wahabbi Caliphate, Osama bin Laden."
