Arab League agrees to combat Islamic State group
"The Arab League agreed Monday to combat extremists like the Islamic State group as one of its suicide bombers killed 16 people at a meeting of Sunni tribal fighters and security troops in Iraq."
They can dish it out, but they can't take it.


The trend of breakaway Islamists
"Arab tribes have been fighting and allying with each other for centuries. And tribes also tend to unite against an invasion by outsiders."
'Lee Smith uses this statement by bin Laden in his book, The Strong Horse: Power, Politics, and the Clash of Arab Civilizations, explaining, “The wars waged between Arabs according to the strong horse principle make the Arabic-speaking peoples of the Middle East a much graver threat to themselves than they are to anyone else.'”
That could explain the new Egyptian leader's crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood.
