Leader of Al Qaeda organization, Dr. Ayman al Zawahiri states;

“My free and honorable brothers who are eager to help Islam and liberate Palestine:

We must read history and comprehend its lessons. Palestine was lost when the Caliphate fell and we were dominated by secularism and territorial nationalism which has torn us apart and continues to tear us apart. One of the fundamental interests of the West and the Zionists, and indeed, one of the necessities of their existence, is that they divide us, by spreading the principles of the secular nationalist nation state and homeland among us, so that we become crumbs which they can easily devour.

As a result of that ethnic and territorial nationalism, we broke apart after the fall of the Caliphate State into more than fifty helpless vassal states.”
