3. Israel's Islamic Movement: Filling the vacuum, aiming for a caliphate  [Aug. 3, 2008 brenda gazzar , THE JERUSALEM POST]
It wasn't just sermons and prayers that filled the gender-segregated soccer field in Kafr Kara on Friday night during the annual summit of the southern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel.

Thousands of devotees gathered from around the country to commemorate Muhammad's journey to "the farthest mosque" and his ascension to the heavens on a winged steed, but politics also hung heavily in the air. Children waved green Islamic flags, young women in hijabs sold large maps of "Palestine before the Nakba," the "catastrophe" of 1948, and sheikhs and politicians spoke of the need to support their Palestinian brothers in the territories, defend the Aksa Mosque and fight for equal rights as Arab citizens of Israel.

Diagnosed with a secular tumor that feeds off of a selfish, if not perverse, sense of hedonism, the civilization that has bestowed to the world all of its greatest advancements is preparing to take out its obituary.
