Muslim allegiance to God or Islam?

"the essential tragedy of the modern Islamic world is the degree to which Muslims, instead of giving their allegiance to God, have been giving it to something called Islam."

Do you know anything at all about Shiism mojo, or is that just an ethnic identification for you.

They have something about some Husayn ibn Ali being killed somewhere or something.

Anonymous, I think Wilfred Cantwell Smith was referring to the Muslims who kill for the "Islamic cause" instead of doing good deeds for God. Those Muslims who kill innocents in the name of Islam apparently have no idea that God will no doubt send them to the Fire, as Dolly likes to say.
