Onward Muslim soldiers

BBC:

US and Iraqi officials have given a cautious welcome to a Saudi proposal for a new military force drawn exclusively from Muslim countries.

US Secretary of State Colin Powell described the idea as interesting.

Meanwhile Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi called on the leaders of Arab countries to close ranks to help Iraq.

A number of Islamic nations have been approached and further discussions will be held, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal has said.

This could raise an interesting dilemma for the kidnapping strategy of the terrorist. Cutting Muslim throats is not likely to build support in the Muslim community. The proper reaction to the kidnappings is for the countries involved to increase their support for Iraq. Making the kidnapping counter productive will stop it quicker.
