    my question is who on earth in all of Islam could try and claim right as the Caliph. The Muslim people won't accept just anyone. There hasnt been a Caliph in nearly 500-1000 years. (Not sure exactly when i just know its been a while). Even then there were multiple caliphs claiming the same authority.

    I just find it hard to believe any one could try to rebuild that unless it was God's will. And I don't think God supports Islam like that.

    1257 I believe. The Mongols sacked Baghdad, and executed the Caliph by trampling him to death with their horses. I don't imagine they'd be too picky regarding his sucessor. Anyone with the mindset of bin Laden or Ahmadinejad will do. As long as they convert/slay/tax the infidels.
