48. How serious were these calls?
Were these serious statements by serious leadership people, and is there any evidence that hamas has done anything to follow them up. Or are they similar in nature to, say, rhetorical calls made by Bush for the globeal spread of democracy?

I ask because one of the things I'm trying to understand is which jihadist groups actually advocate attacks on the US at home or abroad.

The media and the Bushites lump them all together, of course, but far as I can tell, beyond al Qaeda, jihadists seem to be mostly focussed on attacking Israel and/or their own secular leaders, and are not actively engaged in global actions against the West.
