i wouldn't call someone who's head i would rip off if they don't listen to me an ally for listening to me.
Unless of course you are planning a war against a muslim state and the so called 'ally' is also a muslim state.
In which case having that ally (even if he is only your friend because you put a gun to his head) is a political necessity if you want to convice the world that you are fighting terror rather than Islam.
Correct me if I am wrong, but the only other islamic ally is Libya. A country which has been badly kicked for anti american terrorism and would probably prefer not to be kicked again.
