#2 AQIM has the weapons, the backing, and the fanatics.

Therein lies the problem.

#3 They'll eliminate the moderate Muslims just like the Jews, Christians and Buddhists.

#4 This isn't actually about ideological enemies because the graves of some members of Mohammud's own family have been similarly destroyed in Medina beginning in the early 19th century.

The issue is that Wahabis believe that preserving historic sites connected with Moslems, even great Muslim saints, scholars and warriors, leads inevitably to veneration of the site which, in turn means that something other than Allah is being worshiped. This is based on a hadith in which a dying Mohammud declares that the reason (or a reason) to curse the Jews and Christians is their practice of building places to worship at the site of the graves of saints and scholars.
