AFAIK, Mohammed never appointed a succesor or provided directions over who was to lead his religion or clarify points of doubt after his death.

Thus no Muslim has through reasons of location or bloodline any greater claim to posess the "true Islam" than any other.
True, although the moment Mohammed died is the moment it started splintering in various directions. The original splinter is still with us today in the conflict between Sunnis and Shiites.

So are we to jump into this fray now, over a thousand years later, to make a case with the House of Saud that they shouldn't be there? What is the point? And how does that translate into anything useful today?
