Sunni-Shiite conflict spreading beyond Iraq?

Thanks to Juan Cole, a link to an ominous story in the Daily Times (Pakistan) which states that prominent Saudi Wahhabi clerics are calling on

Sunni Muslims around the world to mobilise against Shiites in Iraq, although a statement they issued fell short of calling for a jihad, or holy war.

How far short?

There have been recent stories in the international press about truck drivers admitting to carrying large shipments of money from Saudi Arabia to Sunni insurgents in Iraq.
