There is no concept of country in Islam, in Islam there is only Quam that one should fight for. One of the reasons in mind is that Muslims are spread all over the world in all countries, and fighting for a country would mean fighting against some Muslims at least. Moreover, fighting for a non-Muslim country is worse. If you don't agree. please provide proof from Qur'an or Hadees to disprove this concept.
Wassalam,
Khalid

Dear brother in Islam,
Wa'laikumus-Salam

Sorry Brother, We do not know where this text has been taken from.
As for the concept of country, in Islam, is concerned I know that no doubt concept of country is found in Islam. Division of Dar (that is country) into two categories, Darul Islam and Darul-Kufr (Muslim country and Non-Muslim country) may be enough proof to be cited.
We also know that in a Muslim Country the person deployed on the line of control (Boundary or Sarhad) for the safeguard of country, is called Muraabit in Arabic and his action is marked as Ribaat which is a great work of virtue as per the words of The Prophet Sal-Lal-Laahu Alaihi Wasallam

Thanking You
