America’s preoccupation with starting a war with Iran ignores the reality of the Theocratic dictatorship on the other side of the Persian Gulf opposite of the nation which calls us the “Great Satan.” Saudi Arabia has a long history of purchasing Christian children as slaves from Sudan and other East African nations, oppressing all non-Islamic religious views, and enforcing the Wahhabi sect version of Sharia law. Per the news website Arabian Business on March 15, the Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, who is the religious leader of the nation shocked the Christian world with the following statement (from the article):
The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has said it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region,” following Kuwait’s moves to ban their construction.
Speaking to a delegation in Kuwait, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, stressed that since the tiny Gulf state was a part of the Arabian Peninsula, it was necessary to destroy all of the churches in the country, Arabic media have reported.
Saudi Arabia’s top cleric made the comment in view of an age-old rule that only Islam can be practiced in the region.
The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia is the highest official of religious law in the Sunni Muslim kingdom. He is also the head of the Supreme Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing of Fatwas.
American soldiers are nothing more than a necessary evil on their soil in the view of the Saudis and the various dictatorships of the region and in many cases viewed as mercenaries hired to defend Islamic interests. This call by the Grand Mufti should alarm American policy makers because it will be heard, accepted, and reverberate throughout the Arab street and encourage more violence against Christians much like what has occurred to the Copts in Egypt. Of course do not expect the American Mufti in Chief to say a word about his outrage because his silence on the eradication of Christians and Jews throughout the Muslim world has been as silent as his predecessor which allowed the wanton murder of minority religions in Afghanistan and Iraq throughout his administration.
