Our ‘good friends’ the Saudis have a leading and influential voice calling for all churches in the Gulf states to be destroyed.
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.
Imagine what would happen if some important American cleric declared that all mosques in the country be destroyed… oh the (rightful) outrage that would descend from every corner. Yet let a Saudi Sheikh say that churches should be destroyed and all of Islam is silent. That says everything about the ‘religion of peace’ that needs to be said. (HT George Athas on FB).
