Here goes a Moslem religious leader making the ‘religion of peace’ look bad again: Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia: ‘It’s necessary to destroy all the churches of the region’ Of course, we know (if we dig for news a lot) that the Wahabi version of Islam used by the Saudis is very ‘conservative,’ meaning, say about 14th century in its social outlook, by our standards. Lots of Imams and Ayatollahs may well be wincing as much as we when they read of this. But if so, nobody is in any hurry to publish it, right?
And that tacit approval, even if uinintended, fuels a great deal of violence against Christians and others. As the world’s oncoming financial implosian worsens, this sort of thing can take on the aspect of a lighted match for inspecting the gasoline level. If the more responsible leaders of Islam continue to allow the extremists to proceed unrebuked, they may find themselves among the early victims of the result.
