He’s right in his twisted sense of religion. The freedom of thought, speech and belief can be very dangerous indeed. Keep them in the dark. It’s much easier to get the people to blow themselves up in the name of allah.
Another fine example of Islam, the religion of peace.
5 of the world’s 10 richest people were in the middle east. Many of the terrorist leaders are billionaires.
Those on the top of the heap want to stay on the top of the heap.
Those in poverty and uneducated are not so put upon by the West. The money and resources are there. The neo-gods of Osama and Arafat had billions. They kept of from “their” people and promised them 72 sexy virgins in return for killing the kufir along with themselves.
Hussein had something like 28 palaces and was building a billion dollar mosque in the shape of his thumbprint. There was no need to sell more “oil for food”. The money was there. Saddam used the money to bribe France, Germany, and Russia into silence.
