Saudi Grand Mufti Calls for "Destruction of All Churches in Region"
jihadwatch.org ^ | 14MAR12 | Raymond Ibrahim

Posted on 03/15/2012 6:10:24 AM PDT by bayouranger

According to several Arabic news sources, last Monday, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.”

The Grand Mufti made his assertion in response to a question posed by a delegation from Kuwait, regarding the position of a Kuwaiti parliament member who recently called for the "removal" of churches (he later “clarified” by saying he merely meant that no churches should be built in Kuwait). The Kuwaiti delegation wanted to confirm Sharia’s position on churches.

Accordingly, the Grand Mufti “stressed that Kuwait was a part of the Arabian Peninsula, and therefore it is necessary to destroy all churches in it.”

As with many grand muftis before him, the Sheikh based his proclamation on the famous tradition, or hadith, wherein the prophet of Islam declared on his deathbed that “There are not to be two religions in the [Arabian] Peninsula,” which has always been interpreted to mean that only Islam can be practiced in the region.

While the facts of this account speak for themselves, consider further:

Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah is not just some random Muslim hating on churches. He is the Grand Mufti of the nation that brought Islam to the world. Moreover, he is the President of the Supreme Council of Ulema [Islamic scholars] and Chairman of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing of Fatwas. Accordingly, when it comes to what Islam teaches, his words are immensely authoritative.

Considering the hysteria that besets the West whenever non-authoritative individuals offend Islam—for instance, a fringe, unknown pastor—imagine what would happen if a Christian counterpart to the Grand Mufti, say the Pope, were to declare that all mosques in Italy must be destroyed; imagine the nonstop Western media frenzy that would erupt, all the shrill screams of "intolerance" and "bigot," demands for apologies if not resignation, nonstop handwringing by sensitive politicians, and worse.

Yet the Grand Mufti—the highest Islamic law authority of our "friend-and-ally" Saudi Arabia—gets a free pass when he incites Muslims to destroy churches, not that any extra incitement is needed (nary a month goes by without several churches being bombed and destroyed throughout the Islamic world). In fact, at the time of this writing, I have not seen this story, already some three days old, translated on any English news source, though "newsworthy" stories are often translated in mere hours.

Likewise, consider the significance of the Grand Mufti's rationale for destroying churches: it is simply based on a hadith. But when non-Muslims evoke hadiths—this one or the countless others that incite violence and intolerance against the "infidel"—they are accused of being "Islamophobes," of intentionally slandering and misrepresenting Islam, of being obstacles on the road to "dialogue," and so forth.

Which leads to perhaps the most important point: Islam's teachings are so easily ascertained; there is no mystery in determining what is "right" and "wrong" in Islam. The Grand Mufti based his fatwa on a canonical hadith, which Muslims and (informed) non-Muslims know is part of Islam's sources of jurisprudence (or usul al-fiqh). And yet the West—with all its institutions of higher learning, including governmental agencies dealing with cultural and religious questions—is still thoroughly "confused" as to what Islam teaches.

All of this is nothing short of a scandal—a reminder of just how deep the mainstream media, academia, and most politicians have their collective heads thrust in the sand.

Meanwhile, here is the latest piece of evidence of just how bad churches have it in the Muslim world, for those who care to know.

It would probably be fairly cheap to hire assassins to take out each and every mullah or mufti who mouths off about other religions.

Give that a good 30 or 40 years to work and Islam would lose the source of its biggestproblem.

Unless we wake up and adopt a no tolerance for Islam attitude in America, this mess is coming here.

See a recent post on the fialure of the Florida Legislature to pass a law forbidding the employment of foreign law in their law courts. Two groups of these bastards - CAIR and one other pressured them and they collapsed like a cheap deck of cards.

In a nutshell, this explains why there can never be peace between the Arab World and Israel.

It really IS time to stop playing nice and to call for the “removal” of all mosques in the free world. It’s time for the removal of all koranimals in civilized nations.

All seven churches listed among the seven in the Book of Revelation were in modern turkey and they were eliminated by previous grand mufti sorts centuries ago. Now, they will never change so we either have to eliminate them or move way the heck out of there...
How these folks are called the “religion of peace” is beyond my comprehension.

“Peace” is a secondary definition of “Islam,” fit for Western consumption. The primary meaning is “submission,” as in submission to Allah’s (often contradictory and irrational) will.

Many centuries ago, the Hashashiyyin did exactly this, often assassinating Islamic, Jewish, and Christian higher-ups to make a statement or change policies in an area. They were generally agnostic but some would dabble in mercenary work. They were akin to the ninja in far east cultures.

Sadly, the Islamic code has taken over most of the middle east. Fear of outsiders has made it difficult for anyone who isn’t Islamic to stay in any area for any lengthy period of time. Meanwhile, they can come to America, squat in some house for a decade and take out a few thousand Americans without so much as raising an eyebrow from the FBI.

I wish he would say that. Or better yet -- destroy all mosques in non-Mozzie lands.

They sure do like those grandiose titles.

Makes them feel important and soothes their inferiority complex. Doesn't change the fact that they're a bunch of foul pederasts.

I’m all for fair play.

You remove the churches, and we’ll remove the mosques.

Sounds fair to me, Mufti-baby.

The reason that hell (on earth) needs gates is to keep the residents IN. Sharia is the Berlin Wall of Islam. All this violence against the West is not merely “because they hate us,” but because the gates have to be regularly fortified to keep the Truth out.
