Saudi TV: 'America Will be Destroyed'
MEMRI is an invaluable resource and encourage everyone to read it often.
Here are some excepts from Saudi controlled television. Keep in mind as you read these that Saudi Arabia is our ally and our "partner in the war or terror." (Quit snickering.)
Saudi professor Nasser Bin Suleiman Al-Omar appeared on Al-Majd, on June 13, 2004, to discuss the approaching collapse of the U.S. and the growing strength of Muslims within the U.S:
"America is collapsing from within. ...Islam is advancing according to a steady plan, to the point that tens of thousands of Muslims have joined the American army and Islam is the second largest religion in America. Today, America is defeated. I have no doubt, not even for a minute, that America is on its way to destruction. ...America will be destroyed."Sheik Muhammad Al-Munajid, a disciple of one of Saudi Arabia's most revered religious leaders, Sheik ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz ibn ‘Abdallah ibn Baaz, stated on Iqraa TV on April 15:
"The issue is not one person, two, ten or a hundred going out with their guns to support their brothers. Defeating the infidels requires a much greater effort. It requires the mobilization of the nation. How can the nation be mobilized? I believe that the stupid acts of these Jews and Crusaders mobilize the nation. The big explosion will come! In spite of everything, it will happen!"This one is my favorite though. Earlier I wrote that Islam makes no distinction between religion, politics, law and government. In this quote a professor (notice that he is a religious figure, a shiek) was asked about what it is permissible to pray for in Islam (try to image such a show in America, even among the most religious people.) Here's the juicy bit.
Sheik Dr. Ahmad Abd Al-Latif, a professor at Um Al-Qura University, was asked the following question on Saudi channel TV1 on May 24:
"Some imams and preachers call for Allah to annihilate the Jews and those who help them, and the Christians and those who support them... Is it permitted according to Islamic law?" Professor Al-Latif responded: "What made them curse the Jews is that the Jews are oppressors... The same goes for the Christians, because of their cruel aggression against Islamic countries ... while the truth is that this is a crusading war whose goal is to harm Muslims. This is why a Muslim is allowed to curse the oppressors from among the Jews and Christians... Cursing the oppressing Jews and the oppressing and plundering Christians and the prayer that Allah will annihilate them is permitted."
