Playing With History

Of course American students are getting a whitewashed view of Islam. Our "friendly ally" Saudi Arabia, who by the way bans anything un-Islamic in their "Kingdom" such as bibles has to maintain their overtly friendly appearance. Teaching the truth would destroy them.

Saudi Arabia funds countless schools, mosques, etc. in the U.S. Well, I'm here to tell Saudi Arabia that we don't need their schools or mosques, or their money. They can keep their anti-American filth on their own shores and in their own books.

A few facts about our friends the Saudis. They provided the ideological agenda for 9/11. Osama bin Laden is from Saudi. And so were 15 of the 19 hijackers. Hmmm... The Saudi Wahhabism belief leads to extremism and radical fundamentalism. No longer do they believe only in Takfir (simply condemning Non-Muslims as non-believers), but have moved to the ideology that they must be brought under Islamic control, or destroyed. While it may be true that a number of Saudi officials denounced 9/11, if that's what one would call it, a prominent Saudi religious leader, Sheikh Hamud bin Uqla al-Shuaibi, authored a book following 9/11 titled "The Foundations of the Legality of the Destruction That Befell America".

Saudis charitable contributions are no better. Proof from a letter written by the former Palestinian prime minister, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), on December 30, 2000 to the Riyadh mayer complained of Saudi funds going to al-Jamiya al-Islamiya (The Islamic Society), which is part of Hamas.

And you thought they'd cooperate concerning textbooks??? Their purpose is NOT to cooperate, but dominate.
