The diary of a Saudi man, currently living in the United Kingdom, where the Religious Police no longer trouble him for the moment.
In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.
The government studiously avoids commenting on Iraq. Indeed, Saudi Arabia lent some airfields to the coalition 12 months ago. But thay also keep their options open - the major Imams, who are on the government payroll, are recruiting fresh meat for the Jihad.
SERMON AGAINST U.S. WARRANTED – IMAMS
A fairly innocuous title, you may think. Just another rant against the US. But look at some of the detail.
Comparing US actions akin to Persians in history at the dawn of Islam, Al-Jubairah believed that the United States would end up in the trashcan of history after experiencing defeat in Iraq.
I can t tell you how to help your fellow Muslims. I can t ask you to go for Jihad because taking the Jihad decision is not in my hand. Also, I can t ask you to send money because we don t know who will take the money and where they will spend it on. America has closed all doors and all the ways between our beloved ones and us. But wait my brothers and sisters, wait, there is a path that America can t close: Allah s path .
Al-Jebairah feels that Muslims should support their Muslim brothers by prayers , weapons and awareness especially with regard to the plans that their enemies draw against them. He believes that Jihad [holy war] is the only security valve for Muslims to guarantee their security and dignity.
Sa ad Al-Essa, Sheikh of a mosque in Al-Khobar, believes that what is happening in Iraq is something worth fighting for.
When both the Imams were asked about the reason behind the unison of the theme of their speeches and whether they received any government instruction in this regard, they denied any such thing
So now we're going to see more Saudi youth heading towards Baghdad, lambs to the slaughter. And the government pretend they have nothing to do with it.
