Saud Spills the Beans

Monolog: Prince Saud Al Faisal Spills the Beans
The Saudi Gazette reveals what Saud Al-Faisal said at a press conference.

“The Kingdom is the cradle of Islam and a country where millions of Muslims come every year to perform the Haj and the King is the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques. Thus the Kingdom is responsible for (reflecting) the desire and will of the Ummah worldwide,”

Thus we are informed that any decision about practicing religious tolerance in the Hijaz is to be made by the Ummah at large.

“Discussing religions runs counter to the spirit of both the Madrid and New York conferences. We have agreed on not touching on beliefs and instead focusing on the common values so that people can be brought together with open minds and hearts to achieve more progress.”

Refresh my memory, Prince. Wasn’t it about fostering religious dialogue? It can’t be much of a dialogue, and should not require two days if all we can discuss is monotheism.

“But from the outset, we should stress the importance of changing the self so that you become different from what you are now. Otherwise nothing would be achieved.” [Emphasis added.]

The beans are spilt. The dialogue is about changing us, not changing Islam. Our role is to submit and obey, theirs is to rule and dominate.

“All religions call for enhancing peace amongst peoples of the world, for reinforcing common values and for refraining from rekindling conflict and pushing the world toward conflict and confrontation.”

Square that with these topics from Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir. Read the verses & sayings which confirm their obvious meaning. Islam’s idea of peace is the condition after the entire world is conquered.
