Terrorist states of course, but what’s even more troubling/dangerous is the ideology that feeds both, Islam 101…
What’s Worse: ‘Terrorist Groups’ or ‘Terrorist Nations’?
The ugly truth about the Pensacola murderer’s Saudi homeland.
One of the most meaningless statements made by CNN concerning the recent Pensacola naval air station shooting—where Ahmed Muhammad Alshamrani, a Saudi man, killed three people and injured eight—was to say “It does not appear Alshamrani had ties to terrorist groups, two sources told CNN. He had been training at the Florida base for two years, according to a spokesman for the assistant to the defense secretary.”
The fact is, just being born and bred in Saudi Arabia, as Alshamrani was, is enough to inculcate “terrorism”—that is, hate for and possibly violence against non-Muslims—into the hearts and minds of its inhabitants. One need not also have actual “ties to terrorist groups.”
Osama bin Laden, also born and raised in Saudi Arabia, is a perfect example. He was not eventually evicted for screaming bloody jihad or hate for infidels—both mainstream aspects of Saudi teaching—but for publicly accusing the Saudi crown of not practicing the jihad it preached.
If this seems exaggerated, consider some facts about our “good friend and ally,”™ Saudi Arabia. It has actually published online a fatwa, an Islamic-sanctioned opinion—in Arabic only—entitled, “Duty to Hate Jews, Polytheists, and Other Infidels” (my translation here). It comes from the fatwa wing of the government, meaning it has the full weight of the Saudi crown behind it. According to this governmentally-supported fatwa, all Muslims must “oppose and hate whomever Allah commands us to oppose and hate, including the Jews, the Christians, and other mushrikin [polytheists], until they believe in Allah alone and abide by his laws, which he sent down to his Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him” (see Koran 60:4).
