Islam 101 ISLAMIC STATE Saudi Arabia



I agree with Stefan: 

So much for the claim that “ISIS is not Islam”. But what else is new?

Saudi poll to reveal public’s level of sympathy for IS

The Sakina Campaign plans to carry out a scientific survey to determine the position of the Saudi public on the “caliphate” announced by the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria. This comes after the results of an opinion poll of Saudis were released on social networking sites, claiming that 92% of the target group believes that “IS conforms to the values of Islam and Islamic law.” Observers believe that in the current period, it is most important to “focus on the roots of extremism and to address and fight it.”

The Saudi Sakina campaign plans to conduct a survey to determine the extent to which the Saudi public sympathizes with the Islamic State and its recent declaration of a caliphate.

Meanwhile, Saudi families refused to hold mourning gatherings for their sons who were killed in troubled places outside of the kingdom. The “confusion” that was sparked by IS’ recent expansion saw the proliferation of websites selling shirts carrying slogans that called for jihad and glorified IS. Advisory Committee member Sheikh Abdullah al-Suwailem refused to classify those affiliated with terrorist groups as “criminals,” claiming that pressure had led them to join these groups in the absence of guidance.

Some of the families of those killed fighting outside of Saudi Arabia expressed their “joy,” refusing to show grief over the deaths of their sons. Preachers and sheikhs considered this ideology “the reason for terrorism,” saying, “It harms the reputation of the Islamic religion.” They stressed that those who go to these places of conflict are in violation of the religious authority, which must be followed. They therefore concluded that their deaths are not a form of martyrdom, as their families think. The families are overcome with emotion and distribute sweets and refuse to mourn, show sadness or cry, considering those killed to be martyrs.

    That certainly puts to rest the question of why the “house of Saud” has publicly decried IS/ISIS/ISIL. Securing ‘respect’ as the ‘legitimate’ albeit tenuous guardians of Islam’s ‘holy’ places – integral for the immensely lucrative Hajj, the doctrinally mandated and costly ‘trip-of-a-lifetime’ for each devout follower of this satanic cult- is again facing challenges to it’s assumed ‘authority’.
    The princelings of this tribe surely haven’t forgotten the events of 1979, no, not in Iran (simultaneous with the hostage crisis)…but right on their doorstep in the holiest of the holies. . .1979′s Seige of Mecca

    On November 20, 1979, worldwide attention was focused on Tehran, where the Iranian hostage crisis was entering its third week. The same morning—the first of a new Muslim century—hundreds of gunmen stunned the world by seizing Islam’s holiest shrine, the Grand Mosque in Mecca. Armed with rifles that they had smuggled inside coffins, these men came from more than a dozen countries, launching the first operation of global jihad in modern times. Led by a Saudi preacher named Juhayman al Uteybi, they believed that the Saudi royal family had become a craven servant of American infidels, and sought a return to the glory of uncompromising Islam.

    We are witness to this twenty-first century ‘duelling Mahdis’ struggle for triumphalist rights to control the kabbah for global caliph recognition…opening scenes…Act II, the Arab Spring, ISIS/ISIL/IS
