Does this give you any insight into what Christians around the world face in Muslim societies? The Saudi’s have funded a large portion of the world’s mosques and clerical positions. With this support comes control of the message.
Saudi’s hear this type of thing all their lives and spread it around the world. Then in the US they spend many millions to project an image of a stalwart friend of the US and buy votes and influence in the US congress.
Saudi Professor of Islamic Law on Saudi TV Exhorts Muslims to “Positive Hatred” of Christians
Sheikh Abd Al-Aziz Fawzan Al-Fawzan, a professor of Islamic law at Al-ImamUniversity, who frequently appears on Saudi TV recently made anti-Christian comments on Saudi Al-Majd TV.
He told his audience to hate anyone “who worships Christ, son of Mary” and added that “whoever says ‘I don’t hate him [i.e. a Christian]’ is not a Muslim…” He went on to explain that such an attitude “is not racism” since the Christian is not hated “because of his color, gender, blood, country, or because he is American, European, Chinese, or Asian,” and stipulated that this hatred should be “positive hatred” that guides and reforms.

Following these statements are excerpts from other interviews from the past year, including Al-Fawzan’s views on the tsunami which he says was Allah’s punishment for homosexuality and fornication at Christmas; a call by Al-Fawzan to Iraqis to do their individual duty and wage Jihad; and his views on a woman’s ability to drive and lead prayers:
Muslims Must Hate Christians With “Positive Hatred” – December 16, 2005, Al-Majd TV
Al-Fawzan: “Someone who denies Allah, worships Christ, son of Mary, and claims that God is one third of a trinity – do you like these things he says and does? Dont you hate the faith of such a polytheist who says God is one third of a trinity, or who worships Christ, son of Mary?
. . .”This is not racism, my brother. We don’t hate a polytheist because of his color, gender, blood, country, or because he is American, European, Chinese, or Asian. They are our partners in humanity. An American Muslim may be better in Allah’s view than all the Arabs.”
. . .”But if this person is an infidel – even if this person is my mother or father, God forbid, or my son or daughter – I must hate him, his heresy, and his defiance of Allah and His prophet. I must hate his abominable deeds. Moreover, this hatred must be positive hatred. It should make me feel compassion for him, and should make me guide and reform him.”
