A Grotesque Protection Racket
Wahabi’s export global fanaticism
It didn’t take long for me to get an answer to the question I posed in a recent column concerning whether it is possible to be both a Muslim and an American citizen.
According to “Document 44” published and distributed by the Saudi Arabian embassy: “It is forbidden to be a Muslim and to become a citizen of a country governed by infidels.” (That’s us!)
I read a report entitled “Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Invade American Mosques.”
There are of course millions of Muslims. And each practices his or her religion in the best way they can given their circumstances and understanding.
And most live in “Muslim countries,” so dealing with “infidels” is just not an issue on a day-to-day basis.
Muslims, as most people, simply want to get through the day safely with enough income to support their families.
However there is one sect of the Muslims that is entirely different. They are called the “Wahabi’s” and they are native to Saudi Arabia .
The Wahabi’s are homicidally adamant that their duty is to follow the letter of the Koran and spread, and impose by force if necessary, their faith and earthly government around the world including right here in San Diego through the Masjid Abu Bakr Mosque.
Their jingoistic worldview would be of little interest to us except for one very important fact. And that fact is that the Saudi Arabian government past and present sponsors them.
And we Americans are totally ambiguous about the Saudi government because of one three-letter word: oil.
The Saudi government is not a democracy. The Saudi family is in power as a result of a conquest of the oil-bearing vicinities in 1924.
The discovery of massive petroleum deposits there put them in the driver’s seat in regards to the world’s economy.
Constrict the oil supply and lifeblood of the world’s wealth would congeal. Little would move; trade would slow; roads would deteriorate; and people would freeze in their homes.
The Saudi’s are calling a lot of the shots in the world.
Up until about 30 years ago, according to the report, the Saudi’s were an affable group sending many of their family to visit, learn, and even live (and party) in the United States.
But then the pesky Wahabi’s started pushing them around.
Since the chubby guys in robes were so comfortable with their money and harems, they were not prepared to duke it out with a bunch of fanatics.
So they made a “Faustian bargain,” if there ever was one.
The Saudi family agreed to both finance and diplomatically support the Wahabi’s in the worldwide exportation of their fanatical beliefs on the sole condition that the Wahabi’s support the Saudi family at home.
It was the normally soft-spoken former Secretary of State George Shultz who called this arrangement “a grotesque protection racket.” And so it is.
Nothing has changed since 9-11. And it is not by accident that 15 of the 19 murderers in New York were Saudi citizens.
With their massive Saudi-government support, the Wahabi’s are reported to have built and presently finance 90 percent of the mosques in the United States .
They finance most of the children’s Muslim schools in the United States . The Wahabi’s finance most, if not all, of the Muslim clerical training in the United States .
Since they are the only clerical schools, they are the source of Muslim chaplains for our military and our prisons. Most Americans know little about the Muslim religion. We are uncomfortable judging others. Plus most of the hate material circulated by the Wahabi’s is in Arabic, which few of us speak.
If you are an atheistic American, they have it in for you. If you are a Christian American, you are an infidel. If you are a Jewish American, they reserve special venom for you. And if you are a non-Wahabi Muslim, you are also in trouble.
The constitution is not a suicide pact.
Come on Mr. Attorney General, shut these guys down! -one-
