Saudi Columnist: Religious Sheikh’s Lure Young Muslims To Commit Terrorism

Qatar and Saudi Arabia (and now recently Kuwait) are huge purses and employees to terrorists, sending them everywhere to other countries to try and occupy foreign territories and create conflicts (Syria, Tunisia, Libya, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Egypt and so on). They also send innocent elderly, handicapped and children to be strapped to bombs to kill other Muslims. They have no choice to say no. Women are forced from their families and send to terrorist regions to serve as prostitutes and be raped by deranged extremists. These leaders have no foresight and imagine they are immune to the problems they help to create. The same terrorists they fund are aggressively opposed to these rich Arab leaders, and to the Saudi royal family.
Is this the kind of people our governments should be collaborating with, trading with, selling properties to and negotiating with??

This fat Qatari whale (Trojan pig), Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, is friend with all the leaders in the world, who permit him to grow his wealth so he can spread salafi extremism to our shores, while he funds terrorism and blow up other Muslims. Is this the kind of vile animal we should be engaged with at all? Ban trading contracts with Qatar! Ban all oil purchases from the Arabs and isolate them. Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani has now resigned and put another whale in his place: his son Qatari Crown Prince Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani.


Who will be the next target for these terrorists when radicals begin to take over in one country after another, expanding and growing with Saudi and Qatari oil money? They will target the very hand that feeds them. You can find many hateful threats in videos and social media where these radicals call for the establishment of a new Khilafa, and to do this they want to kill the Saudi royal family and put an end to their rule by a coup. They even call the Arab rulers ‘kafirs’!
If the Arab leadership had any wisdom at all, they would take drastic measures to ban hate speech in mosques, educate the youth and create jobs for them, execute hate clerics, remove hateful materials from the Quran and monitor Muslim Brotherhood membership with an iron fist. Most of Saudi clerics are Muslim Brotherhood members.
Apostasy or atheism is not an option. So, to remove hateful materials in the Quran should be sensible. After all, how many times has the Quran been abbreviated through the centuries? Clerics themselves cannot agree to many sections of the Quran claiming they are not authentic. Muslim clerics alter texts in the Quran and rewrite it, unlike in other religions where scholars can issue personal interpretations of religious texts while the original version stays intact. Therefore, how can even practicing Muslims trust their Quran? How would they even know who has altered it, and what kind of persons they were?

Saudi Columnist: We Must Prevent Our Young People From Going To Wage Jihad In Syria

In his September 9, 2013 column in the Saudi government daily Al-Riyadh, columnist Muhammad Al-Rashidi focused on the phenomenon of sheikhs who mislead Saudi youths and persuade them to join the jihad in Syria against the Assad regime. Al-Rashidi criticized the lack of any official Saudi informational outreach aimed at explaining what is happening and preventing these young people from falling for these sheikhs’ deception – especially in light of the fact that the country has seen its young people going to wage jihad before, in Afghanistan and Iraq, and has already been burned by it.

The following are excerpts from the column:[1]

Muhammad Al-Rashidi (image:

“Recently, there have been many reports of the deaths of Saudi youths, some no older than 20, while participating [in fighting] Syrian regime troops. This record has been played over and over, from the days of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, through the American invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, to today’s events in Syria.

“I am not [here to] talk about the circumstances of their deaths, or of [these young people’s] goals; I am wondering what we are doing to increase their awareness and to stop those who deceive them – those who sleep in the most lavish palaces and enjoy European vacations.

“Why have we failed to make clear what it is that these young people are doing – that is, committing suicide – even though there are hadiths that forbid it?

“This same scenario has recurred [in the past], but we have not learned our lesson – [even though] it was we who were harmed by this [mobilization of] volunteers for jihad in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now in Syria. Where is the informational television programming on this topic, when we see [our] youths in the prime of their lives [going to] fight wars that are forbidden by the [Saudi] ruler?

“This matter is important in a religious sense, and no one denies this [fact] except those who are benefiting from these young peoples’ deaths, or terrorist groups that exploit them [and direct them to act] against their homeland and its people. What a [great] price we have paid in this matter! And we suffer from it to this day.

“I am personally saddened by the families of these young victims who were led astray, who take pride in their sons’ martyrdom and speak of their heroism. But is it really [so] easy for them to sacrifice their sons for something that is prohibited by the clerics in their own country…?

“I know that this matter is very sensitive for [families] who have just lost their sons in Syria – but the language of reason prohibits it [i.e. going to wage jihad]. For many long years, the media have been pointing out the danger of our young people’s participation in such wars, warning mainly against certain ‘partisan’ sheikhs [alluding to the Muslim Brotherhood] who lead them astray and who, most regrettably, exploit the religion for [their own] personal interests…

“The media, and specifically the satellite channels, need to focus on [the issue of] our young people being lured [to participate] in regional wars, particularly in Syria. This because, unfortunately, we are witnessing the great silence [on this issue], [and] the exploitation of the death of sons, more and more of them recently; and the attempt to recruit many young people and to call on them, directly or indirectly, [to participate] in the war in Syria…

“The continuation of the luring of our young people, and of the use of religious rulings to push them, in the beginning of their lives, to join terrorist organizations that exploit them – while the goals of the organizations that are doing this are not clear[ly stated] – is a very sad affair. What is strange is that this scenario repeats itself over and over – and that many do not even know it.”
