Will Saudi Justice find its Way into American Justice?

The cradle of Islam is Mecca. Mecca is governed and protected by the House of Saud. The House of Saud is the royal family that reigns and rules Saudi Arabia. The House of Saud is entwined with a movement founded by Muhammad ibn Abd al Wahhab; thus the influence of violence in Islam.

The House of Saud is committed in spreading Wahhabi teaching through the entire globe using oil wealth to facilitate Wahhabi education and the building of Mosques both in the Mohammedan Middle East and in the West. Wahhabism is the foundation of the murdering Islamic terrorists such as al Qaeda, the Taliban, Hamas and related Islamic/Islamist violent groups. You can guess that Wahhabism is very influential among Mohammedans due to the oil money of the Saudis used to propagate the death cult globally. Reliable sources put at 80% of Mosques in America are Wahhabi supported or funded. Check out this quote from testimony given before the U.S. Senate in 2003:

At the present time, Shia and other non-Wahhabi Muslim community leaders estimate that 80 percent of American mosques are under Wahhabi control. This does not mean 80 percent of American Muslims support Wahhabism, although the main Wahhabi ideological agency in America, the so-called Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has claimed that some 70 percent of American Muslims want Wahhabi teaching in their mosques.1This is a claim we consider unfounded. (Steven Schwartz)

If this was so in 2003, consider or imagine the teaching of Mohammedanism in America today. This would mean organizations such as and similar to CAIR that claim they represent the majority of Muslim/Americans are not as moderate and peaceful as they would have you believe.

The House of Saud, the ruling family of Saudi Arabia is of the Sunnis. Sunnis represent roughly 90% (Let’s say 85% to
90% depending who you read) of those that call themselves Muslims (Mohammedans). The Shia sect represents roughly the other 10% (and of the Shias the West could view that as splintered as well). Of the Shia sects the largest appears to be the Twelvers or Jaafaris (same sect different names). The Twelvers can be seen in the Ayatollahs of Iran. The Ayatollahs appear to me to be as repressive and violent as the Wahhabi Sunnis.

I pray OIL is the only reason that the American government has cultivated a friendly alliance with Saudi Arabia. Even though the Saudi government may express American appreciation to the West publically, its political infrastructure continuously denounces American democracy and society.

Transnational politics regardless of culture or dominant faith is as Machiavellian (Long thoughts and short definition) today as it ever has been. The Machiavellianism may be more sophisticated; however politics is still the means justify the ends as a methodology to plan the ends.

Now that you read this far let me go out on a limb to summarize Saudi Arabia:

    The Saudi nation/Monarchy is a repressive despotic government which uses violent Wahhabi Sharia Law as the essence of its rule of law.

Saudi adjudicated crimes may be judged as capital or maiming decisions. Saudi considered crimes in America may not even be a crime or if it is the punishment would probably be minimal especially for first time offenders.

Check this out from Dhimmi Watch:

… it's permissible to kill broadcasters of "immoral" television, but a judge must order it

… An update on this story. "Only courts can order death for ‘depraved' TV bosses," from Agence France-Presse, September 14:

    RIYADH - A top Saudi cleric and judge sought Sunday to tone down a controversial religious edict sanctioning the killing of owners of television stations that air "debauchery," saying they could only be put to death after a judicial process.

    If the owners of television networks that air "depravation and debauchery" are not deterred by lesser punishments, they would be referred to justice which issues its rulings in keeping with the laws in force in the kingdom, Sheikh Saleh al-Luhaidan told state-run Saudi television.

    "They may be killed through a judicial (ruling)," he added.

    Luhaidan, who heads the Supreme Judicial Council, the highest judicial body in ultra-conservative Muslim Saudi Arabia, sparked controversy by saying on the radio that the owners of television networks broadcasting "immoral" programmes may be killed.

But: Define "immoral." I Love Lucy? Little House on the Prairie? CBS Evening News with Katie Couric?

    It is lawful to kill... the apostles of depravation... if their evil cannot be easily removed through simple sanctions," Luhaidan said, according to excerpts of the remarks broadcast on Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya satellite television on Friday.

    Luhaidan acknowledged on Sunday that his remarks had caused an outcry, but put that down to what he said was a wrong interpretation of his views, insisting he had said that death would be through a judicial process.

    Saudi Arabia applies a rigorous doctrine of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, and its Islamic courts hand down death sentences for a series of offences including murder, rape and drug trafficking.

    The oil-rich kingdom's grand mufti recently issued a fatwa, or religious edict, describing
    a highly popular television soap
    as "un-Islamic," but Luhaidan's remarks went further than any made by hardline clerics against entertainment programmes seen as immoral.

This is the kind of teaching that is being financed by oil rich Saudi Wahhabists in Muslim-American Mosques.

Does Freedom of Religion mean that Americans look the other way while such violent laws are promoted in 70% of Muslim-American Mosques?

Wahhabism may not be the dominant form of Mohammedanism globally but it has the money and the influence.
