Taqiyya anyone!!!

Reader comment on item: Saudi Arabian Airlines Cleans Up Its Act

Submitted by Jaladhi (United States), Aug 31, 2007 at 14:11

Removal of this paragrapgh: "Items and articles belonging to religions other than Islam are also prohibited. These may include Bibles, crucifixes, statues, carvings, items with religious symbols such as the Star of David, and others." from Saudi arabian Ailines website does not mean these articles won't be confiscated from travellers to Saudia. Customs at the aiport is going to do what Saudi government wants. These guys can't cave in so easily by writing of a column on a web site.

The second paragraph has been simply dissolved in the first line of the first paragraph which states:"A number of items are not allowed to be brought into the Kingdom due to religious reasons and local regulations." So a number of items could be all those religious items mentioned in the defunct paragraph.

I see taqiyya in this action!!!
