If British made Saudi Arabia, they made a huge mistake

Reader comment on item: Islamic London: "Run, Hide, Tell"
in response to reader comment: Who Established Saudi Arabia?

Submitted by Prashant, Feb 22, 2018 at 21:06

Dear Dr Pipes, If the British made Saudi Arabia, they did not know what they were doing. They should have declared Mecca and Medina a Jewish+Christian+Muslim city which is what it was for the most part of the history. This statement might sound strange to you and your readers but only as long as we make the mistake of judging Islam by Islamic standards. The moment we start judging Islam with neutral, world standards and start treating things symmetrically, things will start falling into place. So I humbly submit.
