Deal with Saudi Arabia

Reader comment on item: Militant Islam's New Strongholds

Submitted by Tom Pensyl (United States), Oct 28, 2002 at 12:52

In addition to Dr. Pipes' articles, I'd like to recommend an article I read, "Defeating Wahhabism" by Stephen Schwartz. http://frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=4178

I think his actual suggestions for defeating Wahhabism are weak but he gives some excellent insights into the relationship between the Saudi sponsored Wahhabi Islam and the more traditional, moderate Islam found in countries throughout the world.

A minister I once knew had a saying, "If you want to get the flies out of the house, then take out the garbage." In other words, get to the source of the problem, not just to deal with the symptoms. Sometimes, I think our efforts to capture these individual terrorists are like swatting at the flies while we neglect to deal with the huge pile of bullcrap which is right in front of us.

Wake up people. Wake up George Bush and Congress. Deal with Saudi Arabia.
