Reader comment on item: Russian Orthodox Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: It is about time we demand recprocity from the Muslims

I am a muslim, I think that allowing the Russian Orthodox to build a church in some parts of Saudi Arabia is a good idea, it won't happen but i think it would be reasonable if the Saudis want to build Masjids everywhere to allow people to at least allow the current religions to build their houeses of prayer as well.

Now Churches in Mecca is a bit of a stretch, but i don't understand why the Saudis are so strict it doesn't help them, it doesn't help muslims and when you force people to do something, it makes them rebel. And if someone is Muslim because they are forced to be it kind of defeats the purpose.
