The quaint grand mufti

Reader comment on item: Obama to Palestinians: Accept the Jewish State
in response to reader comment: A little Invention

Recently, the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia stated that all churches in the Arabian peninsula must be destroyed. The grand mufti, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, based his judgement on a hadith of Mohammed.

The grand mufti also happens to be the highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia, head of the Supreme Council of Islamic Scholars, and has spent his life studying Islam. Did he invent a hadith, too? quaint!
