deals with the islamists

Reader comment on item: Russian Orthodox Churches in Saudi Arabia?

Submitted by lisa (United States), Feb 20, 2014 at 10:50

I feel that to even think that a real deal could be possible is a little far fetched. The obvious hate that is taught by the islamist toward christians is very much ingrained into the society from the children in school throughout their life. How can a person feel safe going to a christian church and thinking they will be able to be safe in their home in a country like saudi arabia.

My husband goes over there all the time and they have inspectors that come on board the ships thinking they can inspect the rooms of the crew for religious things like bibles and crosses. They have to be hidden of fined. One of the things taught in islam is that you really do not have to give your word to an infidel, and if you break it , it is because they were an infidel anyway. I do not trust this islamic deal.
