No Saudi First Ammendment

Reader comment on item: Kafir Consular Services in Mecca

Submitted by Dave (Canada), Aug 29, 2014 at 06:06

Saudi Arabia doesn't allow non-Moslems to go to Mecca, and only Islam is permitted in that theocracy, a fact that wasn't even mentioned in CAIR's ironic cry for Uncle Sam's protection. If the State Department had any pride they would use this complaint as an opportunity to lecture CAIR on the gargantuan differences between the American concept of religious freedom and what CAIR assumes. We protect freedoms for all religions and not just those internal to Islam.
