In Holland Eshan Jami, a politician who was beat up 3 times by radical muslims, now has police protection since the threats on his person had become very severe. Mr. Jami is an ex muslim and voices his opinions strongly about Islam.
As a reaction to this a politican Geert Wilders called for a ban of the Kuran in Holland. Of course everyone was outraged about this and dismissed the idea right away.
Then I happend to stumble on this article.
“Despite a series of initiatives aimed at generating foreign tourism, the Saudi Arabian government continues to bar Jews and Christians from bringing items such as Bibles, crucifixes and Stars of David into the country and is threatening to confiscate them on sight.”
On the webiste of Saudi Airlines it even reads: “items and articles belonging to religions other than Islam are also prohibited. These may include Bibles, crucifixes, statues, carvings, items with religious symbols such as the Star of David, and others”
I guess it’s terrible that people in the west want to forbid the Kuran, but when the Saudi’s forbid religious books and artifacts it’s ok? I guess oil is a powerful tool :rolleyes:
