Saudi Arabia: The seat of Muslim peace and tolerance for others?

Is there no end to the ignorant, bigoted and downright stupid clerics in the world? Especially those who are ideologically driven and attribute their evil motives to everyone else.

Saudi Cleric Questions Holocaust

A prominent Saudi Arabian religious cleric declared that the Holocaust is an “exaggeration” and that Jewish people consume the blood of children during a wide-ranging interview with an Arabic television station.

Saudi cleric Salman Al-Odeh, a well-known scholar revered by millions globally, went on a lengthy tirade against the Jews during an interview Monday in which he stated that “the role of the Jews is to wreak destruction, to wage war, and to practice deception and extortion,” according to a translation of his remarks by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Sounds like he is referring to Islam and the Jihadists! Look anywhere in the world and you will find Muslim terrorists behind most of the conflict. And when Muslims get their way, they tend to kill their own kind over who has the rights to control the religion. Peaceful?

Al-Odeh ranted about the use of human blood in Jewish religious rituals, a notorious anti-Semitic smear commonly referred to as a “blood libel.”

“It is well known that the Jews celebrate several holidays, one of which is the Passover, or the matzos holiday,” he said.

“I read once about a doctor who was working in a laboratory. This doctor lived with a Jewish family. One day, they said to him: ‘We want blood. Get us some human blood,’” Al-Odeh explained.

“He was confused. He didn’t know what this was all about,” Al-Odeh says as the interviewer nods along. “He found that they were making matzos with human blood. They eat it, believing that this brings them close to their false god, Yahweh.”

Jewish people “would lure a child in order to sacrifice him in the religious rite that they perform during that holiday,” Al-Odeh adds.

“Read once,” sounds like a preponderance of proof. And where are all the anemic or dead children? As for making matzos with blood – is this man crazy? Has he ever eaten Matzos?  And what’s up with him disregarding his own religion. Has he not noticed that the Jewish God, whatever he is called, is the same as Allah? That most of his people are Semitic – like the ancient Jews – and except for political boundaries originated in approximately the same place?

The prominent Saudi Cleric also believes that the Holocaust “has been turned into a myth of tremendous proportions.”

Jewish people across the globe now use the Holocaust to extort governments, Al-Odeh claimed.

“The Holocaust has become a source for extortion. Through this Holocaust, the Jews began to extort many governments worldwide—in Europe and in the U.S.,” he says before stating that Israelis are now waging a “Holocaust” against Palestinian people.

What an ignorant bumpkin? Can this man not read the accounts of the Germans themselves who admit to perpetrating this crime against humanity? Does he not see his people exploit terrorism to extort others into following their way of life? Is he not aware of the Saudi Government’s funding of terrorists – with the promise they do not overthrow the Kingdom and its corrupt princes?

“The Jews even began to perpetrate the same thing themselves against the Palestinian people, carrying out a Holocaust in Gaza and the occupied land,” he said. “They attack children, women, and the elderly under the pretext of the Holocaust that they are trying to substantiate.”

Jewish people “believe that have the right to kill anyone who does not adhere to their religion,” Al-Odeh adds.

If this were literally true, the Jews would not suffer continuous rocket attacks from the Palestinians – and would have wiped them out decades ago.

The Obama administration has gone out of its way to maintain stellar relations with the Saudi government, which is known to oppress its people. The president famously took heat early in his presidency for bowing to Saudi King Abdullah.

We live in a wacky Orwellian world – where the politicians routinely claim the evil is good, good is evil, left is right and right is left. They would get up and down wrong if it weren’t for gravity.

Bottom line …

How can this cleric be considered a scholar? How can this cleric spew this crap? Perhaps if he were wiser, he might work on reforming his religion. Promoting tolerance for the ideas and religions of others. But then again, the cleric wants to live in the 12th Century. I say isolate the radical Islamists from the rest of civilized humanity. Let the Palestinians return to Jordan and Egypt where they are not wanted. These miscreants helped destroy Lebanon – the Switzerland of the Desert; don’t let their corrupt hate continue proliferate.
