FROM THE PEACE-LOVING SAUDI FILES...In the Washington Times:
LONDON - - - Saudi Arabia's top Muslim cleric has called on the Islamic world to unite against a worldwide conspiracy of Hindus, Christians, Jews and secularists threatening Islamic moral values. Muslims, he said, should cleanse themselves from creeping Western values and American-controlled "globalization."
He goes after Hindus, too, what the hell. The report is by Paul Martin, based on a Saudi TV broadcast watched in London:
Though he was particularly scornful of Jews, whom he said had been cursed and turned into "pigs and monkeys" by Allah, he turned his ire on Christians and capitalists as well.
This is routine--calling Jews "pigs and monkeys." People have become numb to it. Don't.
