#1 This is a cryptic article. The only thing explanation that would make the entire article coherent is that imams and/or parishioners are hanging posters at mosques all over Arabia calling for donations to Al Qaeda, to AQAP, to Hamas, or to jihadi terrorism in general. If the volume weren't so tremendous, the Ministry of Islamic Affairs wouldn't even get involved. Doesn't that give you a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling that Saudi mosques are wallpapered with slick ads to give zakat to jihadists? And do you think all the imams will comply? And notice, they didn't say stop MAKING such donations, just stop ADVERTISING that the imams are accepting such donations.

#2 Wouldn't have to be the imam accepting the donation. A drop-box, a toll-free number, a representative outside the mosque on Fridays. Just one more layer of obfuscation.

But that the posters are being stuck both inside or outside the mosque means the imams either have no say in what goes on with the mosque or they're ignoring them (intentionally or not).

#3 This bites the big one. The ol' mosque just won't be the same without the "Death to America" and "Uncle Binny Wants You" posters. Next, they'll want us to store our ammunition someplace else.
