The Saudis are bulldozing Islam's heritage. Why the silence from the Muslim world?

#2 Since they're arabs and moslems and have sufficient pull the literal meaning of the Koran is whatever they say it is this week and we're always wrong.

#4 I picture one of those rakes that they use on the infield in base ball only WAAAAYYYY bigger. It starts at the Black sea then all the way down to the Red Sea, then allll the way back to the Black Sea, then alllll the way back to the Black Sea...

It keeps doing this moving one row to the East with each pass. It stops when it hits India.

#5 per the Salafis, the existence of historic sites has the potential to encourage the worship of such sites, or the worship of God through an intermediary (e.g., the mother of Mohamot), etc.

No real heritage. Just a bunch of stolen stuff.

#7 The black rock known as the kaaba stone,which is acknowledged as pre Islamic, is of course still worshiped and so there is an inconsistency in the Salafist principle.
