An article from the Opinion Journal entitled Hypocrisy Most Holy outlines abuses by the Saudi hard-line Wahhabi theocracy on symbols of Christianity, such as crosses and the Bible.
Written by Ali al-Ahmed, director of the Saudi Institute in Washington, the article details examples of religious intolerance such as the beheading of a Muslim on a charge of apostasy for owning a Bible, the routine burning of Bibles that are confiscated, etc. It makes for an infuriating read.
The conclusion Mr. al-Ahmed reaches is simple: If Muslims wish other religions to respect their beliefs, they should stop being intolerant of the religious beliefs of
Respect is a two way street.
