Orson Scott Card on Saudi Subversion
Freedom House, which monitors the state of freedom in all countries, with particular emphasis on religious and press freedom (without which, of course, there is no freedom at all), has taken on the project of monitoring Saudi government publications that are disseminated abroad.
Their 89-page report, “Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Fill American Mosques” (as summarized by Katherine Clad in the Washington Times of 29 January 2005), accuses the Saudi government of “telling Muslims to hate Christians and Jews and to kill any Muslim who converts to another religion.”
This comes from translations of Saudi government literature collected from American mosques during the past year.
Muslims are encouraged to “behave as if on a mission behind enemy lines.”
We’d already have known about this if Islam weren’t getting a free ride in our politically correct press — or if most papers weren’t so shortsighted, or reporters so lazy, as not to go to the trouble of translating from Arabic into English.
It’s that laziness (or bias) that Yasser Arafat always counted on, when he said one thing in English and the opposite in Arabic, and expected not to be caught by the western media. He was rarely disappointed.
We keep hearing that the Saudi government fears democracy — and we should fear it too — because if the people of Saudi Arabia voted, they would elect a government far more fanatical and anti-American than the current one.
That would actually be impossible. There cannot be a government more fanatical in its hatred of everything America stands for than the Saudi government.
