The enemy within: Saudis giving US mosques "hate propaganda."

Group cites Saudi 'hate' tracts

By Katherine Clad

The government of Saudi Arabia is spreading "hate propaganda" in religious tracts sent to mosques throughout America, telling Muslims to hate Christians and Jews and to kill any Muslim who converts to another religion, a leading human rights group charged yesterday.

Saudi government literature collected during the past year from American mosques also tells Muslims living in the United States to "behave as if on a mission behind enemy lines," says an 89-page report released by the Human Rights Group Freedom House. The report, titled: "Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Fill American Mosques," is based on a yearlong study of more than 200 original documents, all published and disseminated by the government of Saudi Arabia.
"When a government agitates hatred and intolerance, when it counsels people in an authoritative voice to kill other people, that's a human rights violation. That's not protected by First Amendment or free speech," said Nina Shea, director of the Freedom House's Center for Religious Freedom and the editor of the report.


In most instances, the report said, involvement by the Saudi government was immediately evident from the seal or name of a government department emblazoned on the cover of the literature.
Materials examined were easily identifiable as originating from the Saudi Embassy in Washington, the Education Ministry, the Saudi air force and other branches of the Saudi government.


In a way, Mrs. Shea said, the Saudis "have worked out an arrangement that exports the conflict within their own society. ... They reflect the wrath of their own radicals by propagating some of the most extreme doctrines around the world."

Wake up people, we're headed for a war that will spill into our streets. The plans are being laid out right in front of our eyes and we sit and do nothing.

I guess we don't want to OFFEND the muslims.

I say we kick them out now while we still can.

BTW.... 80% of the mosques in the US are receiving money from Saudi Arabia.
