The Grand Mufti, the highest official of religious law, of Saudi Arabia, said it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region,” Arut Sheva quoted Jihad Watch as reporting in March 14th issue of the Middle East Forum. Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah based his proclamation on hadith, wherein the prophet of Islam declared on his deathbed that ‘There are not to be two religions in the [Arabian] Peninsula,’ the report said.
Article author Raymond Ibrahim noted the inherent hypocrisy in the Grand Mufti quoting the hadith as reason to destroy churches, whereas, when non-Muslims do so “they are accused of being ‘Islamophobes,’ of intentionally slandering and misrepresenting Islam, of being obstacles on the road to ‘dialogue.”
The Mufti’s proclamation to obliterate Churches was made immediately following his recent calls to silence and suppress dissenting views, namely those of the former columnist Hazma Kashgari, whom he insisted be tried in a religious court for a series of ‘blasphemous’ tweets, the report said.
There will come a time, in the near future, when the wishes of the the Grand Mufti and the likes would be literally fulfilled. At that time not only people in the Middle East, but also the whole world would live happily ever after ‘for about seven years’ without Christian believers because the Bride of Christ would have been evacuated from the earth prior to that, which is to the end time watchers, the ultimate ‘Blessed Hope.’
