I do agree with you on the easy ignition here. I personally am tired of hysterical posts, and I am tired of the anti american rhetoric. Knock the greedy gevernment, but not the good people. They for the most part have big hearts, and the clown in the whitewash house does not speak for them.
I believe the Ummah comes first, and I do believe in speaking up when something is not right.
I had a sister flame me and publically chastise my for even smacking of criticism of the Saudis,
I shouldn't say anything I guess about them exploiting the sacred city of Mekkah for their own financial gain.
But yet I recall in Surah 16 how the prophet stated to keep the unbelievers away fram the Ka'ba.
And I remember the story of how he smashed the idols of the pagans.
And the sunnah story of how the Prophet (pbuh)was praying on the early days,
and how one of the disbelievers put camel dung between his shoulders blades as he prostrated, and his brave daughter Fatima knocked the filth from his back and cursed the perpatrators.
Shopping malls and high rises (money) across from the Masjid al Haram, camel dung, and idols.
I guess we all have different views of things depending on our cultural heritage and origins.
I am glad I have been there and been done, the Hotel would break my heart.
