Bush may have held hands with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, but maybe he shouldn’t ask him to go steady just yet. The Saudi double game continues. From WorldNetDaily.com, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Is Saudi Arabia an ally or enemy of the United States in the war on terror?
The question is raised with the disclosure of secretly recorded comments from the kingdom’s chief justice encouraging young Saudis to travel to Iraq to wage war against Americans.
“If someone knows that he is capable of entering Iraq in order to join the fight, and if his intention is to raise up the word of God, then he is free to do so,” says Sheik Saleh Al Luhaidan in Arabic on the October audiotape from a government mosque, obtained by NBC News.
While Luhaidan warns Iraq is risky because “evil satellites and drone aircraft” watch the borders, he stresses making the trip to fight Americans is religiously permissible.
“The lawfulness of his action is in fighting an enemy who is fighting Muslims and came for war,” says Luhaidan.
