Up until November 2003, the website of the Saudi Embassy in Washington, DC, said: “The Muslims are required to raise the banner of Jihad in order to make the Word of Allah supreme in this world, to remove all forms of injustice and oppression, and to defend the Muslims. If Muslims do not take up the sword, the evil tyrants of this earth will be able to continue oppressing the weak and [the] helpless”¦”
But now they have turned against those who teach the same things. Got to keep up appearances, you know.
“Saudi arrests are effort against Web jihad,” by Shaun Waterman for UPI (thanks to all who sent this in):
WASHINGTON — In arresting three men suspected of spreading Al Qaeda propaganda on the Web, Saudi authorities are trying to take the battle against extremism to the Internet.
Earlier this month, the official Saudi Press Agency reported that the ministry of the interior had “arrested three people involved in promoting deviant thoughts through the Internet to undermine the security of the country.”
It identified two of those arrested as Saudis who had used the online aliases Abu Aseed Al Falluji and Abu Abdullah Al Najdi. It said that the third man – who was not identified – was a foreigner arrested in Medina and was responsible for the publication of the online jihadist magazine Sada Al Jihad, or “Echoes of Jihad.”
