Why Are We Not Surprised?

Saudi Government Linked To Anti-Gay Texts

The Saudi Arabian government’s been up to some nasty tricks. An independent report out of England says the government has been providing British mosques with anti-Western, anti-gay propaganda.

The Policy Exchange, timing its report to Saudi King Abdullah’s state visit, said the material expressed a deep-rooted antipathy toward Western society, calling for violence against enemies of Islam, including women and gays who demand equal rights.

“Saudi Arabia is the ideological source of much of this sectarianism – and must be held to account for it,” the study said. “Islamic institutions in the U.K. must clean up their act.”

No word on whether Prime Minister Gordon Brown will be discussing the matter with Abdullah. Considering the amount of power, oil and money held by the Saudis, we have a feeling it will conveniently slip his mind.
