Saudi Arabia’s Top “Destroy-All-Churches” Cleric Calls Twitter “The Source Of All Evil And Devastation”
Because it’s “a source of lies and falsehood.” This is quite eye-opening. I had no idea that Twitter was the source of Islam …
Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead …”
‘If it were used correctly, it could be of real benefit, but unfortunately it’s exploited for trivial matters,’ Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh said on his ‘Fatwa’ television show broadcast late Monday.
Twitter is ‘the source of all evil and devastation’, the mufti said.
‘People are rushing to it thinking it’s a source of credible information but it’s a source of lies and falsehood.’
The social media platform is popular among both men and women in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia, where some supported the mufti’s views but many others objected.
‘This is why I will repent, and close my account to distance myself from this great evil,’ one Twitter user wrote with apparent sarcasm.
‘Respected sheikh, how can you judge something without using it?’ another post asked.
But a supporter of the sheikh wrote: ‘I swear the mufti has spoken the truth; the evils of Twitter are many.'” Source – Ahram Online.
Flashback: Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Calls for ‘Destruction of All Churches in Region’ – “According to several Arabic news sources, last Monday, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is ‘necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.’ The Grand Mufti made his assertion in response to a question posed by a delegation from Kuwait, regarding the position of a Kuwaiti parliament member who recently called for the ‘removal’ of churches (he later ‘clarified’ by saying he merely meant that no churches should be built in Kuwait). The Kuwaiti delegation wanted to confirm Sharia’s position on churches. Accordingly, the Grand Mufti ‘stressed that Kuwait was a part of the Arabian Peninsula, and therefore it is necessary to destroy all churches in it.’” Read more.
