The Grand Mufti of Egypt came out publicly against ISIS. Said that they are not of Islam.
When the Ottomans were in power, they blew up the Nejd when the Wahhabis first started trying to come out.
This Wahhabist nonsense that has turned Islam on it’s head is only about 250 years old. The problem is that it is the Saudi preferred Islam. Saudi Arabia has oil.
The first guy from the House of Saud to raise up and hold the Wahhabi flag was beheaded by the Ottomans. They waxed that idiot. They put down the rebellion. About 70 years passed and Egypt joined forces with Britain to put it down again.
It stayed down until Allenby let Lawrence raise the tribes in alliance to fight the Ottomans and then Britain half ass supported the nascent Saudi state. Saudi Arabia was born with Wahhabism as their national/official religion.
Then in WWII, that old senile FDR made Saudi Arabia a full ally of the West and started pumping dollars in there for oil exploration.
Suddenly, the Wahhabist were flush with dollars.
They put those dollars into spreading the very Islamic virus that the leaders of Islam had seen fit to put down. All the while, America and the West turned a blind eye…because OIL!
We did this to ourselves by allowing Saudi Arabia to become the richest oil producing nation on the planet. They took that money and spread their cancer.
Now, we ignore the root of the disease while vigorously fighting the symptoms.
Why? Because the leaders of the West are idiots…and our corporations are greedy.
They still make their money. They do not care about the chaos or the deaths of ordinary folks across the globe.
The greatest sin of America (or the West) is not racism or abu Ghraib or torture, rendition or My Lai. It is Saudi Arabia.
FDR & AMERICA CREATED THE ISLAMIC THREAT! We brought this Frankenstein to life. We are our greatest enemy.
