"Just days before Crown Prince Abdullah showed up at President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, to declare that "tolerance must extend to those of
all faiths and practices," Saudi police stormed a clandestine church in a suburb of Riyadh and arrested 40 Christians for proselytizing.
Saudi state-controlled newspapers reported on April 23 that two days earlier, security forces rounded up 40 men, women, and children of Pakistani
citizenship who were worshipping at an abandoned villa in western Riyadh, according to translations provided by American-based Saudi monitors.
Al-Riyadh newspaper quoted a security official as saying that the Christians were arrested for "trying to spread their poisonous religious beliefs to
others through the distribution of books and pamphlets," the Saudi Institute in Washington, D.C., said in a report.
That the arrests occurred just hours before Mr. Abdullah flew to Texas for a friendly meeting with Mr. Bush underscored the gap between Saudi pledges
to the White House and its actions at home."
How many stories like this have come out of that world garden of evil called Saudi. Perhaps it is time to melt down Mecca. Maybe just an airborne
laser strike on one corner as a warning.
How about a nuke on the oil fields. Take away their money and thier power.
