Condemn and denigrate Shiite and Sufi Muslims’ beliefs and practices as heretical and call them “polytheists.”
Command Muslims to “hate” Christians,Jews,polytheists,and other“unbelievers,”including non-Wahhabi Muslims,though,incongruously,not to treat them “unjustly.”
Teach that the Crusades never ended and identify the American Universities in Beirut and in Cairo,other Western and Christian social service providers,media outlets,centers for academic studies of Orientalism,and campaigns for women’s rights as part of the modern phase of the Crusades.
Teach that “the Jews and the Christians are enemies of the [Muslim] believers” and that “the clash” between the two realms “continues until the Day of Resurrection.”
Define jihad to include “wrestling with the infidels by calling them to the faith and battling against them” and assert that the spread of Islam through jihad is a “religious obligation.”[The word qital, translated here as “battle,” is derived from the verb qatala, “to kill,” and is virtually never used metaphorically.]
Cite a selective teaching of violence against Jews,while,in the same lesson, ignore the passages of the Qur’an and hadiths [narratives of the life of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad] that counsel tolerance.
Discuss Jews in violent terms, blaming them for virtually all the “sedition” and wars of the modern world.
....they include assertions that it is permissible for a Muslim to kill an “apostate,” an “adulterer,” and those practicing “major polytheism.” One lesson states that “it is not permissible to violate the blood,property,or honor
of the unbeliever who makes a compact with the Muslims,” but is pointedly silent on whether security guarantees are extended to non-Muslims without such a compact.
There is also a lesson from a tenth grade text on Jurisprudence now posted on the Saudi Ministry of Education website that sanctions the killing of homosexuals and discusses methods for doing so.Burning with fire,stoning, or throwing from a high place are methods that are mentioned.Though the lesson quotes a traditional scholar saying the Prophet Muhammad made no judgment on homosexuality,it presents the Saudi sharia ruling that homosexuals should be killed as definitive.
They assert that unbelievers, such as Christians,Jews,and
Muslims who do not share Wahhabi beliefs and practices,are hated “enemies,” and that true believers should aid and show loyalty only to other true believers.These texts teach that Christians, Jews, and others have united in a war against Islam that will ultimately end in the complete destruction of these infidels.The books promote global jihad as an “effort to wage war against the unbelievers.” In these lessons,no argument is made that such references to jihad mean only spiritual struggle and defensive warfare.
they believe they would be forbidden to practice the faith of their ancestors in today’s Saudi Arabia and value religious freedom.They affirm the importance of respecting non-Muslims as well,pointing to verses in the Qur’an that speak with kindness about non-Muslims.They raise examples of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad visiting his sick Jewish neighbor standing in deference at a Jew’s funeral procession,settling a dispute in favor of a truthful Jew over a dishonest person who was a Muslim, and forming alliances with Jews and polytheists, among others.They criticize the Wahhabis for distorting and even altering the text of the Qur’an in support of their bigotry.They say that in their tradition jihad is applicable only in defense of Islam and Muslims.
