The US Senate plans to look into the fact that Saudi Arabia has been distributing anti-American propaganda to mosques in the United States, pushing
for acts of violence and promoting hatred of Jews and Christians.
The American government is demanding that Saudi Arabia account for its distribution of hate material to American mosques, as the State Department
pressed Saudi officials for answers last week and as the Senate later this month plans to investigate the propagation of radical Wahhabism on American
The flurry of activity comes months after a report from the Center for Religious Freedom discovered that dozens of mosques in major cities across the
country, including New York, Washington, and Los Angeles, were distributing documents, bearing the seal of the government of Saudi Arabia, that incite
Muslims to acts of violence and promote hatred of Jews and Christians.
A Washington-based group that is part of the human rights organization Freedom House, the Center for Religious Freedom also found during its yearlong
study that the Saudi-produced materials describe democracy and America as un-Islamic. They instruct recent Muslim immigrants to consider Americans as
enemies and the materials urge new arrivals to use their time here as preparation for jihad. The documents also promote the version of Islam
officially embraced by Saudi government and several of the September 11, 2001, hijackers, Wahhabism, as the only authentic Islam.

I'd like to see what Bush plans to do with this one. It seems that Saudi Arabia is now between a rock and a hard place, and Bush will no longer have
the power to protect them.
But, like the 28 pages that went missing from the 9/11 report, I'm sure this will be swept under the carpet as well.
