The official flag of Saudi Arabia has been used by its government for the last 34 years (since March 15, 1973). It is green with white Arabic inscriptions and a large sword.
The script on the flag is the Islamic declaration of faith:
لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله
la ilaha illa llahu muhammadun rasulu llah
Translation: “No God but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet”
Simply put, the words and the sword represent a country which desires to impose Islam by force. We may be battling in Afghanistan and Iraq, but the source, the true source of the proliferation of radical Islam (hell, Islam period), is Saudi Arabia. Its petro dollars have funded the spread of Islam all over the world and to date we have not held this gang of thugs accountable. Moreover, Iran is poised to gain nuclear weapons grade materials and also holds tremendous energy reserves. This tag team of terrorists must not be allowed to proliferate this hateful and rediculous brand of mystic malevolence.
President Bush is, in my view, naive when he says that Islam is a peaceful religion which has been hijacked. Frankly, he is simply wrong. Islam is not inherently peaceful, it is inherently violent and absent of human rights. If a citizen comes to you and tells you they are an American Moslem, you must understand that this is incongruent – an oxymoron. Being an American, understanding and embracing philosophically what the idea of America is, verses living under the stated tenets of Islam are practically and intellectually incompatible.
The sooner we deal with the menace of Islam and countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, which spew this evil mysticism, the sooner we will have peace and prosperity around the globe. To the extent we decieve ourselves and live in a state of perpetual delusion about Islam we simply postpone onto our children an inevitable and far more violent conflict.
Appease the lion at your own risk, but sooner or later he will come for you and your mind too.
