Saudis Release 700 "Reformed" al Qaeda
I'm not sure which is scarier? Saudi Arabia trying to "correct" the thinking of those they disagree with or Saudi Arabia releasing al Qaeda sympathizers after they have been "corrected".Reuters:
Saudi Arabia has released over 700 suspected militants after clerics "corrected" their thinking in a special programme aimed at stemming a three-year-old campaign of violence by al Qaeda, officials said. "They are sympathisers. There are many of this kind of people, who are subject to the process of an advisory committee. Hundreds of them have gone through this and been released," Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki said... Fifi said he did not blame Saudi Arabia's controversial educational curriculum which foreign rights groups and Western governments have said promote extremism.... "The curriculum is not to blame since we've had it for over 30 years. The problem is some of the teachers," Fifi said.The teachers are to blame. Right. Not a government which outlaws all other religions but Islam. And these people consider themselves moderates. Hell, is there any one who doesn't consider themselves a moderate? Remember, bin Laden thinks of himself as a moderate and is said to have accused Zarqawi of being an extremist. Hat tip: Infovlad.
