There are literally dozens of witchcraft, sorcery [amulets with magical powers...] cases in Saudi Arabia - that are being dealt with as a standard part of law enforcement - i.e. the Saudis accept this stuff as real!!
That in today's modern world - that we could be beholden to this is ridiculous! We are dealing with a medieval mindset!
To be required to respect this - then we are being sold down the river.
In terms of modernity - these guys are straight out of the jungle - straight out of the deepest forest - where we'd normally be happy to talk respect - and non-interference - but clearly their aim is to interfere with us.
Here's how it works the Saudis spend sizable portions of their oil wealth - buying influence in leading western universities - where the message being dispensed - is about tolerance for Islam - on the other side they are laying down serious cash - for these after school madrases across the western world - so that in addition to a western education - which might actually get them a job - kids are being exposed to a completely different Islamic message. In the UK kids are being taught - how best to go about chopping off hands, they are told to make non-Muslims walk around them in the street - all direct teachings from the prophet.
It's like the movie Demolition Man - two men kept in stasis - but one was infused with messages of how to knit - while - the other was taught how to use weapons and kill. It is as though we are becoming that society - we are so surprised - these guys go out and kill - or expect to have their intolerance accepted - because we are both getting two very different messages.
And then you have to ask - for what purpose?
Persia - now Iran was a modern state by comparison when the Arabia took it over - and so must have been Egypt and Syria ... and so the one thing - even with the Saudi belief in amulets with magic spells - they excel at taking over more advanced nations - having never done much of anything real at all - in known history.
