Behold the wisdom (despotic logic) of the Saudi cleric, Muhammad al-MunajidTopics: Understanding Islam
Behold the wisdom of Saudi cleric, Muhammad al-Munajid, who also has some thoughts on colored underwear and, er, how to urinate piously:
"The problem is that they want to open a debate on whether Islam is true or not, and on whether Judaism and Christianity are false or not. In other words, they want to open up everything for debate... It begins with freedom of thought, it continues with freedom of speech, and it ends up with freedom of belief."As David Thompson notes (who has the video), Al-Munajid doesn't seem terribly concerned with the numinous, or even with an erratic and spiteful deity named Allah; instead the object of worship is Islam itself - the institution, the power, the license to control.
