I was actually unsure where to post this. It could go in the UPN or Politics forums as well, because THIS IS HUGE. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have been projecting a moderate image for a while, but this is going to raise hell with the Wahabis. This goes way beyond allowing women to drive or allowing theaters to show movies.

quote:
...During the visit earlier this year Riyadh-based Etidal, the Arabic acronym for the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology, discussed with the cardinal its use of media and technology to 'disrupt extremist recruitment and promote tolerance', a government statement said.

'I think we have two enemies: extremism and ignorance,' Tauran was quoted as saying in the statement, while lauding the centre that was established in 2017.

'I don't believe in the clash of civilisation but rather in the clash of ignorance. Most of the time people react because they don't know who you are or who they are.'

Tauran, seen as an energetic promoter of dialogue between the Roman Catholic Church and Islam, also met Saudi King Salman in the capital....

I don't trust this move at all.

The perpetrators of 911 were Saudi. They may be our business partners but they are not our friends. Now, they're playing nice with US and Isreal because they want our support to defeat their Iranian competition.

Nor can we trust the Jesuit false prophet pope who supports socialism and wants to establish a one world religion. While co existence is a laudable goal, Islam is totally incompatible with Christianity or Western culture.

I'm a little suspicious too, but any increase in rights in that kingdom is a good thing. King Salman is telling the hardliners to piss off and, if nothing else, that takes a lot of guts. Saudi kings have been assassinated before, and I assume his bodyguards have been pretty well vetted and trained.
