Spanish justice minister stands up Islamists.
While Bush focuses on the “tearists” in Iraq he is constantly sucking up to the Saudis. But some of the most persistent organizers of radical Islam in the world are Saudi Wahhabis or Salafists. Salafism was a minor sect in Islam until two things happened. One was the Salafist Saudi family took over in Saudi Arabia and two was that oil was discovered giving them billions of dollars to spread their extremist ideas. Today the Saudi regime is pouring billions into spread of Salafist extremism to mosques around the world. It is no accident that 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were Saudi.
Considering the role Saudi Salafism has had in radicalizing modern Islam you would think that the great (sic) opponent of Islamist terrorism, George Bush, would stand up to these people. Of course not! Instead he was seen literally walking hand in hand, like lovers, with a Saudi official.
In light of Bush’s constant appeasement to the true funders of Islamic extremism it was nice to see a Western official stand up to the Saudi puritans. Spain’s justice minister was to speak on the globalisation of terrorism at Al-Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud Islamic University, which Al-Jazeera describes as “the academic heart of Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabi Islam.”
Female journalists from Spain wanted to cover the event but being inferior woman, as the Wahhabis would see it, they were banned. They were even wearing the black abaya and veil so as not to offend the Puritanical obsession of the Wahhabis. But nothing could change their gender and the problem is that women are simply inferior according to Wahhabis and banned for the university.
The Spanish delegation was only told on Sunday night that women would be prevented from entering the meeting on Monday. Spain’s justice minister Juan Fernando Lopez Aguilar was told that females would be banned so he packed his bags and left. He left printed copies of his speech but he went home. Gee, a justice minister who stands up for justice. How refreshing to Americans who are used to an Attorney General who destroys Constitutional rights.
No doubt Dinesh D’Souza will be outraged that the moral values of Islamists were insulted and that the Lopez Aquilar was engaging in “cultural imperialism”. This is another example of how “the cultural Left” is working to destroy D’Souza’s much desired alliance between the Religious Right and the Islamists. Yes, folks, Dinesh gets to be an enter season of The Twilight Zone all by himself. No doubt Dinesh the Appeaser will use this to promote his book -- somebody has to pay that massive house.
