American Muslims Protest at Saudi Embassy to Denounce Terrorism

from via PRNewswire

Al-Baqee is organizing American Muslims to march against a fatwa (creed) issued by Wahhabi Mufties (religious figures) calling for the destruction of Holy Shrines in Iraq and Syria. The protest will be in front of The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington D.C. from 1-4 p.m. on Monday October 22, 2007 ... Similar calls for destruction are responsible for the bombings of the Al-Askariyya Shrine in Samarra, Iraq twice last year, in which hundreds of civilians were killed. Such radicalism is present in Saudi Arabia and is also responsible for the destruction of the Jannat-ul-Baqee cemetery in Madina, Saudi Arabia on April 21, 1925, where several companions and family members of the Prophet are buried ... Al-Baqee calls upon the Saudi Govt. for the restoration and preservation of Islamic Holy Sites (i.e. Jannat-ul-Baqee) and encourages Saudi government to use its influence to restrain Wahhabi rhetoric that is fueling much destruction around the world.
