At least he doesn't try to sell chicken sandwiches...

Saudi cleric Salman Al-Ouda, "a well-known scholar revered by millions globally", gave an interview recently in which he spoke of Jews and their "role... to wreak destruction, to wage war, and to practice deception and extortion."

From the Free Beacon:

Al-Odeh ranted about the use of human blood in Jewish religious rituals, a notorious anti-Semitic smear commonly referred to as a “blood libel.” 
“It is well known that the Jews celebrate several holidays, one of which is the Passover, or the matzos holiday,” he said. 
“I read once about a doctor who was working in a laboratory. This doctor lived with a Jewish family. One day, they said to him: ‘We want blood. Get us some human blood,’” Al-Odeh explained. 
“He was confused. He didn’t know what this was all about,” Al-Odeh says as the interviewer nods along. “He found that they were making matzos with human blood. They eat it, believing that this brings them close to their false god, Yahweh.” 
Jewish people “would lure a child in order to sacrifice him in the religious rite that they perform during that holiday,” Al-Odeh adds. 
The prominent Saudi Cleric also believes that the Holocaust “has been turned into a myth of tremendous proportions.”

Al-Ouda is a fringe nut, right? From his Wikipedia page:

Al-Ouda is a member of the International Union for Muslim Scholars and on its Board of Trustees.[1] He is a director of the Arabic edition of the website Islam Today and appears on a number of TV shows and authors newspaper articles.[2]

He received his Masters degree in the Sunnah and its sciences from the faculty of `Usûl al-Dîn (Principles of Religion). HisMasters thesis was entitled “The Strangeness of Islam and its Legal Rulings in the Light of the Prophetic Sunnah.”
He also received his Phd degree in 2003. His Phd was in the Sunnah.
Education: Imam Muhammad bin Sa’ud University, B.A., M.A., Ph.D., Islamic jurisprudence

Well, he obviously isn't one of the Muslim scholars who preaches peaceful co-existence among religions. Oh... from his Wikipedia page:

Al-Ouda has stated that he is currently supporting peace and coexistence with other religions. He announced that this was a result of deeper understanding of Islamic teachings.
Dr. al-Ouda is in charge of the popular website Islam Today, which offers a wide variety of subject matter and material. He gives classes and lectures over the Internet and by phone to a wide range of listeners.[6]
He works daily in answering the questions that people send to him in addition to compiling and preparing a number of his writings for publication. He used to have a show on MBC TV.[7]
His fame had become sufficiently widespread by 2006 to draw a crowd of around 20,000 young British Muslims in London's East End whom he addressed in a speech. "Dr. al-Ouda is well known by all the youth. It's almost a celebrity culture out there," according to one British Imam. Sheikh Salman has over 4,000 Facebook friends and over One million fans through the site.[8]
So he 'supports peace and coexistence with other religions' and is a celebrity among Muslim youth in London.

And he believes that Jews use the blood of children to make matzo.


These guys can build mosques in lefty cities like Boston and Chicago, and the lefty mayors chip in a few million bucks of public money to help them out.

But a Christian who believes that marriage is between a man and a woman tries to open a chicken restaurant and he is threatened by public officials with banishment and with immolation of his Constitutional right to freedom of speech.

The left is an odd crew. They group-hug 21st century Nazis, and strain at Christian gnats.

When folks do inconsistent things like this, it's because they have an unspoken agenda.

In this case, the agenda is obvious. The left hates Christianity, no less than Muslim cleric Salman Al-Ouda hates Jews. 


  1. Al-Ouda and the Republican party have one thing in common: they both don't like the Jews.

  2. KW,

    The atheists are now posting a billboard in Charlotte with an anti-Mormon message.

    Magic Underwear
    Baptizes Dead People
    Big Money, Big Bigotry
    Atheism: Simply reasonable."

    I'm supposed to believe that that's not a potshot at Mitt Romney's religion.

    Now I want you to make an equivalent billboard that is anti-Muslim. Post it at the RNC convention, or perhaps in a community with a large Muslim population. Dearborne, Michigan would do.


    1. Oh, you mean like this one? Or maybe it doesn't count because you can't read Arabic? You can drop the whole "you only pick on Christians" shit because it, like your religion, is a myth.

    2. It's hard for me to express an "I stick it to all religions equally" message, TRISH, because I don't actually go out and try to prevent anyone from worshiping freely if they so choose. But when asked by religious or non religious friends for my opinion I'm no less critical of different faiths though for very different reasons. I genuinely think they do more harm to society, they set us back and keep us afraid of each others' differences. The dangers of taking any allegorical literature or our first attempts to explain the cosmos and the natural world literally in the 21st century should be self evidently silly. But as for burning books, I'd never do it. I don't believe in censorship and I do think we should freely discuss their content, if only to educate people on how civilization has developed.

      First Time Caller (calling again)

    3. I still don't see atheists taunting the Muslims quite as much.

      1. Muslims are a small minority in the U.S. They don't influence policy, and they aren't able to get their batshit crazy ideas into policy. At least not yet.

      2. You probably don't notice because you aren't paying attention. It doesn't affect you in any way, and besides, noticing would mean you'd have to put your faux put-upon martyr act aside.

      3. Large numbers of Christians don't see Mormons as Christians to begin with, so I suspect you are only lumping them in with your group so you can continue with the faux outrage.
