What do they say? Charity starts at home?

It's the Saudis who ban other religions. It's Muslims that call for the destruction of Israel and who riot when they see cartoons they don't like. It's Muslims who try to curtail free speech by filing complaints with human rights commissions.

Let's see if the King puts his money where his mouth is.

Saudi king appeals for tolerance

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has called on followers of the world's main religions to turn away from extremism and embrace a spirit of reconciliation.

The king was opening a conference in Madrid which brings together Muslims, Christians, Jews and Buddhists.

He said the great conflicts of history were not caused by religion, but by the misinterpretation of religion.

King Juan Carlos of Spain, the co-host, said Spain had always sought to promote international dialogue.

Critics have dismissed the gathering as a propaganda gimmick by the Saudis who, they say, are not best placed to host a meeting on religious tolerance...

TOLERANCE


That from one of the most intolerant nations on earth!

Were Hindus not invited? We know what Islamic clerics says about Hindus...and it's not very 'tolerant'...

I agree - his campaign ought to start at home. Can foreigners working in Saudi Arabia now display their religious symbols/activities in public?

If his majesty really believes in this cause - let's see him spearhead the dismantling of the all pervasive anti-semitic culture in the Islamic world. He can start with Iran - before Iranians attack Israel - based on this irrational anti-semitic hatred.

I don't want to knock him for trying but it would help a lot if the Saudis stopped funding extremist Wahhabi schools all over the world...
