Crown prince says Saudis want return to moderate Islam

He told reporters that 70% of the Saudi population was under 30 and that they wanted a “life in which our religion translates to tolerance”.

The prince vowed to “eradicate the remnants of extremism very soon”.

    Interesting that he linked the strict ideology to the mullahs overthrowing the Shaw (Iran).
    I hope he’s sincere and I wish him the best of luck; he’s going up against pretty entrenched zealots.
    If I were him it’d be the old 4:00AM purge/ raid tactic.

      Muslims are incredibly savvy and manipulative, so this is definitely some kind of tactic to manipulate us into accepting Islam. Muslims are seeing some (albeit trivial) resistance to the hijrah and spread of Islam with the election of some more “conservative” politicians like Trump (although in reality not Trump) and others in Europe, especiallly Austria, Poland and Hungary so they are shifting gears with this new B.S. taqiyya PR campaign. All this Saudi talk of moderate Islam is nonsense and totally meaningless!

    Any purge of the Wahhabi establishment and replacement with, say, Sufism is bound to improve the quality of life in the kingdom.

    I’ll believe it when I see results, not before.

      I believe the esteemed President, Donald Trump, might have something to do with this as well.

      He got scared by calls from ISIS to overthrow the kingdom. Not too sure how many Saudis are ready to respond to the call.
