Can This Man Change Saudi Arabia’s Brand of Islam and Survive?

Since coming to power, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, or MBS as he is widely known, has been trying to move Saudi Arabia away from Wahhabism, a literal version of Islam that some have compared to the beliefs of The Islamic State.

    There is a basic division of labour in saudi. The house of saud are in charge of most material things and the raving loonies are in charge of islam. No one from either side who has tried to encroach on the other’s turf has ever survived.
    So that leaves only one reasonable inference:
    the “modernization” is a crock for foreign consumption to smooth the path for massive western military cooperation with saudi in smashing the ruling ayatoldjas shias in iran. That is just about the only thing that would cause the saudi sunni fanatics to stifle themselves in the short term. Long term is anybody’s guess.

      The theology of Islam is rotten. There is no reform of it. Only abandonment.

      Absolutely. The tiger (Islam) was let out of the cage and any attempt to rein it in will result in the overthrow of the house of saud.

    Islam is radical by its very nature, it cannot be reformed.

    PR bullshit.

    I don’t believe him.
    He is just sensing that the tide is slowly turning against Islam, and he just wants to weather it.
    A Muslim when persecuted is allowed by sharia to feign friendship with kafirs, live as they do, and even become a pretend-Christian, as long as he remains true to Islam in his heart.
    A kafir believing a true Muslim is playing Russian roulette using a pistol with all chambers loaded.
