“The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has declared that it is ‘necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.’”
Earlier this month, news reports surfaced out of Saudi Arabia that raised the red flag for Christians.
Todd Nettleton, a spokesman for Voice of the Martyrs USA, says:
”The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia—the top Islamic official in the country of Saudi Arabia—has declared that it is ‘necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.’”
Nettleton goes on to note that the report hasn’t surfaced anywhere except on the Council on Foreign Relations Web site, which was then picked up by The Atlantic.
As Saudi Arabia is ranked second on the Open Doors World Watch List (a compilation of the 50 countries where persecution of Christians is most severe), the news is not really a surprise.
There is no provision for religious freedom in the constitution of this Islamic kingdom.
All citizens must adhere to Islam, and conversion to another religion is punishable by death.
Public Christian worship is forbidden; worshippers risk imprisonment, lashing, deportation and torture. Evangelizing Muslims and distributing non-Islamic materials is illegal.
Muslims who convert to Christianity risk being subjected to honor killings, and foreign Christian workers have been exposed to abuse from employers.

Barack Hussein Obama has great respect for the Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
One of the first thing he did, after becoming the Commander in chief of the USA, was bowing before the Islamic king.
The head of all American generals, traveled to Riyadh to receive an Islamic medal of honor. Their own son had returned home.
It is therefor strange that a lot of Christians in the Western world, hail Obama as a “Christian”.
Do they also desire this kind of medal around their neck?
Many claimed to be Christians, take pleasure in men of lawlessness. They simply honor Jesus with their lips, but their heart is fare away from Him. They serve in assemblies of the wicked, and refuse to listen to brethren who have received the gift of discernment.
Jesus the Messiah has given us all a warning. Not all who say “Lord, Lord”, shall enter the kingdom of heaven. And even His people will perish, because of the lack of knowledge.
People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish.
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.
Be wise. Do not participate in the evil of Mr. Obama and his Saudi king.
