    Oh dear.. guess I was proven wrong. I hope Mecca and Medina aren't affected.
    No, let's hope they do.
    Say protesters assemble in either one of them.
    They'd be virtually untouchable.
    The Saudi government couldn't DREAM of shooting protesters or whatever in the two holy cities.
    And if they did....man....that would be the end of the Muslim world accepting them as the custodians of the places, let alone their own people.

    They said he went to Egypt to meet with his tribe there to get some reinforcement for Gaddafi. (or something like that)
    Yeah, I mistook him with Saif Al Islam ><"
    Because I believed Saif Al Islam was the envoy of Gaddafi, for some reason

    Aljazeera:
    Ahmed Gadhaf al-Dam, one of Gaddafi's top security official and a cousin, defected on Wednesday evening, saying in a statement issued by his Cairo office that he left the country "in protest and to show disagreement" with "grave violations to human rights and human and international laws"


    -Al Jazeera: Libya's Deputy UN ambassador specifically appeals to Brigadiers Mahdi Al Arabi & Mohamed Al Esawi to turn against Gaddafi #Libya
    Note: Brigadier Al Mahdi Al Arabi is the Chief of Staff of the Libyan Army & Brigadier Mohamed Al Esawi headed the Military Court.

    -Al Jazeera anchors now debating with a psychologist if Gaddafi can be excused for his behavior because he is "mentally insane".

    I dont think they would stop. They have done operations with help of other countries special forces inside the holy mosques before too (twice i am not wrong). and both times they killed many people (soldiers, hostages and terrorists/demonstrators).

    and if they did it again... i donno about rest but at-least in south asia it will opposite effect. The blame will be laid on USA. I can already imagine religious "mullahs" delivering sermons that it was US and Jewish lobbies that is causing muslims to fight Muslims and causing bloodshed @ holy sites. and knowing south Asians there is no doubt that it would just erupt in anti-us protests not anti-saudi protests. Its also something to do with how saudi king has been portrayed in media in this part of world. I remember growing up watching hoursssssss long documentaries about how saudi kings are humble down to earth persons who have served Muslim community world wide. Even faced with facts, they wont accept that he can do something horrible.

    Doesn't sound like it will change much tbh.. at least the Arab world will not have beef with us.

    Isn't Pakistan the country that least likes the US on average? (second place being Serbia of course).

    Bah, I didn't quite get what was going on the first time.

    Yeah, the United States' disapproval rating is extremely high in Pakistan; around 80% in 2009 looks like. Things have changed quite a bit in recent years though; since 2008, the United States has had about a forty point jump in its favorability rating in Egypt for instance. Of course, that still only put us about at about fifty percent approval and it's dropped back down since then.

    On the opposite side of the spectrum, Albania absolutely loves the United States. Woodrow used to be a fairly popular name there because of Wilson's involvement in creating it as an independent state.

    Hidden:

    hiding it since its not directly related thread.

    I wasn't just talking about Pakistan but about South Asians in general (Pakistan, Indian Muslims, Bangladesh) and yes agreed about Pakistanis not liking US.

    But whatever happens, any uprising in Saudi Arabia will have more effect than anything so far. Fingers crossed for march 11.

    It must be really awkward for Bosniaks and Albanians when they go to Mecca for the hadj and have to cough and turn their heads whenever the topic of the US comes up lol.

    I went to school with a hot Bosniak chick and a cool Albanian dude with a funny name, refugees own.

    Welcome to America! The only Serbs here are genius inventors who don't really care about irredentistic ethnic cleansing.

    Right?

    If I recall correctly, Bush's approval rating in Albania was close to ninety percent when he left office or almost four and a half times what it was here. I'm surprised that the guy hasn't already moved there and ran for President.

    Listening to NPR.
    One of the correspondents is now in a middle of an attack.
    Also, speaking as someone who loves his Czech grandpa (now deceased), JD, what the fuck xenophobic bullshit are you spouting about Czechs you mafioso bastard?
    I mean, seriously, I know you were joking at first and I just wanted to avoid drama, but not it's just getting fucking stale and you need to shut the fuck up when you speak shit like that in front of member who's trying to connect with family over there.
    Jesus. There's a running gag and then there was....that!
    And no, I don't give a shit that you know more about that area than me.

    Slavs, like the Canadians, make me desire to punch the nearest small animal.

    I'm not entirely sure why, though.

    Don't get the muslim world wrong, the large majority of us recognize the need for muslim countries' rulers to get their acts straight or get the hell out.

    Hell, it boggles my mind to think of the ridiculous things that muslim rulers do and continue to do given the severe warnings clearly outlined in the Quran and Hadith for the unjust ruler. In the past, honourable rulers of the ummah would be so selfless that they would live a meager living, the same as his fellow people.
    They were so careful in their actions and judgments because they feared to disobey the laws of God and to be an unjust ruler.
    Now we have these pathetic men.. -_-

    But I digress, whoever starts a protest or riot in Mecca or Medina will be out of their effing mind. Mecca and Medina are not the place to start crap like that. Millions of people all over the world spend their lives wishing to place their feet in those cities, thousands have written in their wills that they want their funerals to take place in the Grand Mosque of Mecca.
    A few billion hearts are connected to those cities.

    No matter what kind of muslim a person is, even one "born into the religion" and doesn't know much about Islam at all, even those corrupted leaders, we all know: you don't start trouble there.

    If something happens there, trust me, you will see an explosion of protests in the world unlike anything you could ever imagine.
