Asked about the Saudi-funded spread of Wahhabism, the austere faith that is dominant in the kingdom and that some have accused of being a source of global terrorism, Mohammed said that investments in mosques and madrassas overseas were rooted in the Cold War, when allies asked Saudi Arabia to use its resources to prevent inroads in Muslim countries by the Soviet Union.Successive Saudi governments lost track of the effort, he said, and now “we have to get it all back.” Funding now comes largely from Saudi-based “foundations,” he said, rather than from the government.
I wonder what thousands of innocent victims of 9/11 and their families would have thought about that. What about thousands of US servicemen killed or tens of thousands of them maimed and scarred for life. What about millions of people in Middle East killed, maimed, displaced and desperate? Nah, no worry--those were and are "good" terrorists and jihadists--they all stand for democracy.
