    Default Wahhabism ?? What is true ?

    Wahhabism in the United States
    A study conducted by the NGO Freedom House found Wahhabi publications in mosques in the United States. These publications included statements that Muslims should not only "always oppose" infidels "in every way", but "hate them for their religion ... for Allah's sake", that democracy "is responsible for all the horrible wars of the 20th century", and that Shia and certain Sunni Muslims were infidels.[34][35]
    The Saudi government issued a response to this report, stating: "[It has] worked diligently during the last five years to overhaul its education system [but] [o]verhauling an educational system is a massive undertaking... As with previous reports, Freedom House continues to exhibit a disregard for presenting an accurate picture of the reality that exists in Saudi Arabia."[36]
    A review of the study by Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) complained the study cited documents from only a few mosques, arguing most mosques in the U.S. are not under Wahhabi influence.[37] ISPU comments on the study were not entirely negative however, and concluded:
    American-Muslim leaders must thoroughly scrutinize this study. Despite its limitations, the study highlights an ugly undercurrent in modern Islamic discourse that American-Muslims must openly confront. However, in the vigor to expose strains of extremism, we must not forget that open discussion is the best tool to debunk the extremist literature rather than a suppression of First Amendment rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.[37]

    Try it with honey in sour cream/sweet cream mix for a honey-mustard dressing. (Use the powder, rather than the pre-mixed.) Out of this world.

    Will do. Amazing how useful the Politics & Religion Forum has become.

    With beer. That probably goes without saying, but I felt the need to say it.

    It is never out of place to mention the possibility of having a beer.

    Note to r.payton: I didn't mean to trivialize your post. I was just kidding around as I so often do.

    I'm not sure that wahhabism and beer go so well together!

    Spider,
    No problem-i just am having some problems understanding why -if this quote is true-do we keep educating and training people who want to blow us up ? Most terrorists are US educated and we supplied Afghanistan with weapons to fight Russia (of course it was covertly)see Charlie wilson's War-so the Taliban took credit for everything then turned on us.
