Although Afghanistan is not Saudi Arabia, it’s dear to Saudi hearts, because so many of our young men used to go to there to do “internships” with the Taliban. It was a sort of “wet dream” for the ultra-Wahabbi long-beards who thought that Saudi Arabia was “going soft”. They could go over there, be really nasty to women, shout at men whose beards were too short, imprison soccer players for wearing shorts, the opportunities were limitless. It was Disneyland for Muslim zealots. Alas, no more.
It was also an opportunity for a practical demonstration of Islamic theology. You see, we don’t believe in idols, so there are no idols in Islam. That’s right, we don’t worship idols. And when we say, as we have been saying a lot recently, “A Muslim should love Mohammad (PBUH) more than his own family”, that isn’t idolatry. Oh no. We are not worshipping Mohammad (PBUH) like some sort of idol. You do see the difference, don’t you? Well, if you don’t, I’m sorry, but I don’t have time to explain that to you right now. Just take my word for it.
Anyway, not only do we not believe in Islamic idols, we also don’t believe in your idols in your religion either. So when we can get our hands on them, we blow up your idols. Especially if they are seventeen centuries old. No matter that they are world cultural treasures. It’s actually for your own good. Call it tough love.
