    Hajj cleric warns Muslim youth
    Pilgrimage reaches climax
    Wednesday, January 19, 2005 Posted: 9:09 AM EST (1409 GMT)

    MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- Raising their hands to the sky, about 2 million Muslim pilgrims prayed for salvation Wednesday at Mount Arafat, where Saudi Arabia's top cleric said the greatest test for the nation of Islam comes from its sons who are "lured by the devil," a reference to violent Muslim militants.

    Many pilgrims' eyes welled with tears as they prayed on the most critical day of the hajj, the annual pilgrimage the faithful believe will wipe away their sins.

    While speaking at a mosque on the plain of Mount Arafat, Sheik Abdul-Aziz al-Sheik, the kingdom's grand mufti, referred to the violent campaign waged by Muslim militants affiliated with the al Qaeda terror network against targets in the kingdom, attacks Saudi authorities have been battling the past two years.

    Al-Sheik said the greatest test for the Muslim nation is its own sons gone astray, and he warned them not to be used by enemies of the nation to weaken it.

    "The greatest affliction to strike the nation of Islam came from some of its own sons, who were lured by the devil," he said. "They have called the nation infidel, they have shed protected blood and they have spread vice on earth, with explosions and destruction and killing of innocents."

    Actually this Sheik has been speaking out against terrorism for quite a while, especially since attacks in Saudi Arabia.

    However, reading these stories of him very carefully I get the impression he is more concerned about attacks in Islamic nations than over here in the land of "enemies of god". Seems like he has no problem with attacks against coalition forces, but abhors the collateral damage muslims are inflicting on each other as well as the enemy. Also he abhors killing of non-muslims given sanctuary in their lands. But I get the impression he's all for folks going to attack the coalition in Iraq.

    Say it ain't so. Orang would NEVER post such an underhanded topic as such to prove a point!

    I am not surprised at all, trout, by your links. I tend to agree.
