No religion is going to make the world a bad place. People make places bad.

Freedom House rated the kingdom at the bottom in terms of both civil liberties and political rights. Purported “antiterrorism” legislation allowed the “authorities to press terrorism charges against anyone who demands reform, exposes corruption or otherwise engages in dissent.”

15 of the terrorists who flew into the WTC were from Saudi Arabia, 1 from Egypt and 1 from Lebanon. Bin Ladin was from the royal family of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is a guilty of sponsoring and supporting terrorism and getting away with it.

One day you find alternative energy, and you bring the world to yourself. Science has given you the ability to avoid depending on places that spread versions of extremism and terrorism.

Want to stop ISIS and extremists in six months? Put harsh sanctions on Saudi Oil until the"kingdom" eradicates the extremists. The only thing they like more than radical Islam is their gold.

More arsonist than anything else.... especially with wahabism and the spread of intolerance to every part of the islamic world. Not a single thing that's true Islam is preached, but rather, a unique version that's completely out of sync with modern times and true faith.

If you are not aware of this simple fact,then you all are living in a fool's paradise.Saudis 're the brainchild and the low caste Hindoo converts of South Asia,Pakis are the tools of terrorism in the whole world.There are good Muslims but they are too scared of these two.I have personally worked with the Kurds and they are the best Muslims.

The issue isn't the Muslim people. It's the Islamic extremists. While on a business trip I met a group of Muslim men. They, like other normal people, believe in their faith but do not take the teachings as literal.

This is such a one sided statement that it is almost offensive. Practicing what you believe in does not make you militant or dangerous. There are hundred of thousands militant people in the US and we are not considered dangerous. We kill more people than anyone.

How does a religion make the world a dangerous place? The above statement makes no sense. It should be do extremist in said region make the world dangerous. Not the religion.

This is a ridiculous post. I don't see how a country's religious tradition is dangerous. The terrorist are all over the middle east. They make things dangerous.

There are groups within any country that seem to make them more dangerous but you cannot blame the country. I will say I do not think there are hundreds of groups in the US. They have their problems but that number is just way to high. You should also rethink what the world would look like if the US did not help out around the world?

There is much bad to say about Tehran’s authoritarian and interventionist Islamic regime. But even worse is Saudi Arabia, considered by Washington to be a valued ally and partner.
