The Saudi regime uses religion to serve politics

The Fox News network highlighted the Saudi regime’s use of religion to serve politics, including its attempts to dilute Islam and sacrifice its principles for the so-called interfaith projects.

In its report, the network dealt with what the Secretary of the Muslim World League, Muhammad Al-Issa, represented as a facade for the Saudi regime to whitewash its image under the allegations of reforming religion and using it to serve international politics.

The agency quoted Muhammad Al-Issa saying that holding talks with Jewish, Christian and Catholic religious leaders is very important, but that the Muslim World League wants to do more global and large-scale projects with various other religions and countries.

The network noted that Saudi Arabia has long been a haven for human rights violations, including violent punishment of religious minorities and activists.

Al-Issa was appointed Minister of Justice by King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in 2009. He worked on the Court of Grievances – a judicial body that arbitrates religious and political crimes.

Al-Issa’s tenure as a minister witnessed a rise in the number of executions.

After leaving office in 2015, Al-Issa moved to the Muslim World League, where he currently serves as its president.

However, the Muslim World League is not entirely separate from the government. The organization was founded in 1962 by Crown Prince Faisal bin Abdulaziz. Headquartered outside Mecca, the Kingdom continues to be a major benefactor.

Al-Issa claims that his tenure as Secretary-General has been focused on breaking entrenched divisions and introducing tangible changes.

“We have long recognized the vital friendship and respect between the Muslim and Jewish faiths,” he says.

“I made a groundbreaking trip to Auschwitz in 2020 where I and a distinguished delegation of Muslim scholars remembered the terrible crimes committed against the Jewish population during World War II,” he continues.

“I knew this obligation, to openly dispute entrenched narratives of division and solidarity with my Jewish counterparts, would establish a new precedent and bring tangible progress in relations between Muslim and Jewish religious leaders.”

Last September, the Muslim World League of the Saudi regime recorded a new resounding fall to perpetuate the fact that it is the Kingdom’s tool for normalization and the latest alliance with the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.

The association, led by a former senior official in the Saudi regime, announced that it had signed an exceptional partnership agreement with the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change to bring together the visions of the two institutions.

The association indicated that it would work with Blair over the next three years to provide a global program to provide 100,000 young people between the ages of 13-and 17 with thinking and critical skills in 18 countries to meet the challenges of future opportunities its description.

Through networks of schools and education partners worldwide, the program will also work to train more than 2,400 teachers in “dialogue skills such as critical thinking, active listening, and global communication” to impart these skills to their students. Thus the program will build greater mutual understanding, tolerance and trust between Young people and their societies and correct perceptions of religious and cultural diversity.

Tweeters criticized the agreement and said that yesterday Blair attacked the Islamic world. Today the League signed with him the McCalpin Agreement by changing its name to suit its Zionist anti-Islam orientation.

One of the most hated Arab and Islamic Western officials, Blair, attacked what he called “Islamic radicalism”, pointing out that it is the first security threat to Europe with the upcoming anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The head of the Muslim World League, and former minister in the Saudi regime, Muhammad Al-Issa, repeatedly promoted dialogue with the Jews and normalization with Israel.

During a conference organized by the American Jewish Committee (AJC), Al-Issa said on issues of Judaism and combating anti-Semitism, “We, Al Saud, are currently obligated to restore bridges of dialogue and construction with the Jewish community.”

During the conference, the committee presented Al-Issa with a prize for allegedly appreciating his role in combating anti-Semitism.

Al-Issa claimed that “while Jews and Arabs have lived side by side for centuries, it is sad that we have moved away from each other in recent decades. Some try to falsify history, who claim that the Holocaust, the most terrible crime in our human history, is a figment of the imagination.”

He continued: “We stand against these liars, and I always stood by my Jewish brothers and said: This will never happen again, God willing, not to the Jews, not Muslims, or Christians.”

Al-Issa spoke with the participation of Jewish personalities about the most prominent issues facing the Jewish people and Israel’s endeavour to spread international peace and security, and the issue of anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred.
