Andre Vltchek - Saudi Wahabbism Serves Western Imperialism

If only the original communists hadn't banned religion, then the West would not have been able to portray them as agents of the Devil. I guess they saw how the ruling elite had used religion to control the masses. Wahabbism is extreme right wing, religious fascism and I wonder how the Wahhabi clerics believe such hate and violence serves God? Perhaps they are making a ton of money out of it like the extreme right-wing, Christian evangelical  preachers do? Again we read about pure evil driven by the elite. Until a few years back I was naive and never knew that things were this bad.  KV

When the Saudi Crown Prince gave an interview to the Washington Post, declaring that it was actually the West that encouraged his country to spread Wahhabi to all corners of the world, there was a long silence in almost all the mass media outlets in the West, but also in countries such as Egypt and Indonesia.
Those who read the statement expected a determined rebuke from Riyadh. It did not come. The sky did not fall. Lightning did not strike the Prince or the Post.
Clearly, not all that the Crown Prince declared appeared on the pages of the Washington Post, but what actually did, would be enough to bring down entire regimes in such places like Indonesia, Malaysia or Brunei. Or at least it would be enough under ‘normal circumstances’. That is, if the population there was not already hopelessly and thoroughly indoctrinated and programmed, and if the rulers in those countries did not subscribe to, or tolerate, the most aggressive, chauvinistic and ritualistic (as opposed to the intellectual or spiritual) form of the religion.

Reading between the lines, the Saudi Prince suggested that it was actually the West which, while fighting an ‘ideological war’ against the Soviet Union and other socialist countries, handpicked Islam and its ultra-orthodox and radical wing – Wahhabism – as an ally in destroying almost all the progressive, anti-imperialist and egalitarian aspirations in the countries with a Muslim majority.
