    Default Saudis to Destroy 3 of Worlds Oldest Mosques to Build a Super Mosque

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...y-8228795.html

    Three of the world’s oldest mosques are about to be destroyed as Saudi Arabia embarks on a multi-billion-pound expansion of Islam’s second holiest site. Work on the Masjid an-Nabawi in Medina, where the Prophet Mohamed is buried, will start once the annual Hajj pilgrimage ends next month. When complete, the development will turn the mosque into the world’s largest building, with the capacity for 1.6 million worshippers.
    []
    The Saudis have announced no plans to preserve or move the three mosques, which have existed since the seventh century and are covered by Ottoman-era structures, or to commission archaeological digs before they are pulled down, something that has caused considerable concern among the few academics who are willing to speak out in the deeply authoritarian kingdom.

    I guess they don't have much of a reverence for super old things like we do.

    The key Islamic heritage site, including Prophet Mohammed’s shrine, is to be bulldozed

    We must send our military to intervene. The destruction of historic buildings will not be tolerated.

    Maybe the point is to hide some history?

    No the point is to make money.As it says in the RT article 17 million tourists a year is a lot of money.They have built a public toilet where his first wife's house was.The problem is that the Saudi control almost every Muslim groups from the UK,to Africa,Balkans,Asia and finally middle east.They have a process where they finance huge mosque construction project ( where the local population gets paid to work so they are happy) and in return the imams go to Saudi Arabia to be "trained" or they just send their own imams.

    In my country we have a village with 500 people and 7 enormous mosques and you can be sure not one of them will hear that they build a mall where their prophet grave was.

    Some militias of Al Qaeda have destroyed countless temples dedicated to great teachers of Islam and even some dedicated to Muhammad and his family as they consider idolatry to worship other than Allah

    Its part of the wahhabi doctrine. They've been destroying Islamic history and other kind of history aswell for what they deem as heresies.

    If the damn thing is going to be big enough to fit 1.6 million people, why not just build it to enclose the old ones?

    Are they going to fill the old ones with volunteers wearing bomb vests?
