The Independent of Britain has a headline in today’s paper that we just couldn’t pass up: “Saudi Arabia offers Germany 200 mosques – one for every 100 refugees who arrived last weekend.”
Reading that headline and the accompanying story generated a large guffaw, what today’s generation terms a LOL moment. We look forward in high anticipation to the United States and its European allies bending over backwards to thank the Saudis for their generosity in building these Trojan horses mosques to train future Wahhabi jihadists* in the heart of Europe.
I must assume the Saudi royal house is well versed in the history of the Trojan wars. Surely the Saudis after funding the jihadists that created this human tragedy in the Middle East and Europe have made this offer to the West out of the kindness of their hearts and remorse over what their money has done in both Syria and Iraq. Right? With friends like this we really don’t need any enemies.
“Beware of Greeks Saudis bearing gifts” – indeed, speaking of gifts, if the Saudis are so determined to help Muslim refugees, why don’t they open their palace doors to them? Why don’t they build 200 new mosques in Saudi Arabia? Charity, after all, begins at home. It’s also one of the five pillars of Islam.
There’s an old saying, “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.” But in this case it would be exceedingly wise to look over the Saudi Trojan horse very closely, for not all gift horses are the same. Just ask the Trojans.
