In demolishing the pillar marking the spot where the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) left on the “night journey,” the Saudis are joining the Zionists in rejecting the tolerant, inclusive, spiritual, universal qualities of Islam. They are expressing a characteristically rigid and narrow-minded Wahabi 'orthodoxy' which dreams of destroying the entire history and culture of Islam – and the people who don't see things exactly the way they do."

According to recent reports, the last remaining historic sections of the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca have been demolished. (The Masjid al-Haram is the mosque housing the Ka'aba, toward which all Muslims turn to pray.)


According to the London Independent, the Saudis have even ripped down the column marking the spot where the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) began his miraculous “night journey” to al-Quds (Jerusalem) and to the heavens. There are reports that the Saudi religious police actually celebrated the destruction!

The location in al-Quds Jerusalem) associated with the “night journey” is commemorated by the al-Aqsa mosque and its Dome of the Rock. That site, too, is threatened. Abdulazeem Salhab, chairman of the Islamic Waqf council in occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem), said earlier this year that Israeli excavations beneath the site, which are undermining its foundations, continue despite protests from around the world.

Why are the Saudis and the Israelis working together to destroy the two monuments associated with the “night journey”?

The Israeli Zionists have obvious motives. First, they want to erase the Islamic heritage of Palestine, which has been a Muslim country and an Islamically-administered holy land for almost 1,300 years. The Zionists, who massacred and expelled the Muslim, Christian, and even many Jewish Palestinians in 1948, are systematically uprooting and destroying Palestine's history and heritage to clear the ground for their racist settler colony.

But the Masjid al-Aqsa, with its Dome on the Rock, is not just any historic building. It is the greatest and incomparably most important Islamic architectural monument in the world. For although Muslims pray in the direction of the Ka'aba in Mecca, and make pilgrimage to that city, it is the Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem that symbolizes Islam's status as the culmination of prophecy - the one true universal faith of mankind, incorporating and superseding earlier prophetic revelations whose followers must be protected under the Islamic dispensation.

The Masjid al-Aqsa, built on the site from which the Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) ascended through the heavens, symbolizes Islam's spirituality and universality. During his night journey, the Prophet met earlier prophets including Moses and Jesus. The Dome on the Rock, like the story of the “night journey,” symbolizes Islam's status as a universal faith that honors the earlier prophets and protects their followers. It is this symbolism of religious tolerance and unity under the one true God that is apparently unacceptable to both Zionists and Wahhabis.

The Zionists have been scheming to destroy the Masjid al-Aqsa, and build a simulacrum of an ancient Hebrew temple in which to conduct blood sacrifices, ever since they launched their invasion of Palestine a century ago. Though Zionists claim to worship the same God as Christians and Muslims, a high proportion of Zionists are atheists; most of the rest seem to believe that God is a mere tribal idol of the Zionist people rather than the universal creator and impartial dispenser of justice. (Their whole claim to Palestine is based on an alleged 3,000-year-old divine real estate deed!) To such Zionists, Islam's tolerance and universality are anathema. No wonder they hate the Masjid al-Aqsa and everything it symbolizes.

The Saudi Wahabis, for their part, despise tolerance, universality and spirituality almost as much as the Zionists do. The “takfiri” Wahhabis condemn all non-Muslims, and many Muslims as well, as despicable “kaffirs” whose blood can be legitimately shed. In practice, though, they not only honor and revere the worst of the non-Muslims, but go so far as to hand them the keys to the Kingdom's vast oil wealth.

The Western usury-based banking system, dominated by the Rothschilds - the founding family of Israel - has been propped up by Saudi oil money since 1970. That is the year that Henry Kissinger took the Rothschild Federal Reserve dollar off of the gold standard, and made it a Saudi-backed petrodollar.

In demolishing the pillar marking the spot where the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) left on the “night journey,” the Saudis are joining the Zionists in rejecting the tolerant, inclusive, spiritual, universal qualities of Islam. They are expressing a characteristically rigid and narrow-minded Wahhabi “orthodoxy” which dreams of destroying the entire history and culture of Islam - and the people who don't see things exactly the way they do.

Is this Saudi war on Islam's heritage engineered by the Zionists? Some claim that the Saudi royal family is actually descended from the heretical Zionist “donmeh” - the secret followers of the Zionist false prophet Shabbeti Zevi, who profess Islam in public but practice orgies and other abominations in private. If true, this would explain the behavior of Saudi princes on their notorious gambling junkets. It would explain why the Saudis are propping up the Rothschild-based New World Order. It would explain why the Saudis are assisting the Zionist takeover of Palestine. And it would explain why the Saudis, like the Zionists, are bulldozing Islam's history and tradition - especially those parts, such as the monuments of the “Night Journey,” that symbolize Islam's spiritual universality.

This destruction of Muslims' heritage is part of the Zionist New World Order's attempt to destroy everyone's heritage. The traditional identity of the United States, for example, has been systematically undermined by the Rothschild-funded Zionist lobby, which has opened the doors to mass immigration, waged a media war against traditional American identity and morality, denatured the American currency and economy, launched a war on the American middle class, and demolished the US Constitution in a series of actions culminating in the 9/11 coup d'état.

Some believe that the two biggest obstacles in the path of the New World Order are the Islamic ummah and the American middle class. Why? Because Muslims cling tenaciously to traditional values, oppose Zionism, and loathe usury; while the American middle class is the only cohesive group on earth with enough education, economic power, and determination to remain free to potentially stop the impending global dictatorship.

The American and Islamic peoples ought to unite against the Zionists and their Saudi proxies, and stop the New World Order in its tracks. The chief obstacle to this united front against the New World Order, unfortunately, is the American people's Islamophobia - the well-planned result of the psychological operation of September 11th, 2001. That is why the best way to stop the New World Order is to work to expose the truth about 9/11.
