MUSLIM vs MUSLIM: THE TRUE STORY OF RADICAL ISLAM'S INTOLERANCE TOWARD MODERATES

"What goes largely unreported is the fact that Muslims have been attacking, desecrating, and destroying their own mosques, shrines and holy sites."

"The destruction of the birthplace of the Prophet was mentioned in the Saudi newspaper al-Bilad in May, just as Muslims around the world were outraged over media reports of American "desecration" of Muslim sites in Iraq.

So obsessed were the media with American "desecration" that reporters failed to perceive a bigger picture at play: the expanding influence of Wahhabist fundamentalism in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, via the destruction of holy sites and artifacts, and what that means for the world."
