It’s not a big surprise, since the organization is based in Saudi Arabia.
Continuing the hysterical overreaction of the Saudi regime to a Canadian tweet, the Saudi-based Muslim World League sided with the Saudi regime and condemned Canada.
As noted by ArabNews.com (which pushes Saudi state propaganda), the Muslim World League issued a statement which said in part “the Kingdom was governed by its constitution, regulations and legal processes which were widely known, much like the legal systems of other countries.”
“It stressed Saudi Arabia’s right to take a firm stand towards the “outrageous and unprecedented diplomatic failure,” of Canada. Saudi Arabia, the statement added, was characterized by the enforcement of Islamic law, and that it was wrong for people to compromise this.”
Of course, ‘Islamic Law’ in Saudi Arabia has meant the horrendous mistreatment of women, religious minorities (Christians can be jailed and even tortured for trying to spread Christianity) and any independent-minded people in the country.
There is quite an irony in all of this, as Justin Trudeau has demonized anyone who criticizes Islamism, yet a ruthless Islamist dictatorship is now condemning Canada. Perhaps Trudeau and the Liberals will start waking up to the fact that Western Values and Islamist extremism are diametrically opposed forces and cannot be reconciled.
