Saudi Arabia: The land where Christians can’t bring their Bibles, and where conversion to any religion from Islam can earn a death sentence. They’re going to complain to Europe about Muslims’ lack of religious freedom there.

Seriously.

RIYADH, 4 October 2007 — Saudi Arabia’s Human Rights Commission (HRC) will urge its counterparts in the European Union to ask their governments not to link terrorism to Islam and also to issue regulations to protect Muslims from prejudice and discrimination because of their faith.

According to a source at HRC, the government-funded rights body will also address various human rights issues in Europe: when Muslims are unjustly interrogated, treated with disrespect, physically or mentally abused, or not allowed to practice their faith freely such as Muslim girls being prevented from wearing the hijab (head cover) in some schools.

The country where this sign adorns a major highway in its holiest city:

Is going to lecture others about religious freedom.

The country that doesn’t allow Christians to build churches at all is going to lecture others about religious freedom. The country with the frickin Sword of Allah on its flag is going to make noise about European religious tolerance. The country that gave us Osama bin Laden and 15 of the 19 9-11 hijackers, who killed 3,000 of us in the name of Allah, is really going to complain about the freedom of Muslims in Europe.

Seriously?

There’s a word for an attitude like this: Chutzpah.

Update:
Oxymoron of the day: The “Saudi Arabian Human Rights Commission.”
