Terrorism in the Grand Mosque
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 03 - 07 - 2017

EVERY time the world believes that terrorist groups have reached the bottom point of criminality, a new incident comes up to prove that they are capable of falling to unprecedented low levels.
This is exactly what happened when a terrorist suicide attack was thwarted near the Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Grand Mosque) in Makkah on the eve of the last nights of the holy month of Ramadan. The attack took place at the holiest place and at the holiest time, yet, all this did not deter the terrorists from carrying out their dirty and criminal activity.
To continue to treat such groups as "stray" groups that have lost their way or that these groups have "good intentions" but are "brain-washed," is an essential part of the problem because the subject is not a single individual case.
The continued acceptance of the armed groups brandishing their weapons and carrying out assaults against others while raising religious slogans in the presence of the state and its institutions is bewildering. In fact these groups must be treated as religious outcast for causing agony to the society and disturbing social peace and tranquility. And what applies to the organizations like Daesh (the so-called IS) and Al-Qaeda, should also apply to the likes of Hezbollah, which brandish their weapons under the eyes of the government they are opposing and the latter is unable to do anything.
The same applies to the organization of the Popular Mobilization Forces and the organization of the Houthis in Iraq and Yemen separately.
"Terrorism has no religion" is a beautiful and catchy slogan presented by various media groups in the Arab world, but unfortunately, this slogan has not translated into a real and practical application.
The terrorist groups emerging from the framework of the states revolted and raised false religious slogans from all directions have still been dealt with patience for a long time. This patience is not natural and it is puzzling and then we wonder why the world points its finger to our world and claims that we are lacking in our efforts to carry out our responsibilities.
These monsters must be eliminated!
The problem is that the Arab world has not realized that these groups have long been present among us. They do not threaten the West but they threaten the people of the region. They will continue to recruit young people and obtain financial resources as long as some fatwas supporting them exist. They are sometimes defended as a part of the heritage, the wretched heritage that kills innocent lives again and again without any deterrent or punishment.
Leniency and hesitation in dealing with these groups is still dominating the situation in various forms. This is one of the main reasons for their wildness and madness, which is strengthening these groups. If the language of confrontation is not changed into real actions, determining the relationship of all these groups with the religion, it will not change anything and will remain the same.
