Saudi Crown Prince vows to destroy “extremist ideologies”

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman vowed Tuesday to destroy “extremist ideologies” and return to “a more moderate Islam.” Speaking at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh, the prince said: “We want to lead normal lives, lives where our religion and our traditions translate into tolerance, so that we coexist with the world and become part of the development of the world,” he said.

He continued, “Saudi was not like this before ’79… All we’re doing is going back to what we were: a moderate Islam that is open to all religions and people.”

    Good idea! We only have to wait a maximum of 500 years, which is like 25-30 or so generations, for all these people, one bilion in total, to gain the social experience and to reflect the new life values in common conduit and law.
    Right now, the most advanced, like the prince, are like Europe was during early Inquisition times.
