Republicans are so insistent on using the term “Radical Islamic Terrorism”. Why? They want a Crusade against all of Islam. They want to paint a picture of all Muslims as terrorists who want to take over the world.
So why would “Islamic Terrorists” attempt to bomb the Prophet’s Mosque? The Prophet’s Mosque is the second holiest site in Islam. It was built by the Prophet’s own hands and houses the tomb of the Prophet Muhammed (عليه سلام) and the remains of the first two caliphs of Sunni Islam.
The attack occurred just before the Breaking of the Fast.
Some reports say the security officers were about to break their fast when a young man, said by Okaz to be 18 years old, approached them to share food. He then detonated explosives.
Qari Ziyaad Patel, 36, from South Africa, who was in the mosque, told Associated Press that people at first thought it was the sound of the cannon fire that marks the breaking of fast.
But he said the ground shook, adding: "The vibrations were very strong. It sounded like a building imploded."
No-one has yet said they were behind the attacks.
They come with the holy month of Ramadan drawing to a close and ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.
Saudi Arabia has been the target of attacks by so-called Islamic State over the past two years.
In June, the interior ministry said there had been 26 "terror attacks" in the kingdom in that time.
This is the equivalent of “Christians” bombing St. Peter’s in Rome.
