Why is Christian persecution in Saudi Arabia ignored?

There are 12 comments on the www.fosters.com story from Apr 13, 2012, titled Why is Christian persecution in Saudi Arabia ignored?. In it, www.fosters.com reports that:

The Grand Mufti Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah of Saudi Arabia had recently been reported to say it is "necessary to destroy all the churches in the (Arabian Peninsula) region." Pretty shocking news since the Arabian Peninsula encompasses Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Yemen. Furthermore, the grand mufti is the highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia and has world influence on Muslims. Yet, an Internet news search showed only the Washington Times and Houston Chronicle posted an editorial condemning his barbaric words ...

from fosters:

"According to the USCIRF report 'systematic, ongoing and egregious violations of religious freedom continue in Saudi Arabia.' The report says,'More than 10 years since the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, the Saudi government has failed to implement a number of promised reforms related to promoting freedom of thought, conscience, and or belief. The Saudi government ... prohibits churches, synagogues, temples, and other non-Muslim places of worship, uses in its schools and posts online state textbooks that continue to espouse intolerance and incite violence, and periodically interferes with private religious practice.'

"Furthermore, the report says,'The government continues to prohibit foreign religious leaders from seeking and obtaining visas to enter Saudi Arabia.'

"Catholic and Orthodox Christians are especially impacted by this since they need clergy in order to receive the holy sacraments. It is estimated there are about 800,000 Christians in Saudi Arabia. Most are Catholic Filipinos on work visas ..."

... and the Saudis treat them like chattel.

Nobody should take these Muftis seriously.Every Muslim cleric thinks only he has the authority on Islam and go on barking some type of fathwa or orders on other Muslims(which no body obeys).There is no unity or unaimity among Muslims.Each one wants to pull Islam to their end and the result is disagreement and killings.This the reason, Islam cannot be a world religion at any cost.

Recently the Saudis detained about two hundred Ethiopian Christians for praying in public. The same barbarians are alowed to build thousends of mosques all over the world especially in the western world with the help of those shameful liberals. We all have to be ashamed of ourselves for not standing up for the next generation and allow these vile and evil religion to muscle in our enlightned civilisation.
