HUGHES QUESTIONS SAUDIS ON WOMEN AND HATE LITERATURE



Karen Hughes Questions Saudi Ban on Female Driving

That was not all:

Later, during a meeting with top Saudi editors, Hughes pointedly noted U.S. concern that inflammatory literature not tolerant of other religions -- traced to the Saudi government -- had been found in American mosques. Hughes pressed the government to help"find room to respect people of different faiths and different faith traditions."

Hughes added that Americans were upset that it took so long for Muslim clerics to condemn the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. She urged Saudis that"to speak out and be very vocal" when"you have someone committing these acts in the name of your faith."

Freedom House reported earlier this year that it had collected from more than a dozen mosques in the United States some 200 original documents that condemn democracy as anti-Islamic and assert that Muslims are required by Islam to hate Christians and Jews.

Go, Karen, Go!
