27 Lebanese Christians have been arrested and then deported to Lebanon after being found with Bibles in their homes and praying during the Virgin Mary festival.
They were charged with conducting non-Islamic prayers.
Saudi regime officials have not acknowledged that the Virgin Mary is of an elevated position in the Quran.
Children are also included in the 27 people to be deported, although the exact amount has not been revealed yet.
It was the Saudi religious police who had arrested them in the Al-Aziziyah neighborhood of Mecca.
Saudi Arabia remains one of the most religious intolerant country’s in the world. The state religion is the puritanical radical Wahhabi brand of Islam.

    • We would if Christians didn’t ran secular countries but theocratic-based countries as q’ran is a pure heresy inherited from the gnostics for the parts it tries to copy on the Bible and gnostics were so fucked they believed the world wasn’t created by Jah but by Satan, that’s even why they were labelled heretics… Nevertheless, Jesus warned that after him, there’d would only be false prophets…

    • its because they were in mecca, if they were in any other city it wouldnt be problem, mecca is so crowded and cannot accept any religion except Muslims for safety and traffic reasons.

      • I was even surprised to see this! But Hizbullah decided to stop their jihadist ways a few years ago… And they go on attacking the jews which is exactly the same as attacking christians as christianity is nothing else than a jewish sect and Jesus is a jew…

      • You mean the “bad” Muslims don’t hate Christians. All “good”, devout Muslims hate Christians, Jews, all unbelievers as compelled by Allah’s commands in the Quran and Mohammmed’s Hadith. Al Nusra is Sunni, Hezbollah is Shia. Sunni and Shia consider each other apostates. Helping Christians is for the purpose of using them to defeat Al Nusra, not to protect them. Islam is a sick cult and its devotees are very sick and deserving of our pity if they weren’t so hell-bent on killing the kafir.

          • It is CLEARLY STATED in koran, Ali and Haddiths ae even WORSE! You perfectly know it! Happily, there are much more “bad” muslims than “good” ones or we’d have to do a crusade again…

    • Peter, most if not all Muslim countries respect Christians. Saudi Arabia follows Waahbism, a 300 year old ideology. Muslims DO NOT look up to waahbist Saudi’s. The only reason they have Mecca and Medina is because they attacked and destroyed the Kingdom of Hejaz who used to own it. Waahbist came from the Arabian desert and they’re UNISLAMIC. As a Shia Muslim, I’m telling you that Waahbist are not Sunni, don’t let them deceive you.

      • Most, if not all Muslim countries oppress on Christians and other religions. But not all Muslims approve of this. The shameful oppression ranges from ethnic and religious cleansing to destruction of churches, preventing people from converting away from Islam, murders and theft of property that go unpunished and on and on

      • I agree with the fact that shias are islamicly more genuine than sunnis as Muhammad said on his death bed that all caliphs shall be from his family, so was Ali and so wasn’t Abu Bakr… But it doesn’t changes anything as Muhammad hated jews and christians anyway as he couldn’t subdue us.
        He even told the people of the scripture to judge Q’ran by their book and the fact is that both jews and christians found Q’ran absolutely irrevelant, that’s even why wahhabis totally forbid anyone to have a Bible and for good reason : if you’re muslim, believe in God and read the Bible, you convert to christianism because once you know Jesus, you know he wasn’t a simple prophet but much more and then you know that as Muhammad said, he was truly announced in the Bible, but as a false-prophet!

    • @Peter Lungu : in fact, strict Islam both hate Christians and Jews because Muhammad couldn’t convert’em although he mixed parts of the Torah and the Bible in Q’ran in order to make the old Hubal cult a modern monotheism but both Christians and Jews understood that it wasn’t anything else than a revamped Baal cult made to deceive them and that at the differences of all the prophets, Muhammad couldn’t do miracles and i.e. heal lepers, resurrect the dead so he got mad at them and began to kill all those who refused to convert or pay the Jizya.

      Now, let’s be clear : most of muslims are like everybody : they’re muslims because their parents were before them and aspire to live peacefully, raise their families, love their children, etc etc… Now, there’s another kind of muslims : those who are really into religion, often learn the q’ran by heart since they’re children, pray 5 times every day (as Q’ran says only 3!) and well, there are the Haddiths too and if you already think that some quotes of Q’ran are already into religious hatred, they’re a joke if compared to Haddith (that’s BTW where wahhabists find their “inspiration’ about sex with children, animals, dead humans)

      So you have things like that written in their religious books :
      Quran Surat.9.30 “The Jews say, “Ezra is the son of Allah “; and the Christians say, “The Messiah is the son of Allah .” That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?”
      Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
      Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191) Muslims are born to fight others(2:216-217) Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28) Kill anyone who rejects islam (3:56) Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85) Terrorize nonbelievers 3:151 Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”4:76 Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam (5:33) Don’t be friends to Jews and Christians (5:51) Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12) And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah ( 8:39)
      Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)
      “No Muslim will die without Allah admitting in his place a jew or a christian in the fires of hell.-Hadith Muslim 37.6666

      Etc etc etc…

    • its because they were in mecca, if they were in any other city it wouldnt be problem, mecca is so crowded and cannot accept any religion except Muslims for safety and traffic reasons.

    • This has nothing to do with hate or different in religious beliefs, any foreigner who commit an offence/crime will be deported. The offence committed here wasn’t having a Bible or “conducting non-Islamic prayers” the offence was entering Mecca city, where only Muslims are allowed to be in their. All the roads towrd the city have signs in Arabic and English warning about that, just type on google “Mecca road Muslims only sign”.

      • It’s called APARTHEID 🙂
        It’s clear : being deported for possessing a book which mostly talks about peace and tolerance with stances like “love your enemy” is clearly more an offence than having a parody of this same book saying “Kill the jews and christians unless they convert or pay the jizya”

    • Tolerance of what, uninformed apologist? Go away, educate yourself about the tenets of Islam and then consider your brainless, bleeding heart comment. Ignorant apologists are as much a danger to Western Civilization as are the barbarians driven by their ideology to destroy it. You are worthy of nothing but contempt.

    • You can’t control insane people… The jews are only 14 millions on Earth, half in Israel and Israel has only the around 30th/40th economy… How would they control KSA where there 30M ppl and much more wealth jews have? Face reality! This is bullshit propaganda by islamists.

  1. saud are a western imposition on the saudi people to ensure the flow of cheap oil to the west and israhell and they have not been chosen by the saudi people nor elected by them or the muslim world, nothing to do with Islam bcoz their behaviour is in complete opposition to Islamic teachings, they are nothing short of backward ignorant barbaric power hungry zionist western puppets, they DON’T represent muslims!!

    • Oil 300 years ago? Sorry, westerners were running with charcoal at this time! And Israel only exists as a state since 1948… Although these lands belong to them for what? 3200 years?
      But Naem, I see that you’re a real muslim who red the Q’ran : full of hate of the jews and christians, exactly like your al-Qaeda or Da’ish buddies… I makes no difference for us as the result is the same : anything is good to fuel your hatred, especially the fact that your saudi friends haven’t the guts to overthrow the al-Sauds’ and build a guillotine like the french did… But due to the local mindset, you can be sure that extremists will replace them although they’re already pretty extreme! In fact, KSA is a Da’ish that succeeded…
      And BTW, why would israelis be nice for people in a religion that hate them as much if not more than the nazis did? The former grand mufti of al-Aqsa even befriended the nazis and wanted to build death camps in mandatory Palestine…

    • Well, happily, 78% of our “muslims” left Islam and just fake it to not be bothered by some of their family that may be angry about it and most of the others are secularized. The problem is all the salafists/wahhabist/Muslim Brotherhood contaminated ones. Now the most practical for us : let them joint Jihad and as they’re traitors to their countries as they’re from 2nd or 3rd generation or idiots who converted, they have our nationality, so, as traitor, just don”t let them come back and find the peace of Allah, thanks to a drone, a russian cluster bomb or some shell or bullet from SAA or iraqi army

  2. There is something fake and wrong in this article? i’m Saudi and i know for sure that carrying bible or practicing Christianity is not crime in KSA? many compounds in SA have their churches etc,,, I think they deport this guy because he entered mecca without permission ? as non Muslim or even Muslim you are require to have permission to enter mecca. (( praying during the Virgin Mary festival in mecca? )) is like Muslim prying inside the church. it does not make scene.

    • Compounds are Apartheid zones.
      Muslim praying in churches? It happens much more than you think, especially in areas without mosques! The catholic priest who had is throat sliced by wahabbi da’ishbags about 1 month ago even gave churche’s lands to muslims so they could build their mosque on the same terrain lot and used to allow them to do muslim office in his church!
      He was really rewarded by your Allah when these nice wahhabit came with their big knife for him…

  3. This story is full of BS. First of all no non-Muslims live anywhere close within the vicinity of Mecca because non-Muslims are not allowed to enter Mecca, let alone live in it. Second thing is I lived in Saudi Arabia for 29 years in Aramco in the Eastern province and I have seen thousands of Christians practicing their faith in a big gymnasium that is converted into a Church on Fridays. They all have their own bibles and religious ornaments so they were ok with it. I’ve not read this story anywhere but on this deceiving news article of yours which clearly just wants to tarnish Saudi ‘ reputation, and I personally disagree with a lot of issues with Saudi myself. This news speaks FALSE all over.

  4. That not the true reason. The true reason is that they are found in the city of Makkah where the entry of any non-muslim is ban according to the Islamic law. There are many non-Muslims living in Saudi Arabia and you can also see churches in Saudi Arabia, but they are not in the city of Makkah and Madinah.
