Norway’s former ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Carl Schiøtz Wibye, analyses the Saudi Arabian Wahhabism as a sect, a sunni-extremist deviation within Islam that today is causing problems. He explains how oil money has been fuelled into exporting radical ideology, that in many aspects breaks off from traditional Islam.
He states that these Wahhabi-extremist trends first permeated the Middle East in the 1970’s and 80’s, and now is sifting into Europe and fuelling hatred between groups in the West. His recent book, in the Scandinavian language, entitled “Terrorens Rike” in an indepth study of how a sect from the Arabian desert – Wahhabism – hijacked Islam and radicalized it to the point that regular Muslims no longer recognize their traditional faith. The irony being that the Wahhabi strongest ally in the region is the USA.
Wibye states that the Wahhabi’s have made changes in the holy Quran in order to radicalize its message, and create lack of respect for minorities.
