I highly recommend reading Terence Ward’s new book, “The Wahhabi Code.” The book will open the reader’s eyes and minds to the purposeful worldwide export of ultra conservative Islam called, Wahhabism. For decades the doors to this extreme religion have opened wider in order to accommodate the strategic dissemination of religious propaganda and fear mongering. This intentional reality which Ward proposes presents the global community with the prospect of a bleak future. We learn that Qatar and Saudi Arabia continue to play a duplicitous role in pretending to be everyone’s friend, while at the same time continuing campaigns of cruelty and evil. The enforcement of blockades in Yemen which restricts civilian access to food and medicine is a prime example. Ideologically, historians suggest that civil societies welcome diverse communities. Typically, Christians, Muslims, Jews have lived in relative peace and harmony. Sadly, at other times there has been war. Intense battles of nation states (religious) to win the hearts and minds of the people. Now, it is clear, that the goal of the Wahhabist is to weaponize religious beliefs. Reviewing Ward’s insights, it is not hard to grasp the potential of unchecked worldwide spiritual incarceration. Ward suggests that Wahhabist believe any “non-believers” are deviant, decadent and dangerous heretics that deserve no mercy.” In other words, we are all expendable in order to further Wahhabist goals, e.g. 9/11. Now more than ever, we are not sure “who” to fear and “what” may be on the horizon. Ward has produced a well written explanation of the sinister plot the Wahhabist have in mind for us. The book reminds us that too many people throughout millennia have risked death, hidden themselves, changed their names, pretended to be something they’re not or fled to escape tyrannical religious leaders. In today’s modern world why would anyone feel obligated and entitled to subjugate someone, diminish human individuality, sully human dignity, while punishing and physically harming individuals for their spiritual beliefs? Difficult judgments need to be made. How will the world hold the Wahhabist accountable? Michael F Luck PhD.
