Washington, Nov 19, 2004 -
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Rep. Rohrabacher Calls Upon Saudis to Bar Terrorists From Holy Sites (Washington, D.C.) Rep. Rohrabacher introduced a resolution today condemning the acts of terror against Margaret Hassan and Theo van Gogh by Muslim extremists, and asking the government of Saudi Arabia to bar anyone who commits or supports such acts from Islam’s holiest sights. “Saudi Arabia is in a unique position to demand accountability from the adherents of Islam by marginalizing extremists who take life in the name of the Muslim religion,” Rohrabacher said. “Anyone who commits an act of terrorism, or advocates terrorism, should not be allowed into Mecca.”
