Saudi releases 500 al-Qaida sympathizers
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, April 26 (UPI) -- Saudi Arabia released 500 al-Qaida sympathizers after they underwent religious counseling to bring them back to the moderate path of Islam.
Member of the counseling committee Mohammed Bin Yehya Nujeimi was quoted Wednesday by al-Jazeera as saying the committee, affiliated with the interior ministry, had conducted dialogue with 800 Saudis who had allegedly sympathized with prisoners convicted in cases of terrorism.
Out of the total, 500 were released following intensive studies and counseling sessions which moderated their views.
Nujeimi said those released were informed that they will be closely monitored by security forces, in addition to being continuously contacted by members of the counseling committee.
I suppose if Bush can help 140 Saudis leave the U.S. immediately after 9/11, then it's hard to argue with what the Saudis are doing.
