The conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran downgrades the Islam to a game of the mighty ones

MeccaThe conflict between Saudi Arabia and the Iran about the Hajj, the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, is looking like a kindergarten game than a serious issue between educated people. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the leaders of Saudi Arabia "unbeliever", a commander put the Kingdom on the same level with the arch-enemy Israel.

Already this fact shows that the self-appointed leaders of the Islamic religion cannot get taken serious. This leaders are using only the religion from the crowd for their own favors and by doing this they forget their own teachings. They are clearly stating with their behavior that their own rules are only valid for masses but not for themselves.

It also shows that these leaders are not able learn from the mistakes of others and only want to extend their own claim to power. The history from other and older religions shows clearly the results for such a conduct. For example have been the religious wars in Europe a few hundred years ago, which got started for the reason of intrigues done by the church. It resulted in a strict separation between church and state without any power of the religion. Some countries have even forbidden the religion.

As long as the crowd will believe their power-hungry leaders, there will no peace in their area. As soon the crowd will start to use their own God given brain such irresponsible leaders will have an easy game with their own propaganda. Maybe it will take a few hundred years until the crowd is ready to send their stupid leaders to the counterpart of God, however they will call him. Not one religion teaches that unbelievers needs to get killed. That is only an invention from irresponsible, stupid and power-hungry people. Don't forget such people have copied the holy scripts over more than 1,000 years and changed the content to their own favor. Normal people could even not read or write during the old time.

Khamenei, the religious and political leader of Iran called on to rethink the management of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca by Saudi Arabia. He argued on Monday, among others, the death of thousands of pilgrims in the past year. In a stampede over 2,000 people were killed. Moreover Khamenei berated the leaders of Saudi Arabia as infidels and murderers. "The Muslims should the blasphemous and (world powers) dependent nature of the Saudis recognize world," Khamenei said in his annual message of Hajj.

Saudi Arabia and Iran are regional rivals. Iran considers itself as a protector of the Shiites, Saudi Arabia as a protector of the Sunnis. The leadership in Tehran supported the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the royal family in Riyadh, however, the rebels fighting against Assad.

Riyadh broke off diplomatic relations with Tehran after applied protesters stormed the embassy of the country in Tehran. Previously, 47 people in Saudi Arabia got executed as "terrorists", among them the prominent Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr. His beheading sparked massive tensions between the two Islamic powers.

The source from the conflict shows exactly that mighty ones are using the religion for their own favor and are thinking that they have the same level as God - masters of life and death - while they are even using the real terrorists for increasing their own influence. Do you really think that you'll meet such people in paradise? Such people will end up in the hell - in the torture chamber from the devil.

Nobody is asking you here to change your believes. You'll are only asked to use your own brain and rethink about the basic teaching from each holy script, where is written that you shall live in peace, accept the opinion from others and don't kill.
