*Friday 10, 2006 Saudi cleric would not settle for less than the trial of the cartoonist.
Speaking to hundreds of faithful at his Friday sermon, Sheik Abdul Rahman al-Seedes, the imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, called on the international community to enact laws that condemn insults against the prophet and holy sites. "Where is the world with all its agencies and organizations? Is there only freedom of expression when it involves insults to Muslims? With one voice...We will reject the apology and demand a trial," Al Riyadh, a Saudi daily newspaper, quoted al-Seedes as saying.As Saudi cleric rejects peaceful retreat I expect a fresh round of violence and frenzy across the globe. Sigh!
