This should wake up the moderate Muslims.

U.N. Rights Boss Calls Bombing Near Saudi Holy Mosque An Attack On Islam

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights and a member of the Jordanian royal family, delivered his remarks via a spokesman in Geneva.

“This is one of the holiest sites in Islam, and for such an attack to take place there, during Ramadan, can be considered a direct attack on Muslims all across the world,” he said, referring to the Islamic holy month.

“It is an attack on the religion itself.”

Militant attacks on Medina are unprecedented.

I was hoping these morons would step over the line. I guess it came sooner than expected.

I suspect if they loose the tacit support from the Islamic population at large, their cause would not be sustainable.

Absolutely. This is the worst thing they could have done for their cause. Bomb a holy site during a holy month. Especially on the last day of it. :)

I doubt it will change much except that more money will be funneled into he fight against ISIS. ISIS has been killing Muslims since day 1 of their rise, nothing new there.

Nail on the head. I suspect nothing really changes. Maybe they'll give us the political runaround, but nothing will change.
