Saudi Arabia has given one of the country's highest honors to Dr. Zakir Naik, a well-known Islamist hate preacher from India, the Clarion Project website reports today (March 5, 2015).
The award -- which includes $200,000 -- was given by Saudi Arabia's new king, Salman, for Naik's "service to Islam." Naik is on record for saying that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center was an "inside job," claiming that then-President George W. Bush was responsible for the attack that killed nearly 3,000 people.
Naik has preached that those who leave Islam and promote other religions should be punished by death. He also says that the punishment for homosexuality is death.
As for Jews, Naik declared that they control the United States, and Jews "as a whole," he says, are the enemies of Muslims.
