It is amazing how quickly any mention of the Shias in this and other parts of Saudi Arabia is removed from here. Not only in Saudi Arabia, but also here in the cyber-space, the truth about the religious identity of the citizens are glossed over. Until 2003, the invasion of Iraq and the liberation of the Shia's there, no mention of the Shias could be made in or outside of the Saudi Arabia without serious ramifications to the person. Hufuf located in the Hasa/Ahsa district--one of the oldest centers of Shiism in the Arabian Peninsula, cannot be stated to have any Shias on the pages of Wiki without the statement being quickly removed and replaced with either blank or some abusive states about the Shias (the last time, the vandal who changed the information on Ethnography of the region, mentioned that there were some of the "ghulats" (apostates) still living in the area! One can only hope that the motto of "Live and let live" would some day make its debut in Saudi Arabia and the minds of the Wahhabi zealots. Deus Vult! IzadyIzady (talk) 17:18, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
