Abdullah al-Kidd

On March 16, 2003, al-Kidd was arrested at Dulles International Airport. Several days earlier, a judge had issued a material witness arrest warrant, and required his testimony in an upcoming trial; the FBI claimed (incorrectly) that al-Kidd had a one-way ticket to Saudi Arabia, and that since no extradition treaty existed between the US and Saudi Arabia, once he left he would not return.

Igniting the fire of war

Since its inception Islam has suffered repeated attempts by some civilisations and individuals to uproot it as an existential threat. At times it is presented as perilous to a particular way of life and at others an obstacle to the pursuit of influence and material gain. The desire by opponents of Islam to stem its influence perhaps cannot be stated more strongly that in the words of the Quran: 

…they will continue to fight you until they turn you away from your religion, if they are capable of doing so … (2:217)
