Fundamentalism as a Political Tool

Posted on: August 31, 2006 | Views: 63 | Comment

The family of Saud united with fundamentalist Islamic Wahabism in 744 A.D., with the purpose of conquering the Arabian peninsula. This goal was not achieved until 1924 and the modern Saudi Arabian state -- which includes the holy Islam cities of Medina and Mecca, and the enormous reserves of oil under the Arabian desert -- was born in 1932.

Decoding The Past: Secrets of the Koran probes the heart of the book that many outside Islam find mysterious.

The History Channel takes you on this feature length program which serves as a guide to understanding the fundamental work that has shaped Muslim faith for over 1,400 years.
