Saudi NGO Donates to Poor and New Muslims in Cambodia

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

When was the last time you saw a Christian suicide bomber?
9/11
Please explain!
Hhh are you for sure. Just look at the how the buildings collapse and compare it to a controlled demolition of a building. The buildings didn’t collapse because of the planes obviously.

Not a Christian suicide bomber per se. But by their hands.

The religious affiliation of the Israeli population as of 2016 was 74.7% Jewish, 17.7% Muslim, 2.0% Christian, and 1.6% Druze, with the remaining 4.1% including faiths such as Samaritanism and Baha'iism, and irreligious people with no faith.

And soon the cries of "Allah ackbar" were heard throughout the land.... :head shot:
Plenty of Mosques already in case you hadn't noticed.

Personally, I am not sure this is a good development. I grew up along Kenya's coast, which is predominantly Muslim. The people were pretty laid back though, and I had more than a muslim friend that would sneak in a beer or two and most of the ladies would not cover from head to toe. That all changed when Saudi Arabia started building mosques and Madrases and exporting their hard-core brand of Wahhabism. A lot of women are now wearing Niqab and the tolerant vibe has gone.

P.S.: I prefer the call to prayers to a full-blown Khmer wedding.

Well the biggest muslim-majority country in the area is indonesia. i entered the country the first time in 2003 for 6 months, and i quitted it for Cambodia in 2015.

I can say for sure that the hardline of it is progressing in some areas previously moderate, not for the best. But solidarity always been a thing, and muslim networks make sometimes nice effort to compensate some populations when the state isn't there for them. So, they are filling a hole, and that's progress, when it's not religion-related gifts (reconstruction, healthcare, food donations).

But yeah, i hated the way i could buy fresh beers in almost all minimarkets in 2003, with many young women with no redundant piece of cloth, and the 2015 vibe with lukwarm beers to get only in supermarkets when asking the cashier to get them from the reserve, with more hijabs around.

Hijabs are a nuisance on bikes, because it blinds the sides of the driver's face, making them unaware of incoming vehicules on the sides...and you know the value of driving ethics here.

So, gifts from Saudi Arabia, eh ? That's how they get in. Time to strenghten public schools before they intend to help with biaised coranic schools. But at the end of the day, the power lays in the big guns. And god* knows they're prevalent here.

*or the holy spaghetti monster for what i care

You are right in every point. But it’s not only Kenya. Your description fits almost any Muslim country in the Middle East and North Africa. In the 70ies when my mom was studying, in Kurdistan/ Iraq they used to wear skirts over their knees and sleeveless shirts when it was hot. You would have seen maybe one hijab under 50 girls or women, the others were wearing modern and chic clothes. Now it’s the opposite. They have even lost their taste in wearing chic clothes and hijabs everywhere. It’s obviously not just a phenomenon but definitely a very successful manipulation of the people to creat enemy images. In my opinion the West, Israel and Russia are playing the perfect game to control the world. The Saudis are just puppets.

Awful. Unfortunately a common procedure in Saudi. The crazy thing is that they are even Muslims, Shiites also follow the Quran.

Rather oddly at the time the Australians signed a deal to send a number of migrants here from naru a british muslim charity that had been investigated in the UK for possible terroroism offences and whose boss had mysterioulsy disappeared was advertisning for 20 staff in Phnom Penh.
I have heard many umours of ties between the muslim seperatists in thailand and philipines with Muslims in Cambodia but never seen any evidence.
What is far more scarey for me though is the appearance of what look like mormons with their ties and bicycles and crsip white shirt roaming the streets around BKK1 to BKK3 and accross to Olympic :stir:
