Просто к сведению

Нашла любопытное про суфизм:

The centuries-old mawlid, a mainstay of the more spiritual and often mystic Sufi Islam, was until recently viewed as heretical and banned by Saudi Arabia's official religious establishment, the ultraconservative Wahhabis. But a new atmosphere of increased religious tolerance has spurred a resurgence of Sufism and brought the once-underground Sufis and their rituals out in the open.

Analysts and some Sufis partly credit reaction to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the United States for the atmosphere that has made the changes possible. When it was discovered that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi, the kingdom's strict Wahhabi doctrine -- which had banned all other sects and schools of thought -- came under intense scrutiny from inside and outside the country. The newfound tolerance Sufis have come to enjoy is perhaps one of the most concrete outcomes of that shift.

"This is one of the blessings of September 11. It put the brakes on the [Wahhabi] practice of takfir , excommunicating everyone who didn't exactly follow their creed," said Sayed Habib Adnan, a 33-year-old Sufi teacher. The government "realized that maybe enforcing one religious belief over all others was not such a good idea."

Вот так как-то.

Очень коротко по-нашему:
То есть суфии были запрещены в Саудовской Аравии, стране ультраконсервативного вахаббизма (то самое течение, которое исповедовали, насколько я понимаю, террористы). И только после 9/11 в Саудовской Аравии суфиям стали выходить кое-какие послабления, которые сами суфии относфят за счет того, что после этого ужасного теракта правительство наконец-то поняло, что строгое поддержание одной религии, подавляющей все остальные, не самая лучшая идея.

И суфийская мечеть недалеко от Граунд Зиро -- памятник террористам???
