Mecca redevelopment sparks heritage concerns

I can't imagine the level of outrage, chaos and destruction if it were a Christian country doing half of the things the evil Saudis do. What could be the reason for the difference?

I like how one of the blogger put it:

""Most imposing is the Royal Mecca Clock Tower, a 120-floor hotel that resembles London's Big Ben" Don't forget to fix the date permanently at 570AD ... :D

They have too much money....it corrupts. 
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
