This video describes the damage Najdi Wahabi-Salafi Beduin Islam has done to the Muslim world. The root of the harshness of Wahabi Salafi Islam is in their beduin Najdi characteristics. Why Islamophobes go nuts if you say Najdi Beduin Wahabi Islam doesnt represent mainstream Isalm. The pre-colonial Islam is Sufi Islam.
