Dr James M. Dorsey, Senior Fellow at RSIS, discussed the changing worldview of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his UAE counterpart Mohammed bin Zayed. Mr Dorsey said that their views are those that rejects any political expression of Islam, propagates a religious duty to obey the ruler without exception, represses freedom of expression and dissent, yet leaves unchallenged religious concepts such as notions of infidels and slavery that are viewed by Muslim reformers as well as significant segments of Arab youth as obsolete.
…Dr. James M. Dorsey, a Non-Resident Senior Associate at the BESA Center, is a Senior Fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University and co-director of the University of Würzburg’s Institute for Fan Culture.
