    A comprehensive study by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on government-funded textbooks in Saudi Arabia found that, despite the kingdom's claims, the texts still
    promote hatred and violence against Jews and Christians.
    The report shows that the monarchy continues to spread anti-Semitic messages.

    The textbooks, translated from the original Arabic, "clearly propagate incitement to hatred or violence against Jews, Christians, Shi’ite Muslims,
    women, homosexual men, and anybody who mocks or converts away from Islam.”,7340,L-5411308,00.html

    It's not very surprizing, there were a lot of Saudis which left to fight in Syria. But that kind of behaviour prepare to the path toward atheism. Excess have always their set back. If I look at the history of my country, we were once the eldest daughter of catholic church, forbidding reformed christianity, and today there is very few practicing catholic, we had excessive nationalism and now people don't even respect anymore their country.
    An excess will always have its counter, another excess.

    As far as I know, there is a lot of atheists in Iran, even if it's impossible to have official numbers.

    There is an old poem which explain the virtue of adaptivness and moderation in a good way :
    The oak one day says to the reed:
    —You have a good right to blame the nature of things:
    A wren for you is a heavy thing to bear.
    The slightest wind which is likely
    To wrinkle the face of the water
    Compels you to bow your head—
    While my brow, like Mount Caucasus,
    Not satisfied with catching the rays of the sun,
    Resists the effort of the tempest.
    All for you is north wind, all seems to me soft breeze.
    Still, if you had been born in the protection of the foliage
    The surrounding of which I cover,
    I would defend you from the storm.
    But you come to be most often
    On the wet edges of the kingdoms of the wind.
    Nature seems to me quite unjust to you.
    —Your compassion, answered the shrub,
    Arises from a kind nature; but leave off this care.
    The winds are less fearful to me than to you.
    I bend and do not break. You have until now
    Against their frightening blows
    Stood up without bending your back;
    But look out for what can be. —As the reed said these words,
    From the edge of the horizon furiously comes to them
    The most terrible of the progeny
    Which the North has till then contained within it.
    The tree holds up well; the reed bends.
    The wind doubles its trying;
    And does so well that it uproots
    That, the head of which was neighbor to the sky,
    And the feet of which touched the empire of the dead.

    The religion is not going to change, it cant.

    But what needs to change is our acceptance of it.
