More than 2 million Muslims from around the world are expected to travel to Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj, that annual pilgrimage to Mecca that runs this year Dec. 18-21.
Because of the history of violence during the Hajj — some of it extreme — Saudi officials step up security during the period, and last week they concluded what they called the country’s largest-ever anti-terrorism security sweep — an operation that resulted in the arrest of more than 200 suspected al Qaeda militants.

Ask The Imam – Jihad Is Better Than Hajj… Moderate islam will never condemn terrorism, because terrorism is moderate islam. Reality Bytes December 9th, 2007 at 2:37 pm.
