Very sad to see all that crappy buildings taking over the historical sites at Mecca and Medina. I am particularly shocked to hear about the Ottoman fort overlooking the Kaba being torn down. I did my Hajj at 2001 of many things, that fort stands out. Sad to hear it's gone.

While I hate the Saudi's attitude to and their justification in eliminating so called "idolatory" to make room for high rise, I appreciate their effort to prevent the Prophet(SM) and other important figures graves to turn into a worshipping shrine or Majar. It's the only good thing they have done.
