Saudi Billionaire Begins Construction of ‘Western Mecca’ in Wyoming

RIYADH, Sb. – When Sheikh Mohammed Kamel Alsaud purchased the small town of Buford, Wyoming from a Vietnamese entrepreneur last year for $1.8 million, his lifelong dream of bringing Islam to America was one step closer to becoming a reality.

“I have fond memories of spending summers on the Mediterranean aboard my father’s yacht. On occasion we’d visit the Gulf [of Mexico] to entertain his American clients,” Alsaud told Forbes magazine. “Even as a child, I was always struck by the distinct lack of mosques in the U.S., but they say what America lacks in mosques, it makes up tenfold in prisons.”

Alsaud has hired the Binladen Group, a Saudi Arabian construction company founded in 1931 by Mohammed Bin Laden, to develop the $650 million project. Dubbed the ‘Mecca of the West’ by Shiekh Alsaud, the site is designed to replicate the original Mecca, birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad and the most sacred site in the Islamic faith, located in Hejaz, Saudi Arabia.

Like the original holy city, only Muslims are permitted access to the ‘Mecca of the West.’ However, Alsaud told Forbes, “Our non-Muslim patrons will have the option to view the holy shrine using high-end telescopes installed at way-points around the perimeter.” The telescopes, according to Alsaud, are pay-per-view and cost $15 to operate. “A fair price in comparison to that which our Muslim brothers and sisters will pay to make their annual pilgrimage to Buford,” Alsaud said.

Shiekh Alsaud plans to have the entire complex up and running in time for the next annual Hajj pilgrimage. “As a way of giving thanks to Allah, I’ve pledged to cover travel costs and lodging for the first five hundred-thousand pilgrims who dutifully put their lives on hold next year in honor of the Prophet Muhammed,” Alsaud said.

Mecca of the West will hold its grand opening at the beginning of the second week of September, 2016. The site, which has a maximum capacity of 750,000, will include a Chic-fil-A restaurant, a small hospital, and twelve hotels, four of which are five-star establishments.

  1. If pilgrims are to go there in the excess of 500,000 how does the American government screen them… And how do you know these Muslims will return to the countries they came from,, this is very dangerous and has to be monitored and looked into right now..

    1. You are right. Isn’t that right across I-80 from the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest? He can’t expand that way. It looks like there are Ranches and private properties on the other side. Has he tried to buy these or has he bought them? It’s a nice area, no Muslims, that isn’t densely populated except the traffic on I-80. It’s not far from Cheyenne or Laramie. It’ only about 2 hours from Denver. It is hard to believe that this would be a site of pilgrimage. Mecca, the Dome of the Rock, Medina…Vedauwoo.

      It really is God’s country there. It would be a shame to see it defiled.

  2. We do no want your vision brought here! Islamm is evil and will not be tolerated.I spit on your prophet as do all of America

  3. Copy/paste this everywhere!
    Not only should their Mosques (Where they hide their ammo for their terrorists supplies) be shut down, but all the immigrants should be kept away.
    EVERYONE knows these people were raised to be lawless and godless, and they dont have anything to stop them from killing all innocents.
    People everywhere in Germany, Europe, Britain are calling out for help from these murdering slaughtering mutulating rapists.
    Why would anyone want them among us?
    People are being killed, and people are crying out for help, because they know they will be killed sooner or later. This is living terror!
    Trolls are scanning the Conservatives blogs, to see who they can complain and cry about and get them banned for the truth!
    And politicians sit by and worry about campaigns, while the Government does nothing, and other rich elite adds to the terror. Our people need help, and they need it yesterday.
    And before you come back at me for what “Early Crusaders” did, they did evolve with Jesus New Testament covenant of love and human rights. Islam has been 1500 years behind the times, and never evolved.

    Not being tolerant of gang rape is Islamophobic says libtard brainless.
    Terrified young lady gets censored and banned for trying to reach out for
    help. Why are these people allowed to feast on rape, killing, and
    mutulations, to say and do what they want, and we get censored and banned
    for it, if we try it? Americans we are living in sick times. Our world is selling us out to sick
    arabs. Get ready to meet your

    1. You’re forgetting something…the First Amendment. The Founders SPECIFICALLY wrote it that way because they were Deists…& the Statue of Liberty (actually the Goddess Columbia, given to the Freemasons of America by the Freemasons of France) was to remind the Masons , who were being thrown out of England at the time, that they had a place of refuge.
      Is Masonry a religion? Absolutely! Read “Morals and Dogma” by Manly P. Hall, as well as Albert Pike’s writings in the 1700’s–early 1800’s. The Grand Architect is Lucifer.

      So, with that in mind, they CANNOT desecrate this land any more than it’s already been desecrated by the Freemasons! This is NOT a Christian country, though the Founders made it appear so in order to appease the population living here at the time.

      Why do you think King George kicked them out of England??

  4. Has the Wyoming government gotten so greedy that they sell American soil to somebody who is going to import an unknown number of muslims into this country…. This is similar to Al Gore selling to Algaziera his TV channel.. Greed Greed Greed…. Is that what’s driving people who want millions to sell out to people who will harm us one day? I understand, The Chinese and other countries have bought properties in the US but they would come and go but when something like this comes to “our” country, it will stay and spread… That’s the foot in the door folks and I, for one, do not want it…

  5. It will have a chic filet? really? A Christian own and run business there? I find than very odd. Hass Chic Filet sold out?

  6. What do they mean only Muslims are allowed. They would start screaming discrimination if the tables were turned. They are like the ungrateful guest you had over for dinner but doesn’t end up leaving for another week and then proceeds to complain that you aren’t a nice host. They have to go back where they came from!

    1. I guess that’s what one spot on the road looks like from a traffic camera at night maybe in a storm. But a lot of the area looks just like it does in the picture in the article. It is really beautiful there. I would hate to see it ruined that way but it does not seem plausible because:
      -as someone here has posted, the Bin Laden company does not list it as a project site
      -I drove by there in November and didn’t see massive construction
      -Ross says that he drives by there several times a week and he apparently has not seen signs of this
      -as Carla S said, Buford is really just a small plot of land
      -the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest is nearby and would prevent building on that area
      -it is hard to lend credence to the notion that a site with no history or connection with Islam would be used as a site of pilgrimage, it simply makes no sense
      -there are probably environmental impact studies and statements that would have to be made, including impacts on the National Forest
      -this is not mentioned in the regional media

  7. We must stop this. They will rape and kill us. Most will not go back. but will infiltrate our country. Do everything to stop this ❤️

  8. The successful advance of Islam (also known as “outer jihad” or usually just as “jihad”, whether violent or nonviolent and regardless what person or entity is doing it), is an ACT OF WAR, and is deadly to our entire culture of constitutional freedom, the lives of this and future generations and is an ACT OF WAR because the end result of the successful advance of jihad is the same end result achieved by Islam if the USA had lost an all out war with armed Islamic forces. To advance Islam or the surrender to Islam , all that is required is that nothing be constitutionally done to stop the advance of Islam.

  9. This is AMERICA! Not some playground for Muslims! I hope this isn’t true. I don’t think Donald Trump will allow this after he becomes President. Every American in America will object to this! Has everyone gone mad? I believe the mosques will be coming down soon as Mr. Trump becomes President.

  10. my God, you people are so impressionable. I drive past Buford multiple times a week. It’s literally on top of a tabletop mountain, with horrible winds and weather. You couldn’t find a worse spot possible for any sort of development. Untwist your underwear and take off the tinfoil, people. It’s gonna be ok.

    1. There would have to be a huge amount of construction going on there right now and it would be obvious. I didn’t see massive signs of construction there in late November.

      1. Your comment is typically inaccurate, incoherent and unerlnssaeicy ad hominem. 1) I’m a liberal Democrat. 2) I wrote that it’s unimportant if this anonymous Republican congressman was mocked, not that I support him. 3) What difference would it have made to this discussion if I actually was a Republican? Feel free to respond to any of this, MJ, if you have a reasonable response.

  11. Well thanks heavens this land was in private hands, rather than owned by the BLM, where just anybody could have used it. Amiright?

  12. Blasphemous weird Wahhabis. Not even reps table, seems more like blasphemy. Offensive to Muslims more than non-Muslims, this is a gross affront.

  13. This should not happen there are American workers out there who should be in charge of all the oil rigs on American soil. Then give Americans jobs. Clue here Wyoming is American soil.

  14. I wasn’t finished commenting . Saudi or anyone that is not American get out this is not your home this is Americas home the people who are Americans home not yours

  15. FIRST THING SHAME ON THE TRADEREST BASTARD THAT SOLD IT AND THE STATE OF WYOMING FOR ALLOWING IT..I HOPE THE CONTRACTORS WHO ARE AMERICANS ROT IN HELL IF THEY HELP BUILD IT..ALL THEIR DOING IS STARTING WORLD WAR 3 CONSIDERING ONIGGA PULLING THIS SHOOT TO KILL IF U DONTGIVE UP UR GUNS SHIT

  16. This is should be the great warning sign for Christians to get right with God in Jesus name and follow Him seriously right now.

  17. The US has prisons but how many Muslims are running around Saudi Arabia missing a hand and a foot? I hope it rains pork on the Hajj barbarians.

  18. A US mecca is the last thing we need in America as we batter to even preserve the Constitution of our country, and experience hateful jihad assults from those same Islamic cults.

    And to think thst Arabia would plant such a muslim attraction in the middle of the beloved American West country, just feels like another insult from the terrorists within!
    I do NOT support, and have no hesticensy in saying that this is NOT going to be received well or easily accepted by American citizens!

  19. THIS IS A FAKE STORY. HOW WOULD I KNOW? I AM LOCAL GUY LEASING THE GAS STATION FROM PHAM DIHN NGUYEN “THE VIETNAMESE ENTREPRENEUR” THAT OWNS BUFORD PHINDELI TOWN. TIS ARTICLE IS FAKE COMING FROM THE HORSES MOUTH.

    1. Satire my ass!
      This is outright FRAUD and disinformation.
      Satire has a point to make.
      What is the point of this story anyway?
      That the author was able to make it all up and put it out there?
      Such genius and insight!

      All this is a complete waste of time, as if people do not have enough CRAP to have to sift through to get at the truth.
      People who publish CRAP like this have a severe mental illness and do the world a grave disservice.

      We are quickly coming to a time when it will be no joke, no one will be laughing, and creeps doing crap like this, just to muddy the waters, will end up on lists that no one in their right mind wants to be on.

  20. some one needs to drive a herd of pigs to that land and slaughter some of them. that way, the land will be spoiled for the building.

  21. People people. It’s a fake story. Do you guys just react without checking stuff out? Read the bio on the guy who wrote the article. Christ people, you Really Are Sheeple!

  22. This story is false and you are hurting our small business. Buford is run by a local Wyoming family and this lie is causing people to boycott our business. Your lie will shut us down.

  23. Most of these comments are so sad.

    First, if folks would actually read the material, it is satire. Like a joke!

    Second, what racist anti-American wants to ban people because of their religion? This is the United States, for crying out loud.

    Third, folks really ought to take some time and learn a bit about Islam. Jesus is a Saint in Islam (unlike Judiasm).

    Lastly, if you want to know what traveling and living in an Arab country like Jordan is like, visit Utah outside of Salt Lake City and Park City. Tallest buildings: mosque in Arab world, Mormon temple in LDS land. Also located adjacent to schools so children can receive religious training during the day.

    No drinking alcohol and other dietary restrictions. Both LDS and Islam believe in a saint after Jesus. Strong family values. Women not quite equal in many sects, and some sects support polygamy.

    Like several folks have said, the racists who responded to this piece were set up and had. It would be blasphemy for a Saudi to replicate the holiest site in Islam. And, do you think it is Christian to denigrate an entire swath of God’s people? How sad.

  24. This is for anyone who does not believe that the US has a problem with Islam. Try to build a church in Saudi Arabia some time and see how far you get but it is fine, it appears, for these heathens to build a Mosque in Wyoming.
    I have been to St. Peter’s in Rome on three different occasions and never had to prove that I was a Catholic, a Christian or anything else but this is how your “tolerant and forgiving Muslims” handle their most holy site.

    WARNING: Non-Muslims are strictly prohibited from entering the city of Mecca. The penalty is deportation from the country. Documentation will be checked upon entry and anyone not showing proof of being Muslim will be denied entry. As a solitary exception, the Mecca bus terminal (outside city limits) is open to all.

    I can’t hardly imagine a group of blond haired Lutherans going into St. Peter’s Cathedral and doing this but for Muslims it is as natural as getting up in the morning, if they are lucky enough to survive the night. I’m reasonably sure even Southern Baptist would never consider doing what your peace loving Muslims did to their own holy of holies.

    “Thirty years ago, hundreds of Islamic extremists walked into the Grand Mosque in Mecca. They slipped weapons into the holiest site in Islam, and they started one of the events of 1979 that still affects the Muslim world today.
    […]And there were hundreds, maybe more than a thousand casualties. A large part of the structure was severely damaged. Saudi government had to use tanks, artillery. At the very end, they had to bring in the help of the French special forces. And the French special forces brought this poison gas that was pumped in the basement of the Grand Mosque, flushing out the last rebels.”

  25. WAIT A MINUTE! BIN LADEN CONSTRUCTION GROUP, SAUDI BILLIONAIRE, ALLAH,MUSLIMS, IN WYOMING?. REALLY, MECCA OF THE WEST, IN THE AMERICAN WEST? MUSLIM PEOPLE WILL HAVE A MOSQUE WHERE NON MUSLIM PEOPLE WILL BE DENIED ACCESS?.WHY HAS THIS IDEA EVEN BEEN ALLOWED TO TAKE SHAPE?. OBVIOUSLY, THIS IS ALL A PART OF THE PLAN TO BRING EVEN MORE UN-VETTED MUSLIMS INTO AMERICA!! THE LINE IN THE SAND SHOULD HAVE BEEN DRAWN A LONG TIME AGO!! AMERICA WILL STRUGGLE THROUGH THIS, AS IT BECOMES ANOTHER OBAMA MESS THAT WE WILL HAVE TO CLEAN UP!! I PERSONALLY THINK THAT MR. OBAMA HAS ONCE AGAIN FAILED EVERY AMERICAN BY ALLOWING THESE SORTS OF THINGS TO HAPPEN!!. THIS PRESIDENT DOES NOT HAVE AMERICA OR HER CITIZENS IN HIS HEART OR SOUL!.HE SHOULD BE KEEPING AMERICA SAFE, YET HE CONTINUALLY CATERS TO THE MUSLIM PEOPLE!!.THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF OF MR. OBAMA CATERING TO THE MUSLIM PEOPLE!. THE MUSLIM PEOPLE WANT TO DOMINATE THE ENTIRE WORLD AND IMPOSE SHARIA LAW UNDER THEIR SUPPOSED RELIGION OF PEACE, “ISLAM”!. I AM AN AMERICAN, AND THIS IS SO WRONG AND PUTS EVERY ONE OF US IN GREAT DANGER!!. AT THIS POINT IN TIME, WE SIMPLY CAN NOT TAKE THESE KINDS OF RISKS!. THINK ABOUT IT, IF WE ALL HAVE TO COMPLETE A BACK GROUND CHECK IN ORDER TO PURCHASE A GUN,SHOULDN’T MUSLIM PEOPLE HAVE TO COMPLETE A BACK GROUND CHECK BEFORE THEY ARE ALLOWED INTO OUR COUNTRY?.

  26. This story is a hoax. It is not true. Beware of those who want to incite fear. They are doing a psych op on us trying to get us all into a fear mode so we can be easily controlled.

  27. I drove past Buford last Saturday, no signs of construction at all, so this story is a hoax. If it were true, construction would have to already be underway. And Buford is NOTHING like the Mediterranian. Interstate 80 is closed a lot during the winter due to snow storms. The main clue that this is a hoax was the mention of Chic-fil-a being built there.

  28. Businesses refuse service to muslims. 1954 u.s. law says muslims not allowed in u.s.
    Need yo start burying pigs and spreading pigs blood on and around on this assholes property
    The only good muslim is a dead muslim. Allah is fucking satan

  29. I WONDER IF HE IS BUILDING A MANSION FOR THE Obama family as payment for all the efforts Obama has put forth to accommodate the Muslim brotherhood. It must make Obama feel all warm and fuzzy every time he does something for his brothers, i.e., the November proclamation just made, which is a direct stab in the back to our Native Americans who helped establish the first Thanksgiving, and to the descendants of the Pilgrims who shared the bountiful feast. Well, he can proclaim all he wants, but this is America bro!! Who are the idiots who sold the land in the first place? And how fat are their pockets now? With total disregard to the feelings and wishes of friends and neighbors, they probably laughed all the way to the bank!!
