Another Evil of Western Society

It must be interesting to live in a world where you see conspiracy around every turn. It's a lot easier than personal responsibility. The latest Western distraction to be forced on Muslim society? Greenwich mean time:
Muslim scientists and clerics have called for the adoption of Mecca time to replace GMT, arguing that the Saudi city is the true centre of the Earth.

[...]

One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca's was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.

He said the English had imposed GMT on the rest of the world by force when Britain was a big colonial power, and it was about time that changed.
Just so we have our facts straight: Britain setting up a standardized system of time is bad, but setting up a standardized culture and religion under a global 7th-century caliphate is good. Gotcha.
