It is already kind of glassed, at least in spiritual sense. As a muslim, I can’t even look at the abominations Saudi government is doing in those holy sites. They destroyed all the culture, all the heritage. They have poor understanding of aesthetics, taste and zero care for the historical fabric of these sites. I mean look at those tall buildings, right next to Kabaa itself, they look like a they are from another planet. And one of those skyscrapers looks like the clock tower in England(Big Ben). Seriously? Kabaa is a simple building, simplest you can see. There are no excesses to it, it is small, humble; opposite of shiny skyscrapers. Not only that, we have 15 centuries of islamic art and architecture that is not taken into account at all. Nothing they built fit there.
Not only that, they have destroyed and still destroying most of historical sites. They have destroyed many ancient cemeteries, old buildings…etc, historical fabric of that modest city of islam. Islam is about social justice, equality and modesty. Macca and Kabaa was a city symbolizing all these values. For example, for centuries, it was forbidden to build tall buildings to that city. Even at its peak during golden ages of islamic civilization, muslims could look at this city during their hajj, and remember to be modest, and remember the virtues of simplicity, humbleness.
This is just one example of how destructive the development of that city is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajyad_Fortress .They are building some shopping site there! Not to mention the cancerous ideology they are spreading in islamic world (Wahhabism/salafism), which for many in west has been equalized with Islam itself.
And historically, Kabaa was invaded, bombarded and people were killed inside beginning first century of Islam (by Hajjaj, despite clear orders by quran telling not to even kill a bug in that area), building was brought to destruction. . “Non-muslim” mercenaries were allowed in by Saudi government. Physical destruction is secondary problem. That site is now a masquerade of once a symbol of a faith that united races, languages like never before and gave world so many wonderful things.For me, in its current state, that site is already glassed.
I am pretty sure, as I am typing those, some 75 year old saudi prince is right now fucking his 16th wife/mistress or one of his boy servants facing window looking at Kabaa on 74th floor of one of these tall buildings; that is how they get their hard on. By insulting everything dear to muslims.
