    A well placed air burst should take care of this stupid clock.

    Why exactly would we want to bomb a clock?

    Giant Mecca clock seeks to call time on Greenwich - Telegraph
    Even a broken clock is right twice a day, but an Islamic clock which seeks to change the times and seasons is never right. Mecca needs to break their clock, so it keeps time more accurately.

    They built a big clock and copied Big Ben lol, but I don't see anywhere where officially they are asking to change GMT to Arabia time. I think the title and article is a little misleading.

    They could just do what China does, which is ignore the time standards set by the world and set the centre at Beijing time. China spans about 4 time zones, but everywhere is on Beijing time regardless of where you are. It's pretty retarded when you're in western China, it's 4pm in Beijing, but actually 1 in the afternoon where you are.

    Saudi Arabia could just start teaching their kids that their clock is at the centre of time. It doesn't really matter anyway. The whole "middle time" thing is just cultural superiority non-sense, whether it's Big Ben or Mecca. The time differences will still have to apply based on earth rotation.
