Quoting Gkirk (Thread starter):
it violates Islam

this hand-kissing is/was NOT in accordance with Islam as you only bow to GOD, so that King Abdullah is completely correct in stopping that outdated nonsense. King Mohammed VI in Morocco also stopped it when coming to power. So that it now becomes virtually terminated in the Arab World.
