1979 Grand Mosque Seizure in Saudi Arabia

The Grand Mosque Seizure on November 20, 1979, was an armed attack and takeover by Islamist dissidents of the Al-Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the holiest place in Islam. The insurgents declared that the Mahdi, or redeemer of Islam, had arrived in the form of one of the insurgent leaders, Mohammed Abdullah al-Qahtani, and called on Muslims to obey him.

I don't recall that ... but considering I was only a kid

Still as an Adult I guess it goes to show that things revolving around Muslim and Religion just haven't changed all that much
