I think it was meant to be true, because it is.

World wide caliphate indeed.

From what I see here, it's funny because it redicules a holy site and a religion, and true from a fictitious prespective, some people need to grow up

You must separate two things:
1. This is a holy place for muslims. We are not touching exactly this topic.
2. The architecture level of the complex is somewhere between Disneyland, and "f... this place we will build something that from visibility and dominant point of view is much more important than Kaaba".
There are some rationality proportions that should be equal. The effect of this chaos is visible also in the comments above.

How come the government of KSA is so tasteless and ridiculous?
Its arrogant that the Saudi's leaders have not consulted with the broader Muslim community in the world on such construction

yup, that kinda ugly structure dominating the mecca skylines definitely didn't appear as it is psychologically, symbol of muslims unity all over the world, esp the pinnacle, if i were the part of the design team, i would reject it... the more skyscrapers in saudi arabia, the nearer we are towards the doomsday, aiyaa... be prepared my muslim brothers n sisters...
